I tried getting this to work in Premiere pro cs6 or premiere element but it wouldn't accept this avi video file. When importing the avi file to either application, the file is imported but it shows up as an audio with no video. The video does play just fine in Windows Media Player. The file is archived as an avi file from a lorex dvr system with a codec IMM4. It is encrypted with the date and time which is very important to maintain.
I have tried the following, but same problem of no video, only sound persists.
for %%a in (*.avi) do ffmpeg -i "%%a" -vcodec copy -acodec copy -f mp4 -y "%%~na".mp4
I would appreciate anyones insight on this matter.
The following is the GSpot report on the file:
Try playing the AVI files in VirtualDub. It has rudimentary editing capabilities that might keep the metadata intact during export. How will you play back the edited footage? Will Windows Media Player work or will you need DVD or web playback?
This has been a persistent and annoying problem from CS4 on with Premiere and Abobe still hasn't fixed it. It happens to me, even with AVI files I made with earlier versions of PP.
You might try this fix...open Windows Movie Maker and load the AVI file on it, then save it as a new file name and then see if PP will open it.
I'm having the same problem.
CS3 works fine with the avi files, but CS6 can't decipher it.
Very aggravating - I thought CS6 was supposed to be an improvement.
Luckily I have not uninstalled CS3.
One solution I found was using Windows Movie Maker to open the file and then save it to a WMV format.
That opened correctly in CS6.
It's still another step I didn't need in CS3.
