I am using Premiere CS4 and Sony PMW EX1 camera with SXS memory cards to record video clips.
I get jerky for few seconds and freezing video and with uninterrupted audio When I grab and drop video clips from browser to Sequence window. This happens when I play on Monitor or on time line. No jerky video observed when I play clips recorded on SXS cards on Television(Panasonic Plasma 50") Playing audio ok.
Samething happened on Premiere Pro 1.5 version also.
Video quality set on the Camera and CS4 for HD, 1080i and 25fps for PAL system
My system is a Dell Dimension 8400, .8GHz processor, 2GB DDR2 RAM, closer 1TB HDD capacity on SATA.
I would appreciate your help and any suggestions.
The system looks underpowered to me. 2 GB RAM is absolute minimum requirements, but then Adobe is always very optimistic. And your processor is very meagre too. The disk space may not be an immediate problem, unless we are talking about a single physical disk or disks running at less than 7200 RPM.
