What are your export settings?
It happens with ALL export setting that I've tried. In fact, it happens in the playback window when I'm editing, even before I've exported. And, curiously, the same raw footage looks fine in the source window.
Thanks John -- okay, here's my answers:
- What version of Premiere Pro? Include the minor version number (e.g., Premiere Pro CS5.5 with the 5.5.2 update).
Premiere Pro CS5.5 with the 5.5.2 update
- Have you installed the recent updates? (If not, you should. They fix a lot of problems.)
- What operating system? This should include specific minor version numbers, like "Mac OSX v10.6.8"---not just "Mac".
Mac OSX v10.7.5
- What kind(s) of source footage? When telling about your source footage, tell us about the codecs, not just the container types. For example, "H.264 in a .mov container", not just "QuickTime".

- If you are getting error message(s), what is the full text of the error message(s)?
- What were you doing when the problem occurred?
- Has this ever worked before?
- What other software are you running?
It occurs regardless of what else is running or not.
- Do you have any third-party effects or codecs installed?
- Tell us about your computer hardware. Be especially certain to tell us about third-party I/O hardware (e.g., AJA, Matrox, Blackmagic, MOTU).
Processor 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory 12 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB
- Are you using Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration?
Not that I'm aware of.
- Does the problem only happen with your final output, with previews, or both?
Preview window and final output. Not in source window.
Screenshots and sample movies are often very useful in showing exactly what you're seeing, and can thus make getting an answer faster and easier.
What sequence settings are you using? Any effects added to the clips?
Thanks Jim -- does this help?

You sure you recorded progressive? Have you tried an Interlaced sequence?
I also thought that might be the issue -- however, the first one below is recorded on progressive, and the second is recorded on interlaced:
The up and down movement is evident in both. Also, in the first video (Interview with William Anastasi) the same up and down movement even occurs with the second camera (aimed at me asking the questions), which is an entirely different make and model.

Your YouTube video is playing at 30 fps. While you edited the video at 25 fps.
I think your export settings are the problem. Choose one at 25 fps and see if that will solve the shifting.
I've tried rendering in different fps settings -- matching, not matching. It doesn't make any difference. I've spent most of today trying diferent types of formats on a short clip -- the only difference is it makes is to the *amount* of up-down movement. I'm seriously considering ditching Premiere and buying Final Cut Pro. I feel like I've wasted literally hundreds of hours on unpresentable edited video.
That only your video is moving and not the overlays concludes that there a differce in the source material and the sequence settings you're editing in.
Tripple check your source material and your sequence settings. What I see in your clip is a framerate problem.
That you wanna invest in FCP is a choice only you can make. Apple is going down at the moment, harder then they did in the 90s, only now Steve isn't coming back...
Okay... I might be getting somewhere here. The Timebase setting in Sequence Settings is 23.976 fps, while the source material is 25 fps. It's greyed out, as is Editing Mode (AVCHD 1080p square pixel). The source material is AVCHD 1080p square pixel, so that's not a problem. But how do I change the fps in theTimebase setting?
You don't. You cerate a new sequence properly matching your media, then copy/paste the clips into it. (You may have to make some adjustments at the edit points.)
I read that the Sequence Settings become locked once you start editing, so I created a new sequence, but the settings to 25 fps and just cut and pasted my timeline onto the new sequence. And hey presto.
At last. Thanks so much for your help, everyone -- particularly BeeldBakker. I hope Apple isn't going down, btw... I'm sitting here surrounded by that logo.
Thanks Jim -- that's exactly what I did. There were some cuts that needed rejigging, but it's all good... perfect, in fact.
