Nikon D4 Video Files "Stutter" in Premiere Pro CS5

Apr 30, 2012 8:20 AM

I have been using a Nikon D4 to shoot video for about a month.  I edit on a 15 in MacBook Pro Dual Quad 2.2MGh with 8GB of RAM.  I was shooting on a Nikon D3s and the video files were 720x1280 at 24p avi's.  The D4 is set at 720x1280 30p .mov and are H.264.  When I'm editing the D4 files I get a lot of stuttering and won't play in real time.  Has anyone run into this?  Do I need to encode my D4 files to Apple Pro Res for editing? If so, suggestions on an encoder?

    There is a work around on Windows that may solve the issue.  Try renaming the clips from .mov to .mpg.


    I don't know for certain that that will work on a Mac, because I understand Macs don't rely on file extensions like Windows does.

    Yes, this is fixed in Premiere Pro CS6.


    Regarding renaming: Bridge is great for batch-renaming.
