Help with Playback in Source Monitor

Aug 19, 2012 2:45 PM

when I import footage of a specific interview into PP, at 2;45 the audio suddenly jumps back to the begining of the clip while the video continues to playback as usual. The original file is fine, there is no problem playing it in any other program, and this only happens with this one clip, no others are affected. I've removed this clip and re-imported it, up-dated PP, and re-booted my computer all to no avail. Any suggestions? This is quite frustrating.... I've lost some of my previous work, and would just like to be able to have useable interview footage...


Thanks for you help,

    Have you cleared your media cache database? Also just wondering because you didn't mention, does this problem only exist in the source monitor only or does it do the same thing when you playback in the timeline. I'm assuming it's messed up in the timeline too I just want to be sure.

    OK, let's go back to the beginning, and post some details


    Start with


    Then on to:

    Read Bill Hunt on a file type as WRAPPER

    What is a CODEC... a Primer

    What CODEC is INSIDE that file?


    Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... a screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing


    For PC or

    If your timeline has a red line over the video, at 1st import and before you do any work... you have an incorrect project setting

    For just that clip, try exporting only the audio from the timeline.  Export it as an uncompressed .wav file.  Re-import it back into Pr and replace the original audio with the new audio.
