Prospect Install CS3

I've attempted to round up all the installation issues facing Prospect and CS3. Can anyone summarize what needs to happen to successfully install Prospect.

I have no ability to open previous Cineform projects (Aspect/CS2), no Cineform presets for new projects, no recognition of Cineform with After Effects.

There are registry "fixes" that are present in the start menu with no explanation of why or when you would use them.

What files are to be in which directories to make this all fly?

UPDATE:

I found an old post from 2007 that had a little zip file that established the correct paths for plug-in installation... so that is now resolved, but the installation of Prospect on its own, did not install to the proper directories.

Now old Aspect projects load, but show as "desktop" editing mode. How do I get Prospect to recognize the Aspect projects?

The install requirements are the same as Aspect HD. It looks for CS2, CS3 or both and installs components where it find them. The only time problem can occurs is when the
install path registry entries for Premiere have been removed, so let's asssume that has happened (happens for a few customers a month.)

---- cut here ----
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Premiere Pro\CurrentVersion]
"Plug-InsDir"="C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Common\\Plug-ins\\CS3\\MediaCore"
--- cut here -----

For a common "C:\Program Files" install path, the above is the registry key that Premiere so plugins know where to install. Cut out the text and save it as fix.reg, an double click on it. Now Prospect HD will install into CS3.

You've got it David.... there was an uninstall of CS2.

Everything seems good with plug-ins.

Can you advise as to how come the playback in Premiere is so dark as opposed to scrubbing or paused in the timeline? I can't recall this being much of an issue with Aspect or earlier versions of Premiere.

Thanks very much for your 'round the clock help.

It is an NVidia card thing. There have a driver update that fixes it (see http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/cineform-...level-bug.html) yet the update will break overlay. If you are using an overlay (sending the preview window to an secondary monitor for full screen output,) just turn off "Force YUV" in the Playback Settings control panel, this fixes 95% for NVidia cards.
