    Brand New everything but just doesn't work as it should



              Just bought a £2000 HP Elitebook 2.8Ghz with 3gb ram, XP, and a lot a bells and whistles. Installed CS4 production Premium and then the updates for Premiere, Encore, Photoshop and Soundbooth.


      Started a new project, connected my Panasonic HVX200 to import DVCPROHD 1080i50 footage - simple you would think.


      Wont do it, locks up everytime.


      Now I started using Premiere on version 5.1 many years ago but stopped using it on version 6 after getting sick of its crashing and instability.

      I went over to FCP and it was a breath of fresh air to say the least.


      When Premiere Pro first came out, I tested it on a brand new laptop, crashed within the first minute and that was the end of that !


      After 5 years on virtually flawless FCP use I thought I'd try out Premiere again and guess what, nothings changed, it just doesn't work as it should.


      How anyone on these forums makes any money from it and keeps their sanity is beyond me.
