    If you have problems updating Adobe Premiere Pro CS4

    If you try to update Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 to a later version with Matrox Mx.tools installed on your computer, you may receive a message that the update was unsuccessful. If this happens, you should temporarily stop the Matrox WYSIWYG plug-ins. To do this, right-click the icon on your Windows taskbar and choose Exit. You can then run the Adobe Premiere Pro updater again. To restart the Matrox WYSIWYG plug-ins, choose Start > All Programs > Matrox Mx.tools > Matrox WYSIWYG Control Panel.

    3 Quit Adobe Premiere Pro.

    4 Under the folder where your projects video preview files are stored, delete the \mtxTemp folder.

    Note When you open your project after deleting the \mtxTemp folder, your project will take longer to load because a new \mtxTemp folder will be created that supports your split clips.

    5 Start Adobe Premiere Pro and open your Matrox project. The separate parts of each split clip that you previously imported to the project are now recognized as single clips. Youll therefore have duplicate copies of the split clips in the Project panel and on the timeline.

    6 Use the Trim Monitor to shift the In and Out points of the split clips on the timeline to the correct start and end points for the sections of t
