Default Anybody using Premiere Pro CS3 or CS4?

Would like to start making some youtube videos with PPCS3 and haven't bought any books yet and most of the online tutorials I found via the goog is the suxor. Anybody in SF got any books or anyone know where to get started?

I can use photoshop and illustrator and contribute but premiere pro is confounding.

I just bought Premiere Elements and the thing is a real dog. I've got complaints into Adobe and I want my money back for this thing. It crashes every five to ten mouse clicks and runs so dang slow it's not possible for me to stand it. At work we use Avid Media Composer and Apple's Final Cut Pro. I also have Avid Liquid but wanted something to do 720P HD editing on ... Premier was a big mistake.

Vista 32 - patches on Vista, Premier V8 and Quicktime codeck
Intel quad 2.4 over clocked to 3.0 Ghz (and completely stable with every other program made)
4 GB over clocked RAM
SATA2 RAID 5 for editing
NVIDIA GX260 video card

Most of the crashes appear to be memory errors were with 2.8 GB of RAM left it starts complaining that it's low on RAM. Photoshop CS4 has no problem so I know the Adobe code moneys somewhere know how to manage RAM.

I'm thinking of buy Final Cut Express and a matching Mac to run it on. Have a look at B&H Photo as they carry books on production. If you like on-line video tutoring had some very good courses -

Thanks for the link, I'm on it.

I have played around with Premiere Pro, and have seen some consumer-level vids on youtube that were just mind-blowing, so I'm going to tough it out. Probably go down to the bookstore today......Anyway I'm running a similar set-up (2 Quad Q6600@2.4GHz, 4G RAM, 64-bit Vista), and it seems to digest all commands quickly and without a hiccup.......
