    I was in Premiere last night, farting around with some home video clips
    that I had captured as MPGs before I knew better.
    We all know that MPGs don't work well in Priemere. Gets gets so choppy
    and the video/sound sync goes so far out that it makes MPGs almost
    impossible to
    edit. I like Priemere and I didn't want to switch to another program.
    I also didn't want to lose edit capability on these old MPGs.
    I discovered that if you bring the MPGs into Priemere and put them on
    the timeline
    you can export this whole mess as an AVI. Then start a new project and
    import this new AVI, stick it on the timeline and edit away. It works
    great.
    Just a useless bit of info that most of you probably already knew.

    Also, but not tested:

    Write an Avisynth script

    DirectShowSource("TheClip.mpg")

    and make it into a pseudo-avi with Link2 (tiny, and fast to do). Then
    import this Avi into Premiere.
