I am having issues running Premiere Pro on OS X Lion with an NVIDIA Geforce GTX 285. It is crashing on launch, and seems to be a CUDA issues. It seems that there is a new NVIDIA driver in Lion, as it is listed as 270.05.05f01, while the most recent NVIDIA drivers on their web site is 256.02.25f01. And checking the CUDA Preferences it lists the current CUDA Driver 4.0.19 but says an Update is Required (though it is the latest CUDA for Mac Driver on NVIDIA’s Web site).
Since this is the relevant part of the crash log, it looks like a CUDA crash to me:
This looks like it is a driver issue with the new Lion Drivers for the Geforce GTX 285.
The only way I was able to get Premiere to launch was getting rid of the 5.5 folder from the Application Support:Adobe:Premiere Pro: folder. The program launched, but would not show any video in the sequence or from any clips, and once I quit the program, when I tried to relaunch I got the same crash again.
I have exactly the same issue, installed the .21 driver and Premiere CS 5.5 crashes while starting, tried different alternatives with no luck. When I uninstalled Cuda, Premiere worked again (mercury playback engine software mode only).
I can not comment on if this a genuine bug or not, however, if you want to file a ticket so that NVIDIA engineering will look and respond, then you can do so by signing up to become a CUDA Registered Developer.

Hi, I uninstalled the previous version of Cuda, rebooted the computer, installed the new developer drivers, rebooted and launched OS X while holding 6 + 4 to boot the 64 bit kernel and I can confirm in my computer GTX285 is working with Premiere CS 5.5. I just got to find a way for Lion to boot in 64bit mode by default.
I’m running a Mac Pro 2 x 2.26 Quad Core with 24Gb of memory.
I was hoping the new Premiere Pro CS5.5 5.5.1 and Lion 10.7.1 would fix my CUDA issues with my GeForce GTX 285, but after upgrading to Premiere Pro 5.5.1 I had to upgrade my CUA to 188.8.131.52 and my GPU Driver is listed as 7.4.10 270.05.05f01. Previously I had gotten Premiere Pro to work by forcing the mac into 64 bit, but now I am getting no CUDA support (premiere pro runs, but software only). I am still running in the forced 64 bit Kernel, but since that was the only way it worked before I assume it will still work, but I will try rebooting into the 32 bit kernel and see if there are any changes, but as of now I am once again SOL with Premiere Pro and my GeForce GTX 275 for CUDA support.
