    PPro CS3 3.1.1 update

    RDA972 Level 3
      How is it that nobody is talking about the abovementioned update which is available for download?
      It says : "Leopard compatibility and a few fixes".
      I wonder what these are though.

          Thanks for pointing that out, Robert. Maybe us PC users got something worthwhile, too. Just maybe.

            Can someone list the fixes? It is still not available on the download page.

            Thanks!

              I don't know how they operate today, but back in the mid to late 90's, Avid snail mailed disks with free updates/fixes. A brochure was enclosed that listed the fixes and known problems that still needed to be fixed. Upgrade disks included a brochure that detailed system requirements. They also documented new features, bug fixes, etc.

                Help/Updates does not find it either.

                  There's an update?

                  :)

                    There's a readme file that's installed with the update. It's not just Leopard fixes, it includes other Mac and Windows fixes also.

                    It should go up on Adobe.com soon.

                      "There's an update?"

                      Indeed there is but I forgot to say it's ony available via the Adobe Updater for the time being.

                        It is not. I tried it and nothing is available, unless you mean 3.1.0

                          Can someone list the fixes from the read me file?

                            "I tried it and nothing is available, unless you mean 3.1.0"

                            I sure mean 3.1.1 and I must add it installed without a hitch on my Vista Ultmate machine. In addition to that, the read me file states that no fewer than 30 bugs (both PC & Mac) have been fixed. All I can say is, "Wow, Adobe just keep up the good work!"

                                "Can someone list the fixes from the read me file? "

                                As I said earlier, 30 bugs got corrected. As a result, I am afraid the list is too long to post here.
                                Just navigate to the read me file to see what bugs have been fixed once you have successfully downloaded and installed the 3.1.1 patch via the Adobe updater, I hasten to add.

                                                But, to be perfectly honest, I don't mind being pipped for first place when the time comes to announce the next patch some users are apparently longing for.

                                                    I just want to say thanks to the Premiere team for the recent batch of fixes. Keep up the good work and remember we are grateful but there are other bug fixes that need attention when you're done with 3.1.1.

                                                    I will keep filing bug reports and feature requests.

                                                    THANKS :-)

                                                              In the past, with PS, AI and many other Adobe programs, if there was a requirement for sequential updates being applied (say, 4.1, 4.2, then 4.3), the Adobe Updater would download and install these, in the order necessary. However, most updates (other programs from Adobe, as I'm still on PP2 and there were no updates for it) are roll-ups and include everything that previous issues included. With the few exceptions, Adobe Updater took care of it all.

                                                              Maybe now is the time to get CS3... or wait for CS4, as I'm not doing anything with HD.

                                                                  Now, I'm really frustrated. For as long as the 3.1 patch has been out, I have been trying to install it to no avail. I thought that the release of the 3.1.1 patch would solve that issue today. However, I receive the same "Installation was Unsuccessful" message when I try to install it through Adobe Updater, or through the file I downloaded off the site.

                                                                  Does anyone have any theories as to why this is happening? I have already re-installed my whole Production Premium CS3 software, and that did not solve the issue.

                                                                  Thanks in advance

                                                                      After a second of surprize on my side - I have Adobe Master Collection - I went to Adobe website and downloaded update from there. That time, the update did install correctly.

                                                                      What's more, my export to H.264 with YouTube profile now works fine without the "Multiplexing failed" error.

                                                                      Great job, Adobe!

                                                                          Baz, if you need to see an audio wave form on multi-cam clips, then it isn't "safe" yet :)

                                                                          That single bug adds a good 25% more time to my workflow.

                                                                          I'll switch back to CS3 to try out 3.1.1 on a simple HDV project this weekend. I'm still traumatized by the CS3 capture tool bugs, so I'll let someone else be the guinea pig for that.

                                                                            Could you describe better what's the problem with the multi-cam waveforms, possibly with a screen shot? Or point me to another thread with a full description of the problem? I may have missed the original thread...

                                                                            Thanks

                                                                              I'd be glad to describe it again right here, Wil. It is easy to duplicate.

                                                                              Just create a muti-cam sequence by sync'ing two or more HDV clips in it. I always use the numbered marker option.

                                                                              Then create a target sequence then drop the HDV multi-cam sequence in it. Right click that nested multi-cam sequence and pick Multi-Camera->Enable to "turn on" the multi-cam editing mode.

                                                                              Look at the Audio track of that nested HDV multi-cam sequence in the target sequence. I never see a wave form.

                                                                              I am pretty sure Premiere Pro 2.0 would show the wave form of the audio of an HDV multi-cam sequence sitting in a target sequence and I am pretty sure other forms of media show the audio wave form.

                                                                              Does this make sense? I'm not too sure on the official nomenclature that is used when working with multi-cam sequences.

Just put an HDV clip in sequence "A" then drop that sequence in sequence "B". Sequence "B" won't display an audio wave form from "A".

After you create your multi-cam sequence and enable multi-cam you do not see a waveform. Just hit enter and it will render the audio very quickly and then it will start to render video. Just cancel the render and you should see a wave form. I see a waveform on my computer after I render. Again, I do not let it render all of the video previews, just the audio, which Premiere renders first.

                                                                                  Nivida 7900gs graphicc card, Intel E6400 Core Duo,Gigabytete motherboard.

Seems to me on the last DV multicam project I did, that after doing this, the waveform appeared. I think it forces PPro to create new CFA and PEK files, instead of referencing the ones from the original clips. It is/would be similar to what happens with effected video all of sudden becoming "unrendered" when one sequence is nested within another.

                                                                                    Anywho... worth a shot :)
