Photoshop CS6: Give us QuickTime Export Back!

With Photoshop CS6 QuickTime export is replaced with Adobe-own software. Due to this change, I cannot export video files in commercial quality, using codecs like Avid DNxHD or Cineform.

The "send to" fnction in Avid Media Composer suffers with a new problem: If the video clip has "super whites" , this leads to color artefacts in the imported video at high luminance values. With Photoshop CS 5.1 all worked fine. (See imported clip into PS CS6 compared to CS5.1, below).

My plea: Give us QuickTime suport/export back!

Hallo John,

first: this does not prevent the coro artefacts shown in CS6 compared to CS5.1.

second: the render opions given do not include any of my usual QuickTime codecs, such as Avid DNxHD of Cineform-HD/2K (see screenshot below).



For my application (video editing with Avid Media Composer) CS6 is not usable, CS5.1 is. Therefor I repeat:

Give us QuickTime encoding/decoding back and trash your Adobe replacement!

I am also upset about this, having upgraded from CS3.

Why remove a useful feature? It's not like it adds physical weight or increases the shipping cost.

Also, my help function is broken out of the box, I don't like the new lasso cursor, and I miss the ability to drag a selection box in the zoom tool.

Also Premiere crashes when I try to import video from my camera, and in general is not ready for prime-time.

This "upgrade" is all crapware.

Because my help function doesn't work, I just found a Photoshop Reference PDF. When I looked for information on how to regain this missing export functionality, the section on saving videos is out-of-date, and all about CS5.

I have exactly the same problem--- and one more---
I regularly need to save out in Techsmith codec to contribute to customer projects, PS CS6 camnnot deliver this-- so I need to use an old version to export-- which is really a bummer.

Also Script interpreter has been changed and some older scripts do not run any more, in my case that is the Anime-Studio exporter script.

Looks like the new PS CS6 "professional" exportwise is more of a downgrade than an update, professionally speaking.

I find my self working with PS CS5.1 all the time, which is kind of not why I bought into the cloud.
