Odds are you need a Cineform preset for editing. The Cineform manual will probably have that info.
The Cineform manual says only: "CineForm AVI files are compatible with all Windows applications that support AVI files such as Adobe Premiere Pro... Both Premiere Pro and Sony Vegas include 24p (23.976p) and 25p presets."
Which is true but none of them are labeled "Cineform" -- instead I have (for 1080) AVCHD, DVCPROHD, HDV, XDCAM EX, and XDCAM HD. All camera formats. I could just make my own preset I suppose -- does it REALLY matter as long as the framerates and resolutions match my footage? (I suppose a potential "gotcha" is that Cineform doesn't directly support AVCHD's 5.1 sound - it converts it to std stereo)
I use NeoScene and there is no Cineform preset.
But I downloaded the Mainconcept MPEG Pro™ HD 4 plugin for Pro trial, then unchecked all importers in the Toolbox.
Select an avchd preset from the Mainconcept presets and if all is wel there should be no yellow line.
I use it for HDV with a Mainconcept hdv preset but i see no reason why this should not work for avchd.
none of them are labeled "Cineform"
I thought installing Cineform for Premiere included a buch of Cineform presets, in their own folder. This was certainly the impression left by previous Cineform users.
I found this in one of Cinefrm.com's pages: http://techblog.cineform.com/?p=1230
"Setting up Project and Sequence Settings in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 (Windows)"
..which basically says: "set it up yourself based on the nature of your source footage"
Its the same as choosing a avchd preset and dropping the Cineform avi's into and still the yellow line.
