    When I bring in Canon DSLR media into a project, I cannot access it right
    away. I see in the far lower right corner on the timeline it says
    CONFORMING, and goes through all the clip names.

    What’s happening here?

    Like FCP or ProTools, audio needs to be all in the same bit and sample rate in order to be able to mixed together. Whereas FCP would wait until you wanted to play a timeline and then render the audio needed (remember the BEEP BEEP BEEP?), Adobe Premiere (like ProTools) just conforms all audio to the same, 48khz, 32-bit filetype upon import so you don’t have to wait when you want to play it back in the timeline.

    There’s plenty of information about this out there, if you need more just search the forums.

    Ah…I guess I failed my mantra of “search the forum first.”
