Hey - I have a i7 950 @ 3.07 with 12 gigs of ram on windows 7 64bit
My brother was here and shot some stuff and I dragged it to my computer - I don't remember what camera he had - but - the files are not playing nice on the timeline - can't scrub without it locking things up - even at less than full playback - I'm only asking because I'm hoping this is something I'm doing - I don't see the perfect project preset - but I thought the drag to the icon to make a perfect sequence would solve any issues - this is not crucial client footage - but - I would like to be prepared in the event that I get something similiar - I converted them to avi just to do it and that works - but - It would be nice to just work with this acvc stuff native - it plays fine in VLC or the other media players - the sample on the audio is odd - no?- anyway - anybody have a clue what I might be doing wrong - or -is this par for the course with my setup and this format? This has been the only hickup thus far for me with CS5.
TIA - of course points will be awarded.
This source material is weird to say the least. The codec and the sound. If it deviates so much from what is expected, maybe even the New Item icon can not adjust to handle it adequately. Your best bet is to convert it to something editable, like MS DV AVI type 2 with 48 KHz PCM/WAV. Use Google to find a suitable converter.
