Can you give us some more info please?
- I'd start with the system's specs., just in case there is something there, say in the I/O.
- Then, I'd give the details of the Assets, that you are working with. More detail will be better.
- Last, I'd give a description of the Sequence, and what has been done there.
Hopefully, someone will see problem areas, that you can address.
MacBook pro 4GB ram 64bit, 256 ram video card Ati raden X1600, Lion 10.7.1
I work with 1080i AVCHD 25fps from a panasonic DSLR 44khz stereo sound
The sequences are simple nothing advance except from some transitions, they are 4 sequences combine in one more final.
That explains it. Four sequences that all need to be read from the same hard disk, which is below minimum specs anyway, of a very difficult codec, AVCHD, and of course a MBP is way underspecced for that kind of editing. Add the limitations of the OS, the very limited memory, the - for video - non-standard audio and a non-accelerated video card and it is no wonder you have problems.
Ok I understand that I have an old machine that's why I am getting crappy playback and slow render but I don't understand why mess up with the project. Moves the timeline of the sound or cut video clip by it self or adding sound that is cut out from the clip....
I don't think that is hardware problem!
Did you get any specific error messages that you can list here? I've gotten the 'Serious error has occurred that requires Adobe Premiere Pro to shut down' error message a number of times. Information like that will help with troubleshooting.
No error messages, only messup my editing without warrnings.
Is your MBP dual core or quad? Is your internal drive 5400 or have you upgraded it to 7200? Did you start the project in Lion or Snow Leopard and then
upgrade? Did you do anything to your computer, upgrade anything between the last time you worked on it and the time you opened it with the problems?
When was the last time you repaired permissions? Are you doing it all on one drive?
Is dual core, and the HDD is at 7200prm. I didn't upgrade the hardware neder the software during all this time. I will try to repair disk permissions, I hope I will get any solution with that.
Disk permissions didn't solve my problem. :-(
But thank you for your time.
Do you have any After Effects compositions in your project that are connected to Premiere Pro by Dynamic Link?
Did you move any of the AVCHD file folders, or any of the files inside of those folders?
Here is a possible quick fix: for the clips that are out of place, try taking them offline and then immediately relinking them.
Yes I used to have dynamic links clips with after effects and audition but I export the new clips from after effects and I replace them (I do that for speed reasons), so write now there isn't any active dynamic link.
Never and I mean never I delete or move any of my original AVCHD clips or folders.
I tried to make them offline and then back to relink them but still the same problem.
Thank you as well for your time.
