I use a tiny Digital Video Recorder to recorder videos of me riding my motorcycle. I have the DVR connected to a bullet camera which is mounted on my motorcycle. The recorder puts the video footage on a SD memory card in MPEG4/AVI format (17fps). I put these files into adobe Premiere Pro and tried cutting them up to make a video, but when I play it back its very choppy and sometimes the program locks up. The video runs smooth in windows media play and the adobe source window. Its gets choppy when i cut a piece out and place it in the sequence. Then play it back in them monitor. Should I convert the files to some other format, then edit them? Your help is much appreicated.
P.s. sorry if this is the wrong forum section for this.
