Please help. All the information I've found is dated back to 2012. Is there no resolution to this yet?
Right now, you can't import them directly. But the new update of Premiere CC, which was supposed to be due this month, will let you import them. If you're in a hurry, the best bet would be to convert them to a proxy format for editing and then re-link them later.
Sundog3000 is correct.
If this doesn't need to go out ASAP just hang tight the new release of Premiere Pro CC is coming soon
