I have some 6 GB avi (and PP already cracked some more files with different codecs)
after import to PP file changed size, time and now cant be played!! Other soft and PP cant open this file - its corrupted!
i think PP do that!
Premiere Pro doesn't change the original files. It only references those files and the changes from trimming and applying transitions and effects are stored in the project file.
What created the AVI files? Is this DV AVI from a standard definition DV camera? Something you downloaded from somewhere?
Premiere Pro doesn't change the original files.
In "media" preference we have "Write xmp id to files on IMPORT" on by default!
and each of the source file changes when importing!
with big files something wrong and PP overwrite important data (like index)
Be careful! Disable this option!!!
