The Plug-in installed to VAIO computers now (as of February 2001) is for [Adobe Premiere 5.1].
Please contact your local VAIO support centers regarding the Plug-in dedicated to [Adobe Premiere 6.0].

Article ID 006109-00615 : "Update program of DVgate Plug-in 2.3.00.03280 for Premiere 6.0"
- [DirectX8] is installed
If [DirectX8] is installed, applications that are pre-installed to VAIO computers as well as those of other manufacturers may be affected.
- A new AVI file format (AVI 2.0) is adopted.
The initial settings to output an AVI file with [Adobe Premiere 6.0] is to output it in the AVI 2.0 format (Microsoft DV AVI). This format, however, does not support the application installed to the existing VAIO computers. Problems such as the inability of playing back the file may occur and applications other than that of Sony may experience similar problems.
To playback a moving image with the use of Sony's applications, use [DVgate Plug-in].
(When you write the file with [DVgate Plug-in], it will be written in the existing file formats.)
