    Should I compress my raw .AVI footage first before editing in Premiere Pro

    Nateido1 Level 1

      Hello all,

      I'm very new to Premiere Pro, and video editing in general.  I'm creating footage out of video games, and have .AVI footage I'm recording that is usually around 4gb or so (I'm not recording long stretches of gameplay).  Should I convert my .AVI's into .mp4 using Adobe's Media Encoder before editing, or it it fine to work with .AVI files within Premire?  Any help greatly appreciated!
