    MPEG format in Premiere Pro CS5.5

    managamanaga

      Hello,

       

      I have an issue about file format compatibility in CS 5.5.

      I have 2 type MPEG file format, XDCAM HD 422, 1080i

      If Video ID is  768, adobe premiere not support this file, but if the video ID is 512, CS 5.5 can read this file.

       

      This is the file properties (can't open by premiere CS5.5) :

      Any one can help me to explain about this MPEG file format compatibility?

      Thank you very much.

          I don't have a direct answer, but you might try downloading the trial of PPRO CC just to check whether it can open the "768" clip. Also, might be worth checking whether VLC will play the clip.

           

          I'm not even sure what the ID number signifies. The data point that caught my eye in the clip that won't load in PPRO CS5 is "Format settings, GOP: M=3, N=12 or Variable." Don't know what to make of it, but I've never seen "variable" there.

            Hello Mark,

             

            Yes, I think maybe the variable GOP is the problem.

            I have tried test some clips, and all the variable GOP can't drag into the timeline.

             

            The clips are ftp-out from our broadcast system storage (Harris) formerly known as Leitch. i think they put some encryption or somethink to make their product proprietary.

             

            i can play the clips in the windows media player classic.

             

            I'll try PPPRO CC and see what happen

             

            Thank you very much for your advice.
