Recording in Pal DV AVI from Sony Z5U with MRC1K compact flash recorder.
Imported files to computer using the Sony utility, and also tried dragging and dropping.
Some files import to Premiere Pro CS6.03, but others give "File Import Failure: Unsupported format or damaged file,".
The files that do import show up as 4:3 and I have to modify / interpret footage to get them to show as 16:9,
However, these same files play back just fine in Windows Media Player.
Intriguingly these files import just fine to Premiere Pro CS5.5, and also show up correctly as 16:9.
I can't figure out why some files import into CS6 and others don't....
Anyone else seen this kind of behavior?
(Normally I record in HDV and I've never had problems importing from MRC1K into Premiere, but the client specifically requested DV files for their ease of editing...)
PS When I use the DV recoverer utility on these files they import just fine into CS6....
Harm, the .avi in the top picture imports just fine into CS6, despite being type 1.
The .avi in the bottom picture does not import into CS6, but it does import into CS5.5
Therefore I don't think it's a type 1 or 2 issue.
What I'm trying to figure out is why one .avi file should import into CS6 and not another, despite them seeming to show identical attributes in Gspot.
Mark, I too recently started using the MRC1 and ran into the exact issue you're experiencing when I inadvertently recorded to DV rather than HDV. Were you ever able to figure this out?
Jim - how does one change from AVI 1.0 to AVI 2.0?
Howard, I didn't get to the bottom of it, just filed a bug report, since it's clearly a bug as previous versions of Premiere import the file just fine.
I used the DVRecoverer utility to make Premiere CS6 import the file. Here's the link:
I agree, it does seem like a bug. I was able to import my footage by using a free utility (DVdate) to convert from AVI type 1 to AVI type 2.
I hope this info will be helpful to someone.
Thank for your help,
