    Hi Folks

    I have just taken over a 72minute project that has been edited in Premiere Pro 1.0, and I noticed that all the footage had the red line which indicates that it needs rendering even if no effects were applied to the footage. It puzzled me because I could not find out why it needed rendering, it was not changed in speed and it didn’t have any effect applied to it.

    I started to investigate a bit and found that they had in fact set the project to NTSC when they first started out, while all the footage is PAL and the end result is also supposed to be PAL. Which means that Premiere will convert it to NTSC while editing and then back to PAL when it is exported… What a waste of computing power and picture quality! 🙁

    At first I thought this was an easy problem to fix as I could just change the settings back to PAL, but that’s a no no… the settings are greyed out 🙁

    Does anyone have an idea of something I can do about this? (other than starting to edit the project from scratch with correct settings)

    Regards

    Just import the project into a project with proper settings. The old project will be in a bin in the new one’s project window.

    You can not change the settings, but you can import into a new project with the correct settings.

    Thank you very much! It worked like a charm 🙂

    A very big thank you from both myself and my client/friend. (I am helping them out for free and I was NOT looking forward to spend hours upon hours of extra work because of this)

    Regards
