I'm using Premiere Pro CS5.5 on a Mac Pro, running Lion. Had no issues with it at all until now.
For some reason, when I'm looking at footage in the source window the audio doesn't play. However if I leave it for a few minutes it 'compiles', the best way I can think of describing it as is buffering. but if I skip forward a substantial amount of time, say 3-5minutes the audio fails. I also have a slight problem with the video footage stuttering when viewing in the source window.
Looking back at previous edits that I've done they all work fine, its only effecting new edits.
I've trawled the net looking for answers, followed all the hints I've found from clearing the Media Cache database to reinstalling the entire collection to changing the audio hardware output
However nothing works.
They're the same as I"ve always used.
However, the problem seems to have sorted itself now? All I can think it is, is that Premiere is having to maybe convert the audio codecs?
It was just a bit weird that it suddenly started happening.
But as per your request, I think this is the right info:
Type: QuickTime Movie
File Size: 3.1 GB
Image Size: 720 x 576
Frame Rate: 25.00
Source Audio Format: 48000 Hz - 16 bit - Stereo
Project Audio Format: 48000 Hz - 32 bit floating point - Stereo
Total Duration: 00:14:24:05
Average Data Rate: 3.6 MB / second
Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.4587
Thanks for the help
PP will 'convert' audio from that source into 32 bit floating point for use inside of PP. If you try and play a file before conforming is finished, you can have issues.
In the lower right hand corner of the interface, you'll see yellow progress bars for the conforming. Wait till that's done.
