What CODEC is INSIDE that file? http://forums.adobe.com/thread/440037
Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... a screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing
Also, does your sequence match your video?
Please NOTE that the PPro CS6 screen may look a bit different (I use CS5)
For CS5 and later, the easy way to insure that your video and your project match

Along with the questions and suggestions offered above, what is the make and model of your video card?
Also, what is the version and date of the installed video driver?
With respect to you and John T Smith..I am never sure about the value of asking about codecs, wrappers and video drivers etc. in an instance such as this one.
I dont know of any of those that turn images upside down or into B&W.
I also never understand why a Video Card Driver might work perfectly one day and then has issues the next.. because it is suddenly not the most current version. How does it know and who does it tell? :-)
Obviously in a case such a this..we are not informed if the OP has ever had a system that worked... and we are not told any system details... so that stuff would always be helpful to know up front before helpful guys like you two ..dont waste time digging for info and then thru the clutter.
eg OS is kind of basic info that is frequently not provided!
Ok I have a Sony HXRMC1500p for a camera, but in this case I just exported a intro I made in After Effects (h264 format) and then imported it into Premeire. My video card is a AMD Raedon HD 6670, it is up to date. I am currently updating Premiere pro so we will see what happens...Only if everyting worked
>intro I made in After Effects (h264 format)
OK... I am not going to be able to help, since I don't use AE
If clips from your "Sony HXRMC1500p" work properly, without the AE clip, then my best guess is you are doing something wrong when you export from AE
Your Settings look fine.
That is really weird.
Do you have access to another card you can install.
Premiere crashing means you do have some other issue (that may also be related).
Do the camera original source files play nicely in Premiere?
Are the original camera files mp4 (extension) or have you transcoded them?
Historically, there have been a few instances, where a bad video driver has yielded similar displays - B/W and upside down. Not sure if this is the case here, but wanted to rule it out.
With video drivers, I have charted many instances, where a simple OS update, has rendered the video driver obsolete, so that it works one day, but not the next. As most Windows OS's are installed with the default of Auto Update, the user is often not aware that something has been done to their OS - it is transparent to them. Then, things that worked the day before, cease to work properly the next.
When troubleshooting, I find that it is easiest to rule out the "usual suspects," though what might be the "usual suspects" to me, might be alien to some others.
In very general terms, the problems with PrPro fall into:
System (could be video driver, or other)
Normally, I start at the top, and work down, just because of the % of cases, that I have seen, or read about.
Just like with an automobile, that will not start, I begin with:
- Fuel delivery
And work down. If the first 4 check out, then they get quickly eliminated, and we move on. I admit that it is simplistic, and several possibilities might be quickly eliminated, but then, if we jump to esoteric possibilities, and omit some common issues, then much time is wasted by not asking the basic questions first. Sort of like "My computer does not work." My first two questions would be: "is it plugged into an active mains," and "did you turn it on?"
Also, some of the easiest questions to answer, whether correct, or not, might also be the easiest to fix. That is what I am always hoping for.
Thank you for that info.
Sounds like we can probably rule out the video driver (as Craig hoped... )
Now, I assume that the AE Comp plays correctly, prior to Import into PrPro. Is that correct?
Will check below, as much has happened in this thread, since I last visited it, and you probably mention whether you used ADL (Adobe Dynamic Link) to get the Comp into PrPro.
The AE comp plays fine and you mentioned that it works some days and not the next, well that is very true...one day it will work like it should the next it will be all wierd and crash...Oh and I do not have the budget or time to replace the video card and I did just recently buy the CPU I am using. Lastly will updating to Windows 8 help this issue at all?
I think its a bad export, try exporting again.
Edit: this issue might have something to do with your other post.
