Seriously, nobody has warned me of anything on these forums, apart from Bluntman, who was a little excited at the time. I have no idea what Kap’s going on about.
I’d like to point out that I’m not advocating the use of illegal downloads. I’ve paid £300 for Vegas 4 and that’s what I use for my films.
Indy asked how people can afford Premiere, and I gave the answer that I suspect to be true. I would be very surprised indeed if all the Premiere users on this forum had paid full whack for their software.May 12, 2003 at 1:19 am #2684

… Besides, Kap, you’re not even a moderator. You couldn’t really give out any sort of punishment even if Buxton did do something wrong.
No, but I am, and I will! (just kidding) (though, I could, but I won’t….anyways…)
Fellow mods please correct me if I’m wrong, but I think to be on the safe side, we shouldn’t even mention the illegal software-acquisition avenues that may or may not exist. One, to avoid any legal troubles, and two, to avoid any future confusion over this topic.
Note that the FAQ clearly states this isn’t a warez site, so blatant things like “Where can I download a copy of xxxx?” or “Click here for all your cracks and serial needs!” is definately out of the question and even ban-worthy.
That all said, allow me to answer the original question. Adobe Premiere is worth the money and so is Photoshop. I was able to purchase them (and some other programs) through the bookstore of a university in my home town. As a student/employee I’m entitled to software discounts sometimes up to 75%. You should check and see if this option is available to you.
Also along the same lines, find out if your workplace has any software agreements with Microsoft or Apple, etc (maybe even Adobe). There may be a clause that allows employees to run single copies on home equipment. You can then have perfectly legal installations of expensive titles like Office, Windows, Mac OS.
