Anyone got Adobe Premiere 5 for Mac working?

Postby JulianRichards » April 26th, 2014, 9:00 am

I've got some old video projects created in Adobe Premiere 5.1c for Mac that I'd like to revive. My copy of Premiere 5 says it's expired (I didn't know software did this!), and I've tried opening the documents with Premiere Pro 2.0 for Windows, but this says the files are corrupted. I'd like to check that this is indeed so before giving up. Is there anyone out there with the original software working who'd be prepared to just see if they can open a few (totally inoffensive) project files?

Thanks

You're probably going to have to find a working copy of Premiere prior to "Premiere Pro" which was a total rewrite and replaced earlier forms of Premiere.

Have you tried (on your Mac) simply setting the date back to 2000 or so and see if that helps?
I am now telling the computer exactly what it can do.

Hurray! That worked, and the files are still OK! So now I have to find a version between Premiere 5.1c and Premiere Pro 2.0 and see if I can open them in that... Thanks!
