FWIW, you're still young. And, if you're fortunate enough to find enough work to stay in the business, you should - or at least could - be facing a somewhat lengthy career. Media and content productio

Rendering a sequence with multiple tracks: What "price" do we pay?

When a project has multiple tracks, with clips stacked above each other so that only the video in the top-most track in the timeline will be displayed, what happens to the video in a track below the t
Re: Rendering a sequence with multiple tracks: What "price" do we pay?
by Sam Lanes 6 years ago
The rendering process only creates a render file that shows what will be seen on the screen at that point on the sequence. Turning off tracks won't make any difference. http: www.aefromscratch.com

Peter, THANKS. It's a relief to know that. I love learning those little "tidbits" about software, but feel compelled to ask this: Is there a simple, or at least brief explanation as to why I see that

If you check around, you'll find a wide variety of methods used to develop rates. IMO, the most "fair" ones include: - a flat "rental" rate for your equipment, i.e. how much would it cost for your cus

Adobe CS2 Security Key suddenly questionable after years of use

Please help:

I purchased CS2 Production Studio Premium about 5-6 years ago and have been using it without problems since then. It came as part of a turnkey system purchased from a vendor who, unfortunately for me, is no longer in business, so this forum seems to be my best resource.

I'm running it under Windows XP Pro 32bit on a customized, vendor-built machine with double dual core AMD Opteron 275 processors.

Very recently, i.e. within the past 4 days - beginning, I think, on March 24, 2012 - whenever I start any program in CS2, I get the following message:

"The security key for this program currently stored on your system does not appear to be valid for this version of the program. Select Yes to enter a new key, or No to revert to the default setting (if any)."

Possible responses are: Yes, No, and Cancel.

When I select Cancel, I progress to the program I've started, but the message appears again, at least one more time.



This message appears regardless of what progam in CS2 I start.

This is a fully valid, legally-purchased version of CS2, therefore I can't understand why my "security key" is suddenly questionable after so many years of use.



Is the "security key" simply the serial number on the original DVD case? (If so, then why is it asking for the security key and not the serial number? If not, then how/where can I find the "security key" that has been used up until now, and is that the one I should enter if I respond with "Yes" to the message)?



I still have the original DVD case with the original serial numbers, but for fear of causing even more problems, I haven't tried responding with "Yes" and entering any serial number. (I'm in the middle of a project and can't risk the system not being usable due to an "invalid key" being entered).

Additionally, I don't know if this is causing any background-processing errors, i.e. is some process that I'm not aware of NOT running either because of my response or because the message is appearing?



How can I enter a "valid" security key or otherwise prevent this message from appearing again? Or, do I even have to bother? Is the appearance of this message an indication that some time-limit for continued use is now being imposed after years of use without problems?



Any help would be sincerely appreciated.



Thanks.

Martin, Thanks for joining-in. It's my understanding that such notices supposedly are somewhere in the fine print on tickets purchased, or are supposed to be displayed in clear public view at the tick
