Update to 3.20 and try again.
ive had a look - is that just a free download or something id need to go out and get?, thanks for getting back to me!
It is free and you can use the updates option in the Help menu to get it.
>the clip frame rate is 29.97fps but the sequence rate is 25fps
That suggests that maybe you're using NTSC clips in a PAL project.
these are the properties of the clip
File Path: L:\THEBIGDOCO\tape 3\t3.mpeg
Type: MPEG Movie
File Size: 11.4 GB
Image Size: 1440 x 1080
Pixel Depth: 1440
Frame Rate: 29.97
Source Audio Format: 48000 Hz - compressed - Stereo
Project Audio Format: 48000 Hz - 32 bit floating point - Stereo
Total Duration: 01:02:29:07
Average Data Rate: 3.1 MB / second
Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.333
im positive that i brought the clips in as PAL but cant see anything that indicates that in the file properties?
The file properties say they're NTSC clips. So, edit in an NTSC project.
awesome, thanks - ill try that, i presume you are just telling its an NTSC clip from the frame rate in that case?
Even in CS3 3.20 there is a bug around NTSC and PAL time codes. In a PAL project with PAL sources, the project window displays:
which is obviously incorrect. This has been escalated at Technical Support, but I'm still awaiting an answer.
How can a clip, which is clearly indicated as 25 FPS have a duration of 00;01;29 when it should be indicated as 00:01:24? Adobe has not found the cause yet and it is not pressing, merely a slight grievance.
What exact camera model were the clips recorded with?
And in my case with the Sony HVR-Z1U, set to PAL.
I wasn't aware of the PAL display problem. Seems the footage really is PAL. Which means I'm out of ideas.
ah, so you reckon that my footage possibly could be pal then or would it absolutely 100% be NTSC?! - im kinda lost... ive just installed the 3.20 update but it doesnt seem to have made any difference to anything
im scared this is going to mean a ridiculous amount of extra work!
The P designation in the type indicates a Pacific model which is PAL (being meant for AU, NZ, etc.). I don't know whether the A1 can be switched from NTSC to PAL and the other way around. I know the Z1 can. So check that and also check your camera manual for the specs.
thanks for your help, i really appreciate it
i just got this message from another forum....
1. Delete all your files form the Media Cache
2. Upgrade to Premiere Pro 3.2
3. Open your Project/s
4. Wait for the re-indexing and Conforming
5. Edit without A/V sync issues
Where is my Media Cache?
1. Edit > Preferences > Scratch Disks
2. Look for the path to Media Cache
3. Delete it with any file browser
How do i upgrade?
1. In Premiere Pro, go to Help > Updates
When you have re-indexing the files you can go to Window > Events in Premiere Pro and see the report that says that you have dropped frames on your media. The dropped frames causes A/V sync in Pre 3.2 versions.
The 1080i footage shot was with a Sony A1P. The properties of the mpeg say the footage is at 29.97fps. When i import the footage into a new project with a sequence of 25fps the fps of the clip changes to 25fps after indexing and then conforms when i import the footage into a new project with a sequence of 29.97fps the clip still changes to 25fps after indexing.
What sequence rate should i be using? - i was wondering if this would also have been a factor?
i tried all of the above - upgraded and then opened up a new project, imported the file, it indexed, conformed and then was still not syncing up. i got these error messages when i looked into events...
Timecode inconsistency in MPEG stream detected around frame 224. Audio
may be out of sync by 209 frames
mpegError in MPEG stream detected around frame 223
Don't shoot MPEG. :)
