I have a 90 minute avi file that plays perfectly in sync in Windows Media Player yet when i import it into premier or audiotion on 2 different machines it is about 2 secs out of sync by the end. G-spot says the codec is Cinepak by Supermac and that is installed on my machine. it is a 23.976 fps file originally exported from FCP as a quicktime and converted to an avi. i've tried lots of different sequence formats, frame rates etc with no success. Can anyone shed some light on this?
Export from FCP with a useable format, not Cinepak. Cinepak is from the previous century and not really useable. Completely outdated. Use something like DV (type2).
Or DVCPRO HD for high definition work.
In PrPro on the PC, I have had great results with .MOV files from the Mac with the Animation CODEC. To date, no conversion necessary and no conversion. You might wish to explore this with a smaller FCP Export.
Working on a Project with 100+ of the suckas' right now and no OOS, and no Import issues.
