    AVCHD Dropping frames issue on CS6? Any helping hands available?

    Jason R. Coleman Level 1

      Hey Everyone,

           I really need some help on this one. I've recently shot a project with a panasonic AVCHD camera and was told that CS6 will natively edit this footage. I'm having issues with playback that I can't seem to fix. It'll play fine for a few seconds, then the frame will freeze (dropping frames) and I'll hear the audio, but no video will play from that point. I have tried both importing the AVCHD folder and the Stream folder. Both do the same thing. The .MTS files match the timeline and all my other projects shot on everything from Canon DSLRs to Sony Cameras to iPhone footage al plays back fine on my system. My hard drives are ok.

           If anyone has any ideea on what I can do to fix this issue, I'd be greatly appreciative.
