I'm trying to import an AVI file into Premiere Pro CS6, and the event panel displays this error multiple times: "A low-level exception occurred in: CFHD_AVI_Importer (Importer)."
The clip imports, but doesn't preview or play. The event panel continues throwing this error. The source window shows only "Media pending."
I know the CFHD_AVI_Importer is the importer for the GoPro Cineform codec, so I redownloaded and reinstalled the codec, to see if that would solve things, but it does not.
Any ideas what would be causing this error, and how to fix it?
What is inside your AVI file?
Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... A screen
shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing

It seems I found the problem. I was using Premiere Pro 6.0.3. I upgraded
to Premiere Pro CC, and now the clip imports just fine.
