I am still in post on three movies. Every time I deliver the robot in a highrise movie it gets kicked back for QC issues. So really do not listen to me when I talk about doing sound on a motion picture. I clearly have no idea what I'm doing.
|Don't expect to see this forever.|
I haven't gotten one thing done this week I'd planned to actually do. This seems to happen to me every single week. We need to be shooting next month or I will cry. So just as soon as I can get movies rendered and out the door with all the post-production done, I'll be happy.
It's good to see the world is finally catching up to me. I've been editing motion pictures with premiere since 1999. (no joke--that was my first feature)
I cut my second feature, Apostasy, on Premiere 3. Yeah, I know. I had a 9 (count 'em) 9 gigabyte SCSI drive.
Then we did Angry Planet on Premiere and the experience was miserable. That was using version 5? Maybe? The projects were so big and data-heavy I couldn't do more than three edits before the whole thing would crash and I'd have to re-start.
And I found out, years later, that whole sections of the movie rendered with repeating frames. So I had to go BACK and re-render. Using the old computer. That sucked.
I hope it works better now.
I assume you mean CS3. Cuz my first feature in 1999 was on Premiere 5.1(way back before CS) and I was using IDE 540RPM hard drives. And yeah, CS3 sucked hard. I'm currently using 5.5 because it works for me, and I don't want to connect my computer to the internet for any reason at all since then I need a firewall and an antivirus program, both of which help slow a computer down)
But someday I imagine I'll have to do the stupid cloud. I'll get a whole new computer system before I do that though.
No you're right. That first version of Premiere I used was probably 5.1. Which was a working version of Premiere. Although one needed a special hardware/software plugin situation just to get the audio to be in sync.
I wish Premiere were as solid as After Effects. It's a hostile program, but very un-buggy.
Yeah, Apostasy was on 5.1 and Angry Planet was on CS2. I think that's right.
Weird, I never had audio issues with 5.1. I think my next feature was on 6.0(FOC), then 6.something, then I did one on CS3 that for some reason didn't have a problem(it was P2 card stuff, which Premiere had a specific plugin, so maybe that helped), and then CS5.
To go from 5.1 to CS2...was there like a 6 year gap between those features?
I shot Pandora Machine in 2001/2002 and that movie was edited in FCP (version 3?) This was before Apple decided to screw their professional video base and were actively trying to make their program better than Premiere.
