You have 5.1 sound from the camera that can not be handled by PR.
Some study before buying would have shown that as a serious problem.
Now you need to demux and convert the audio to stereo WAV/PCM 48 KHz, 16 bit before importing.
Thanks for the answer.
But can an mpg File have 5.1 sorrund sound ? Is this not yet Stereo ?
This is one of the problems...
Do you maybe have an idea regarding the importing problem with the m2ts file too ?
Thanks a lot
Premiere Pro CS3 cannot natively edit AVCHD footage in an .m2ts file. However, you can use the Panasonic AVCHD Transcoder to convert your AVCHD files into DVCPROHD which is editable by CS3. Note that some people have complained of poor quality using this transcoder, but it is free. If you have a fast computer, you can also upgrade to Premiere Pro CS4 (though this option costs money) which does have native AVCHD editing capability.
Doesn't Panasonic have some tools for that? Otherwise Google for a solution using terms like 'demux AVCHD' or 'AVCHD 5.1'.
Thanks ! I will try it !
Addressing JUST the AC3 DD Audio, most find that copying the AC3 .dll from Encore to PrPro, allows for the handling of AC3 Audio. Do not have the exact CS3 version's full name handy, but it should be the only "ac3" .dll in your Encore folder - remember, Copy. Do not Move.
Others are addressing the AVCHD aspect, so I'll stay out of that.
I just got an CD with a poor programm from panasonic =S
You can cut some clips and convert into mpeg2.. wow =)
Thanks a lot !
