You can get around this by going into your sequence settings general tab and changing the editing mode to desktop, then chaning the preview type Mictosoft AVI.
I agree this is a bug and I have a case with Adobe about this as I write this, but frankly they're just wasting my time, dodging the issue and showing how they simply don't care about their customers at all once the money was exchanged. CS4 is the buggiest most unstable version of Premier ever.
Just out of curiosity, what type of hardware do you use? Is it a PC or a Mac? I cannot recreate this problem on an older PC system, but it is 100% reproducible, at least for me, with Windows XP SP3 on an Intel DP35DP system and Q9450 processor.
Thanks for catching this and updating both related posts.
I'm using a PC, Pentium 4, single core processor, hyperthreaded. A 500 series Pentium. FSB 800MHz. DDR2 at 566 MHz. I'm using Windows XP, SP3. Your PC looks to be very new -- I don't think hardware has any connection to this bug. Maybe people on Macs don't see this, but for PC's, it will come and go. I haven't tried your settings yet. I've been so frustrated by Premiero Pro CS4 that I've stopped using it.
I don't blame Adobe's R&D engineers for this. Management saw an economic slowdown coming, and obviously made the decision to do a fast release and get the revenue in. And hoped they could follow up soon enough with bug fixes to keep from losing too many customers.
The reputation they have now gotten for themselves is now so severely damaged, I think they are too late to recover from this debacle. It will take them a good 2 or 3 future releases, maybe by CS6, before they can restore goodwill from their customer base.
I didn't post an update, but a couple days ago, I found the problem would go away sometimes. Restarting the computer, then relaunching PrPro CS4 would sometimes get me to where the yellow "media pending" problem on rendered segments would not occur.
I'm using HDV. I don't see a setting for Microsoft AVI. Are you sure your settings aren't just for DV?
