    They are GONE

    Premiere Pro ONLY uses single track editing.( more "professional")

    I am still using P6.0 and use single track just to get "trained"

    I just upgrade from Premiere 6.5 to Premiere Pro.

    Where are the Video 1A and Video 1B.

    Thanks

    I've never got why single track editing is considered more professional.
    After all, two-track editing emulates the A/B roll editing of film.

  4. A/B editing is certainly more intuitive, and I think easier to
    apply subtle transition changes to, but I guess those into
    "max-speed-editing" prefer lotsa simplifications and shortcuts
    in the editor. Not for me, though...

    And, in Premiere, you can set it for one-track editing if that's what you
    like. Personally, I learned in film, so I like working with two tracks, LIKE
    FILM!

    Not only that, but it occurs to me that having two tracks would be very
    useful for cutting a negative for an A/B print.

  7. I know Adobe actually does beta-test their software, but sometimes
    I've been caught shouting at my computer, "DOESN'T ANYONE
    ACTUALLY ***TRY*** THIS [STUFF] BEFORE IT'S SOLD?!?!?!" ;-)
    I learned on Permiere 4.2, I continue to use Premiere (P-5.1 [after the P-5
    disaster...] and P-6), but I still curse its "opacity" ('til I find work-arounds)
    and bugs (even after I find work-arounds...), and continue to like it for what
    I do (sorta, even when putting up with silly changes in the newer versions...;-),
    but I may stop with P-6... Or, I may put up with P-7's single-track editing and
    lack of menu controls to continue with software that does still do some things
    quite well... It would be nice, though, if Adobe always retained the best of the
    earlier software when introducing "updates", and paid more attention to
    how most people like to use their software, and also to minimizing bugs (after
    a while, patience does run thin...).

    Of course, if a bunch of people didn't buy Premiere Pro (Premiere 7?) and
    actually told Adobe that they wanted A/B editing, maybe Adobe would do
    something about it.

    There's a lot to be said for market pressure.

    Unfortunately, I think a lot of people will just get it anyways and deal
    with it, even though they don't like it - for whatever reason. That won't
    give Adobe much incentive to bring back the 2-track system.

    I read that because of this change, all tracks can have special effects

  10. All versions provide this - but P-7 permits transitions anywhere
    (but it was no big deal to drop a bit of a clip into V1A/B to add
    a transition in earlier versions...).
