I suspect many people pay for it using the national currency of the state of K***a.

Buxton is right. 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.

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.

OK, you’re just freaking me out now. If you have something to say, either PM me or email me and use proper sentences and everything. That’s usually much more successful than cryptic one-liners.

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.

I agree: Buxton is not advocating the use of this piece of software, but it’s never wise to wake sleeping dogs. The situation in software-land is bad enough as it is, and I don’t think programs like these are the solution. I edited out the name.

Oh, and IndyA: get a job! In my country, about two to three months of delivering newspapers (every morning) will make enough money for it.

ok after all the bickering is anybody gonna answer the question? premier inst all its cracked up to be. if you want some good stuff get Adobe after effects. it can do almost anything premier can except for some transitions and soem cheap junk which many people are having trouble with by the way. get after effects because it does the same thing plus all the amazing FX you can do with it. :)

Being in middle school is no excuse to not have a job.

I, too, am in middle school, but I have a job.
And I had one last summer.
And I earned enough to build a computer,
and that expense doesn’t even begin to compare with how much money I’ve spent on my girlfriend…

Fine then, don’t deliver newspapers.
Bag groceries, file papers, clean up..
Finding a job isn’t hard if you care enough to try.
