Hi, I'm stuck here so if anybody more saavy could help that'd be fantastic!
I have some 4K / 60fps footage shot with my GH5. First I interpret it as 24 fps, and then I create 720p proxies so I can start editing. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but my clips end up having an audio waveform only up to a certain point (I ditch the audio anyway) beyond which the clip won't play. It will stay still as if it was a picture.
BTW I noticed my proxies don't play with either quicktime or VLC outside of premiere pro. Shouldn't they be able to like a simple 720p footage?
This is how my clip looks like in the timeline, after where the audio waveform stops the clip won't play anymore:
Thanks in advance to anyone that can help!
Premiere's built-in proxy process doesn't tend to work well with interpreted footage unfortunately. I think that's the problem here. There was an instruction set some time ago for creating proxies for modded time clips ... here ...
I haven't tried it in a while, but would suggest this as a possible fix.
1. Interpret footage in premiere.
2. right click in premiere and "create proxies"
3. When they populate in media encoder hit red "STOP" right away on top right corner
4. Highlight the clip that began to encode and right click and "Reset Status"
5. Delete that partial clip in the finder
6. Highlight all the clips in encoder and right click and interpret them as you did in premier and start the encode
7. Make sure you add the toggle proxies button and you are good to go
Thank you very much for answering me.
That looks like the same method as Neil's and it solved my problem.
Thank you guys so much!
I wish I could mark as solved or close the topic but apparently I can't. So I just added (SOLVED) to the title.
Neil, you have no idea how grateful I am that you took the time to read me and answer me with the solution.
I just tried one of my new proxies I did over night with your method and it's pefectly fine.
You solved my problem. Thank you sooooo much!!
Always happy to help, as others here and elsewhere have done for me so many, many times when I desperately needed HELP.
Just had the same problem, which is weird because usually it works fine. But yeah, it's definitely the fact that you interpreted your footage. Just going back into the project panel, highlighting all clips, right click --> modify --> interpret footage --> (under frame rate) click on use frame rate from file. That's the quick fix if you have over 400GB of footage and you don't have time to re-create proxies the right way.
So the latest workaround I've found to work quiet well.
- Create the proxies using the ProRes preset from Premiere.
- Remove the clips from the project.
- Import the proxies instead.
- Interpret the footage as desired.
- Relink original media.
I don't know why, but in this way, the interpretation you apply will reflect on both the proxy and original media.
