      Greetings all, I have a newbie question.

      I am running Adobe Premiere Pro CS4and I want to edit an .mp4 file that is h.264 compressed. It will not import the video into CS4, just the audio. It also will not import a raw AVI or a DV encoded AVI version of this file. The file is 170mb or so and about 4 minutes in length. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks!

      -Alex

      What did you use to convert the file?

      Native format for Premiere is DV-AVI so that format should work fine.

      Besides the fact that the H.264 files are highly compressed and the result of editing them will probably not be very good. I would be interested in hearing your results if you get this worked out. You might want to post at http://muvipix.com/phpBB3/ lots of experience with Premiere and file conversion over there.

      Thanks for the info Chuck!

      I used QTPro to convert it, I can try DV-AVI again and see what happens and I’ve posted at muvipix also to see if I can get answers there. I’ll let you know what I find out.

      H.264 is highly compressed. That's not where you want to start with editing for high quality results. Something even worse, users always found H.264 footage like from GoPro HD(.mp4), Canon EOS(.mov) can’t be recognized by Adobe Premiere Pro. A suggestion is to transcode all H.264 files to MPEG-2 for Premiere Pro.
