Try a test edit by converting mpeg(s) to movs.
How do I convert them (do I convert them to .mov files inside of PremierPro CS4)? I don't know how to convert them? If I do this will it align with all the editing and splicing of the multiple video files in my timeline?
Is it OK to edit with .mov and .mpeg files in the same timeline?
I am assuming you are on a MAC
Use QuickTime Pro to convert the files.
MPEGs are not ideal editing media and can cause issues (maybe like the one you are experiencing).
I can try this using quick time pro (but does this mean that I have to redo all the editing I did with all my MPEG files that are pending? or will/can I relink the converted mov files to the edited work in the timeline without having to redo it?
Hi - I've JUST had the same problem - that's why I'm here - BUT ..
I found an incompatability between 25 fps of the timline and the 29 fps of the video footage.
I was experimenting with moving the project around between hard drives. I don't know how it changed or even what changed, though I'm sure something did. So I re-captured my footage making sure it was at 25fps and used the "replace file" on the FIle menu and it (almost) replaced all of the occurances of the bits of the original file with my new one and it almost all works.
I hope this helps.
