No Adobe Premiere Option in 1.6?

I recently installed the new Adobe Premiere 6.0, followed by the new 1.6 Fast drivers. Yesterday I captured a video file (DIF format) and marked the various segments in Fast Forward. When I was ready to export the video to Premiere, I discovered there was no Adobe Premiere option???

I've looked everywhere in Fast. There's no "film reel" in the tool bar, and no Adobe option in any of the menu listings.

I selected Adobe Premiere 6.0 in the export settings, but there is still no way to export the video to Premiere?

I can't figure out how to load the marked video segments (all part of one DIF file) into Premiere manually either.

My video is currently stuck in Fast Forward, and I don't know how to get it into Premiere. Help!

I thing the icon was changed, that's all. It is now called "third PArty" and it will launch premiere if your captured files are dif.

Steve,

> I thing the icon was changed

That icon is not available in my 800x600 graphics mode. I temporarily increased my screen resolution and found the icon, but it didn't launch Premiere properly.

I had four scenes defined in Fast Forward, and in Premiere they were all the same scene?

This isn't usable as it is now...

You have not set your export settings correctly. You have a couple of choices, one of which is to put all the scenes on one timeline, one after the other ( as you seem to have)another is to have scenes on alternate timelines where you simply have to add your own transitions . Theres another choice but I cant recall....basically it looks like you have jumped in down and dirty without thoroughly getting to grips with the software. P.S....800X600!!! you must be joking?? 1024X768 is the minimum you need to be using!

I tried the three available settings, and got similar results. Premiere indicates that my four different segments are there, but each one is actually the same video segment. Something is getting lost in the export to Premiere 6.

800x600 is the resolution I am comfortable with, and should be more than adequate for DV video. I have been using this resolution for some time, and it works fine for all of my applications (except the new Fast 1.6).

By the way, 1.5c exported just fine (using the 'Adobe Premiere' menu item). I'm only having problems with 1.6.

For your information, a screen resolution of 1024x768 is one of the minimum requirements listed on the box and in all the product literature. As you have discovered, you will not be able to see all the buttons if you use a lower resolution.

In version 1.6, click on the button for the drop-down menu on the top left-hand corner of the screen. Select Settings then select Export Settings. Where it says 'Export to Third Party Product' select Adobe Premiere. You will then be able to use the Export button to export directly to Premiere.

So it is...

Regardless, I think most users are still running 800x600 graphics modes and, other than the buttons across the top, the Fast Forward program works fine in 800x600.

Version 1.5 works fine at 800x600 because there are menu options for all of the button functions (like the Adobe Premiere export).

I've gone back to version 1.5c and the service pack until a menu option is added back to 1.6.

Most general purpose PC users perhaps, using 1280x1024 myself.

But it is dangerous to generalize, especially about higher tech stuff. Given the horsepower needed to do NLE, which imples newer machines, my guess is that 1024x768 is the most common resolution for single monitor DV.now AV systems.

I also believe that nowadays, the most commonly used resolution is 1024x768. It especially applies to most PC users using LCD panels as the 800x600 mode of a 1024x768 pixel panel is awful.
