Mountain Lion (Mac OSX v10.8) is recommended for Premiere Pro

Mountain Lion (Mac OS v10.8) upgrade improves performance and stability with Premiere Pro.

Be sure to check for drivers for third-party I/O hardware and such, since such drivers often lag the OS release.

Thanks for this.  Nervous about trying it out. Nearly wrapping up a big project so can't afford for there to be a problem now.  LIkely waiting a week or so...

That is a VERY good idea!

As Todd said, it is not JUST the Apple update... you need to be sure that any hardware drivers you need are also updated

Example (from the Windows side, where I am) CS6 required many people to upgrade their nVidia graphics driver

I upgraded to Mountain Lion Today, everything seems to be working okay, but,  I had already installed 6.01 update for Premiere Pro, but, after Mountain Lion upgrade, Adobe Updater saying that Premiere needs to be updated to 6.01???, I checked About Premiere it shows it is 6.01 --- anyone else find this? 

Will try restarting later and see if it's an indexing issue, but wierd.  Kinda hestitant to install update, did that with Lion and kernel crash was the word for the day.

Had the same experience.  AMA asked to install 6.0.1 again.

In other news, I don't find a single improvement to stabilty or performance.  There is now a new bug where video will stop playing and audio continues.  This is related to the new 5.x CUDA drivers, as this didn't occur with the previous drivers.

This release continues to dissapoint.  Its my sincere beleif that I am better off in 5.5.2, and Adobe should go out of its way to allow for reverse compatibility - even going so far as to create a translator between the two.  I honestly wouldn't care about losing Warp Stablizer or any of the other so called "Feature" improvements.  I am a professional feature film editor that took a chance with CS6 for this film, and it has been an absolutely terrible experience.

You guys should try a fresh Adobe install over the new OS update.

I'll go one step further and say: never, ever, EVER upgrade between major releases of the Mac OS.  While their upgrade solution is far better than any existing OS, it can and will cause small annoyances to pop up over time.

Format your drive and re-install from scratch.  Always.  Then re-install all of your applications.

I tend to agree with that. As part of my job I need to use the app on OS 10.8 right away, and I keep extra OS partitions set up just for that. But the USER part of me sticks with 10.7.4 until I'm ready to re-install everything from scratch... which is simetimes a year or more after the new OS comes out.

But that is NOT an official Adobe statement, that's just me... because I never trust full-OS releases when they first come out.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is the best practices for doing a clean install?  I downloaded ML from the app store, but haven't done anything with it yet.  Thanks for some guidance.

Within the .app you downloaded is a file called InstallESD.dmg or something like that.  You need to get a 4G thumb drive and 'burn' that .dmg to it using Disk Utility.  Then reboot your Mac while holding the Option key so that a boot menu pops up.  Choose the thumb drive.  When given the opportunity to run Disk Utility from the installer, do so, and format your internal HDD.  Then go back to the installer and have at it.

Lots of guides online on how to do this.  Just GOOG it, you'll find it easily.

OK - just got my free upgrade codes from Apple, have downloaded, created an install disc and am ready to go (late 2011 17" MBP with 6770M).

Anyone had any problems with Premiere Pro on ML yet that were not already present on Lion?

Anyone want to testify to Premiere Pro running better on ML than Lion?

Hi There,

So far, the ML updgrade did seem to solve the incessant kernel crashes and I've been able to have project going through OpenCL, I actually got through a full edit on a little short without a crash (keeps fingers crossed) but the render out still really slow.  Before ML came out, everything was so unreliable, I couldn't really count on it for anything important.  For Adobe, being able to export 422HQ out, allocating enough ram and having a fast system, even with 422HQ sources takes a tremendous amount of time for simple things (title and scaling a few video clips to a box), I hope you'll have some solutions in that arena coming soon.

So far, Premiere Pro has been solid on ML - but alas the MacPro has "reset" 4 times during Lightroom exports - something I've never seen before.

Im sure a lot of my experience in bootsed performance is the fact I went from a 2008 Mac Pro to a top of the line HP Z820. Feels like I went from VW to Ferrari  😉

Unfortunately that is not the case if your PC's are up to date with the latest hardware. Keep sending those emails to Apple requesting a Mac Pro Refresh. Maybe at some point their focus will change back to Professional clients.

Oh, there are..... but that doesn't mean 'Windows 7' is an upgrade as such    it has just as many problems as ML, just 'different' ones (not al Adobe related).

For what it's worth, that's not due to the new CUDA 5.x drivers as far as I can tell.  My existing CS6 install does the same thing with the pre-5.x drivers.

I'm glad to hear that CS6 is up for performance and stability improvements.

Upgrading on an editing system (especially one that already works) is a risky move. I used FCP 7 on 10.6.7 for a LONG time, never went to 10.6.8.

I put ML on my personal laptop, but will wait a month or more before putting it on our primary editing machines.

Hi everyone, new to the forum.  I'm on a mid-2010 Macbook Pro i5 8GB RAM using the Creative Cloud, mainly Premiere Pro CS6.  So, last week installed Mountain Lion (probably a mistake) after I read that there were no issues with Premiere.  Well, since then whenever I launch CS6 the purple Premiere art pops up and I get a spinning beach ball every single time and the app doesn't respond.  Worked perfectly before ML install.  I have called Adobe 3 times...no help.  I have done clean installs, cleared preferences, tried on new admin users.  No luck.  I'm not super tech and sure I did something wrong, but if anyone has any words of wisdom, I would love that.  Thank you all.  Let me know if you need nore info on the issue.
