Not so good. Don’t like any mandatory app on my Mac, not only this one, the same to other Adobe apps.

Otherwise, it's time to switch back to Final Cut Pro.

What a list of fixed bugs!!! I didn't know there were so much and serious bugs on Premiere! I don't know what made Adobe and their fan users running against FCP trying to persuade video editors to change from FCP to Premiere!!! Really!! I'll stay wtih my two FCP versions and sometimes Avid MC.

After using FCP Studio Pro for many years decided to make the change to ADOBE PREMIER PRO. All I can say that if you RTFM and spend a bit of time learning to use the interface - THEN - it beats FCP hands down !! Excellent software and will not go back to FCP. I think that the negative reviews are from people who have only given the software a cursory glance and have not actually used it to complete a project from end to end. I still edit using ProRes - in APP - and use Compressor to deinterlace the master pro-res files. Finally CUDA speeds up rendering and saves tons of time. So all in all a great combination. Sayonara FCP - was great while it lasted ! [ MAC PRO 3,1 - 16GIG RAM, SSD Boot drive, Snowleopard, Nvidia Quadro 4000. ] Final word - read the damned manual and use ADOBE TV to learn.

It turned out in the crash report that Premiere Pro CS% 5.0.2 and After Effects CS5 10.0.1 crash on startup is attributed to conflict with Joesoft Hear audio enhancer.

com.joesoft.hal which resided in Hear.plugin, located in /Library/Audio/Plug_ins/HAL is the culprit.

To run Premiere Pro and After Effects with Hear installed, the options are:

1. Uninstall Hear completely by using Uninstall Menu in Hear application menu


2. start Hear, disable it, then go to /Library/Audio/Plug_ins/HAL and move Hear.plugin to other location

Then run Premiere Pro and After Effects as you wish

After finished, reverse by move Hear.plugin into its original location, and enable Hear

This is workaround. I have wrote to Joesoft to get them to solve this problem, perhaps, new version that work

I also found from my search that Hear also crash BeaTunes as well

After upgrading to 5.0.2, Premiere Pro 5.0.2 crash on startup with EXC_CRASH (SIGABRT) error on the crash log.

My Mac is Macbook Pro early 2008, Intel, running OSX 10.6.4

However, in some unpredicatble startup, it start up OK,

Don't know what is the problem but it won't work for me. Uninstall and reinstall won't work either

Help please

although this is neither a mac help forum nor am i sure whether it is the right place for help requests, nevertheless, it may be of use for all in the same situation:

- in most cases there are access problems due to incorrect file/folder permissions:
so, i recommend repairing the permissions with e.g. Disk Utility

- in other cases the desktop file (more or less the TOC of your volume) may be out of order or damaged:
i suggest repairing the volume from another partition or suited statup disk with Disk Warrior

only if these two measures do not yield any improvement, there are probably file conflicts/incompatibilities of installed/running processes that require further tedious investigation.

Does not work on my 2009 MacPro 8 core Nehalem with Snow Leopard. Of course Final Cut Pro does work just fine so I can continue my work. My advice is to avoid this software because the team that works on this must be dysfunctional. Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign work just fine! Premiere Pro won't even open properly. Too bad I wasted my money!

Been using it for over 4 months and it rocks AND IS ROCK solid for me!
After years of FCP I would never go back!
ANy serious pro who hasn't already switched or tried CS6 should do so immediately..

I recently upgraded from the Creative Design Suite CS3 to the Master Collection Suite CS4. Everything runs great, with one exception: Adobe Premiere Pro, which is THE reason I decided to go with the Master Suite. I was so impressed with On Location to manage my rapidly growing stock footage library, which is part of Premiere Pro and you can't use it, if Premiere Pro crashes on launch. I spent all day on the phone with Adobe tech support, being routed deeper into their system three times before I reached the Premiere Pro expert. He was pleasant and patient and we tried everything he knew, but without success. He said, "it's an extension conflict with Apple, and they'll have to fix it before my program will work on a Mac.

When you invest $2,400 in software--this is not the "pass the buck" solution you expect. Waiting for some programmer to write some code in the hopes you might eventually be able to use this software. If I want it sooner, I'll have to pay $70 an hour to speak to Apple tech support. Then, today, I watched a tutorial on Premiere Pro CS4 on a Macintosh computer. Go figure! If you're on a Mac, I'd hold off buying this upgrade until the bug fix is in. If anyone has an answer, I'm ready to hear it.
