No problem David, you guys are unreal when it comes to being on top of things, your company is refreshing when it comes to tech support or customer feedback truely unheard of to be honest. It could have been a week or longer late and still everyone would have understood, you know when you have releases, everyone trusts that the software will do what you say it will and it has never disappointed, I always go into every software purchase from other companies with a grain of salt, hoping it will do at least a majority of what they say it will, Cineform has really changed my thinking in this regard, you say it can do it, it does it, thanks for all the hard work, and I am sure everyone understands.

Cheers
Mike

Drooling....

Waiting to get back to real editing with Premiere Pro 2.0

But not having the upgrade allowed me to get a lot of non video related stuff done today, and I got another chapter finished for the Premiere Pro book I am editing. So you are forgiven.

David, what is your opinion on PPro 2 concerning opening old Cineform projects, have you experienced any problems from the Adobe end not necessarily the Aspect end? I'll go back to cleaning my office/editing area now :)

Thanks
Mike

Michael,

I am working on a couple of books for PPro 2.0 - one as a technical editor and one as a contributing writer. And I am doiing a technical edit on a After Effects 7 book as well. Busy busy.

And I just got an email from Cineform. The upgrade has been posted on the Cineform site.

so it sounds like 2.0 is a worthy upgrade?

I don't know where I was, or why adobe woudln't contact me, but I didn't even know it was released.

Anyway, from their demo it sounds like there are moving away from cineform.
I maybe reading into things incorrectly.
Has this already been covered in the forum?

Yep, to the shagrin (sp) of Cineform they have, don't know why they would, It is a worthy upgrade, the multicam works great, and I personally like the interface, conforming seems much faster also.

While Adobe moved away from using Cineform, I believe that any HDV editors using Premiere Pro 2.0 will be forced to buy Aspect HD 4.0 or suffer the pain of editing slowly, very slowly.

Does the word "Glacier" evoke the correct response? Yes.

Of course, if you upgrade to a superfast dual core or dual processor system with no bottlenecks, you might not notice. But add Aspect HD on top of that monster PC, and it will fly.

Don't get me wrong. Adobe made it possible to edit HDV without an intermediate codec. They just didn't make it possible to do it well. And there are advantages to the intermediate codec as far as quality is concerned. And if you want to edit HDV in After Effects, Adobe has an article on their site that states that it is virtually useless to try. But hey. It can do it. Sure it can. Right.

If you can afford an HDV camera, you can afford the tools to edit the video. Or go back to DV. No offense to Adobe or anyone else, but without Aspect HD, I would really hate to even try editing HDV - even on a Dual-Core system.

a bit of nostalgia

Steven Writes: "But hey. It can do it. Sure it can. Right. "

This reminds me of the good old days when I built my first editing computer (pentium pro 200 - dual processor 128mb of ram and two 9 gb scsi drives)
My friends thought a computer of these propotions was just ludicrous.

It cost 14k with the FAST DV MASTER capture card and Deck.

Adobe Premiere something.0

They kept promising the drivers so I could use my dual processors (on NT)

Lots of bugs.

But I struggled through projects and made it work.

I've been with Adobe since but it's been a rocky relationship. They always seem to promise a little more than they can do reliably.
