In Expert mode, do you see a yellow orange line along the top of the timeline, above your clips? This would indicate that the program was not able to match your project settings to your video specs.
If you render your timeline (by pressing Enter) does it play more smoothly?
What processor do you have and with how much RAM on which operating system?
After rendering no all lines are green. Playing goes smooth, but some clips are still left out. So not parts of clips or dropouts, but random complete clips.
I am using a HP elitebook 8570w with a intel i7-3630QM and 16 gb of RAM on windows 8.1 64 bit and adobe premiere elements 12.
So are you saying that you did see a yellow orange line above your clips on the timeline in Expert view? This indicates that your project specs do not match your video specs.
What are your project settings (as listed under the Edit menu)?
What specific model of JVC Everio did you shoot your video with and how did you get the video from the camcorder to your computer?
Their are indeed some orange lines, but not on all clips.
The settings are:
AVCHD 1080p square pixel
The camera is a GZ-EX515BEU recording at 1080p 50 fps.
The files were transferred from the sd card to the computer and then imported into premiere.
Was all of your video shot at 1080p50 -- or is it possible you shot some of it at a different frame rate (50i maybe)?
Your camcorder is capable of shooting at different frames and different resolutions.
If you are seeing yellow orange lines above some clips when you add them to the timeline, that means that some of the clips are not 1080p50.
If you right-click on a clip that is not displaying properly and select Show Properties, what properties does it display?
Also, can you confirm that your computer has the latest version of Quicktime installed, per the program's requirements?
Looking into the orange lines I found out that the properties are not different, but that my girlfriend (who worked on the project) accidentaly lowered the opacity of the clips to 0...
Installing quicktime solved the audio issue.
So two problems solved at once
Thank you for your help.
