    Raw Video Plays for only 1 Second in Premiere CS5 Viewer


      I am on an iMac, OS X 10.6.8, 2.93 GHz Intel Core i7, 8 GB memory.


      I'm trying to use Premiere CS5 (full version), which I'm new to, to edit some raw video that was shot. I import the file (.mov file 590.1mb) by double clicking, then I drag that file into the viewer window.


      I click the play button and the first time it plays for about a second, then anytime after that it plays for less. If I hold down the right arrow key it plays but is extremely choppy.


      I have searched for solutions (http://forums.adobe.com/thread/642962?tstart=0) and I found a suggestion of updating my drivers by doing a Software Update, after a restart, that did not work. Then I found a suggestion of trying to replicate the same problem after logging in as a Root User but I still have the same issue under the Root User.


      I tried doing my editing in Final Cut Express and it worked fine, but because it's Express it's a little limiting. I figured a full pro version of Premiere would be better.


      Is there any one else out there with other suggestions?


      Any help would be greatly appreciated!
