Re: FCP X destroying audio edits in XML output
by Jeremy Garchow in the Apple FCPX or Not: The Debate Forum
I'm sorry, but isn't this the nature of any exchange format? X2pro, which creates what I am assuming is an official AAF, doesn't work everywhere, like Audition, an audio editor. Pr can sort of import AAFs from x2pro. Is this x2pros fault? Or the incoming program's fault? I think you've...

Thanks for that.

Re: Premiere Pro CC: importing Keyboard Layout?
by Armando Martins in the Adobe Premiere Pro Forum
The Premiere Pro CC 2014 settled in Portuguese and, as I am accustomed to using the program in English, I changed the language from Portuguese to English by changing the files pt_BR to en_US. The problem is that with this change, I lost all keyboard shortcuts. What should I do...

Re: corrupt mov file from 7d
by Cristian Chiru in the DSLR Video Forum
Wow, this is a very old post :) The limitation of that software was that it processes only 50% of the file. So, to overcome this, one can simply create a file by appending the file to itself, creating a movie with twice the same data. So the program will...

Re: I love PP CC! / I HATE you PP CC. Can someone shed some light onto 4 big issues I've run into my first 6 months in the trenches with Premiere?
by Ivan Myles in the Adobe Premiere Pro Forum
I think QuickTime 32-bit processing is slowing you down (as others have mentioned), and the data storage system is a bottleneck during uploads (likely the SATA II data flow). To improve uploads you could distribute the source files across both RAID arrays and get a dedicated SSD for the cache...

2010 Apple patent includes some Final Cut Pro X concepts

When importing, the copies you make within Media Composer are not new copies of media, but new pointers to the same media in the Avid MediaFiles folders. So deleting "media" from any of the clips, be it the original master clips or the copies, will delete the media for all....
