Activity Forums Adobe Premiere Pro Audio Conforming and Speed Problems

  • Audio Conforming and Speed Problems

    Posted by Grand Admiral on April 25, 2005 at 1:55 pm

    Ok I just completed a series of interviews shot on mini dv.
    The interviews were shot from two angles using two camera.
    Each tape contains roughly 4 mins of interviews.
    I transfered each interview one by one with little problems.
    There has been no problems up until now.
    For some reason I am getting these two problems after transfering interviews from both tapes. Once I import them into Premiere I get one of two problems.
    Either I Premiere starts conforming the audio and gets to the end and becomes unresponsive OR the audio and video speed for some reason speed up, repeat a few seconds of itself and continues at a faster speed.
    No effects have been applied (starting from stratch). I have even retransfered the files again from the source, which places normally on camera and plays normally outside of premiere.

    Any idea as to what is happening?

    Try using a drive other than your system drive for the CFA files (Preferences).

    This is what I tried based of Adobe’s web site

    Uninstalled and reinstalled it to another drive (have 3 hard drives)
    Move the source interviews to another drive
    Rerecorded the interviews to another drive
    Hit shift(and or shift+Ctrl) while clicking on the program icon to reinitiaize the prefrence file (as it might have been corrupted during a lock up).

    None of these options worked…however I did find out something wierd.
    For some reason the audio is set to 32khz however when I import it, the program converts at least 1 of the interviews POV to 44khz, yet the other one remains the same speed (32khz). A work around to this is to load it into Sound Forge and just export the audio into a sepreate WAV file and the video into another sepreate video file with the exception that the sound is muted.

    Importing these two files like this skips the audio conforming (Tricks Premiere)and I am able to do my edits from there. This is a temporary work around until I can figure out how to properly do this.

    Any other insights as to what is happening?

    What sound card are you using? Try updating drivers. Look into “Audio Hardware” settings in Preferences.

    Hey mike

    I just completed processing two more interviews last night and they imported into Premiere without a problem.. I really don’t know what was going on with those two files. I have updated my drivers. My sound card is the old Sound Blaster 5.1 Platium card from like 5 years ago. At this time I see no point in upgrading since I am listening to my music/audio through my headphones..unless I have to upgrade because of issues with any adobe products.
