With all the info supplied, this is a mind reader saying it definitely has got to be OE.
In particular, Darren, we need to start with at least what kind of media you're using (from what camera), and what your sequence settings are.
Here's some details I hope it is enough?
Camera: XHA1 PAL
Shot at 25fps, shutter 1/50
editing mode; desktop
timeframe: 25 frames / second
frame size: 1440 x 1080i
pixel ratio: HD (1.33)
fields: progressive scan
preview video format: Windows AVI
codec: DV Pal
Maximum Bit depth and Maximum render quality Unticked
Program Monitor Settings:
Draft Quality ticked
24p Conversion Method - interlaced frame
I see several things that make me go "Hmmm".
First, why edit in Desktop mode? Premiere has both DV and HDV presets.
Second, your sequence indicates HDV, but the codec says DV. 'Sup with that?
Third, you shot at 25fps, why you converting to 24 fps? 24 fps is normally reserved only for NTSC source. PAL usually stays at 25 fps.
I noticed horrific performance when one chooses Desktop instead of a HDV template in CS4.
Try using a HDV template that fits the EXACT specs: frame rate, PAL, etc.
Thanks. I've nosed around the different settings and found everything you mentioned.
Where the issue lies now is that some settings (the desktop template versus the HDV template for example) are unchangeable.
I could start a new project but I have been working the film for about 8months and I created the .pproj originally in Premiere Pro 2.
Is it possible to change the editing mode after the project has been created? Or instead import sequences from other projects into the current project?
Thanks for the help guys!
Absolutely, just create a new Sequence (CTRL+N) and it'll let you choose a new setting for it. Whatever you choose will not affect any other Sequences either.
And yes, you can also import Sequences from other project files, including CS2.
Awesome, nice one. That has saved a headache of starting a new project and importing everything manually.
All I need now is Premiere to stop crashing when its rendering preview files :(
