You get tired after a few months. It just gets worse as time goes on so most of us develop a live and let live attitude.

Truthfully, what happens is that you stop answering the questions for a while, then, one day, you realize nobody has answered, so you get roped back into answering. You do this until you get good and tired again, and the cycle continues.

Reading the manual is old fashioned, don't you know? So I just keep pointing them to the Eagle and to the Creative Cow tutorials. I continue to say nice things about Lynda.com - would you believe that I still get paid a little every month for my Premiere Pro 1.5 tutorials from 2004? Lynda is really a delightful, intelligent, competant woman. I had lunch with her one day and it was quite memorable.

I can understand why they thyink that an intermediate is needed, but we just have to keep at it. We need to get the point across as best we can by telling them to try it out for themselves.

As for non-editable media, I don't believe that there really is such a thing. Not really. There are always going to be people who try to edit highly compressed video, but that is their problem. They will have to get used to the fact that Premiere Pro is not designed to stitch together media without a loss in quality. We are going to see more and more of this as more and more people figure out that they can accomplish a lot with a free trial, and that $50 per month is a bargain if they use enough of the programs. But almost all media can be edited. It is just the quality that is an issue. I was surprised to find that FLV files are not supported anymore. Seems like a mistake to me.

I have never run more than a 20K run. And the only marathon I have ever watched was the women at the 1984 Olympics.

A guy on another forum who persists in advising users of Window editing programs to convert source files to Prores.

He really bugs me when he advising Edius users to convert to Prores when Edius probably has the best transcoding software there is should you have a PC that cannot handle native material.

A certain user on this forum who has many posts and yet persists in degrading others who give advice that is either in conflict with his (clue there as to gender) or an alternative.

Idiots who post.....................will someone make me a promo?

Those who post a question when someone else has posted the same query a few posts earlier

Finally.............that Adobe does not acknowledge that many, many users do not want a subscription system, especially when it is extorting more money out of us than upgrades did.

Reading posts on the Adobe forums about bugs, here, bugs there.............................there product development really sucks at times

Rant over

On the plus side, its 11:15 here in the UK, and I am pondering why am I sat here talking to you guys when I could be outside under the blue cloudless skies (a rarity at this time of year)?  Where is my gardening kit?  Bye

  1. Folk who treat the answers to simple questions (What platform are you on? What are the specs. of your Source Footage? What is your Project/Sequence Preset? What are the specs. of your Export? etc.) as "state secrets," and keep complaining that NOTHING works.
  2. Folk who will get a dozen replies to a question/problem, never revisit that thread again, but will then post the same question to the same forum again, and again.
  3. Folk who shoot 4K, then output to DVD-Video, and complain that the resultant disc is not as crisp as their original 4K footage, and blame their copy of Premiere for that.
  4. Folk who would watch a televised marathon, in real-time...
  5. Folk who see clear, sunny days in the UK, this time of the year... Last month, we arrived just as a "named storm" swept through the Isles!

If I come back here will that be some weird signal that Jim Simon will then post 5 pages of " the world according to Jim " ?  Or is he now ( thank Gawd ) one of the actors on that new reality TV show " Survivors On Desert Island " and won't be back until 22 episodes are in the can ?

The suggestion that a fake poster credit to sell a fake movie won't be taken as a suggestion somebody actually BECOMES a director.

( burp, scuse me , its BEER THIRTY YIPEE ! )

I take umbrage ( is that the word I want ? ) with the 4k debacle. I shot red test stuff on card limited to 2k on card and had to downscale using redcine X to mov h264 using the mouse... just to get it INTO the mouse... and the quality suffered a lot ( and thank gawd Jim asked if I would ever do color correction on that sample I shared , cause it really helped me to get beat up in a forum where nobody has cc monitors anyway , least of all me who is color blind anyway ).

My opinion is that if someone wants to take 4k footage, put it in a paper bag and set it on fire, and leave it at some creepy neighbors front door , ring their bell and run away , on Halloween.. more power to them !

At two recent "gun events" at Blackberry Farm, about 40% of the attendees were female. What I do not know is how many of those attened with a spouse, or male companion, and how many attended as solo females, or with female companions.

Now, the wine events run about 50-50 female-male, while the culinary events run about 60-40 (opposite of the gun events), female - male. Still, that attendance ratio for the gun events was a bit of a surprise to me.

As some of the gun events were trap, skeet or sporting clays, there was little "gutting and eating" on the agenda.

Rod,

My complaint was not with shooting at a higher-rez, and then down-rezzing that material to be authored to a limited medium, such as DVD-Video, but with the posters trying to compare the original footage, in its high-rez glory vs the material on that DVD-Video.

I think that I should possibly have worded my "peeve" a bit better.

I just re-heated the onion soup which smells wonderful ( was in fridge overnight ). Got gruyere cheese and fresh mozz today ( food store got new batch of gruyere ).

Soooo, I think this food stuff is getting to my male hormones or something.. when chics start hunting and gutting and I assume some of them might know how to actually COOK the stuff ...instead of just coming back to " camp " and dumping dead meat at the feet of their male companions ?

geez, what a freaking nightmare that article implies for the " creative woman " .  And her NAILS WERE PERFECT !

Rod,

Another of my "pet peeves," is people, who talk about good food, when I have not eaten...

Good luck with that onion soup. I think that we have having some form of dead chicken tonight.

Steven,

I completely agree. I have been served Balut, and did not enjoy it. Once, in Southeast Asia, I was offered live chicks, thrown into hot oil, then served in a newspaper. Not my thing. No, dead chicken is more like it, at least for me. Tonight will be Red Bird Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, smoked in an Emeril Lagasse Hickory Smoking Bag, served with a lovely Romanée-Conti red Burg.

I have simpler tastes. I am addicted to Costco chicken. $4.99 gets me two servings of a delicious bird. Add some vegetables and I have stuck to my diet. No fuss, no muss. And Costco is on the way home from work.

mmmm... chicken sounds good. Instead of costco I use local food store sometimes for chick to go...is whole chick rotisserrie (sp? ). Only complaint is they are a little on fhe fatty side ( I've wondered if something is injected into the meat to make it more juicey ?? )  Cause the meat isnt fatty, it's the juice that is kinda fatty.  But its good anyway.

$6.50 approx for it...good for 2 meals.

I want what Bill's having.. the smoked thing...

File is named FishSoup because the 1st recipe I put in, before adding others, was for Bouillabaisse... which I think I will do sometime early next year, or maybe for a New Year's Eve dinner party with 2-3 kinds of white wine (just turned around and talked to wife, at the computer on the other side of our office... Fish Soup Dec 31... early enough that everyone can drive home before there are many drunks on the road)
