What codec... and is the video size the same as your project?
I dont really know what codec it is, but yes its the same as my project setting which is 1920x1080p...
I am using Premiere Pro CS5 and I have most recent updated installed, however there is not render required because the line on my time line is not red, but when it get to these animation it gets very choppy and its not watch able... I thought its some think with my graphic card but I worked with all my DSLR camera footage and they work fine and I decided not to use these animation.
Now I imported another animation same size 1920x1080p and its choppy same think I dont really know whats the problem is.
Thank you kindly for any help that can be provided here.
I have Premiere Pro CS5 5.0.3 update 394.4MB 12/7/2010, for my Premiere Pro CS5, I wanted to know as will is there why that I can make my Adobe from CS5 to CS5.5 with out reinstalling all the plugins and so on?
I dont really know what codec it is,
That's your problem. You need to know, if you want an answer.
It may be that the codec is uncompressed or exceeds the capability of your system to play back. Select the clip, right-click and select Properties. Then look for Compressor. That should tell you the codec.

This is all the detial about this clip i am importing to my project...
File Size: 76.4 MB
Image Size: 1920 x 1080
Pixel Depth: 24
Frame Rate: 29.97
Total Duration: 00:00:12:24
Average Data Rate: 6.0 MB / second
Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.0
Created with: Adobe After Effects 9.0.2
Movie contains 1 video track(s), 0 audio track(s) and 0 timecode track(s).
There are 384 frames with a duration of 1/29.97th.
Video track 1:
Duration is 0:00:12:24
Average frame rate is 29.98 fps
Video track 1 contains 1 type(s) of video data:
Video data block #1:
Frame Size = 1920 x 1080
Compressor = JPEG 2000
Quality = Most (5.00)
Now even if its compressed or uncompressed, dosnt my system handle it? is'nt it good enough, and what do I need so that handle it smother.
by the way what is the best software for compassing video like DV, HD, 4K? and if I compasse them would I lose quaility?
Thank you very much
Now, we're getting somewhere. Your codec is JPEG 2000. Data rate is 6 MB/s. That's not too bad of itself. JPEG 2000 is scalable, meaning it can be encoded with a lot of compression or a little. The less the compression, the higher data rate, and the harder it is to play it from a disk.
But, probably what's happening is when you add it as your fourth layer,it's exceeding your single 1TB hard drive's ability to play back all four streams in real-time. You can either render (Preview) your Sequence to a codec that can handle real-time playback (something compressed), or get more drives and/or a RAID for faster disk reads.
So this problem is because of the disk read? that mean I need to get fast disk read... any idea what kind of hard drive is best for HD & 4K.
I'm kind of thinking getting mini G-tech Hard drive....

That drive will work best for video editing compressed HD with the eSATA interface. FW800 would also give you a few HD streams. But, if you use the USB2 or FW400 interface, you're not going to be much better off than using your single drive. That's called a "bottleneck."
Here's what you need to find out:
1. Estimate what the data-rate is for the footage you want to use. There are "data-rate calculators" all over the internet. Use Google.
2. Mulitply that data rate times the number of layers you want to play simultaneously in real-time.
3. Install a drive AND interface combiniation that exceeds the "Sustained Data Transfer Rate" for the number you came up with in #2.
Then, if you drop frames, it's not because of your drive (array); it's due to puny CPU or some other factor.
Some codecs strain the CPU more than others. Long-GOP codecs require more decoding to play back than intraframe codecs. Most DSLR footage is Long-GOP, and some flavors of it take 100% of all eight of the 3GHz cores in my MacPro to play back one stream. 2 or 3 is out of the question, no matter how fast my RAID is.
So, it may be that drive speed isn't your problem... you may have just maxed out your CPU's ability to decode that many streams of video in real-time.
But, if you do the math I just suggested, you can determine whether your drive is the issue.
