Have you tried rendering a final product (even though the preview is bad, does the final product look okay)? I suspect the answer is that it doesn’t look okay, but I figured I’d ask.
I think the problem is with codecs. I came across this article:
To test it, I used Adobe Media Encoder to encode various AVI files I was having trouble with. AVI is the “wrapper” but not the codec, so that explains why some work but some don’t. Adobe PP doesn’t have the codecs to handle all these different formats, I’m betting. After encoding them, I am able to work with them in Premiere Pro (depending on what presets I use in Adobe Media Encoder–some produce good results for PP and some don’t).
If you have Adobe Media Encoder, perhaps you can try this and see if it works?
