First time opportunity to use newly purchased Premiere Elements 7.0;had been using online services and/or MS Movie Maker neither of which I had issues with imported .avi files being excessively jerky on playback within the application.
Properties on the .avi files are as follows:
Image: 320×240; Bit Rate: 64kbps; Audio Format: MPEG Layer-3; Frame Rate: 30FPS; Data Rate: 5080kbps
I’ve tried what adjustments I could find in the application, but to no avail. Since this was a relatively easy thing in the other applications I used am I just missing setting a particular configuration or other parameter?
That is probably a type 1 avi, Premiere Elements will only work with type 2 avi files.
Convert the file to DV-AVI using Windows Movie Maker and Premiere Elements will work with that file just fine.
