Hi, 

Im new to im fairly new to premier pro and im having a few issues. My main problem is that im using video clips filmed on an iphone 7 for the first time so firstly im not sure if I needed to change any setting as I usually edit using clips from a sony camera. Secondly im using proxies to edit faster because the lagging was unreal! This seems to work fine but when I turn the proxy toggle off the positioning of my edits change, clips repeat throughout and doent show any edits made to entire sequence. Could someone please help bur please be patient with me as im new to editing and still learing.

 

Thank you

Please use the free MediaInfo and post a screenshot the properties of your media in tree view:

Many users are having issues with VFR. If the file is variable frame rate, use Hand brake to convert to constant frame rate:

Here is a tutorial:

Phone footage is usually variable framerate and making proxies from those file can cause issues as you have encountered.

The footage that contains variable framerate convert to constant framerate with Handbrake before bringing into Premiere then make proxies if needed.

no.  once you've converted the source media to constant frame rate, you can "unlink" the original footage within premiere and relink to the constant frame footage.  It's possible that you may need to adjust an edit here and there by a frame.

there are a couple of ways.  select the camera original in the bin in premiere, control click and choose ... wait for it...  "unlink media"  and then after it's unlinked...  wait for it...  link media.  

These contextual menus are very powerful and worth doing some exploring throughout the premiere interface...    Let  us know if you have any issues with this workflow.  I'd suggest doing one clip to see if you get the expected results.  Everyonce in a while I may be wrong...
