When importing the Sony EX1 BPAV clips, it comes up with a codec error of some sort, but if I press ok, it lets the files import and all appears to be fine, except, I've noticed that some of my shots have little glitches in them! Very frustrating. I have of course rendered and done everything I can from that perspective but it is almost like they are damaged files! I'm guessing it has to do with the error I get.... the original video files play fine.... they just don't play back well in Premiere, and it is only some clips that play up... not all of them!
I use a sony card reader and transfer the BPAV folder onto my Raid HD system, then import from there.
Do you import using Media Browser? I find this works better with EX files than the import on the file menu.
Well, for those who can’t import BPAV files to Premiere Pro for any unknown reason, an alternative solution is to convert BPAV files to Adobe Premiere Pro more compatible format like MPEG-2, which will bring you a fast and native workflow.
