    I have a nicely spec'd Athlon64 system , and have worked with AVI's
    previously with no problems.
    I'm now trying to edit/trim some mpg files of TV clips captured through
    MMC with my AIW 9800pro.
    Seems as soon as I import the mpg, premiere pro fails to respond, the
    files arent big or anything and I'm kinda stumped as to whats causing the
    non responsiveness.

    The machine is setup correctly for editing.

    Comments? questions? more info?

    I was under the impression Premiere didn't support MPG editing. (non-GoP

  3. Yes, question. What is Premiere Pro 7? I have heard of Premiere Pro 1 and
    Premiere Pro 1.5. Where did the 7come from? The natural progression from
    Premiere 6.5 would have been Premiere 7, but Premiere Pro is a whole new
    name/program. I searched the Adobe website and cannot find any reference to
    Premiere Pro 7. Where can I get this magical version of Premiere Pro from
    the future? How many new features have they added since Premiere Pro 1.5?

    Premiere Pro 1.0 is Premiere 7.0.
    Premiere Pro 1.5 is Premiere 7.5.

    The shift to new naming (the new "CS" series) was strategic marketing for
    what was a ground-up software re-write... as I understand it at least.

  5. Premiere Pro 1.0 is Premiere Pro 1.0 and is not Premiere Pro 7 or Premiere
    7. Adobe named the program Pro 1.0 and 1.5.... they never called it Premiere
    Pro 7 or Premiere 7. Just because a version followed 6.5 does not make it 7.
    If Adobe meant it to be called, or even referred to as 7 or 7.5 they would
    have named it accordingly. If there were a program called Premiere Pro 6.5,
    then yes there would be a Premiere Pro 7. But the Pro version is the first
    Pro version....

    There is no version 7 because the program was once both Mac and Windows. Pro
    marks the first Adobe video editing program to be Windows only, therefore
    the new name and version numbering. Sorry, but you cannot just make up
    version numbers, well you can but no matter what you argue you are
    completely wrong.

    When I do a "get info" on the Premiere Pro 1.0 application, the file version
    number is ""
    Perhaps someone would do the same for Pro 1.5 and get back to us...

    Oh, that's interesting, i sort of remember 1.0 giving the 7.p under the info
    But I just check my version 1.5, and that's been corrected to say version

    No need to quibble about what it's called, i always find it funny how the
    meaning of the original post always gets side-tracked by a mistake they made
    in trying to express themselves rather than looking beyond mistakes and
    kis-spelling and anwering the question.

    Premiere Pro doesn't handle mpeg video, not without a plug-in, and there is
    a great one available but can't remember
    the name, maybe someone else can? I think it's made by main concept but not

  8. Don't know about 1.0 but 1.5 is fixed up to say

    Soooo, flip a coin.
