Operating System(s) ?
I think ytou have a major problem seeing as you asked.
It is certainly not CS3
That is what I needed to know. I think it is because I have the CS3 Master Collection as opposed to the production bundle or the PP CS3 stand alone version.
I have XP.
I am not sure why the Master Collection would make any difference.
FWIW - My CS3 NLE is running on XP PR 32bit
Still unclear how many hard drives you have in your system??????
I might add - I also have PremPro 2 running on a P4 'puter. It runs very schweeeet but that system would not manage CS3 and what I throw at it. eg 720 p HD
Only one (80 GB) AFAIK and I have been telling him that is the likely cause of his problems.
The Core 2 Dual system has a 180 GIG drive with well over 100 gigs still left. I am editing DV-25 only.
Let me explain the problem folks. PP 1.0 will indeed drop framesbut PP CS3 has pixilated swirling images when a person moves when viewed on an NTSC monitor. It is not just a droped frames but funky artifacts as I have already mentioned.
When editng DV-25 files is PP CS2 and PP CS3 about the same; give or take a 10-15 percent hit in RT as opposed to my 90% hit in RT? I can understand PP CS3 needing a tad bit more CPU horse power but it sounds like my CS3 is messed up big time.
Maybe time to come up with all your system specs and configuration data. This discussion is senseless without adequate input. You are again confusing the issue by alternating system specs between two different systems.
What is confusing? You need not ask anymore question form me but rather I should ask you folks what your experience has been using PP CS3. I have two systems that work great with PP 1.0 but are not working with the PP CS3. They both act the same. They both have the same Gigabyte Board and they both have Nvidia cards. One is a 7300 GS the Other a 7800. One has 2 gigs of Ram the other has 1.5. The hard drives are both SATA drives with plenty of space and speed for DV-25. I have installed the 3.2 upgrade not that it was asked by anyone. The Master Collection is still shiping with the old 3.0. I think it is the master Collection install. After reading Craigs post I am sure of it. I doubt few Master Collection users bother to use a DV converter or camera loop through when editing but I do.
I have R/T in both systems .
I never ever see a dropped frame in either machines( DV25 for the P4 or HDCPRO HD on the other machine) ... but I also have multiple ESATA drivesin both.
CS3 is not messed up....its definitely your hardware and set up
> rather I should ask you folks what your experience has been using PP CS3
You are now telling us that you get "dropped frames". Thats indicates issues that you were not forthcoming with previously.
So there is only one harddrive in each of those computers? The System Requirements for PPro 3 state that you need a dedicated drive (i.e. not your C: drive and not a partition of the same drive that C: is on) for DV editing.
No No No, you missread. I get great RT with Premiere Pro 1.0. I can do PIPs, titles, CC and transitions all at once. I will get dropped frames if I try to make use of 8 PIPS. All systems will drop frames at some point but CS3 is funky, dropes frames and has no RT. The files play smooth as glass with PP 1.0 but not PP CS3. The hard ware is the same the Direct X and drivers are the same except PP 1.0 works and PPCS3 does not.
I thank you for you feedback.
Put two DV-25 clips on your C: drive and then try to make use of simple CC or even a transition and let me know if they play OK using PP CS3. I bet they do. That test would be so simple for anyone of you to test out. If it works on your sytem (it will) then it should work on mine as well eliminating the HD as the cause ( I know it is not the HD). It is not my system as Craig has mentioned since PP 1.0 works great. I can put the project on another drive but I know it will not make any difference. I can play uncompreesed with my hard drives.
My questions are aimed at find out if PP CS3 should work about the same as PP 1.0 (give or take 10%). That is all I am asking folks. Nothign more nothing less. Craig has given me the asnwer.
Its a fundamental - NLEs need multiple drives .
The fact you are determined to work out side the System Requirements that ADOBE set down for the product is hindering and causing you issues of your own making.
I put the clips on a sperate drive and it did no good. If I have a video clip with no effects and apply a simple title that portion of the video will look funky. My previews are set at high quality. I am sure we will all agree that a mere 2.13 Core 2 Dual should play the title OK. The video should look clean as glass but it does not. I am willing to bet it is the Master Collection. The Premire Pro CS3 demo is not available for download so I will contact Adobe to night for a trial version CD. That will let me know for sure.
I doubt you can install a trail version of CS3 over a purchased version without regrets. Or did you mean to use a different PC?
sounds to me that you guys are wasting your time with this one. he doesn't want you to ask him any questions, but all he wants to hear is confirmation that cs3 is the problem. never mind that he only has one drive, etc.
Phil why be a full time jerk? I stated I tried it with two drives already. I just want some feedback concerning your experience with PP CS3. We are not talking droped frames. Something is wrong with the RT previews. Does your system drop frames when the RT has reached it's limit or does it look a funky? Please post the info I am asking for because that would be helpful.
See # 10. Answered already. Don't be a jerk.
