I am having difficulty with importing some footage into Premiere Pro (6.0.1). I have an Avertv HD DVR capture card, and capture in uncompressed avi (YUY2). Premiere Pro has no trouble importing 480i or 1080i captured footage, but when I capture in 720p (60 fps), if the file is longer than 7 minutes, Premiere Pro will only import the first 45 secs or so of the file. The whole file will play fine in Windows Media Player and VLC. I have tried capturing from the card both in the software which came with it (Avermedia Center) and Virtualdub, and have the same problem when trying to import it.
I am having a variation of this problem with Virtualdub captured 720p footage. A 2-3 minute file will import into Premiere Pro just fine, but a 5-6 minute file will import into Premiere Pro with the full length of the program (audio is fine), but the video is black (the file does not seem to import as an audio only file, there is a video ‘line’ in the timeline).
I have attached a GSpot analysis of one of the longer than 7 minute AVI files.
These are my computer specs:
Processor: Intel i7-3770 Ivy Bridge
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3P LGA 1155 Intel Z68
Videocard: SAPPHIRE FleX 100314FLEX Radeon HD 6870
Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit SP1
Memory: 16 GBs RAM
Videostorage: RAID 0 w/ RSV-S4-6G RocketRAID 622 PCI-E 2.0 Raid Controller
Mercury Engine Acceleration is on
Thanks for your advice, the use of the UT Video Codec Suite has been exceedingly helpful in capturing video. It has made 1080i capture much simpler.
Unfortunately it has not solved my 720p import problems.
I have played around with several different configurations. If I record 720p at 29.97 frames, the whole video imports without difficulty, but the sound is messed up. But when I try to import 720p video at 59.94 frames, Premiere Pro will only import the first couple of minutes of the video if the video is longer than 7 minutes.
If you have any further advice, I would appreciate it.
