    MegaNewb: Can only play a tiny fraction of a clip. Why?

      Hi all!

       

      I'm in my first hour on PPro so I hope you'll go easy... :-)

       

      I'm using a Mac with Snow Leopard...

       

      I have figured out how to import my various clips into my project. The problem is that I can't play a clip in its entirety.

       

      When I hit the play button in either the Program or the Source panels, PPro only plays about a tenth of a second of my clip! If I pres play again it plays a *slightly* longer piece, maybe half a second. If I press play a third time I get maybe a second. The fourth press gets me tenth of a second again.

       

      And so it loops. The same thing happens if I use the space-bar or the L key.

       

      What am I doing wrong? :-)

       

      Thanks!

       

      Eric.
