Why are my clip marker comments disappearing?

I'm coming from Final Cut Pro, so part of my problem might be my workflow, but: Why are my clip marker comments disappearing? I log a lot of interviews and usually log the subject's responses in clip markers, but my comments are disappearing the second I select a different clip! Any reason why this might be? They stick around when I do sequence comments, but they disappear when I add comments to my clip markers when viewing in the source window. Thanks!

    If you go back to the first clip in the Source Monitor, do the comments come back?

    OK, I can't replicate the error here.  The comments stick around until changed.  The only thing I can think of is to go to into Preferences>Media and uncheck "Write XMP ID to Files on Import".  That's purely a guess, though.  You may have to remove the reimport the media.

    Like I said, it works as you'd expect it to here.  Not sure why it isn't for you.

    I've been having this same exact issue. Very Frustrating.

    I keep trying small projects in Premiere to see if it's ready for actual work, but so far I've found it buggy and unusable.

    That's not the norm.  CS6 on a properly configured Windows system is very stable.  If you want to list out some specific issues (besides this one) in a new thread, along with some system details, we may be able to help you smooth things out.

    Jim, that's encouraging to hear. Unfortunately, I'm trying to run it on a mac (Lion). Are you finding that most complaints are coming from people running it on macs?

     

    Believe me, I want to get behing Adobe, but I've restarted more than one project in Avid after finding Premiere super glitchy and inconsistent in it's behaviour.

    I won't say most, but I would say we see more 'odd' behavior on a Mac than we do on Windows.

    I think I have your answer, as I've just experienced the same.  Are you creating "merged clips" for dual system audio before marking?  I can't get the comments to stick on my merged clips, but CAN on my non-merged ones.  It's a real bummer, for sure, as all my audio is always "dual system".  Merged clips are handicapped in many ways out of the box.
