For those upgrading to Adobe Premiere Pro using an OHCI compliant firewire card, be forewarned: "Adobe Premiere Pro always conforms audio files as they are imported. This may decrease system performance as audio is being conformed. When audio is being conformed, you see a progress bar at the lower right corner of the Adobe Premiere Pro application window. Full performance is restored when conforming is complete, and the conformed audio allows instantaneous audio playback."
Be forewarned that this took an hour for my last project - a three camera Catholic mass - and added several gigs to my hard drive in the "Conformed Audio Files" folder. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is a major step backwards for Adobe's latest version of the Premiere software isn't it?
