Playing back in a dedicated player is no test of whether footage will edit.
Can you please give us full details of your source footage. The more, the better. If you do not recall the specs. from your 3D program, then the great, free utility, G-SPOT will give you the full details.
Next, please tell us the details of your Project/Sequence settings.
I start a new Proj...

I checked using GSpot. It didnt say I needed anything
Hey there Hunt, Not sure if you can actually help me or not. I was able to take that supplied footage and import it into WINDOWS MOVIE MAKER.. Sure the preview was laggy but at least it didn't stay on one frame. Not to mention It actually EXPORTED.. And the wierd thing is... THAT EXPORTED VIDEO WAS ABLE TO IMPORT INTO PREMIERE.. WHats Going ON!
When i put the source footage into premiere there was no preview, and even when exported it failed. I really need some help here bud.
First let me say that I have been fighting PrPro CS4 for about 4-5 days now, and only just started reading in here to figure out what i could do to "fix" my problem. I was having all sorts of fits with the playback inside of PrPro freezing and then "not responding." I came across all kinds of posts about computers, memory, drivers and settings, operating systems and all of that. It wasn't until some one that is also having struggles stated that they had a USB drive for unrelated storage did the light go on. So I disconnected my 2 USB drives (one a 250GB desktop Thermaltake drive and the other a 320GB WD My Passport) and loaded up a project that had all been rendered useless. VOLA, working like a charm now. Just like old times, I love my PrPro CS4, where about 2 hours ago I was ready to start working on my resume...lol
Bottom line, don't leave a USB drive hooked up.
