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!
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.
I make the comments while in PP, not in prelude or anything. Will PP just not allow me to make comments on clips, only sequences? I was looking around at some other threads and that was the consensus there - but honestly, that just doesn't make sense.
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 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.
