Copy link to clipboard
I have a project where I'm breaking up a panel dicussion into clips.
The footage I downloaded was an MKV file which I then converted to Mp4 so I could edit in Premiere.
But the footage is supper choppy. It has the same look as when you speed up a clip and the audio seems a bit delayed.
I'm still fairly new to editing and I've tried to find a solution but so far nothing has worked. I'm thinking maybe it's somthing to do with the frame rate? Any suggestions appreciated.
Try these simple steps for starter
1) Turn off hardware accelerated Decoding in Preferences > Media... (do app restart)
2) go Preferences > Audio Hardware > Default Input => select "No Input"

If nothing above helped, download Handbrake tool and transcode the problem file as CFR (constant framerate)
Thank you for all the suggestions! In the end I used Handbrake to get a constant frame rate.
