      Im trying to edit some .mov H264 footage in premioere CS5 but playback in Premiere is always very pixelated. I had to convert the footage using mpeg stream so the footage would work with my pc but playback in Quicktime is fine. Also when I export the footage playback is fine. I cant edit the footage because I can hardly makeout whats going on. If I click propertys in Premiere on the clips im having problems with I get

      As you can see Premiere thinks itss MPEG. Could this be the problem? How do I fix this?
