[Dennis Radeke] "We built a version of Premiere for SGI once"

I used to use Premiere 4.2 on an SGI O2. Premiere was notorious for crashing at the worst possible moments... As I understand it, it was developed using a translator tool that ported Mac code to IRIX. It did have some cool features that the Mac/PC versions didn't have at the time, such as the ability to create your own 3D transitions that were accelerated in hardware. It also supported the O2's built-in video subsystem and hardware MJPEG encoder/decoder. I cut quite a few projects on that system before I eventually moved to FCP.
