I wonder if this is a GUI issue. What is the version/date of your video card driver? That would be the first thing that I would rule out.
Thanks for your reply.
I am using a ATI FireGL V7700 video card and updated the driver to the latest version, 8.743.3.2. This had no effect on my problem.
Is it possible that my configuration is not compatable since Adobe seems to like Intel and NVidia?
My previous version of Premiere Pro (2.0) worked just fine with my previous AMD and ATI configuration.
Does anyone have any other suggestions?
I just stumbled upon an interesting development. The problem of not being able to select the timeline seems to only happen if the media browser is selected. Selecting the info, effects, or other tab seems to clear the problem.
Thanks for any suggestions.
Interesting. Still sounds like a GUI/video issue, but obviously not related to the video driver. It's as though the full display of the Media Browser takes more power, than the card is able to deliver. I do not know the console on ATI cards, so can only say to look at the settings there, and make sure that items, like 3D performance are set properly - that one should be Let Program Decide. Maybe an ATI user can give you some specific tips, and settings to investigate.
