Hey all, okay my problem is as follows: In Premiere 6.5, when I import a clip that I've captured using firewire into my project, when I doulble click it in the project (ie. to open it in clip window), the video plays, but the actual picture remains frozen on the 1st frame. There is no problem with the sound. This only seems to happen in clip window and on left hand window of twin view monitor window - ie clips that are not in the timeline yet. Once I put them in the timeline, they play fine in the right hand window of the monitor window. The weird thing is that if I import a clip that I have captured on analog with my Miro DC30+, it is totally fine and plays everywhere. Help!!! My System spec is as follows: Athlon 700 512Mb RAM nVidia Geforce 2 GTS Miro DC30+ Adobe Premiere 6.5 Sonic DVD-it 5 Windows XP SP2 Could it be that I dont have enough RAM or my processor isn't up to the job? Also, I forgot to mention, when the clip is playing (frozen on 1st frame), if I click on somehting else, like a menu or something, it kicks the video forward to the position it has reached then freezes the picture again. Combine this with Premiere tripping over itself every noew and again and it leads me to believe that my spec just isnt up to dealing with DV editing. Should I buy better kit?
