Sometimes the encoding of a video is defective in the eyes of Premiere. Have you tried using the Media Encoder to re-encode the file? With all the video encoders and their different encoding techniques you are bound to encounter this problem more than once. for me it is not even a question anymore, When it happens the first thing I do is re-encode.
And even after re-encoding, sometimes I'll have to use the video from one source and the audio from another.
Maybe one day there will be encoding standards.
The iPhone is defective in that is does not record with constant FPS. You can either:
- Forget about it.
- Convert to an editable format.
- Use a consumer program to try to edit this stuff.
how do i re-encode? what format etc? I'm a newbie thanks!
those are all my options? what should i use to convert it to an editable format?
This is the million dollar question. It is a somewhat complex procedure if you are not familiar with video editing. But you can easily find tutorial of all kinds, starting with the adobeTV tutorials. then there is Lynda.com with a subscription fee that has an unlimited number of very helpful courses. Plus there are also a multitude of free tutorials available all over the Net. Just google "Encoding tutorial".
