    Intermittent Video Artifact


      When creating a movie in premiere 10, I have intermittent video artifact (always in same frames of particular video).  Videos play fine in Windows Media player.  Windows 7 32 bit, ATI HD6740M latest video driver, latest flash player.

            Thanks for the reply,


            My two video types are .mpg and .mp4


            Hopefully, I'm answering the Project Preset question properly.


            General Project Settings:

                 >  Editing Mode:  AVCHD 72p square pixel - this feature is "grayed" out

                 >  Timebase:  29.97 f/s - this feature is "grayed" out

                 >  Playback Settings - Aspect Ratio Conversion - Hardware;  24p Conversion Method set to Interlaced

                 >  Video

                      - Frame Size: 1280 horizontal and 720 vertical -this feature is "grayed" out

                      - Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square Pixels (1.0) - this feature is "grayed" out

                      - Fields:  No Fields (Progressive Scan) - this feature is "grayed" out

                 >  Display Format:  30 fps Drop-Frame Timecode

                 >  Title Safe Area - 20% horiz and 20% vert

                 >  Action Safe Area - 10 % horiz and 10% vert

                 > Audio - Sample Rate:  48000 Hz - this feature is "grayed"; Display format - Audio Samples


            Capture Project Settings:

                 > Capture Format:  HDV


            Video Render Project Settings:

                 > Maximum Bit Depth not checked

                 > File Format: 1-Frame Only MPEG - this feature is "grayed" out

                 > Compression:  MPEG I-Fram - this is "grayed" out

                 > Optimize Stills is checked


            Also, I played the suspect videos in Photoshop Elements 10 with no issues.  The artifact is not random...it always appears at the same frames in the same videos?  Any thoughts would be appreciated.  Thanks

              I of course can't see your file details, but I don't think AVCHD is the correct project setting
