I have Premiere Pro 7, no CS es, or addons.
I have been banging my head off the wall over and over again with the constant problems I'm having. The latest I have ran into is inported .mp3's being cut off at the end. The first 80% plays just fine, the last 20% of the clip is non existant.
The clips play just fine in 3 different music players I have, and in Audacity ( my audio editor and recorder ). Why is part of the clip simply not importing into Premier?
The clips are created by me, in standard .mp3 format. Nothing exotic, just voice naration.
I've attached one the .mp3 's
I can't tell you why it's happening, but the solution is to use .wav files, not .mp3 files. Even more so if you're the one making the files. Use .mp3 only when that's the only copy you can get your hands on. And even then if they don't work, you convert to .wav files first.
Does any one know why .mp3 gets clipped?
MP3's come with a ton of "baggage." Some might be things like embedded album art, but there can be more.
As per Jim's suggestion, unless I am dealing with a tiny SFX MP3, I always convert to PCM/WAV 48KHz 16-bit. I use Audition, but one could use Soundbooth, or the freeware program, Audacity.
