    Can't view an .avi file in Premiere Pro CS6. Getting an "unsupported format or damaged file" error.

      I am trying to bring three separate animations into Premiere Pro, but it won't pull them into the Source window or Sequence timeline. The three files are uncompressed .avi files that were rendered out in Autodesk Inventor. They are 15 second clips, around 2gb each, and 40fps. I can play them in Windows Media Player without a problem. Any ideas on where to start troubleshooting? I can't imagine it's a codec issue, if the files are uncompressed?


      Edit: I used MediaInfo to get the info on the video.
