What codec are you starting with?
AVCHD, a sub-set of H.264, should Import just fine. What error message are you getting upon Import?
What version of Apple's QT Player do you have installed? The later ones should include one version of H.264.
I have QT 7.7.1
I'm not getting an error. The problem is that when I import the video files they import as Audio only.
I'll update QT Player and try again.
What is your import procedure?
What does the camera record to and what do you do with that....
You can use vlc to convert the file wrapper to .mp4, rather than .avi.
h.262 is supported in Premiere, however you'll need the.mp4 extension and not the .avi wrapper.
Vlc will let you convert the file without re-encoding. I don't know if it let you batch convert the files.
I have a cheap video camera
