What format are the clips? You say AVI but this covers a large number of codecs. If you do not know the "type" use GSpot to find out.
Depending on the AVI type you could try converting them to DV-AVI using Windows MovieMaker. DV-AVI "plays" flawlessly with PE4.
Hi Paul, and thanks for looking at my problem.
I've used GSpot to find out the codec type. The AVIs in question are MJPG. GSpot says the codecs are correctly installed.
Any ideas why they might not be working in Adobe?
Premiere Elemenst can have issues with MJPEG files. Usually re-installing an MJPEG codec will resolve the problem. You could try this free one:
Otherwise you can open the file in Windows Movie Maker and export it as a DV-AVI that wil be compatible with PE4.
If the MPJPEG CODEC that Paul linked to still does not work, the MainConcept (not free, but not expensive either) has been working well for a lot of folk. Link
I normally recommend the Morgan MJPEG CODEC, but it seems that some cannot get it to work well in Premiere.
