Gents. I recently began editing a project on Premiere Pro (CS5 Production Premium) and the files are 422 1080p AJA encoded from Pro8mm in Burbank, California. I had to install an AJA codec to get these files to work on my system and in editing, everything looked and seemed fine. Until yesterday.

I tried exporting my rough cut and was stunned to find it is a mess. I don't know how to describe what it looks like other than to provide you a link to YouTube and say, think psychedelic...



That is VBR2pass and it looks like that no matter what format I choose. MPEG2 or 4 or H.264, etc.

However, if I choose VBR 1 Pass and NONE of the higher quality settings, I get a normal looking picture. Like this...



So if I choose low quality VBR1 and nothing high, I get an image, but that is not an option and shouldn't be happening.

I'm clueless and so are the folks at Pro8mm. This is my first time using them. Previously I had used Lightpress in Seattle and they provided me uncompressed QuickTime files that played 100% and were cake to export. Filmmaker8's files are also a-okay.

So, I am against a deadline (aren't we all) and after spending about twelve hours on this, I am near a total panic. What the hell is happening here?

I am running an i7 PC and am NOT on a MAC. I repeat... No MAC! I am a PC guy.

Is there some other codec or software I need installed? What gives? I would greatly appreciate help on this one.
