>Cinepro codec in .avi form
Does Cinepro have a download site for your to install an editing codec from them?
I've run MediaInfo (Good program by the way), and this is the information I got:

Again, I am very new to this, so I am constantly learning new things. I appreciate any insight you may have.
It may also be important to note that I am using the TRIAL version of Premiere Pro CC. I'm not sure if it cripples video output or not (I didn't think it did)
With regards to your question: Does Cinepro have a download site for your to install an editing codec from them?
I'm not sure.
Any research I've done has only ever turned up information about EXPORTING video in the Cineform codec.
The cineform codec comes with the GoProStudio software (which I have installed).
But very little about issues surrounding importing into Premiere... and everything I've read simply states that Premiere Pro CC natively supports the Cineform codec, which should preclude me from having these issues in the first place.
Hmmm... I'm sure there is an answer for this, but I'm not sure what it is:
When I reduce the sequence framerate from 59.94 to 29.97, it starts working fine. Perfectly.
Any ideas why this is?
FOLLOW UP: No... This isn't the solution because some of the files are still screwing up (flashing GREEN) and Premiere is crashing too.
I don't use gopro or cineform, but I do have a few links that may help
-below says Mac (Win process should be the same) but even GoPro says to convert to edit
-use to convert http://gopro.com/software-app/cineform-studio/
Yeah, here's the worst thing.
I tried opening the video in Cineform studio. But when I click on the IMPORT, it only allows me to import MOV or MP4 files. There's no ability to import .avi files. And if I try, it just ignores me.
This is a cluster-bug.
