First time poster; VERY new with the Adobe Suite of tools and have really been learning through playing around and watching Youtube tutorials.
I'm creating a video on Premier using a bunch of chopped AVI captured PS3 footage. I went into After Effects to make an intro and a few little 2 second add-in clips. I can't remember the settings for the clips, but the bottom line was that when I render the AVI footage and then pull the clips into my Premier work, it either gives me a red bar across the timeline or it shows the clip garbled and messed up, usually locking up my computer shortly after. The intro clip I did seems to work fine and there have been no issues, it's just those two damn two second clips that have brought me to a standstill.
I'm sure this is no big deal and is an easy formatting issue, but again, I'm just making this up as I go a lot of the time. Thanks for all your help!
It is indeed a format issue. Use G-Spot to determine what the codec is inside that AVI then use Google to find a suitable converter. You need to convert from whatever you have into MS DV AVI type2 and PCM/WAV stereo 48 KHz sound.
Yuppers, that did it. Thank you very much!
