Re: Prem vs FCPX - Panels

Dude! You're just a permanent hater, and there's no getting around it. I'm guessing you have a "Death to Adobe" tat. Location, of course, has nothing to do with it. Its just where I am, and where I see a lot of Premiere. You may read where actual users are,...

Re: Final Cut Pro X Advanced Mask Transitioning

Re: I need to export an MXF with 14 audio channels ,could you give me a hand please?
by Tero Ahlfors in the Adobe Premiere Pro Forum
MXF OP1a has a bunch of different codecs and you should know what you choose for export because they have different specifications for audio tracks. That said you can't export only 14 tracks out of CS6. You'll need CC. [Joy Kawk] "That didn't work, I even delete audio track 15...
