I have a 1080P video recorded with an Hauppage capture device. It's 2 hours long, ~6 gigs. When I watch it in Windows Media Player it looks fine. When I try to edit it in Premiere there's crazy scanlines over anything that's moving. I'm not sure if this is a problem that can be fixed with sequence settings (I've tried them all) or something else, but I'd appreciate advice. I'd imagine it's a fairly common thing, and I feel like this issue has cropped up before using the Hauppage to record things >90 minutes. I've tried coverting the video using 3rd party software (Xilisoft Video Coverter), but then when I import it into Adobe it interprets it as 30 minutes longer than it is and everything is out of sync.
Please advise if you can! Thanks in advance!
This kind of stuff is not intended to be edited because of the extreme compression, but you can try a consumer application like WMM or Magix or try to get the original source material from the copyright owner. Normally 2 hours would take 25+ GB or a multitude of that with better codecs, and that is already heavily compressed.
What are the full-specs. of the files, produced by your capture card? This ARTICLE goes into more detail, and adds links to MediaInfo and G-Spot, two good, free utilities for gathering the files' specs.
With that info, someone might be able to suggest a conversion format, and conversion program to use, but Harm might well be correct, that a different NLE program, might be better - it just depends, and the information on the files will tell.
