The best format for editing in Premiere is MPEG-2 or WMV. To get the work done, you can try using brorsoft video converter for Mac, which can help you change AVI into a different format (e.g. .mov, .wmv, .mpg) with least quality loss.
Brorsoft imported all my avi files and gave me perfect .wmv files to work with. Besides AVI, this video converter app can also help you convert camcorder videos like AVCHD, MOV, MXF, MP4 etc to an editable format for FCP, FCE, iMovie, Avid MC and more for smooth editing. What’s more, it’s combined with powerful editing features like cropping, trimming, adding watermark… to meet your needs.
