Rendering to CF avi's in Premiere CS4
Whatever setting i choose in the CF codec (NeoScene) the avi (1440x1080) turns black after a few seconds.
Sometimes i get lucky and it does the whole sequence (Dec: rgb. Enc:ITU, High HD, interlaced).
By the way what are the best settings.

I am having the same problem. I import converted Cineform files, edit, trim etc no problem. Vers 1.2 works good.

I then want to export my entire timeline as one CF AVI file for archiving etc. I use export>media>Microsoft AVI>Video>CineForm HD Coded 4.x

I found that if the exported file is UNDER 2gigabytes, it works ok. If the exported file is over 2gb, it does not play correctly in premiere. I noiced it does not show that the file has any audio if it is over 2gb in size.

I am on Vista x64 8mb Ram, Premiere CS4 4.0.1, NeoScene 1.2

Adobe VFW AVI exporters are limited to 2GB, it is a long exiting Adobe bug/limitation.

Do you have an answer for my question because my avi's are smaller than 2 gig?

Never mind i solved it. Added a Magic Bullet filter, rendered the whole timeline to a CF avi, 3,3 gig, no black.

David Newman April 13th, 2009 03:00 PM

Contact support. Andy above and myself can confirm that under 2GB should be working fine.

Andy Urtusuastegui April 13th, 2009 09:18 PM

Ann, are you saying you exported a 3.3gb file and it play ok, with sound and video in Premiere?

Which filter?

Yes i rendered an over 5 minute 3.3 gig large CF avi with stereo audio and no black parts. Plays perfectly in the timeline.
Nested the timeline and added just the Vignette from Magic Bullet Looks.
Tried Fast Blur (no tweak) in Premiere (we used to do that in Premiere 6.5 for some reason) but that did not work.
So i believe MB adds something that gets the avi proberly rendered, besides i do not believe there is a 2 gig limitation on Adobes VFW.

Just did another test: 10 minutes timeline with MB and audio rendered to a 7.7 gig CF avi. Runs perfectly. Without MB its black.

Andy Urtusuastegui April 14th, 2009 04:49 PM

Ann, if I understand, if you try to export the timeline as a CF avi, and do not add any magic bullet effects, then the CF avi does NOT play correctly.

Also, what Product of MB do you have? I see they have different ones.

Yes that is what i am saying, it sounds weird but that is what i am experiencing.
Magic Bullet Looks 1.2.
