Did you find any merit in renaming the file extension from .mts to
Thanks for providing a pointer to something to try. Here's what I did:
- Using one of those files as a test, I deleted the file from the catalog (but not the hard disk, of course)
- In Windows Explorer, I changed the filename extension to one of the ones suggested
- Back in Organizers, I did an "Import from Files and Folders"
- In the file browsing window, I could see the file, and in most cases (in other words, with most of those filename extensions applied), I was able to preview the clip in the file browsing window
- Once the file was imported, I got the same behavior in the Elements Organizer, no change from original.
- This was true for all the extensions you suggested
Another thing I tried was to import the file with the avi extension, then create a new project in Premiere Elements and try to import that file from the Organizer. It showed up with a yellow upsidedown triangle saying that this file is not supported. But if I went through the same routing with the file renamed as m2t, it would import into a PrE project, but no sound. And again, if I did all the same but with the original mts extension, it imported as expected, sound and all.
There must be a codec here somewhere. After all, the clip is definitely playing, but just not in Organizer!
