I have recently upgraded to premiere cs5. I was using premiere cs4 and there was no yellow line above my timeline, the project preset I'm using is exactly the same one an yet it shows differently. Why is this happening? Why does cs4 show no line at all and cs5 does? Even the playback in cs4 is better than in the new cs5! I have tried all the avchd presets and they all show this yellow line.

There are 4 possible indicators.
1. Nothing, in which case no rendering is required.
2. Red, in which case rendering is required for the most fluid playback.
3. Yellow, in which case rendering is likely not necessary for playback, but is required on export
3. Green, in which case the timeline is rendered.
OK, yes I understand that. But why is it happening only on cs5 and not cs4 using exactly the same project preset in both. I would seem to me that it should work in the same way in both versions of the program. And even more strangely, why is it playing back better in cs4. This onluy happens with avchd files, I have anothe camre (hdr fx1000) that produxes an mpeg2 file and that has no yellow line over the time line in both versions of premiere. Thanks =)
Hi, I tried already tried doing this but the little hand icon that grabs the clip instead of showing a plus sign when it hovers over the new item symbol shows a circle with a line running across it and it doesnt create the new sequence. What am I doing wrong?
I don't know how did you make it without yellow line in CS4 - with AVC-HD!!! I always had it there!!!
And had to render files after importing into Timeline cause it was jittering....
Now, it CS5 i still get the yellow line over some files (those in HDSLR presets), but they play smoothly in FULL RESOLUTION QUALITY!!!!
No way that playback was better in CS4 - for me, of course - that is only thing I enjoy about CS5 actually - its speed!!!!
Maybe that is your problem with playback - right click on your Program Monitor and choose lower Viewing quality (choose 1/2 res) - that is also the default value in cs5, if I am not mistaking!
What is your config? (do you have enough RAM??? I had to switch from 4 to 8 GB of RAM to have CS5 work really smoothly with great, FULL RES. playback, even with unredered effects . like color correction and others - and I don't own CUDA VGA - so WIN7 64bit and PPRO does it's job very well in that part (I still get those yellow lines above CANON 5D footage - and they are showing up to warn you that something in that file isn't exactly matching the Preset's settings - although, I don't know what, cause it is HDSLR preset, exaclty for that kind of h.264 AVC-HD ---- It won't hurt your playback, but it will render when rendering entire sequence or exporting finished project file!
As you say, the yellow line tells you that something is not matching between your footage and your project. I cs4 this line never appeared but in cs5 I cant get rid of it (using the exact same present used in cs4). My computer is well capable of handling cs5 with no problem, I have window 7 64 bit 6 ram. The other thing is that cs5 supposedly has this new feature where you drag your clip to the new item symbol and it creates a new sequence with the correct preset for you footage but this doesnt work either, it just shows a bloked symbol wwhen it hoversm over. I have no idea why this is happenin and yes I can work like this but I would be nice to know what is going on...
I join that.
I'm trying to edit footage from SANYO Xacti HD1010
I used to open these type of files in CS4 with the AVCHD 1080i 60fps preset
with gray line and with smooth playback (no need for render)
and now in CS5 it opens with a yellow line and with a jerky playback.
lol, 5 minutes after my previous post I found the solution for this issue.
Premiere CS5 is set by default to playback resolution = 1/2 quality
(you can change it in the output submenu under the monitors).
I changed it to full and it fixed the jerky playback.
and now it is smooth like butter.
though the yellow line is still there but it works great without render...
I guess because those kind of camera's output is so compressed that playing it in 1/2 quality
gives you a very bad preview.
I hope this will help others..
How do you get rid of the yellow line? I'm having some issues with export errors. I'm brand new to Premiere not to editing. I assume there is a button to push when you exsport that will render the yellow line. Is there a way you can control the destination of the file as well?
Don't worry about the yellow line--at least, not in regard to any export errors you're receiving. Read here for information on the render bars: Red, yellow, and green render bars and what they mean « Premiere Pro work area
If you're having problems exporting, start a new thread with all relevant details about your sequence, source footage, export settings, and hardware/software setup.
