A post for all of you old timers from the Adobe Premiere days

I was at a Target store the other day, and I saw my very first box of Yodels. Boy oh boy did it bring back some memories.

 

Do you remember the video contest we had here in the Video Lounge back in 2004? I believe that the rules were a maximum duration of one minute and a maximum file size of 10MB. Yes, you young folks, that is not a typo. It had to be 10MB or less.

 

Our videos were posted at about the size of a postage stamp. 320X240 was the generally accepted dimensions. I still have copies of all of them that I downloaded before the WrigleyVideo site went down.

 

Remember that someone accidentally spelled Yodels wrong as "Yoodels" and many of the contest entries took that as their topic. Especially Chris Rulon.

 

Well, here is a reminder, because you see, Yodels are still the perfect editing food. There is enough sugar in these things to keep you awake through the night. 🙂

Hey! Remember when it took all night to render a one minute video? 

 

I don't hang out here anymore because I switched over to shooting stills about 99.9% of the time, but I still use Premiere Pro once in a blue moon, when I do shoot video.

 

Mostly it is all about Photoshop and Lightroom for me nowadays since I became the photographer for the Oakland Zoo in Northern California and they use my photos for darn near everything.

 

If any of you oldtimers are still around, let me know. It would be nice to hear from you.

 

I tried telling you all about my latest adventure in training but I was accused of posting SPAM. So, in case that was the problem, I am trying this post again.

For the moderators, I don't sell snack food. If you can, take a look at the messages from around 2002 and you will understand the whole "Yoodles" joke.

I bought a ready made Alienware computer in 2002 that came bundled with Premiere 6 - the OLD version 6, not a CS version - and a DV500 card to convert 8mm/vhs tapes to AVI for editing home movies

 

I remember discussions of yoodles (and a lot of other editing snacks) but I visited that old forum to help me learn how to use P6 (and later answer questions) so I never did any contest video

I remember your name from those days John. You didn't take part in either of the contests we had in the lounges. That's a shame, they were fun.

I too used Premiere 6 with a DV500 card. I still order my new computers with firewire connections just in case I need to pull something off of an old Mini-DV or HDV tape. I have a device I can plug in to the firewire that has analog composite jacks, and I still have a VCR up in the attic. You just never know.

I now use a No longer sold (?) Grass Valley ADVC 110 external digital converter since the DV500 I had stopped working

 

Looking back at some old notes - My Computers
P3 Alienware Roswell Jan 2002 with Premiere 6 and DV500 capture card
P4 built July 2004 - think I bought CS2 or CS3 and moved DV500
Intel i7 930 built June 2010 - CS5 Master Collection via WSU
Intel i7 4930k built July 2014 - upgrade PPro to CS6

Steven,

 

Nice to hear from you again! Craig Walker, aka "shooternz", posted a few months back a few times on the Premiere forum. He's retired and doing a lot of stills now also.

Hey Steven! What's up? Thanks for checking in. Glad you have such a sweet gig. I am in the Bay Area in SF. Come on by to Adobe SF some day.

 

Cheers,

Kevin
