Import mpg video into Premiere Pro CS6

Feb 22, 2013 6:04 PM

When I try to import video taken with a Sony Handicam DCR SX63 I get a "There was an error decompressing audio or video". In searching this issue I find many people with the same issue but never a resolution. Is there one? That a novice could implement??

 

MPG format is clearly stated to be compatible. Copied directly from camera to computer via USB it plays just fine. Converting it to a different format (MP4) with DVDVideoSoft Free Studio I can import it into Premiere Pro and do my splicing / editing.

But.. my end result is not as clear (and files are much larger) so feel if I could use the original and stay in that format.. my results would be much better.

 

My project is very simple.. combine some clips, remove some bad footage and burn to a DVD.. any advice on alternate formats would be appreciated as well.

 

Thank you for your time

Ralph

    This page http://store.sony.com/p/DCR-SX63/en/p/DCRSX63#specifications does not indicate anything odd about the video files

     

    But, to be sure, use one of the programs below to gather more information, and post details

    Post up a clip so we can test on other systems.

    You now need to post the download link you got when uploading was completed.

    OK, the clip came in fine with audio, so there's nothing wrong with the media itself or with PP's ability to handle it.  That means we look to what's wrong with your particular system that you get no sound.

     

    Are you updated to 6.0.3?

    Codec packs are notorious for messing up a system.  However, what you installed seems to be more of a way to see what's already installed, rather than a way to install new codecs, so it may not be an issue.

     

    Start by updating to 6.0.3 and report back.

    During the process of installing programs far too many went into the "C" drive (SSD).

     

    That's normal and best left alone.

    Do not install PPro to anything other than your C drive... for whatever reason, the Adobe programers have created a program that does NOT work well when installed to any other drive
