I am trying to work with video clips shot using a Canon XF 305 at 1280 X 720 at 60P FPS. Using the Canon XF utility, I have injested the clips from the card to my hard drive where they are stored as MXF files. Using Premiere’s media browser, I imported them into bins from my hard drive. I set up the sequence to match the clips settings . The video looks fine in the Source window but when I bring over onto the timeline- the same clip looks distorted with artifacts in the program window. I then used Adobe Prelude to convert the MXF files into ProRes 422 LT files with same resolution of 1280 X 720 at 59.94 frames FPS. I used the media browser to bring those pro-res clips into Premier and set up another new sequence to match the clips setting. I get the same problem- the video looks good in the source window but terrible in the program window when I bring them into the timeline. They are completely distorted with artifacts. This is the first time I have tried working with 1280 x 720 60p fps clips. I have successfully worked with 1920 X1080P 30P clips from the same camera with no issues. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong and how to correct my workflow will be appreciated.

Hey thanks for the tip. Yep that did the trick. Just came over from FCP 7 and still getting used to PP. I'm not sure how that setting got changed from full to 1/4 but that was it. Thanks again!
It does it on Auto from time to time... for me anyway...
