  • Choppy and inconsistent audio in HD timeline

    New MacPro 2 X 2.93 GHz 6-Core intel Xeon
    12GBs Ram
    Nvidia Quadro 4000 2048 MB video card
    Software 10.7.2
    Video Card: Kona 3 with 9.0.3 driver & 9.01 premier plugin
    Videodrive: 7200 RPM 2 TB internal (not the system drive) remaining space about 750 GB
    Adobe CS 5.5 software

    I just switched from FCP 7 to CS5.5 including a new computer which I perceive is optimized for CS 5.5. In playback my audio is choppy and dropping out some of the time, then if I stop and start the payback it will be fine, or sometimes there is no audio. doesn’t seem to be any consistencey in what will happen the next time I start playback. On the timeline is a 1080i ProRes file I finished in FCP 7, then imported the video & audio file to Premier to make a couple of last minute changes. Program is 50 minutes long. I have the sequence setup as Kona 1080i compressed. I imagine I have missed something very basic here, but don’t have a clue what it could be. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thx…Jim Watt

    I just had this same problem – sounds would drop out at a specific point, I would delete and re-drag the audio file into the timeline, it might seem ok, or it would just drop out at a different point. Attempting to start the playhead anywhere but the beginning would cause a random part of the file to play, not the part the playhead was actually on.

    It was an .aiff file and when I brought in an .mp3 version instead, there were no more problems.
