MisconceptionsEdit

  • Premiere Pro does not import the contents of clips into the Premiere Pro project, it just creates references to them.
  • Premiere Pro does not change the source clips in any way. This is called "non-destructive editing".
  • Markers added to a clip on the timeline do not magically appear in all clips from the same source in other timelines. If you want the same clip markers to appear on the same clip in multiple timelines then you need to create the clip markers in the Source View, effectively assigning the markers to the clip in the Project Window/Panel, before putting the clip on the timeline.

Online HelpEdit

  • The following originally appeared in the Adobe Forums:

Help Menu shuts down Premiere Pro on XP

Q. When attempting to access the help menu drop down you get a dialog box that says a serious error has occured and it shuts down Premiere. Reinstalling Premiere gives the same error.

A. This often happens when there is a problem with the driver for the graphics card.

Be sure you are using the latest driver and be sure to keep XP up to date with WindowsUpdate.com (Eddie Lotter Jan 25, 2004)

Premiere Help works fine on my nVidia GeForce 2 MX 400.

When Help is launched from within Premiere, Premiere makes a call to the Windows Shell to open the Internet Explorer or maybe even your default browser. Try making sure your default browser is Internet Explorer; beyond that you may have some other OS issue (Eddie Lotter - Feb 6, 2004)

I had a registry problem. For some reason on the machines that were crashing when help was launched the following help keys were not even granted read access:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Premiere\7.0\Help] "AdobeMediaEncoder"="C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Premiere Pro\\Help\\1_0_0_0.html" "Contents"="C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Premiere Pro\\Help\\1_0_0_0.html" "ExportToDVD"="C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Premiere Pro\\Help\\1_13_2_0.html" "HowToUse"="C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Premiere Pro\\Help\\0_0_0_0.html" "Keyboard"="C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Premiere Pro\\Help\\1_4_15_0.html" "Search"="C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Premiere Pro\\Help\\search.html" "Support"="http://www.adobe.com/support/products/premiere.html"

So on the folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Premiere\7.0\Help which initially looked like it was empty, I added the group "Everyone" and gave them "Read" access...the above values appeared in the Help folder and all Help functions now works on all machines...

it looks like although these keys were written to the registry during the install permissions were not set properly on 2/4 machines...not sure why it works on some machines and not others...

hope that this is of help to some of you others who were having the same problem. (pliant - Feb 6, 2004)

I installed the software on a clean WindowsXP image with admin rights...no other software was installed after installing Premiere...the help menu crashed Premiere the very first time i tried it..it never worked until i gave access to the help folder in the registry...however i did try installing it on 4 machines, 2 desktops and 2 laptops...on the laptops it worked with no problems...on the desktops both had the help menu problem.

Basically, just make sure users have Read access to the following reg key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Premiere\7.0\Help

For some reason on the machines that were crashing when help was launched the following help keys were not even granted READ access:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Premiere\7.0\Help] "AdobeMediaEncoder"="C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Premiere Pro\\Help\\1_0_0_0.html" "Contents"="C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Premiere Pro\\Help\\1_0_0_0.html" "ExportToDVD"="C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Premiere Pro\\Help\\1_13_2_0.html" "HowToUse"="C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Premiere Pro\\Help\\0_0_0_0.html" "Keyboard"="C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Premiere Pro\\Help\\1_4_15_0.html" "Search"="C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Premiere Pro\\Help\\search.html" "Support"="http://www.adobe.com/support/products/premiere.html"

That did it! I tried adding permissions for users, but that didn't work. I then added full control for everyone on all directories and subs and that did the trick. I'm not sure of the risk however. I think it was probably locked down by an XP security patch as I recall somthing about a web based help plug-in and a security patch.

When I have time, I'll probably go back a cut back permissions to what necessary.

Thanks pilant. I saw your post earlier and was going to paste it down hear for others, but I got side tracked. I'm still trying to find my way through the forum. I was experiencing trouble with the search function yesterday, but I've had no problems today. (Lance Wieland - Feb 12, 2004)

What does it mean : "add a group Everyone" ?

- Click on the Help folder - Click on Edit > Permissions... - Click the Add... button - type in: Everyone - click Ok - click Read > Allow checkbox - click Ok

That should do it. (pliant - Mar 1, 2004)

I had the same problem, but fixed it with this link.http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/319210.html Just substitute "Adobe Premiere Pro_2.0_en-us.zip" and follow the directions.

Operating SystemEdit

  • Premiere Pro does not work on Microsoft Windows Operating Systems released prior to Windows XP. The reason is because Premiere Pro takes advantage of new services not available in previous OS versions.

PerformanceEdit

  • Be sure to go to Control Panel > System > Advanced > Performance > Settings and select “Adjust for best performance”.
Remove all items from the Startup group.
Do not use Wallpaper, Screen Savers.
Do not use Energy Management.
Turn off your Anti-Virus protection (remove you internet cable if it is always on, when you do this)
On your Task Bar (lower right), shut down all processes (printer contol, etc).
1. Keep your disk defragmented (disregard Microsoft's "You do not need to defragment this disk" and look at the report). If there are any number of files, defragment it anyway.
2. Add a second drive. As you approach over 50% utiization on any drive you will start to see a slowdown.
3. Run my PPBM+ benchmark and compare your results to the ones posted.
4. With only 512MB of RAM do not try to do multitasking, keep it just to editing.
5. As Mitchell (sort of) says keep the number of processes running (Cntrl-Alt-Del to get to Task Manager and look at processes) to a minimum. I typically have about 25 before I load Premiere.
Just got off the phone with Adobe Tech Support. Here's the hot smoky dope:

The playback delay issues are associated with the Cineform projects, third party editing software that Adobe has no control over.
These issues do not occur in the Adobe HDV projects even when Cineform .AVIs are imported. Even without rendering the CF .AVIs play without a glitch in the Adobe HDV project.
A quick work-around that seems to work fine: Create a new project using the Adobe HDV settings then import your old PPro1.5 Cineform project into it. Works great even with the red render line above it.
