    Sure. it may not be exactly in the spirit of providing trial versions, but nothing prevents you from doing this. But of course keep in mind that once the trial runs out your files will be useless and you will have to buy the products to continue working...

    Except you will have problems rendering video in the trial mode. Like it will not do it.

    And exactly what are you alluding to in your snarky post? There are no limitations in trial versions. If something doesn't work, it's a technical issue.

    Regarding the validity of my post here:  Actually there are several features that are turned off in various products that I have experienced in the past.  Acrobat pro trial for example does not have the ability to create reusable forms that can be edited by acrobat reader. But if you are saying that Adobe Media Encoder will render video in trial mode then this may have been part of my issue from the start as I brought this up in #26 of that issue

    I only brought this up in relationship to what I have experienced with Adobe Media Encoder in regards to running in trial mode.


    I am sorry if I seemed "snarky" it was certainly not my intent and while I can see where you can get that from an initial exchange, since you brought this to my attention:


    I openly and publicly apologize.


    Certainly this is not the place for that. I find that sometimes it does help to laugh at my own situation then let it get to me however. I am honestly trying to solve my issue and during the process of that discovery if there is any information that I discover in the process that may help others... well I hope that is one good reason to post things here.
