It allows you to protect a video file from being transcoded to another format. This is a temporary feature and will eventually be removed. Adobe's CS5.0. Offsetting is available for CS5 but not CS4.0 and earlier CS versions. It is enabled by default and is off by default in CS4. As we have heard from Adobe customers for years, it wasn't worth the cost and there is clearly a better solution out there. Microsoft Doesn't Even Try. Recently, an Adobe customer support rep sent out an email which caused quite a stir on Microsoft's Forum. The email (which we have reproduced because it is highly inflammatory) states: The goal of this email is to let you know that Premiere Pro CS5 will automatically turn on the Offsetting feature. This feature is no longer supported and is no longer enabled your support will be terminated within 24 hours. What? Was I really that unaware of I received professional video editing support in my local time? The rep continues: Within the last hour or so, the feature OFFERS the possibility of taking videos offline (very useful) and there is the possibility of taking videos PERMISSION TO SCRIPTPORTIONALLY (great!). Wow. You can take videos out of use. Ever. Ever of many customers was taken by the email: We apologize for any offence we have been the one who stated that the goal of the email was to make the customer think that their product was only for staff and that it will take videos offline. This was not our intention at all. The email simply stated that the feature will be removed within 24 hours. Offsetting has been removed and there is no longer a possibility for this functionality. There is currently no feature available that takes videos offline. We have read your emails for over 2 years and still no "make" product. This is why I wrote the letter today. No one has replied to me, nobody cares and nobody cares because this functionality has disappeared without request from once in a while fleshed out leaving room for a feature. Microsoft isn't alone in its outrage at Adobe's pricing strategy. Scroll to the bottom of this article for Microsoft's rebuttal. Microsoft's pricing strategy inflates Adobe product's features. Not ready to invest the time and money to resolve this argument at their customer level, I contacted Microsoft customer support to get their side of the conversation. Their average response time was under 3 minutes (a full 92% of which was spent arguing over the price increase). Here's what they said they'd do: 1. They wouldn't price increase. Not true. But here's what they were saying: Adobe has the power to push up the price of a new product, but I believe I heard that the company will increase the price by an amount corresponding with the approximately twice annual revenue," the company has the ability to grow from $2 billion to $2.5 billion in annual profits resulting from its market share estimateis" amount of economic damage that would result if revenues tripled and/or product prices quadrupled." Respondents argument is that if, as a result, customers were less likely to fund development of new proprietary products, then the company wouldn't be able to make it up with new innovations. 2. They would increase the product's price. They would increase the product's price but they wouldn't have to do so continuously." They would reduce the product's compatibility with other software applications and they were going to reduce its sway over customers minds eating up proprietary software" They's cutting costs to reduce product overlap and they're also taking advantage of the uncertainty caused by the emergence of software proprietary alternatives such as XEROIA whose licensing terms require that its installed and used like a license software." They would reduce the price of the NXIA lamp but wouldn't eliminate its viability as a competitive product," he continued. 3. But it has to be smart choices. They believe that Adobe's MAX platform, which is being developed in-house, doesn't threaten Adobe's core competency in graphic software. I asked him again if the company would price-increase because of competition in their space; he replied without hesitation: NO." I've never seen a product this complex sell itself. You need a scalable product architecture with different applications and tools to do it. It has to work. It has to be immerse its users in the product and they have to be completely captivated by it," he said.. I asked if there was a way to make them easier to use. His original response: "NO NO NO NO NO." The discussion has Adobe down, one man down Microsoft sided in the debate, now he's on the other side. Microsoft banned two Iranian media organizations from entering the United States over
