    So, I'm waiting to buy all of my production software until I get myself a desktop, and i'm gonna do it all in one fell swoop. My plan originally was: Octo-Core mac pro, Photo Shop CS3 and Final Cut Studio.

    Now, with Adobe's Master Collection, I'm thinking I might go that route, if Premier is worth a poop.

    Any Thoughts?

    I think its an interesting move for Adobe. since they dropped Mac support a while ago, its been Final cut or nuthin'! Premier better knock the socks off people, or no one is even going to bother with it

    I despised premiere so much in my old job that I actually started to EDIT with after effects.

    Premiere is ok, but FCP is awesome. The next version should be even better. They're hoping if they bundle it, people will use it, but I'm guessing they'll stick with FCP. I know I will.

    Sticking With Final Cut Studio 6

    Hope the new CS3 AfterEffects will roundtrip well with FCP. I'm buying the entire Master Collection so I'll have the next Premiere for Mac. But I doubt I'll use it much unless AfterEffects needs it to work best. But I doubt they would make that a problem.

    BTW. Somebody has hacked this board and everyone has different names now. April Fools!

    My shopping list is: OctoCore Mac Pro, 3 Intensity PCIe Cards, CS3 Master Collection, Final Cut Studio 6, and other stuff. :)

    Very nice, I think that we will be upgrading our edit suite i the next 6 months so an 8 core is on the cards for us too. Just can't wait to have AE CS3 on our mac pro to really wring as much performance out of the machine as possible.

    I gotta stick with FCS cause it is what I got. I don't want to fork over the cash for Premiere unless I stumble across some insane upgrade deal.

    I think you will have more than enough time to figure out your needs being that both the Production Suite & Master Collection aren't slated to ship until sometime in June.

    Well, with the way things are going, it looks like we won't have a new Mac Pro until then either.

    I just hope that they give a free trial download of Premiere so I can try it out on a Mac Pro before dropping a few grand on a piece of software I might not even like!

    Although, I guess the academic prices won't differ to much

    Adobe Master Collection, $1,000

    Adobe CS3 Design Premium, $600 + Final Cut Studio, $700 = $1300.

    so for an extra 3 bills, I can get what is considered a much better program

    I hear you about the demo - I think it will be a while off though.

    Adobe does have an upgrade path particularly for those interested in the Master Collection.

    I'd vote for Premier Elements for Mac

    I would like to see Premier Elements for the Mac; something to compete with iMovie but with better/fuller video format support and removing the limitation of 720x480 as the minimum resolution.

    I've changed from Premiere (Windows) to FCS November last year. I don't think I'll change back soon. With FCS I can make anything I want and Mac is the best platform I've ever used.
    And one big thing for me: I haven't found any information about Panasonic P2 support in Premiere CS3.
