    When making adjustments with the shadow controls the program and source windows go crazy and blink. I cant see what i’m adjusting. Is Colorista II not ready for CS5.5?

    This has been an ongoing thing between Adobe and RED Giant…

    The text fields all function normally, but there is some small hitch in the way Colorista wants to do the graphic UI vs how PPro does it.

    Many of us did a lot of complaining back when Colorista2 first came out. Last I had heard, Adobe did something but now it’s in RG’s court or some such thing.

    The software is good enough to endure some inconvenience, but it’s probably high time it was ironed out…

    That’s not good news. I keep hitting gotchas lately with Premiere Pro 5.5. I’m a FCP7 editor looking to advance to another NLE. I like Red Giant effects and Colorista II a lot and it works great in final cut except for the rendering but the adjustment previews are real-time with both preview and waveform. I need that same functionality with premiere pro 5.5. I have a bunch of CC to do and was hoping to use Ppro to do it.
    I did a XML out from FCP7 and opened it in premiere without a hitch until I tried to playback with AJA card. Original sequence has settings baked in so I had to copy and past into a new sequence to see playback with AJA card. Not a big deal but still a workaround.

    Erik, you may want to call Red Giant support and see whether the 1.3 update for II fixed the problem (On Windows 1.1 colour wheels were just not very responsive…none of the blinkng and flashing you’re talking about) And there’s also a completely new version out which may have eliminated any problems….though it is a paying upgrade.

    I must be the only one on this forum but I MUCH prefer using the 3(or 4-way) color correctors in Synthetic Aperture Finesse which comes free with AE, and as a result do all my CC in AE on adjustment layers.

    I’m not sure that expecting a 64 bit program designed and released in 2011 to read the third party hardware settings from a 32 bit program with only minor structural changes since 2007 (when Adobe was current as CS3 with no multiple sequence settings within a single project) is a realistic expectation.

    I understand that Premiere Pro loading FCP projects is hugely helpful for FCP users who have decided they need to migrate, but Adobe has had 4 drops (CS3, CS4, CS5, CS5.5) since FCP was last really structurally upgraded. (Apple did not really present the 2009 changes as a major version upgrade and most of my colleagues who used FCP didn’t think of it that way either…)

    PPro does some things differently than FCP…that’s a given.

    I would use AE but AE has no waveform so I don’t know if my adjustments are legal. I need that.

    [Erik Naso] “I would use AE but AE has no waveform so I don’t know if my adjustments are legal. I need that.

    This is a major issue with the CS system right now. AE has color management…but PPro has the scopes.

    This is a situation that has been pointed out to Adobe by those of us who have been here a while. It’s an important workflow gap that needs addressing.

    I have reason to believe that it is front and center in the development priorities.

    So let me make sure I’m understanding this right – does Colorista II work in Premiere Pro CS5.5? Specifically on a Mac?

    I’m in a similar position as Erik in that I need to find an NLE solution in this new post-FCP world, but Colorista II is a HUGE part of my workflow. I want Premiere Pro CS5.5 to be my solution moving forward, but if Colorista II doesn’t work that’s going to be a huge problem.

    Can anyone address this???
