      What are you system specs and what type of video (format) are you trying to edit?

      Premiere handles various formats differently….

      Here is a list of all acceptable formats for premiere…the formats highlighted in red can be handled natively, however I still have notivced a difference in performance between the native formats themselves.

      http://www.adobe.com/products/premiere/pdfs/prempro_cs4_formatguide.pdf

      DVCPRO HD/P2seems to work very well with premiere as well as most1280x720 formats…1920(1440)x1080 formats tend to cause more lag for obvious reasons.

      There also may be background process going in the backgound such as premire conforming or creating peak files.

      If you are just working with SD 720×480 footage, there should be no lag at all unless there are alot of effects and/or you are using a non-native DV format.

      I have the same problem with .avi files. When I use .mov files this doesn’t happen. I have used both butafterthe file using the .avi files is rendered it plays just fine.

      What type of computer setup(s) do you have? Just curious….

      also, what codec did you use for theavi files initially?
