Adobe CS5.5 Production Premium: Adobe Premiere: Initial Run

 Having got the suite installed and ready to use, I ran Adobe Premiere:

  • From Launcher, ran Adobe Premiere
    • A “First Use” dialog came up
      • Requested my Adobe ID
        • I entered it, consisting of an email address and password.
        • Response screen said: <<By providing an Adobe ID, you have set up access to Adobe CS Live Services during your trial period.
        • It also indicated it had sent email verification.
    • I received two emails.
      • First email
        • <<<
        • Thank you for providing your Adobe ID and downloading your Adobe Creative Suite® software trial. During your software trial, you will have access to CS Live services that further extend the capabilities of your Adobe Creative Suite software. Accessed from within your software, CS Live services enable you to accelerate creative reviews, streamline cross-browser testing, and easily host online meetings.
        • For quick and easy access to CS Live services, here is some important information you will want to save:
        • Your complimentary CS Live services subscription will expire with your product trial.
        • >>>
      • Second email:
        • Verify email address
          • Strange that this was sent after the email containing Personal Meeting Room address etc.
    • Thank You dialog gave link to tutorials:
    • I clicked the [Done] button
  • Adobe Premiere started up
    • Popup stated: <<Adobe Premiere Pro requires updated video card drivers for CUDA accelerated rendering.  Please download and install current drivers for your video card.>>
      • That’s what I was afraid of.  It’s making the same demands as DaVinci Resolve.  I cannot satisfy those demands, all updates are under Apple’s control – it is normal that laptops (as my MacBook Pro is) have customized versions of graphics card drivers…
      • I closed the popup.
    • Premiere prompted for [New Project] etc.
      • I clicked on [Help]
        • The Help panel, once populated (after a minute or so), included a [Getting Started and Tutorials] link.
