Have an oddity when importing .jpg stills into the timeline in Prem 6.5. They come in and play OK but some time later they just turn black on the timeline and also in the Project list and it says they are 'off line'. The only way is to import them again into Premeire. This has happened a couple of times with the same files. I hope I've explained this so you can understand. Any ideas and advice please? Pete

use either BMP or TGA or PSD

jpegs are notorious for this , and stills have a max dimension , though off top of head can't remember what it is.

Try Maintain Aspect Ratio switch

I seem to remember reading in a previous thread that Premiere has a bug that can sometimes cause it to behave oddly with jpegs unless the Maintain Aspect Ratio switch (right click the clip on the timeline to access this) is set a certain way. Try changing that might make your jpegs re-appear. Could try a search for this.

Maximum still size is 4000x4000 pixels IIRC.

Yes, that size limitation, and the "vanishing JPEG" has been there since 5.0 to my certain knowledge. It was one of the (many) reasons why I junked Premier.

I have been using BMPs for ages now because of problems with JPEGs, but this is the first time I have heard anything to explain it.

I also find that sound tracks will be more problem free if WAVs. MP3s play alright but a lot of playing with them will sometimes cause out of sync problems.

Pete,
I too had a problem with Prem. and found that I need to install Quicktime for them to play properly.

Most of the sound sync problems will go away if you obey a few simple rules:

1: always keep the sample sample rate fixeed on each audio track. E.g. keep all your 48kHz stuff on one (or more) track(s), all the 44.1kHz on another, 32 on another and so on. That way, the rendering is far simpler and you don't get sync slip.

2: there is no rule #2.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the replies and advice. I got around the problem in the end but all your advice about .jpg and .bmp's in Premiere is filed in my little head for future referance. I note what you also say about music files also.

We learn a little something every day! Can someone give me a prediction as to when I might expect to know it all? Don't forget that I'm a well established OAP!!!!! (Ho Ho)

If your going to end up knowing it all, you'll have to get past me ;), and I certainly don't know it all yet, see my thread on difficulties connecting my A1 to my Vaio (still not resolved, and seems unlikely to be solved).

For the minimum load on the CPU, BMP is best (there's no decoding to do, ever), and TIF runs it a close second.
