Default Help with Editing Jazz Elite HDV 188 Camcorder Video

Hi All,

I really hope you can help me. Not sure if I am posting in the correct area, but this is the only site that has extensive expertise in this area. I am trying to edit the avi files from my HD camcorder inside Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. The videos are HD 1280x720 (half regular HD resolution).

After a while, while doing editing like cutting clips and re arranging clips I loose the video, it just goes black. I dont have an HD computer, but at first it seems like everything works, then all goes crazy. I have all the drivers and video codecs that came with camcorder installed.

The only place where I can edit the videos is using the software that came with camcorder called Arcsoft Media Impression. This software gives me limited editing capability. I really want to use Premiere. I even tried converting the HD video to Quicktime, and various other formats, and i still get same issues.

I am using an HP Pavillion zd8000 with 2gig ram, windows XP pro, 32 bit. I have no problem editing regular DV video using firewire from my older camcorder.

Is there something else i need to edit HD video in Premiere Pro CS4, where I can then export to Regular formats or something that i can the use video in other places or application.

many thanks

You said the jazz cdr disk was loaded, andare you sure the FFD show codecs are in?

it may be posable that the primeir is not h264 complianced.

i used vegas for example it crashs i used win movie maker it crashs

I use magix today and I edit fine.

when you edit with total and saved it still occures?
