Really at my wits end with this program.
I'm working on a web series/doc and my three primary sequences are about 1.5 hours each.
I shot on a cheapo Panasonic camera many years ago and it's all in that MTS stream format.
-For some reason I can't comprehend, every single time I open the program, the audio and video for at least a quarter of the clips is suddenly different, does not match. To clairfy, the clips where the audio changes are all from the same media file; in other words, if I have two MTS media files on my harddrive, 0004.MTS and 0005.MTS, all of the clips associated with, say, 0005.MTS in Premiere will have changed audio, (not just some of the clips), while all clips from 0004.MTS will be normal. The only pattern I can detect is that the clip's audio is usually mixed with a clip with the same name, but from a different card dump from a different day.
-Premiere always starts conforming the audio when I open the program - every time.
-This last time probably 50-100 clips do not have corresponding audio, and it's usually different clips, every single time I open the program.
-If I reveal the clip in finder, and preview it, the audio is correct. If I import it into premiere, it's wrong.
-The only fix is to copy the clip in the finder folder, rename it and then import it into Premiere - then the audio will match correctly.
-Then I get to start my daily overcutting of 50 to 100 clips. Thanks Premiere.
-Then when I quit the program and open it again, I get to do it all over again. Except it's different clips.
-I'm sure it's probably the needless and constant audio conforming that it seems compelled to do everytime it's opened (and do wrong, of course).
