I'm new to cs4...
when ever i put any footage onto the timeline, the footage skips every 7 seconds... if i stop playback and start it again on a different point of the clip, 7 seconds from whenever I hit play seems to skip. I've tried different footage from projects done with older version of premere that I know had no issue before and it still seems to skip every 7 seconds from when ever I hit play.
it is not a rendering issue as there is no red line... once I export to mpeg the clips dont skip. it is just very annoying to edit with this skipping every 7 seconds.
Anyone have this happen before?
Only with crappy source material. What is the codec in your source? Use Gspot and post a screenshot.
Since you are new, your computer is most likely not configured for video editing
