I'm having some trouble with Premiere Pro CS5, in which the files it creates come out jerky / choppy.
How did you establish that? On a settop BR player, connected to a HD TV?
Is your source material really 23.97 FPS or is it wrapped in a 60i format?
Have you considered field reversal? Anything Matrox in your system?
Other relevant details to share?
I'm playing the video back on the same computer used to encode it. The problem is definitely not the computer, as other encodes I've done can be played back fine, and I've also tried different computers. The audio doesn't stutter at all, and the video never loses sync. Rather, all the action is just really jerky.
My source material is indeed 23.976fps wrapped in a 60i container.
No idea what field reversal is. Nothing Matrox in my system.
More details about the video itself; the video is a two act play. Act two was encoded with CS4 using the same settings, and came out just fine, with very fluid motion. Act one was also encoded with CS4, and this came out fine, but for other reasons I can't use this copy (screwed up the bitrate, but the copy visually looks fine), and the computer running CS4 no longer has it. The camera never stopped rolling during the two-act play, so the video parts should be indistinguishable for a computer.
