Q.  When I import movies (.MPG files) from my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P200
Adobe Premiere they stutter.  How can I fix this?

A.  Movies from this camera are 25 frames per second.  Setting
the project to this rate improves things some but not entirely.

I convert movies to 30 frames per second Quicktimes using ffmpeg like this:

ffmpeg -i MOV04824.MPG -sameq -r 30 mov04824_30.mov
and they are much smoother when imported into Premiere.
