OK, I know everyone's eyes are rolling as I have seen multiple posts on multiple boards asking why .mts files from Panasonic P2 and AVCHD cameras are not playing smoothly in Premiere CS 5.5 sequences. I have yet to find an answer, so here we go.
System Specs - Win 7, dual AMD Opteron 2.3Ghz Processors, 32 Gb RAM, NVIDIA Quadro 4000 video card, plenty of space on both the operating and work array (solid state) drives.
In Premiere, the Mercury playback GPU accelleration is on.
My project settings match my footage (drag clip onto new sequence icon, etc.)
Monitor settings are to full.
Software is up to date.
Other file types (.mov, .avi, .mp4) all play flawlessly. It is just the .mts files that gag (video is VERY jerky, audio plays fine) in the sequence. They play fine in the preview monitor.
My system was built to scream....and it does.....with file types other than .mts. I am sure I am missing a setting somewhere, but where?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! This is VERY frustrating! Thanks in advance!
