Issue with footage shifting in timeline when opening same project in Mac and then PC
on Jan 12, 2019 at 9:28:19 pm

Hello!

First time poster, and could really use some help.

When I create/edit a project in Premiere on my Mac laptop, and then open the same project in premiere on my PC desktop computer, the footage within the sequence shifts forward in the timeline, and the beginning of the clip in the sequence is greyed out / blank.

This only happens with .MXF and .MP4 files... .MOV and .M2ts clips don't shift in the timeline.

Premiere is the same version on both computers.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Any footage shot using phones in it? Phone video pretty much always gives the uninitiated fits.
And iPhone video in PP on a mac would NOT behave well in PP on a windows box.

Thanks for the response. The footage was mainly shot on Sony cameras (FS5 and A7sii).

That wasn't the question.

Is there ANY phone video in the project -- not just "mainly no".

Sorry for the lack of clarity - there was NO phone footage in the project.

The same issue happened with a previous project - again no phone footage, only .MXF and .MP4 footage from Sony cameras.

Here's a photo to demonstrate what happens:

The amount of shift looks to be on the order of 40 seconds. What are the codecs used in the mxf & mp4's?

At first I thought it could have been a frame rate mismatch, but that wouldn't result in 40 seconds! Just a couple frames at most.
May we assume that the video plays back normally?
