I have imported MPEG-1 video into Adobe Premiere 5.0 and converts it into AVI file. I have set the option of "30 frames per second without dropped frame". But why the AVI movie is not smooth when using Windows Media Player to playback? My computer has Pentium-II 350 CPU.

Premiere 5.0 had some interface problems with CODECs, for starters, and 5.1 fixes these.  You should be able to download the 5.1 upgrade free as a registered user of 5.0, or call Adobe to get replacement CD.

What Windows version are you running, and what Media Player?  In Windows 98, for instance, Media Player 6.0 is available through the WindowsUpdate page. Out of curiosity, do you also have Quicktime installed and does the playback also appear the same way?  I know www.apple.com has the new 3.02 quicktime upgrade available.

I also have this problem in Adobe Premiere 4.2. Moreover, I import video from video tape recorder through a capture card and then convert the video into AVI in Premiere. But the video is also not smooth when I convert it in 30 frames/s. Then I am forced to convert it in 15 frames/s instead.
I am using Microsoft Windows Media Player 6.0 to playback the converted video.
I have Quicktime 3.0 installed.
When I playback any video formats, it's smooth. But after convert into AVI format, it's also not smooth. It's just like 1 frame/s.

Can you help me? Or are there any other software can do this?

What is your Video Capture Card Type?  I ask this because some cards aren't supported in Premiere 5.0 up, such as the Miro DC-20.  As regards Quicktime, verify your version.  There was information that Quicktime 3.02 update (download free from www.apple.com) fixes some problems with Adobe upgrades and smoothness of playback.

When you do the initial conversion, or capture,settings have a lot to do with it.  What capture interface are you using?  Again, this would be relative to the type of capture card you have, compression used and so on.

I've downloaded Intel's IV5PLAY.EXE from the Intel web site, which updates their drivers, etc. also helped improve some issues.

Lots depends on how you are set up.  Hope this helps.  If anyone provides the solution you need, advise via comment so it may be posted as an answer for you to assess.

This happens to me a lot as well. If you open the file using "Active Movie Controll", it should turn out much clearer.

Have you tried viewing the final movie outside of premiere?  Is the performance still the same then?

Try exporting the video without sound ........ does it run smother ? .......... if it does export the sound with a different audio codec

if that doesn't work

you should set the key frames option on and to about every 15 frames or less so media player can track the video

                                                                                              Good Luck
