Hi there ! After hours of going totally crazy and threatening my computer of throwing it through the window, I tought I might as well go search for help here.
I've been using Premiere Pro for a while now, and, without saying I know the program perfectly, I think I am able to use it fine.
Yet, I started yesterday a new project, using videos filmed with my samsung video camera, size 1920x1080, mp4, 50 f/s.
First curious thing that happens : when importing one of the videos in my project (HDV 1080p25 at first, but I then tried nearly everything), it turned from a 16:9 size to 4:3 size, along with the frame rate reduced to 13 f/s.
Okay. Strangely, the other videos were the right size and frame rate. I decided to act like it was nothing.
Then, after two hours of video editing (and regular saving), I made a wrong manipulation and the program crashed. It was okay since I had saved.
I load my project but Premiere proudly tells me that, I quote "Premiere unexpectedly closed". Well, why not. I then load a previous save, and happily see that all my videos are now not only 4:3,
but also have a frame rate that goes from 13 f/s to 0,95 f/s !
No matter what I tried, it didn't change.
I wondered if maybe the mp4 format was the problem. I then converted my videos to AVI. It was even worse, since the sound was working but the video was frozen, even after rendering !
I then tried with Sony Vegas 9, but when I saw that, in order to render a 30 seconds video, it announced ........ more than 2 hours, I stopped.
I don't know what's wrong. Maybe my videos are the problem, but nothing says they're corrupted, and all my video players read them perfectly. Also, it isn't the first time I create a video with this camera, so I am totally lost.I sincerely hope that someone will understand the problem... If any more information is needed, just tell me !
Thanks a lot, Mayuri. (sorry, I know that post was quite long)
