I have opened a video in a new Project in Premiere Pro CS4 and the Frame rate is 25 Frames per second.
The Audio of this avi file is working fine, but the video part is running extremely slow. In fact, it barely moves at all.
As the audio runs it takes 4 seconds for the first frame of video to appear and another 4 seconds for the next frame, and so on...
Here is the information/properties of the avi files I am trying to use -
Frame Width - 640
Frame Height - 352
Data Rate - 9 kbps
Total Bitrate - 138 kbps
Frame Rate - 25 frames/second
File Size - Between 346 and 350 Mb
Audio - 128 kbps
I have used Windows Movie Maker to create Fan Videos from the same TV Show episodes I am currently trying to use and it runs fine. It runs on default settings and as I said, works fine.
Also, the completed Movie Maker videos run fine in Premiere Pro as well - these have different settings to the original episodes, but their frame rate is still 25 f/s.
Could it just be that I am not creating a project with the correct settings when I begin??
I have only just bought the Adobe Creative Suite Production Premium so I am not really that familiar with Premiere Pro, although I have watched many Tutorials on Lynda.com and hey have helped in teching me how to use it, I cant find anything to say why my video is running the way it is.
I am running a 32 Bit - Windows Vista,
4 GB RAM,
500 GB Hard-Drive,
ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro Graphics Card
Core 2 Duo 2.83 GHz Processor
Please help... I need the answer A.S.A.P!!!
That kind of material is better used with WMM. PR works best with material you shot yourself on a video camera, like DV, HDV, P2, AVCHD, XDCAM etc. Second problem is that your system does not meet minimum requirements. At least a dedicated hard disk is needed.
