Premiere Pro is a professional editor, and has a tendency to work better with professional media - stuff you shot yourself on a DV camera, for example. Other kinds of video do tend to cause issues, so you're probably better off using another program to edit those kinds of files.
For the pictures, maybe try reducing their resolution closer to the SD spec of 720 x 480.
Yeah I tried that,I did use other media from a camera, which I must admit did work better (it was still terribly laggy but I did get audio); however what concerns me is that I was able to do use this beforehand, with the exact same files. Picture-wise too (They aren't exactly all that high resolution pictures in the first place). I had no issues until I recently decided to upgrade to CS3. Now even I can't get it to work on Premiere Pro 2.0
I'm pretty new at this so maybe it was just a fluke with Premiere Pro 2.0
(Sorry about the double post, I didn't really know where it would be best to post this)
Actually, I figured why it worked before and doesn't now. I really wasted your time. I'm really sorry.
Tell us what the solution was.
You cannot complain about lag if you do not post system specs.
Do you have a Pentium 1?
I'm definitely with Harm on this one. Remember that the forums are a two-way street. Others might encounter your post, years from now, and feel they have the same problem. Post the situation and your discovery, to help them too.
Also, remember that there are tons of different forms of media out there. Some will work well in Premiere, while others will not. One can make certain conversions, that might allow editing, but the quality of the output will suffer. How much depends on the original media, your conversion techniques, your processing in Premeiere and maybe a bit of luck.
