AVI and MP4 files with no video in Adobe Premiere

Page 2 of 3« first 2

It is not the renaming of the extension that is fixing this, it is the adding of an extension that is fixing this problem.

For example:
As standard, your footage is called 'Video'. NOTE that there is no extension. - It might be an MPG, a MOV, anything!

Premiere may not recognise it unless it is called 'Video.mpg' or 'Video.mov'

This is because File extensions are hidden.

So all you need to do is SHOW the file extensions.

To show them refer to this guide, and then try importing again!

Download a free converter program and then convert your avi file into a .mov file. reply

Had the same problem but after manually changing the suffix or ending name of the file to filename.MOV it can be correctly imported in to premiere.

The most compatible video format for Adobe Premiere is MPG, you can have a try to download a trial version of the Brorsoft Video Converter to transocde your videos first. This kind of converter is preset the Adobe Premiere output format. reply

Why Premiere Elements can’t open, play, edit AVI files perfectly? In fact, there are thousands of possible codecs for AVIs, only a few of which are supported in Premiere Elements.

If you don’t want to spend time and effort to understand these complicated codecs and download them for video editing in Adobe PE, just download and use Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac, which is able to resolve your trouble effortlessly. This video app can help you change AVI into a different format (e.g. .mov, .wmv, .mpg) with least quality loss. You should then be able to import the new file into Premiere Elements with smooth editing without any trouble. reply

This is bullshit... If Adobe cannot update codec directory fir such expensive softeware then it’s not worth it. Why should I spend this much for a software n have to download a converter besides that? And mind u its bot the only defect premiere pro has. If u load mpeg file using ac3 audio u get no sound during playback! It’s a total mess! reply
