Normally you'd use something like the BlackMagic Intensity card for this. Going through your graphics card may well be the issue.
thanks for your fast answer, but technical I don't see a reason why I need a Blackmagic card for this. The preview works fine with Sony Clip Browser, Edius5 or Vegas and this means that my graphic card can handle this very well... so why waste money for the Blackmagic card. Or is this a deal between Adobe and the card producers to buy their cards? What does CS3 different than these other software solutions?
Also the Intensity Card can't handle 1080p30 the Ex1 can also film so I would need a more expensive videoboard.
There is something between Premiere and the GPU that tends not to work very well. Some people can get things to work, seems like most can't. Whereas the Intensity and other cards were specifically designed to do what you want to do, so they tend to work a whole lot better.
But often with these cards, you can not work in the CS3 normal nativ settings for Ex1 footage.
At my knowldge when I would like to open a project which with a Blackmagic Card for example and I like to finish the editing on an other computer without that card you'll have a problem (because BM or other cards allway use their own presett window-right?). So you lose a lot of flexibilty by using a card or a third party codec like this. So it's not so future proof as just to work with the NLE Software itself.
I see this now with my old Premiere 6.5 Projects. I used a Canopus Raptor RT2 for this with the Canopus codec. That worked very very well, but now I can't use this project anylonger on a new editing CS3 station, because it doens't support these Canopus transitions and codecs. Also the only Windows Notebook based output solution is the MotuV4 box... not a very cost effectiv solution for a preview.
So again. There must be a sloution to get the problem with the diagonal lines fixed. Why does CS3 scale the preview when 720p footage should be displayed over a 720p output onto a 720p Monitor? No need for scaling? Or am I wrong with this?
It's a true point about presets and missing hardware. But I just don't have any other suggestions to make. Premiere has a lot of difficulty sending straight video out to a lot of graphics cards. The only sure solution I know is to use a card that was specifically designed for the task.
