Welcome to the forum.
First, tell us all about the Source Files, and then the Project Preset. If you are following an online tutorial, please furnish a link, so we can see what they are suggesting.
As a new user, take a look at this ARTICLE on resources for a new PrE user.
Hi Bill my source files orginate from a Canon DSLR. I have an MPEG movie, 81M, 1920x1080 with a frame rate of 29.97. The clip is 13sec. The source audio - 48000HZ compressed sterio. The tutorial is Adobe's classroom in a book...I'll checkout your links
PS, I set the preset to match the source files
- What preset did you use for your project?
- Does the tutorial work if you use the samples provided by Adobe with their Classroom book?
Insanity is hereditary, you get it from your children
I am working with the tutorial files and applying the presets as defined by tutorial. I have also optimised my Mac as efficiently as possible so hopefully that is not an issue. As I was saying the clips play ok in the Organiser window, but not in Premiere.
