Well I've finally had it with Adobe CS3. I have the Production Premium Suite, and frankly After Effects and Photoshop work well. But Premiere and Encore (for DVD) are a nightmare. I was working with someone tonight on a project, and Premiere crashed no fewer than 20 times in a 4 hour span. When it didn't crash, the timeline would get scrambled with ghosted artifacts to the point where I couldn't tell if things were aligned anymore (ie: the OSx dock would become imprinted at the bottom of the program window and I would have to restart). Also, the timeline would refuse to render certain clips, and I would have to move them and then move them back to "activate them". I know some of you probably have no idea what I'm talking about, and that's because good editing software isn't supposed to have these problems. But yet Premier CS3 does. And then, when I try to burn my final DVD with Encore, I get more software crashes, and occasionally cruddy video output when the settings are all on high. (I'm importing lossless video files too, so it's not my compression). Also, Encore has been putting out more and more coasters lately, but my DVD burner works fine with other software. I would really appreciate advice on what to do at this point. Please don't tell me I should have gotten FCP, because I fully intended to, but also wanted Photoshop, so CS3 was the better deal because of the bundle. There will be no further updates released to CS3, because CS4 is here. However, I don't see why I should need to buy CS4 to fix CS3. Upgrades should be for features, not to correct inherent software flaws! Does anyone think I can get adobe to do something if I give them hell on the phone? All this software wasn't cheap and I feel cheated.
