What is your Project Preset?
If you Right-click on the Clips in the Project Panel, and choose Properties, what is shown for the FPS?
It could be that the FPS flag is not being picked up by PrE, and if that is the case, you should be able to correct that by choosing Interpret Footage and then changing the FPS to 25.
Hope that helps, and good luck,
Yes, that is what the problem was.
Although the video camera on my Nokia N8, mobile was capturing at 25fps,
for some reason once transfered over to PrE9 (via file transfer), the clip was interpreted as 500fps. Once in Interpret Footage I was able to change the fps to 25.
Thanks for the help.
Aspects of a video files, such as FPS, Widescreen (usually determined by the PAR), etc., are usually stored as "flags" in the file's header info. Sometimes, an NLE, like PrE, will just miss those flags. What one is doing with Interpret Footage is forcing to PrE to follow the instructions of that/those missed flag(s).
We often see missed flags where one has converted a file to another format/CODEC, but some devices write them in such a manner that a particular NLE will miss them.
Glad that was the cause, and also the fix.
A smartphone http://events.nokia.com/nokian8/home.html with video will sometimes "tweak" the codec to be able to take video with that hardware
That "other than standard" codec... or the information stored in the file header... would seem to be the problem in your case
At least now you know what to do to get that cell phone video to work
