Is your camcorder AVCHD? If so, Premiere is NOT compatible.
No, it's a MiniDV HD camcorder ( HV20 ).
Here's an update.
I just did a test, and loaded the full 1 hour of video ( mpeg format )
into Premiere ( where it was originally captured ), and tried playing the video at different spots on the timeline.
Everywhere I played the video, the audio and video is not synced. This is disappointing.
Does this mean that my system is not fast enough / powerful enough to even play a video of this size ? ( 12 gigs )
My system is a Pentium 3.2 ghz, 2 gigs of ram, and 500 gig sata hard drive.
Intel chip ( HT )
If the computer cannot play the video and audio in sync at all, (without any editing ) then it is already producing errors, so there is no use in even using this original footage ( it's pretty much impossible to do so it seems )
Anyone know why this is happening ?
What preset did you use? Even though the camera shoots 24p it still puts it in a 60i wrapper. If you chose a 60i preset and you are still having problems then you are experiencing the Premiere bug with sync. You can try capturing with HDVsplit and that should correct it until adobe releases the next 3.1.2 update to fix the problem.
Try also NOT using the MPEG Format if you can. The 24P/60i wrapper is always an issue with these.
Good luck and let us know if you figure it out.
Like tlc said, don't use Premiere Pro to capture the clip. HDV capturing in Premiere is currently broken. It has been reported on these forums that the devs have duplicated the problem and are working on a fix.
Capture with just about any other tool and you will be able to edit the HDV clip just fine in Premiere.
