As we can see, most file formats are supported, and only a few are not supported. However, when you get the files with RM, MKV, TS, etc. for video editing, you will be disturbed and have to look for the solution for these files. If you install a plug-in for Adobe Premiere, you can spend most of your time on video editing, instead of converting the file. Moyea Importer for Adobe Premiere is the right plug-in for you to enable Adobe Premiere work with non-supported listed above without conversion.
