Did you load all the 18 x 1 hours clips in one project?
No, since this was a 3 camera shoot for starters I just captured 3-4 tapes to see how the workflow is going to work. I want to use the multicam feature to edit. I tried creating a new project and imorting the clips but CS5 "stops respoding". I import the, lets say clip1. Move it to the timeline, scrub up and down the timeline no apparent problem.
Then I import clip2, CS5 stops responding. I have used CS5 to capture and edit standard video with no problems. But this 24F footage is creating starnge anomalies. The computer was just built breand-new 4gb ram with a AMD phenom X2 processor TB's of storage.
I think it is related to the 24F format. I'm going to capture something in standard HDV to see what happens when I add it to the timeline.
It's not a problem with HV40 24p. I use it all the time. Are you sure you are using the right preset?
That camera shoots both native 24p and also 24p in a 60i wrapper.
tclark513 there are only 4 HDV setting in the camera: HDV, PF30, PF24 and 24F. you stated you use the HV40 24p..so which of the 4 formats I listed do you use?
I used the 24F format 'native".
I use native. Pull a clip to the new item icon in the bottom of the project panel and let Premiere make the sequence for you.
