Adobe Bridge CS4 for MTS files ?

Nov 18, 2008 11:02 PM

When I open the Bridge CS4 pointing to a folder with MTS file (AVCHD), there are no thumbnails of the video nor a Preview of the current selection. Is this a bug? Is there a Browser/Organizer for MTS files?

    Most likely bridge doesn't support those files. Bridge doesn't preview certain every type of file premiere supports. Only the most common ones and not any tapeless formats. That's the main reason Premiere has Media Browser so you can see the thumbnails and the previews.

    Josh,

    Does this mean that "Media Browser" is not Bridge? Are there now two programs for "browsing?" Had not heard this, and assumed that people's comments on "Media Browser," just meant Bridge.

    Thanks,

    Hunt

    Bill, see Import files from the Media Browser in the PPro CS4 Help.


    Cheers

    of course they are different. Bridge is a separate program and 'media browser' a premiere feature. Check it out pretty neat. (expect for 24p media listening ADOBE?)

    Hi guys,
    still, for After Effects users would be pretty handy a MTS previewer plugin for Bridge.
    I recently got back from a shooting. There are roughly 500 MTS files.
    I need one of them to edit in AE. Guess the only way is to first open Premere Pro, then preview the thumbnails, then create a dynamic link to AE, and finally close Premiere Pro... not very quick, though, also because to open Premiere Pro I need to create a project, then remove it :(

    Regards

    Stefano

    The Media Browser does not show all thumbnails either, just the ones stated in the 'view as' pull down menu.
    The project window shows quite a few more thumbnails than the Media Browser does.

    Yeah, that's what I mean. The only way to preview the thumbnail of a MTS video is to use the Project panel in Premiere Pro.
    Unfortunately.

    AVCHD should show up in the Media Browser, should it not?
    I have a couple of avchd clips on my pc but they do not show up either, just in de project panel.

    I guess you missed a line in my previous post. What I need is to preview MTS files in After Effects.

    AE gives you a preview, but then again you will have to arrow key them down one at time. Once you found the clip you can chuck the rest out. This will save you a Pprjct.
