    Jerky playback in CS4

    Chris Nelthorpe Level 1

      Hi guys,

       

      I downloaded the 30-day demo of Premiere Pro CS4 last night to edit my .mxf footage, but the playback is extremely jerky when I drag a single clip to the timeline. My PC has a 3.2Ghz processor and 2.0GB of RAM. Is that too little...? The footage was shot on an HVX200 at 720PN, 25fps.

       

      Failing this, I'd like to convert the footage into another format so I can order it in my copy of Prem Elements 7. Can anyone suggest a comparable format so that the quality won't be too badly affected? The strange thing was that when I tried exporting a clip last night in uncompressed .avi format, which made it about five times the size of the original .mxf format, it played perfectly smoothly in Elements.

       

      Confused,

       

      Chris
