Exactly what kind of connection are you looking for between the programs?
I'd like to be able to load Halion Sonic within (or alongside, if I have the memory (8G)) Premiere to prepare music tracks via my keyboard. My alternative is to complete the Premiere video, and then open it in Cubase to do the sound. Is it always one after the other, or can I work with both together?
Plus, if I can't reasonably use Cubase, should I switch the ASIO settings in Premiere to the ASIO4ALL that Steinberg is set up for, in order to use my keyboard and 5.1 output?
Thanks for your help.
Avid connects Final Cut and Pro Tools pretty well, and I was hoping there were some protocols recommended between you and Adobe. At their last seminar here in New York, Steinberg had a representative and they seemed to want to make their products work well with yours.
When Premiere loads, it hangs on Halion Sonic.dll, unless I open and close it first, presumably to intiate the licensing dongle. If Premiere is reading that, can't I load it?
Premiere Pro can't open other programs within itself. The best it can do is create a link in some cases between other Adobe programs.
But there's nothing to stop you from opening other programs at the same time. Of course, you won't be able to work on the same file at the same time in both. You will need to continue the one at a time approach. At least with that software. Audition and After Effects can create the kind of link you're looking for with audio and video files.
But why, when Premiere opens, does it try to load Halion Sonic.dll? If it can't use the program, what does it need with the library? Is it looking for VST sounds?
