Hello everyone! I'm having an issue using .WMV's within Premiere Pro, AE, and the Media Encoder. Whenever I open the image in a sequence or the source window, the image is cut in half horizontally (see pic below). I brought in an MP4 and had no issues so at the moment I think I have narrowed down to strictly a .WMV problem. The file plays perfectly fine in realtime; audio sounds great, picture (of what I can see) looks good; I am just missing the top half of any WMV file hehe. I have tried the WMV inside AE as well but have the same issue. I also tried to export the WMV with Media Encoder but it exports the WMV cut in half no matter what format I tell it to conver the file to..


My Premiere Pro, AE, and Media Encoder are fully up to date; my Nvidia 660 Ti is up to date; I just installed latest Windows 7 codec package; Just installed newest Windows 7 x64 updates.


Also, this is a big one to note...This is the first time I have used Premiere Pro/AE/Media Encoder on this system. I just built this PC about 1 month ago and have had 0 problems with it across other programs (Photoshop, 3ds max, etc..) I just recently installed Premiere, AE, Media Encoder on it and am running into this problem upon my first bootup of Premiere/AE/Media Encoder.


My system specs are posted below the picture and file specs.


The pic below shows my setup and the issue I am having. The video of Finding Nemo on the left is the .MP4 (specs on file are below) and the video on the right is the .WMV in question (specs also below.)
