AVI to Premiere Pro-Load AVI to Premiere Pro CS6 on Mac

Question 1: "Just installed Premiere Pro CS6 (PC) on a new computer. I can see and play the AVI files in bridge but when I try to import it says there's a file issue and won't import. The file is coming up as H.264/MPEG-4 AVC. Are these files I need to convert to a different format or do I need to add a specific codec to the new machine. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated."

Question 2: "Premiere Pro CS6 cannot play avi with MJPG codec… I have installed Premiere Pro CS6 and wanted to import an avi file exported from 3Dmax 2009. The file IS imported, but it is black in the Monitor (Source Monitor, Program Monitor... everywhere). So I have checked the Media Info in VLC, and it showed that the codec of that file is MJPG (not MJPEG with an E, but MJPG.) Has someone had those problems?"

I have tried converting to another format (.mpg) by Pavtube AVI to Premiere Pro CS6 Converter for Mac, and it worked fine on my Mac Lion. Here's what I do in detailed steps. Hope it helps those who are stuck with AVI playback and edit issues in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6.

Convert AVI files to MPEG-2(.mpg) for Premiere Pro CS5/CS6 smoothly editing


Summary: Can't import AVI files into Premiere Pro CS5/CS6? Can’t open .AVI files or editing .AVI videos in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5/CS6? In this article, we introduce the easy solution to you.

When you try to import and edit some AVI videos with Adobe Premiere Pro, ever met any file importing and transferring problems? There are two typical issues from the Premiere users quoted as below.

Q1: Playback is jerky

The AVI output files play beautifully in Window Media Player. But when I import the AVI file into Adobe Premier in order to add a voice over and export the finished video into other formats, the playback is very jerky. Rather than a smooth movement of the cursor on the screen, which I see in the original AVI files, it's more like a slideshow with the cursor jumping from place to place.

Q2: Unsupported file format/codec

Just installed Premiere Pro CS6(Mac) on a new machine. I can see and play the AVI files in bridge but when I try to import it says there's a file issue and won't import. Are these files I need to convert to a different format or do I need to add a specific codec to the new machine?

Since we can’t use AVI files in Premiere as source video files and have them look good at all, why not try to convert these AVI to a Premiere Pro most compatible format e.g. MPEG-2. Here I will share the step-by-step guide on transcocding AVI to MPEG-2 for Premiere Pro CS6 on Mac OS X with Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac. It 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 with smooth editing without any trouble. If you are Windows users, please get the Video Converter. Below is the detailed guide on converting AVI files to Premiere Pro friendly video formats.

Step-by-step guide: How to Convert and Import AVI files to Premiere Pro CS6?

Step 1: Load source AVI clips

Run AVI to Premiere Converter for Mac and you can import AVI clips to the program through "Add Video" button or "Add from folder" button.

Tip: Check the “Merge into one” box to join AIV clips together if you like.

Step 2: Choose Premiere Pro preferred format

This video converter offers optimized format preset for Adobe Premiere. Just click "Format" menu firstly and then follow "Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas" to set MPG, MOV or WMV format.

Image

Tip: In case the default settings do not fit your requirement, you can click "Settings" button and enter "Profile Settings" panel to adjust video size, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channels.

Step 3: Convert AVI to Premiere Pro compatible video

Click "Convert" button to start encoding AVI to .mpg for Premiere Pro CS6. When the conversion task is finished, click "Open" button to get the exported files for transferring to Premiere Pro CS6 with easy playback or editing.

P.S. This AVI to Premiere Pro Converter not only can help you convert .avi to Adobe, but also enables anyone with AVI files to use in any non-linear editor like Final Cut Pro, iMovie, FCE, Avid Media Composer, etc as long as they convert AVI to a recognizable format.

If you have problems when importing or editing your Canon, Sony, Panasonic etc, camera video files, you can check out “Brorsoft Camcorder/Camera Importing Tips” or “FCE, FCP, iMovie Column” to get your solutions.
