I am taking an online course that requires a video editing software. The school said we can use Avid Free DV or Adobe Premier. The way the course is set up, we really need the Adobe program. However, my motherboard does not support SSE2 (my PC isn't even 2 years old yet). I have search online for a workaround and have a classmate helping me out as well. This is not a new problem with this program, ever since they converted it to PC from Mac it has had these issues. Adobe doesn't havce anything on their support forums. Any ideas for a work around?

SSE2 (Streaming SIMD Extensions 2) is apparently required for Adobe Premiere Pro 2 and Adobe Premiere Elements 3. This is required for real time previews, so you will be unable to install the program unless your system is capable of supporting it. This is not a motherboard resource, the SSE2 instruction set is included in certain processors, namely Pentium 4 or Athlon 64 and above. If you do not have such a processor, which would appear to be the case, then you will be unable to run the program. It is likely that your motherboard will not support either of these processors, so I would recommend using an earlier version of the software.

Any clue where I can get an earlier version of the software quickly? I do know I have an AMD 3000+ processor, I thought it was their 64 3000+ processors, but I guess it isn't.

I have used adobe premier 6 to Adobe premier pro 1.5. But I have not got this problem. I had one PC purchased way back in may'2003. So I can't say much about the problem. What is SSE2 will you pliz describe it. Yes, I had problem with opening avi files on my PC,in folder. The system hangs up. However I didn't had problem opening it with Adobe Premier. The system hang up problem later I resolved with help from some form and changing the open with option for the avi file.So what is SSE2? Adobe is offcourse a good product why did you go through some other software editing tools course lilke FCP. I haven't done but came to know from my friend that its the professional tool the industry using now a days. GOOD LUCK...

There really is not inderustry standard right now but it seems like most people use Premier. Anyways, SSE is an instruction set that is stored on the motherboard. Most motherboards have SSE, SSE2 and SSE3. Sometimes the SSE set is not enabled on a motherborad. My motherboard has SSE and it is enabled. I don't have the SSE2 instruction set.
