So, I'm having major problems editing. I can import fine, and edit fine, but any clips I play in Premiere Pro are playing in fast forward with choppy audio. I've looked online, but it's really hard to find any results when the issue has to do with speed, all I get back are "How to speed up or slow down clips" but the clips are fine, after export things play normally, it's the actual Premiere Pro player that is the issue. The only people I've seen with this issue online seem to have fixed it in the Audio Hardware preferences, but none of them actually say what they did to fix it, and I haven't found anything in it that fixed it. (Switching from MME to ASIO seemed to fix the play speed, but then I had no audio at all)
My computer should have zero issues running... anything.
AMD A10-7700k Radeon R7, 10 compute cores 4C+6G 3.40GHZ
AMD Radeon R9 380 4GB
32 gigs of Ram
I really need to figure this out, video editing is a major part of my school assignments. Anyone have any suggestions. I've tried everything I can find.
Clean out media cache. Rename folder the footage is in and make a new project. Import again.
See if that will work.
I was going to make a thread with the same issue but I stumbled upon this. I've cleaned out my media cache, renamed the folder with the footage, started a new project, and no avail. I'm running a Mac Pro (Late 2013) on OS.X Yosemite 10.10.5, Dual AMD FirePro D500 3GB, 32GB RAM, 3.5 GHz Intel 6-Core Xeon X5. I'm running the latest update of CC 2015, with fully updated drivers.
My video in question is
Type: QuickTime Movie (Apple ProRes 422HQ)
File Size: 131.82 GB
Image Size: 1280 x 720
Frame Rate: 59.94
Source Audio Format: 48000 Hz - 24 bit - Mono
Project Audio Format: 48000 Hz - 32 bit floating point - Mono
Total Duration: 01:25:17:26
Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.0
Now the issue I'm having is the same where the video plays perfectly fine in every other program outside of Adobe (QuickTime Player, VLC, etc) but when I import it, the images are fast-forwarded while the audio is proceeding at normal speed with the timeline. If I could speed-ramp the video portion without extending the duration, I would, but after export, the video is half-speed of the original while the audio is progressing normally. I need to see the actual frames I'm trying to edit.
At first, I thought this was a variable frame rate issue, but even after throwing the video in Handbrake, the issue persists. I'm all out of ideas, and clients are growing more frustrated by the day.
Is the clip interpreted correctly?
59,94 fps? duration 1.5 hour?
In a matching sequence?
Yes. It's the length of one of the events I film on a daily basis. We shoot on Panasonic HPX 170s at 60fps but record using AJA KiPro hard disks at that 720p, 60fps ProRes 422 HQ setting. We've been using this since January with no problems until now.
Something must have gone haywire.
Have you tried the shift+alt while opening Premiere?
Next thing on the list would be re-installing?
Yes, I've tried the shift+alt while opening, and I just reinstalled, both methods have not helped. I do agree that something has gone haywire as I've never seen this on my Windows machine at home, nor have I seen this in older versions of CC.
Both Trend Micro and Homeland Security have warned users to uninstall QuickTime from their Windows machines.
Since ProRes requires QuickTime to work on Windows, you might want to rethink shooting in ProRes on future shoots. Since the AJA unit records only ProRes, that means you stop using that unit until AJA comes up with some non-QuickTime options.
I don't know that this has anything to do with the issue you're experiencing, but it's good data to have. And whenever someone is having a problem and QuickTime is involved, my first thought it to take QuickTime out of the equation entirely. Uninstall it from the machine, and try a test with different media.
Don't know if you found a fix for this or not, but the solution my boss and I found was to go into the Preferences Edit>Preferences>Audio Hardware and change the default input from Digital Audio S/PDIF High definition audio device and change it to none. For some reason that fixed it for us.
OMG!!! It worked. Thanks! I was like crying! I was finding solution for month and half! Thank You Again!
Thanks! This worked for me. I've been trying to figure this out too. I made this adjustment and it is good now.
worked perfectly for me too, thanks.
I have tried this so many times as it seems to be the solution for everyone but when I go to the audio hardware settings I don't have the option of selecting no input. I only get inbuilt microphone or display port. I am freaking out client needs film and I can't export because it's in fast forward
Fantastic! This worked for me too! Thanks.
Thanks. It worked for me.
Never in my wildest dreams I would have imagined that this could be a solution. While I am happy to fixed it, I am still scratching my head as to what is the connection!!
Also wondering how you stumbled upon this fix.
I had Microphone Blue Snowball as my input device. As suggested by you, I reset it to 'No Input' option. My clip then played in normal speed.
Not content with this, I then re-selected the input device back to 'Microphone Blue Snowball'. I then played back the clip again. It again played at fast forward manner.
Then I physically 'unplugged' the Microphone Blue Snowball cable from my PC. The input device in the PP was still showing as Microphone Blue Snowball. I then played back the clip. And then it played at NORMAL speed!
I then again plugged in the cable from my Microphone Blue Snowball cable to my PC. The input device in PP was continuing to show Microphone Blue Snowball. I then played the clip. And voila.. It played at NORMAL speed.
Final outcome =>
I am still having a somewhat same audio hardware input preferences as before while my clip is now playing at normal speed - albeit through the process of unplugging the wire and plugging it in.
Thanks for the tip, it is a good workaround for now. Hopefully Adobe will this soon.
Thank you very much! You saved my day!
Thank you again! still having stupid issues like this. someting new to add to this. it shows my mic and speakers as "not working" even though there is nothing wrong. this is after reintalling and everything.
Exactly my case. Thanks for the solution!
Thank you so much, this saved me a TON of time. I really apreciate it
Oh my goodness!!!! This worked like magic! I've been trying to fix my premiere pro for almost a month now. Thank you so much!
4 years (and possibly four versions) later this fixed my issue! Thank you for saving my sanity!
solution for me too...
4 years later.
Good job Adobe! (not...)
I made an account to say thank you. You are a life saver!
