I also wanted to point out that I tried the clips in a 720p30 sequence and they play great until you add a cross dissolve then where ever there is a cross dissolve it play a different part of that clip...
Not enough handles causes that. Start reading on handles in the help file or manual.
Arn't handles just the space from the start of a clip to the IP or from the OP to the end of the clip? So if I had a clip that was 10;00 long and I set an IP at 01;00 then I would have a 1sec handle, and as long as my dissolve was not more than a 2 sec overlap I would be fine? Or am I way off on that...
If that is what they are then I have plenty of time between the start/end and the IP/OP. In some cases I am using 5 seconds in the middle of a 2 min clip. The only time that it happen with dissolves is when it is being played in a 30fps sequence. If it is a 60fps sequence it does it all the time with no dissolves...
I have a 720p60 sequence and each of the clips that I used I clicked on the footage file in my scene bin and went to "Interpret Footage" and then "Assume frame Rate" and changed it to 30
Don't do that. Interpret and edit the clips as shot in a matching sequence. Export the finished edit to whatever format you need.
I know that now... Prior to this I have done it quite a bit for my slomo with 60p footage with no problems. I just hope that no one else brings any back for other work.
For the time being I just took a copy of the prewed that I already had a Blu Ray and played it composite out of the bluray play into premiere and I am using this to make them a Standard DVD to get by with until I get back from vacation...
if I had a clip that was 10;00 long and I set an IP at 01;00 then I would have a 1sec handle, and as long as my dissolve was not more than a 2 sec overlap I would be fine?
That is very close. The only issue is with the 02 sec. Transition, and your example. To be 100% perfect, you would want 02 sec. of Handles. Now, the Cross-Dissolve is essentially adjusting the Opacity of Clip 1 from 100% to zero, and adjusting the Opacity of Clip 2 from zero to 100%. One could possibly get by with your example, but would really want to have adequate Handles for the entire Transition so that even at very low Opacity, Frames from another scene before/after the IP, or OP do not show. Even at points up/down the Opacity ramp can be perceived by the eye. The viewer might not know what is wrong, just that something is wrong. Otherwise, you've got Handles down. Now, Dip-to-Black works a bit more closely to your example.
Good luck, and hope that others can cure the 60i issues.
I am responding here to your private message. Perhaps I am repeating what others said here, but oh well.
The idea of using interpret footage is a neat one but not what I would recommend with Premiere Pro. In CS3, about the only really cool feature we added (besides porting to the Mac) was the time remapping feature which offered superior slomo. So, for future projects, I would definitely use the time remapping feature instead of Interpret Footage command to get your 50% slomo
That being said, I'd like to see if I can reproduce this. Is it possible you can post a 720p60 clip somewhere to see if I can reproduce? I don't know that this would be something that the engineers would rush to 'fix' because they might argue the point, but I'd definitely like to submit if I understand your problem correctly.
Let me know if I'm off base here at all.
I am out of the office until next week, but if you can tell me where I can upload one too I would be happy to get you a clip...
