Two important issues:
K-Lite or any other codec packages should be avoided like the plague. Sometimes the only solution is a complete clean install of OS & programs. Adobe comes with all the codecs needed for editing. If you find you have material unsuitable for editing, convert to an editable format before importing into PR. Never install codec packs.
AVCHD may require more muscle than a quad core offers. Quad core is really borderline for that material.
Are you saying that even your 920 Quad Core i7 is borderline for AVCHD Harm ?
And if so what does somone need if a system like yours cant handle it.
Or does your disk setup make up for processor speed ?
Glenn, I should have been more explicit. A quad core from the Q series with a 775 socket or an AMD quad core is borderline.
Thats good to know since your scores have been some of the highest ones on the charts.
Were in the process of moving to a new home but after getting settled a new system is going to be in the works.
I will have to read up on your profiles again when the time comes.
At least windows 7 is now out and everything looks good so far.
I have the exact same problem.
I got the video to work by:
clip>video options>field options>always Deinterlace on one clip
clip>video options>field options>Flicker Removal
also works in the same sequence on a different clip.
So both methods worked.
With Vista the video worked fine but with Windows 7 I have to use one of these methods, why?
Could this possibly be a video driver issue.
And the good news about Win7 is that it not only is more stable and more compatible, but it improves performance by up to 10% over Vista.
my file was a AVCHD .mts file which played fine in Windows Media Player. I had the flickery video in Premiere Pro CS4.
A player is something entirely different from a NLE. You can't compare them.
I wasn't comparing them. I was trying to give infomaiton the might be a clue to the problem.
See if your system is properly tuned by running the http://www.ppbm4.com benchmark and submit the results to Bill. It will take less than 10 minutes, time that Jim Simon can't spare, but maybe you can. He flunked the test anyway...
I thought about performing a clean installation for Windows 7, but I dont
want to take the chance that that still might not fix the problem which will
cause me even more headache to reinstall everything else on my computer. I
will give a shot of the methods you mentioned, Harm, and get back to you
guys by tonight or tomorrow afternoon. If that still doesn't fix it, then I
will just temporarily edit in Vista until December. By then, I should have
more time to reinstall the OS. Thanks.
Yeah, my WMP also plays AVCHD .mts fine too, but it's PPro for some odd reason that does that. However, WMP plays .MP4 files as choppy as PPro with .mts.
you could always buy a cheap new hard drive and take out your C: drive and do a clean install on the new drive.
If you dont like the results you could swap back in the old drive and not loose anything.
then you could use the new drive for storage.
Just a thought: Glenn
Sounds like a plan. I will consider it. Thank you Glenn.
