Premiere (6.5 and Pro Tryout) will not playback smoothly

    After capturing video from my VX-2000, the playback is very choppy. No
    audio at all. If I move the video manually, you can hear the audio so
    I know that is there. I don't lose any frames on capture, so I don't
    know why the playback isn't working correctly. On another note, on the
    same computer I can use Windows Video capture and it will playback
    just fine. Any thoughts?

    1) Render the work area. (Define your work area and hit <ENTER>)
    2) Choose a lower setting in preview quality. (Right click in the sequence
    monitor and choose QUALITY ---> Draft (or automatic)
    3) Upgrade your computer ;-)

    A clip is not fully processed just because it has been imported and added to
    a sequence. It needs to be rendered - which can be a cpu-demanding task!
    Therefore, the fast soultion is to chance the quality in the sequence

    Wow... the "Render work Area" command works great... :) Thank you for
    your help. My computer does surprisingly well considering it's a
    laptop. It's the best Toshiba on the market so it isn't a slouch, but
    with such slow HD's I thought it wouldn't even capture fast enough.
    Thanks a lot for the reply. Helps a bunch!

  4. Let me guess...
    1) You are viewing the video playback on the computer display.
    2) You are listening to the audio playback through the computer output.
    3) You have the VX-2000 still connected and powered-on.
    4) You are NOT monitoring audio or video out of the VX-2000.

    That is EXACTLY how my computers (3 of them) behave under
    those conditions. Disconnect (or power-off) the VX-2000 to see
    the playback smoothly on the computer screen.

    What does the playback look like when viewing it through the
    analog video/audio output from the VX2000? (Whether rendered
    or not)?
    Different application. Doesn't attempt to play back video/audio
    through the firewire port.

    Note that if you are trying to do any serious evaluation, adjustment,
    etc, of the video, recommended that you do NOT view it on the
    computer screen.
