Premiere Pro - CS4
Hi, Having a problem with Premiere Pro on the network I import a Video file .mpg and all I get id media pending, and its been sat like that for almost 30 mins and its not even a minute long.
Works fine on the local machine, but not when I log on as a student, staff user or my own admin account. anyone have any ideas?
Couple of things we had problems with when we first rolled out CS4;
1) Premiere doesnt like UNC paths so in our case, my documents is redirected to home drive means the file path is \\servername\xxxxx\yyyyy\zzzzzz etc, Premiere doesnt like this. We have to remind people to use the mapped H drive as that simply directs to H:\filename
2) We have noticed a large improvement in performance based on 1gb switches not 100mb. We also noted some difference in performance when tracing back right to the server which the media is located on and clearing any bottlenecks.
Just a couple of things to think about.
We also have had problems with file formats which we have more or less worked around now.
Dont know if the above will help, as i said they are issues we noticed and resolved so fingers crossed for you :)
Just wondered if you have had any luck getting this sorted?
