Have you also lost your HD Project Presets, and all HD Export settings?
If so, you have probably been bitten by the revert to trial Bug.
If so, follow these steps:
Deactivate, if possible
Download and run Adobe Cleaner Tool CS5 several time, rebooting between each
Update to the latest, before launch
Launch and test
Revert to trial bug, strikes again!
- Go to Help > Deactivate; you can leave your serial number.
- Uninstall the program (or suite, if you have it); you can leave your preferences.
- Run the Adobe Creative Suite Cleaner Tool.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 at least once more, just to be safe.
- Update immediately.
It's a total pain, and it's been plaguing Premiere Pro for a couple of versions now. No one seems to know why, or how to put an end to it. It'll be interesting to see if this happens if we get an update to CS5.5...
(Sorry for the bad news.)
thank you guys! What a pain, but I guess I have no choice!
