I just did my first real project with CS6, and I am very pleased in general, though I have a slightly problem once i a while.
I edit Canon XF, 35mbps, 1080 50i. Once i a while (2-3 times pr. hrs.) I get a frame like this:
I have made my project settings via rightclick on the clip and make it auto. If I save and close Premiere and open it back up, that frame can be ok, but then there might be another one another place. I have checked the org. footage, and it is ok. If I put an effect on the footage arround the place and render it from 'red', it is ok too.
I get a few per hour too when I render, have so far only tried H.264 720 25P preset with maximum render quality.
My system details are: Win7 x64, Intel i7 3820, 16 GB RAM, SSD boot disc, 2 separate 10K 600 GB for media & render, Geforce GTX570 with the latest Nvidia Driver, 296.10.
This is of course no showstopper since it is pretty rare, but if something could be done, I would not mind
Thanks for your reply, Jim, I will.
In the mean time I tried something else. The first ingest was made through Prelude. This afternoon I tried to import directly into PPRO via the build in media browser, and there has been no problem since then (made a test project with the same footage).
I don't say that there are issues with Prelude, it might even have been a restart of my PC that did the trick, but the issues is gone for now. I even tried to repro ion my old test PC (which do not have Prelude) and could not with import directly into Pre,iere..
I will upgrade the graphics drivers anyway after making an image of my system / program drive.
Ulf, would it be possible for you to supply a small sample file(s) that exhibits this issue? If so, I will PM you a location to upload the file(s). I am currently investigating a similar-looking issue being reported with XDCAMEX files.
Is this happenning during pans?
No it is not, and it was not the same place all the time - funny thing is, now I cannot repro - tried to play back 1 hrs. footage several time last night to repro, but could not. Maybe my system is cured for now, I don't know.
I have just upgraded to CS6 from 5.5 and having the same issues with footage from Canon XF305 on a Mac Pro, I downloaded the latest upgrade last night, but sill have problems. Any Ideas?
It is a known issue, and Adobe is working on it.
In the meantime you can either use the XF-utility to export an MXF-file or use 5.5 to transcode to f.ex. XDCAM HD 422 files.
There is another thread discussing even more about this problem:
We are having the issue as well. I'm wondering if this is a priority for Adobe at all. This is a terrible bug for anyone using Cannon .mxf or Sony XDcam-EX. I was expecting a patch quickly. It's at the point where I've been recommending to Premiere users not to upgrade to CS6.
I've contacted Tech support and asked to be given a License to Premiere CS5.5.
Has this issue progressed at all? We're having the same problems too. We shoot almost exclusively on the sony EX1, and this is causing us massive problems - we just don't have time to be constantly transcoding everything before editing! I notice that the last reply from someone from Adobe staff was the 13th June... that's quite a long time ago, is it getting fixed soon?
Well, I'm not 100% sure about the progress, but I think many people cross their fingers for a fix soon.
There is another thread reg. the same issue, which you might want to follow too:
Lets hope for a fix soon
Our very good friends at Adobe tech support acknowledge the problem and have given the bug a number. Youl'd think they would have a fix by now, wouldn't you? I'm stuck with using CS5.5.2. Possibly Adobe's waiting to see how loyal their users are?
