Cannot Load CS5.5 Projects Into Premier PRo Cs6 when they contain MTS files

May 14, 2012 3:51 PM

Tags: #pro #mts #avchd #cs6 #premier

I recently installed My Upgraded Version of CS6 from Disks Sent by Adobe. After doing so, i can no longer see CANON MTS files, they open as Offline Media and it also cann not be replaced or re-imported into the Project. In CS5.5 they still open normally. I even imported correctly into After Effects CS6, adn they were viewable. Premier Pro Twitter help Says Solution maybe to start fresh with a new project?? This isnt REALLY a viable option since i have a TON of CS5.5 Projects that contain Canon MTS Files. So if there are any other suggestions i am ALL EARS!!!!

    i have a TON of CS5.5 Projects

     

    General wisdom is to finish those in 5.5, and only start new projects in CS6.

    Please make sure that CS6 is properly activated (requires online activation) so that the protected content will allow these codecs to import.

     

    That is the only reason I can think of right now why you aren't able to relink these files.

    Did you try them in a new project?  They still don't work even then?

    Just for clarification, are you unable to open the project at all or is it opening but not allowing you to import/relink the mts files?

    yes works in a new project

     

    O-kaaay...then why is it not an option to finish current projects in the current version and only start new projects in the new version?

    For my clarification of the issue.

     

    One has never been able to open a previous version project in a later version ...directly.

     

    It usually / always asks if you want to save as a "NEW VERSION PROJECT" first.... and give one a save as option.

     

    What was your workflow as regards opening a CS5.5 project in CS6?

     

    Something I have never done cross versions is Import a previous version into a later version...so I have no idea if that ever worked or otherwise.

     

    Importing and Opening are two  very different things and would be handled differently by Premiere - I expect..

    I'm thinking this isn't a project compatibility issue.  This is the 2nd instance I've heard from users that Canon MTS files aren't working correctly in CS6.  I believe QE's looking into the issue to see if they can repro.

     

    Cheers

    Wil, I think that this may be the same issue that you heard about earlier, since Thor here is the person whose issue I alerted the team about earlier.

    Sony AVCHD files link automatically in the new CS6 project.

    CS6 has a comparable issue with mxf files, which adobe is aware of, and is working on.

    TheMtyThor,

     

    Thank you for the clarification. I just wanted to make sure that I was following the proper trail.

     

    I will check this out today and see if I can reproduce this issue as described.

    I'm in a similar jam.

     

    So does the solution go as follows? : Open the Premiere Pro CS5.5 project in CS5.5 > save as > new version project > close Pp CS5.5 > then open the saved project in Pp CS6.

     

    Is there a similar process for opening an After effects CS5.5 project in Ae CS6 ?
