Premier Pro was a considered purchase for me and I thought that the quality would be better than Sony Vegas Movie Studio, alas no. Transitions are very jumpy for one. When I import AVI files from my Traveler DV5000 and create a project then save it and close, upon reopening no video plays, just sound. If I double click on the source file and play it, I can then play the project file but there are no thumbnails in the timeline. When I export (I have tried umpteen options) all I get when I try to play it is one still frame and sound.
Forgive my ignorance if I am doing something stupid and I know that this is a ramble but, at the moment my £70 Sony product looks to be head and shoulders above Premier Pro, surely this is not the case.
