Is there any way to get Premiere Pro CS5.5 to recgonize spanned AVCHD clips that are on two different SD Cards? I shoot with a Panasonic AG-AC160 that has dual SD cards slots. It can span record from one slot to the next. I was just wondering if anyone has figured out any way to get Premiere to recgonize that the clips from the end of card one and start of card two are actually spanned and join them together like it does with spanned clips that are on One card?
Copy both cards in their entirety over to your hard drive. Use Premiere Pro's Media Browser to do the importing. This should bring the spanned files in as one clip.
The problem is that I can only open one "PRIVATE" folder at a time in the Media Browser (As far as I know) so then I import all the clips from the first PRIVATE folder and then I have to open the second PRIVATE folder and import all of those clips.
I would assume that importing using Media browser from the first card would include the rest of the media for that one clip stored on the last card.
If this doesn't work, then either Adobe, Panasonic or both have failed to properly implement the "spanned clips" idea.
