But track mattes are stationary, are they not? If the hands are moving, can he still use a track matte effectively?

(not trying to be contradictory -- just curious if there is a way to animate track mattes in Premiere)

32 bit will have it's good uses but I feel that it should be an option. Convert everything to 16 bit as a standard (if you were importing a 12 bit mp3 or the like) if you want but only do 32 if the editor chooses so and is going to need it.

i have problem with the sound too, but i think my problem is quite different, and i need help...thanks

the thing is, my computer reboot automatically when i was dealing with a 2 mins footage on premiere pro, then when i went back to premiere pro after the reboot, i continued with my work, but there is no sound anymore (it works fine in every other programs, even my premier6.5), then i tried to rendered the short clip to wmv, and it reboot again in the middle of the rendering, then after it reboot, i tried to render the wmv again and it worked, and i checked the wmv, the sound is there, but i dunno why, i am just no longer able to play sound on premiere pro anymore. i checked the setting u mentioned here above, but didnt seem to help much... anyone?

Mpeg TS files in Premiere Pro
Much to my surprise after installing the downloadable demo version of Main Concepts Main Actor edit programme I found I was able to import TS files into premiere pro simply by renaming them as .mpg. While I cannot play the files smoothly (I am running dual Athalon MPs at 2.6ghz) it is handy to be able to export and convert files via premiere. Have not tried after effects yet.

Interesting, my guess is that any directshow compatable mpeg2 decoder that recognizes transport streams would make it possible to bring mpeg2 into Premiere, has anyone tried Al's rename method after installing the $20 Elecard player? http://www.moonlight.co.il/down_eval.htm How about with Vegas and Premiere on the same machine?
How much does Main Actor cost?

With what equipment was the file captured? If I'm not mistaken
analog captures can have a different resolution then a DV "capture".
Also, Premiere is probably seeing the footage at the wrong aspect
ratio, unless it was captured at another resolution.

Some number might help us cracking your problem.

Sounds like the audio encoder for the file format you have chosen
is responsible for this, please tell us:

1) the audio encoder you are using when exporting

2) the settings (bitrate, frequency, bits etc. etc.)

Thanks, i'll try to be as detailed as possible.
First, I did find a solution, but it is not ideal. If I output the timeline as an uncompressed file and then drop that file into Procoder, it works fine. But i don't want the extra step.

I also had interlacing problems with Premiere 6.5 outputting to the Procoder plugin. It looked more like a field order problem. No setting would have a effect. If i output to DV or Uncompressed first, no problem. This wierd artifacting only shows up when the clip is a DV quicktime from Final Cut.

The clips in question this time around were most likely captured either from cable tv directly onto a dv deck or from VHS through a Canopus analog->DV box.
If i drop the quicktime clip into Procoder it works fine. It's only going directly from Premiere to Mpeg2 that it screws up. I've tried what seems like every setting that would have an effect in Premiere pro and Premiere 6.5.

I've had similar problems with Premiere in the past and simply
worked around them and now switched to Vegas. Can you tell
me what the resolution is of the analog file? (NOT the DV files).

For example. Analog PAL is often captured at 768 x 576 instead
of the standard DV PAL resolution of 720 x 576.

But it sounds like you've found the "only" solution...

I was into Linux earlier this year, and my roommate and I tried out Suze Linux with some success. It came with Main Actor, but I think it was a "junior" edition.

Try this out.


John Perkins December 24th, 2003 02:41 AM

The projects were NTSC DV 720x480.
I never really had analog capture files. All the footage was brought to the computer world with some form of DV hardware.

It was a television show originally shot on film. I guess it is possible it could have something to do with the 24 to 29.97 pulldown. It works fine unless i export to an encoder.
It's still a Premiere problem.
I guess i should try Vegas.
