Q&A: How to restore Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 settings to default?

Question by Darmok: How to restore Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 settings to default?
I’m currently editing a video on Premiere Pro CS4 but I’ve somehow accidentally changed the settings for a particular feature. When you have clips on the timeline and youre putting them next to each other, when one reaches the other usually a little line appears between the clips to show you that theyre right next to each other, and perfectly alligned (one not overlapping the other etc.) for some reason this is now gone, and its quite annoying. Does anybody know how to fix this? Thanks in advance

Answer by Glenn
From now on, just use the Ripple Delete. It closes those spaces for you. No need to drag. Just right-click in the space. To reset your settings, you can delete the Preferences folder. If I recall, it’s in My Documents>Adobe>Premiere Pro>Prefs

Q&A: How can I add subtitles to a video using Premiere CS4?

Question by Paloma Barriga Olarte: How can I add subtitles to a video using Premiere CS4?
I have a video and I’d like to know if it’s possible to add subtitles directly with Prmiere CS4 or if I need any other software. Thank you all!!!

Answer by Bonce Bonce
Though it would be tedius, you can do subtitles using the Titler:

The only other option within Premiere would be to use a third party plugin, likely expensive like eztitles.com

However, it is usual to do the subtitles as part of DVD authoring. If you have Adobe Encore, that would be easier. Or you could generate the subtitle data (.SRT, etc.), e.g. with Subtitle Workshop
http://www.urusoft.net/products.php?cat=sw
though you’d need to render/encode with another program if you want ‘burned in’ subtitles.

I would avoid rendering as ‘burned in’ unless stricly necessary – much better as DVD or SRT (youtube and nearly all media players render SRT).

How to export Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 video to DVD?

Question by 1by1: How to export Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 video to DVD?
I have edited a movie in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 and want to burn it to DVD. Exporting the media to DVD format using Encoder will take 130 hours as it shows (it’s a 2-hour video). I tried importing to Encore and it’s really slow as well. How can I burn the edited video more quickly to DVD?

Answer:

Answer by Bonce Bonce
On a 2GHz dual-core processor (enough to operate Premiere CS4), it could take maybe 10 to 16 hours to render 2 hours to DVD using Adobe Media Encoder or Encore at their default quality settings. It might take a little longer if you have lots of effects. It should not take 130 hours, but you still have to be patient if you want to render 2 hours of video to DVD at reasonable quality. You could try reducing the quality settings in Encoder to get a feel for how patient you will need to be, but I wouldn’t trust the displayed ETA.

It’s important to plan such renders for overnight (not a few hours before the render is needed, which I keep learning the hard way). If you’re going to regularly re-render a large project after small changes (e.g. for review purposes), try to manage the project as a series of smaller sequences for which you need only update the chapters which have changed in Encore (reimport the timeline for just that chapter, if it isn’t dynamically linked).

I don’t think it’s worth bothering to render out an intermediate file (using a quicker codec) to then use a separate encoder and DVD authoring package, unless you are already familiar and keen to use that other package (sounds like not).

Is the project i made in CS4 premiere pro can be open/imported in premiere pro CS5?

Question by hammerfist: Is the project i made in CS4 premiere pro can be open/imported in premiere pro CS5?
im having problems with the CS4 premiere.. it crashes every time i play the video i edited in the timeline.
Im planning to switch to CS5… I heard that CS5 is much stable compare to CS4..
btw im using i5750 and a win 7 32bit.

Answer:

Answer by techie_guy_007
Yes. All Adobe software is backwards compatible. Once you open your CS4 Document in CS5, it may update your file, but it will open it. The best thing to do is to open the file in CS5, then “save as” and rename the document. This way (in case anything goes wrong) you still have your original document (authored in CS4), as well as your new CS5 document.

Play back in Premiere pro CS4 is really slow and hard to edit , how come?

Question by Oily skyes: Play back in Premiere pro CS4 is really slow and hard to edit , how come?
I try to edit in Premiere Pro CS4 but i can’t because the play back is really slow. I have a Macbook Pro core duo with 8 GBs of ram. I watch videos on youtube of people working with this program and they don’t have no delay at all. I have lowered the quality of my footage but that don’t help at all. Some one said its because i use the original file of the camera? what the proper way of doing it?

Answer:

Answer by John Thom
Premiere uses the Hard Drive as virtual memory to do it’s work what it’s looking for is a contiguous space if you could use an external HD connected to your laptop as the “Scratch Disk” this might be your problem.

Without knowing your full computer specs, the input settings and your out source I can’t give you a definitive answer. Yet using Premiere as much as I have that was our biggest one.

Also most of the Editors I know like using FCP on laptops as it can get away with the Scratch Disk problem.
