So I'm using Premiere Pro 2015.2 and for this particular client, I always receive a combined voiceover/music track that's made by a third party and is given to me as a stereo MP3 file. I import it into Premiere and the last second or two is completely cut off. I have no idea what causes this.

The files have the same audio frame rate that I normally use (44,100 Hz), and the end still gets cut off if I use the frame rate that the sequences use (4800 Hz). The only thing that keeps it from happening is if I convert the file to .wav in Audition and re-import it.

Any idea what's going on or how I can avoid this?

Oh, and roughly one out of every five clips I import from this client doesn't get cut off. Nothing seems to be different about that one.

Try converting them to an AIF or WAV file in Audition, then bring them into Premiere. MP3 doesn't always play nice with edit systems.

I never trust compressed audio. Too many screwy things can happen when using them. Sometimes they're fine, sometimes they're not. It's hit-and-miss. Really aggravating. So I just convert 'em in Audition. It's not a big deal.

In my experience, only Avid software is okay with them; that's because Avid converts them to audio-only MXF files.

So if you want to rid yourself forever of the bane of converting mp3's, work with Avid. Not PP. Otherwise, save yourself the potential for grief and think of Audition as your friend.

PS -- the majority of audio coming from cameras is at 48 kHz, not 44.1.
