I am running PPro CS4.1 on
Win XP PRO 64 bit
8gb of RAM
Intel Core 2 Quad 2.5 GHz
I am having trouble with Premiere locking up on me this morning while working with clips that were shot on a Panasonic HMC 150 (AVCCAM) camera and shot in 720 60p. My sequence is a 720 60p sequence and prior to this morning I have not had any issues.
While trying to play the clips in the timeline it would
1. completely lock up and do nothing
2. show a green screen in the monitor
3. The CTI would move through the timeline, I could hear the audio but the screen would be black.
It would do any of those things at different times.
I tried to remove the clips from the scene bin and then re-import them and sometimes it would tell me that the clips size was to large and not import the clips.
I tried to close premiere and restart my computer and I would get the little window that would pop up and say that Premiere is still running and needs to be shut down. So I would end it and restart my computer but would run into the exact same problems.
So I started running System Information For Windows and took a look at how much RAM I was using and it was just sitting at 15%. That just seems really low to me for trying to play back AVCHD footage, but I have never payed any attenting to RAM usage before so I do not know what is normal...
Any help on this would be appreciated....
Well I have no idea why but yesterday afternoon and all this morning everything has been working just fine... There must have been something with which HDD the footage was on or something. I was messing aroudn with trying to stitch some AVCHD clips together and I had clips all over the place. After I kind of cleaned things up it was working just fine. I guess as usual it was user error...
