I am new to posting, but not new to editing using Premiere - I use CS3. I am trying to edit a dance recital where I have 8 hours of footage, but everytime I have tried to upload the video, it plays choppy in Premiere, and plays back choppy when I play the captured clip. It plays perfectly fine when played on the camera, (Canon GL1) so it seems it isn't the actual tape, and it's not the camera. I bought a new firewire cable, thinking that might have been the problem, but the exact same thing happened. I also read where maybe the timecode is messed up, so to unclick the "auto detect scenes" button. I tried that and the video is still choppy, sometimes just the audio, but it is very noticeable.
I really have no idea what else I can try now. It sounds like other people have had this problem. What will fix it? Help.
