    Newbie - Problem with Mixed Format Edits...

    clsimeone Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I have just made the jump from Sony Vegas 8 to Premiere Pro CS5.5 a few days ago and I am having a problem working with mixed format edits.

       

      I have video shot with two HDV cameras and one DSLR.

       

      I created an HDV 1080i sequence and the HDV clips runs great.  When I add the .mov clip to the sequence, the .mov clip slows downs and gets all jittery,.

       

      As an experiment, I created a DSLR 1080p sequence and .mov clip runs great in that sequence.

       

      But now I have two timelines and don't know how to sync them for a multi-cam sequence.

       

      What can I do to resolve this problem and either have all my video clips on the same timeline, or at least be able to sync multiple sequences.

       

      I have thought about converting the .mov to a .m2t file, but I'm not sure what to use to do that and if that is even necessary with Premiere Pro CS5.5.

       

      I hope I stated my probelm clearly as I am very new to video editing.

       

      Thanks!

          So I think I know what is happening and it probably does not have anything to do with mixed formats.

           

          What I have noticed is if the HDV video is track 1 and the .mov video is track 2 and I play the video, I'm assuming Premiere is playing both tracks simultaneously and that is taxing my CPU.

          When I slide track 1 past the end of the clips on track 2 (the .mov file), it plays perfectly.

          I suppose I can use the razor tool to slice up my video, but is there a better way to do this?

           

          I want to sync the clips at a certain point for a multi-cam sequence.

           

          Thanks
