My imported .avi video leaves traces of the motion occuring on-screen as it plays, both in the preview and when I export it. I know I've seen this before, but I can't figure out what it's actually called.
The video is fine when played outside of Premiere, but after importing it, these stutters occur regularly throughout the video. They are consistent, in that they happen at the same locations every time. I've been searching for a while now for a way to resolve this issue. I've mucked with a bunch of settings, but without knowing what this is and why it's happening exactly, I can't seem to fix it.
One thing I have discovered is that the video "appears to have dropped frames". I tried looking into this as a lead, but what I saw didn't look like what I'm experiencing. I could be wrong on this.
Welcome to the forum.
What are the exact specs. of you AVI file?

It is likely a CODEC issue, and knowing what is inside that AVI wrapper is likely the key to the puzzle.
Thank you for responding.
I'm not sure if these are the correct specifications to post, but this is the data I got from MediaInfo:

In addition to the links that John T. has provided, this article might be useful too: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3601973#3601973
Though he commented on an earlier version of PrPro, Jeff Bellune's tips might prove useful for dealing with the TechSmith CODEC's. See all links to Jeff's comments and tutorials.
Good luck and thank you for that information.
Yes, this video is a screen capture from Camtasia, and I have the proper codec installed.
The information you've provided has been fairly comprehensive, and I really thought I had something in the tips from Jeff Bellune, but unfortunately the problem persists. I have made a .gif of the distortion that I am experiencing, for visual clarification.
Is there any other information I could provide that would be helpful?
Do your sequence settings in Pr match the properties of the source video from Camtasia? If you play the Camtasia clip in the Source Monitor, what happens?
I just imported a 30-minute Camtasia tutorial video that's 1280x720 @ 15 fps into CS6 and I don't get any of the issues that you are seeing. I added it to a matching sequence. My video is full 32-bit color, but yours looks like it may have invited producing it at less than that. What Camtasia production settings did you use? How did you configure the Techsmith codec for production from Camtasia?
