Problem with using Pana FZ-30 video clips in Premiere

    Using the default settings (std 32 kHz, 12/16 bit) in my old Premiere 6.0
    program I have successfully used both Sony camcorder (TRV-17) video and
    Canon S1 video clips in shows. However, when I use FZ-30 clips there is a
    very high pitched and annoying squeal on top of the audio. Has anybody else
    experienced this and did you find a way to deal with it?

  2. Try 48KHz/16bit. 32KHz/12 bit is a low-end format for recording in
    four-track mode. The new camera is probably recording in high-quality
    two-track mode and something is sample-rate converting (badly!) in

    If for some reason you want to stick with low quality soud in your
    projects, there's a sample-rate conversion quality setting in one of
    the Premiere audio preferences screens - set it to 'best'.

    Thanks for your suggestion. You've got me looking in the right area now.
    Strangely enough, though, the problem seems to be that the FZ30's movies are
    captured in a QuickTime Motion JPEG format that Premiere sees as 8 bit, 8
    kHz mono audio - that in itself may partially account for the tinny, ringing
    sound that is so irritating. I'm going to be shifting to the Premiere
    Elements program soon and may find this file type handled there since the
    program is much newer OR I may have to get the QuickTime program to see if I
    can use it to convert the audio to something more compatible with Premiere.
    Keep up the good work with the Doctor Who programs, my daughter and I are
    long time fans of all the doctors. Thanks, JLT
