I brought this up durring the pre-release but still can't seem to get any resolution to the fact that perfectly valid flv files that play just fine accross multiple other software, give a "file haas nsupported compression type" error when trying to import into Premiere. I have recieved this with other formats in the past that required me to install additional codecs, but I would think flv being native to Adobe should import. In CS5 I had similar issues but used to be able to import them into AE and then bring the AE sequence into PP as a work around, but can't seem to make that work in CS6. I noticed in searching the forum that this was an issue for many in older versions, but didn't see any recent ones or any real solution. Any insight would be appreciated!
Well...the easy solution would be to use a supported file. FLV is normally when you end up with, not what you start out with.
I'm usually converting these files using Wondershare Video Converter. It can read them just fine.
I've also found that frame rate conversion is better done by Wondershare or ProCoder, than in Premiere. When it's done in Premiere it flickers, when such problem will not appear with videos converted using mentioned programs.
FLV support is only partial, as there are several "flavors" of FLV. My memory is cloudy, but IIRC, FLV's with Sorenson Spark will not Import, where others with CODEC's, such as On2 VP6, etc. will. FLV is but a container, like .AVI, but with far fewer possibilities.
For the FLV's, that do not Import, which CODEC was used?
