1st, PPro Information FAQ http://forums.adobe.com/message/4200840 for the information you should supply when asking a question... such as you mention fcp... does that mean you are Mac?
>converted to DV (in MPEG streamclip)
Exactly what is inside the DV files you are using?
Codec & Format information, with 2 links inside to read
-read both links in reply #1 http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1270588
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
What is your exact brand/model graphics adapter (usually ATI or nVidia) and your exact device driver version?
Sorry- new to using this forum.
I am working with Premiere Pro cs6 with the most recent update installed.
Working on an imac from 2008
Operating System: Mac OSX v 10.7.5
Graphics ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro 256 MB
Processor 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory 6 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Codec Info of converted DV files:
note- I also tried using the original footage which was a combination of various mp4 and mov footage- various frame rates and sizes, some interlaced, some not- I am used to using fcp which doesn't handle mixed footage well, so i had converted them to DV streams (which was my old work flow in fcp- maybe not an ideal one)
