Well, I fixed the skipping glitch, but at the expense of video quality. For those of you interested, I copy and pasted the sequence into a new sequence with the compressor set to H.264. Re-exported it H.264, 5000kps and it worked fine, but the video quality suffers a bit.
Anyway, I filmed this all in 60i. There's a time lapse of fog in the valley in the middle of the clip.
