When PE9 imports AVI's it "conforms" them

Unfortunately quite often it hangs at some point in the process. It could be 7% or for another file 25% etc. There is virtually no CPU usage, and Physical memory is around 50%, so it is not being overworked at the point of lock up. The only way to get out of the mess is the 3 finger salute and opt to close.


I cannot see a consistent reason why it does it, as the media being imported can be small eg 125MB and freeze, or be 1.5Gb and conform with no issues.


All the files have been created by the same program Audials one 9 via screen recording, and play equally well prior to attempting to import.


Perhaps it is not connected, but PE9 has an annoying habit of opening with previous information, either from Photoshop, or previous use in elements, even when one has selected "new project".


I have a Q9300Duel Quad processor, a Geforce GTS450 Graphics Card, and regrettably only 4GB of memory I am using Win7 64 service pack 1.


The hang information is as below.

    Premiere Elements will not likely work with video created by another program unless it is created to certain specs. It sounds as though your Audials program may be using a codec the program can't read.


    Open one of your AVIs in a program like G-Spot or Media Info and post the specs here.


    We're most interested in your frame rate, resolution and, above all, your audio and video codecs. If the programs come back with "codec undetermined" it's pretty likely you're not going to be able to edit that video in Premiere Elements.

    Xvid/Divx are output files, not meant to be edited (variations of the MPEG4 codec, often used for Internet streaming video) so, they mostly do NOT edit well (if at all) in any flavor of Premiere
