i imported clips from a sony HD camcorder. They are in my timeline and they have the red line above them. Normally I just hit enter and they render for smooth playback, but now they are not rendering when i press enter. or several of the clips will render only 60 frames, any suggestions?
Welcome to the forum.
It sounds like you have limited the area of the Timeline that Renders with the WAB (Work Area Bar). If so, the easiest way to reset it to the full Timeline is to hit the \ (Backslash key) to zoom to a full view of the Timeline. Then, look just below the Timeline Ruler, for the WAB, and in its middle, there is a little square - Dbl-click on that to expand.
Here is a look at the WAB in PrE 4.0, but PrE 9 will look almost exactly the same:
Also, remember that if you do not have a red line about the Clip(s), there will be no Rendering. If there is a green line, or no line, then no Rendering.
Good luck, and hope that this helps,
