    captured video playing fast


      hi i have no clue what is causing this but i have it fixed now but would like to know why this happens to fix it faster in the future. this have also happened to me in the past so its not a one time thing.


      ok so im captureing video off my mini dv camera (6min of video with audio) and its capturing fine. i save the video and all is fine. when i brought the video in to the source preview window or the sequence and play it back the video is speed up like it only captured one frame every 10 frames (this is what it did) but the audio is find but out of sync.(like you speed up the video sepetetly from the audio) so i tried to recapture. same thing. i do this 3 times before i get it captured correctly. i capture some more clips fine then another part of the tape starts doing the same thing then eventually fixes its self.


      any one know what could be causing this? it may seem like not a problem to you but i dont want to spend 20 min capturing 6 min or video.

          This is certainly not normal behavior.  My first guess would be a corrupt installation of Premiere.


          As a test, try playing one of yoru sped up clips outside Premiere.  The KM Player or VLC, or example.

            Try capturing with Scenalyzer. Much better than PR. If you still have this problem, something else is amiss and you need to give more details on your settings and workflow.

              i tried what jim sugested and played one of the clips in windows movie player (only because that what aiv opens with by default) and it played fine. So the problem is with premiere. i noticed when i put a sped up clip in to the timeline it has the red bar above it that shows it is unrendered. when i render it it stays the same and the speed is set to 100% nothing abnormal.

                Next step is some details.  What model DV camera?  How is it connected?  What are your capture settings?  What are your sequence settings?

                    Now, I don't see anything you're doing wrong.  Things should work fine.


                    Next would be to follow Harm's advice and try another capture utility.  Scenalyzer or WinDV.  Try those clips in Premiere and see how they work.
