You are not alone in your complaints about Quicktime. It makes you wonder why people still use it at all.
I never do.
You don't have much choice on a Mac. Yet another reason to avoid Macs.
All other Adobe Mac programs work like a charm.
And you have Avid and Final Cut Pro on a Mac. What more do you need?
Both are industry standards. Premiere Pro isn't. Maybe in the future.
>And you have Avid and Final Cut Pro on a Mac. What more do you need?
If one has the suite, then Dynamic Link to those "other Adobe Mac programs" that "work like a charm" is a compelling reason to try to get Premiere working with those QT files.
The solution may be for Apple to fix QT, because version 7.5.5 is causing all kinds of trouble on the PC side, and it may be affecting Pr on the Mac side. Of course, if 7.5.5 works OK with FCS and other Apple apps, they won't be very motivated to fix bugs that adversely affect their competition. ;)
Otherwise, switching to a tool that works on the Mac is probably a wise, efficient decision.
7.5.5 works perfect in CS3 and it's Apple's fault it doesn't work right in CS4?
By the time CS4 is working as smoothly as CS3 is now, the next buggy CS5 will come out and it might actually be native 64. So six months later CS5 will work right. So two years from now Adobe Premiere 64 will be running great.
It bugs me the Sony Vegas 8 updates and gives you 64 support. It was never a planned feature.
Adobe comes out with a band-aid 4.0.1 patch that enables a few features it should have shipped and they pat themselves on the back.
I'm fed up with Premiere CS4 and I'm only gonna use it new P2 projects that are over 30 thirty seconds because of the media browser. I did two 30 second local commercials in After Effects last week. Took 30 minutes till render with the client sitting beside me.
AE is plays P2 HD, still sequences, and anything SD real time with no effects so I just edit there...render there,
Now I edit in Premiere CS3 mainly then use the Adobe Media Encoder to render because it's fast.
Unless thing change I'll be working instead of posting here more often so you guys can be rid of me (for the most part. I will pop up here and there).
Hurry up with that next update Adobe.
>7.5.5 works perfect in CS3 and it's Apple's fault it doesn't work right in CS4?
No. It's Apple's fault that 7.5.5 has caused QT problems in several applications on the PC side. CS4 is just one of them. Sorenson Squeeze is another. CloneDVDMobile is another. And that's only the ones on my systems. The problems that show up in these apps all point to QuickTime.
It's possible something else is at work, however the Occam's Razor principle applies here.
>you have Avid and Final Cut Pro on a Mac. What more do you need?
A PC, of course.
The real world also says we need to work cross platform no matter whatever the difficulties. Closing the mind to problems and possibilities is very limiting.
Welcome to the media world.
