I can't imagine any reason this would happen!
Can you post a screen capture of your project timeline, with all of its video tracks visible?
Additionally, there are issues with the video related to its MP4 compression. What type of camcorder or camera was this video taken from?
hi I have the screen shot you asked. As for the rest of it, This is part of a security system (CTG Software) that we have had for 10 locations and over 3 years. I periodically have to attach to videos together for the legal purposed because one camera has audio and the other does not. Nothing has changed with this system in the 3 years we have had it. This problem did not start until about a month ago when I bought version 7. I did an upgrade from Version 3....
I did finally get it to work by converting the image to a different format. (used Nero to make it digital and imported that and it looked fine) Fortuneately it was a short video. Would like to figure out why PRE is doing this with this version. Its a lot of extra steps to do if I have a larger video.
Yes the Image is doubled in the timeline as well.
Possibly an issue with the MPEG4 format... converting to DV-AVI would probably resolve the problem.
I whole-heartedly agree, Paul.
The MP4 format, like the AVI format, is just a package. There can be any number of codecs used to produce the file.
In this case, I think you've got a non-standard MP4. Premiere Elements will not be able to work with it in its native format.
Prizm video converter may be able to convert it to an editable DV-AVI.
