Premiere Pro does not have the same auto edit feature that Clip does but there is a way that helps you quickly build a sequence. Check out this link here and search for 'Add clips to a sequence automatically'. Again not nearly has powerful as Clip's auto sequence creation but helps get you going.
Premiere Clip only supports formats that iOS supports. You were on the right track transcoding your files in Adobe Media Encoder. If you want to try that path I'd recommend the following:
1. Import your .mts and .mpg files into Media Encoder
2. Under 'Format' select .mp4 | Under Presets select 'Match Source' - Your files should come out at a very reasonable size unless they already started at 25GB.
3. Once the files are transcoded, follow one of the methods listed in this link to transfer the files to your iPad to edit in Clip.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to write back here.
Thank you for the reply.
I got Media Encoder to convert the .MTS file. Originally 439 MB. Now its a 207 MB .mp4. I chose 'high bit rate'. Not sure what step I missed the first time. I selected 'match source' earlier but it didn't work.
I deleted some files off the iPad to make room to get the new files into the project. It lets me select the file from Dropbox and import it into Premiere Clip. However, when the iPad stops 'thinking' and the movie is ready to play, it plays the soundtrack but the screen is blank. When I play the .mp4 on my PC laptop, it plays fine. I added stills and and it plays the stills in the auto sequence, but when the movie clip comes up its still a black screen.
Here's the original promo (rough sketch):
I'm trying to add several video clips into the mix AND eventually add one of their original songs as the soundtrack.
Thanks again for any support.
Just tried the medium bit rate. That didn't work either.
The settings under "Apple" worked! I was able to convert the .MTS file and bring the .mp4 file into Premiere Clip.
My next question: How can I use my own .MP3 as a sounds track? I can't get Clip to see my MP3 files I have on Dropbox.
That's great Jason! Glad you got it working. You music needs to come from your iTunes library. Creative Cloud and Dropbox does not currently support importing audio files into Clip.
We look forward to improving this workflow in the future.
Thanks for the update!
My latest wall.....
I was able to sync up some .MP3 into my music Library on my iPad. They are now live options when I go to music in Premiere Clip. However, even though I select the .mp3, I get this error: "Missing Sound Track: The soundtrack is missing because it was moved or deleted from the device."
The songs play in iTunes in my music library AND they even play in the preview in Premire Clip...the sounds track doesn't play when it goes to sync up with the visual assets (movie clips and jpgs)
Sorry this hasn't been the smoothest experience for you Jason. I heard of that error before but yet to see it in person. A number of us have made many attempts to reproduce this without luck. Sorry for the workarounds but hopefully one of these will get you going. I'll start with the simplest and work our way down.
- Sign out and back into Clip and try your steps again.
- Sign out > Delete Clip and reinstall > Try your steps.
- If you have an iPhone, sign in to Clip using the same account as your iPad. Wait for the project that was created on your iPad to sync to your iPhone. Attempt to add the desired soundtrack - If a soundtrack is added successfully, edit your video on your phone or wait for the project to sync and then finish your edit on your iPad.
- Sign out and quit Clip > Launch Clip and create a new Adobe ID from the Welcome Screen > Within the new account, create a new project and attempt to add a song from your iTunes library – If a song is added successfully, sign out of current account and sign back into Clip with your primary Adobe ID and attempt to add a song from your iTunes library.
I hope one of the 4 suggestions works for you Jason. Let us know how it goes.
Thanks again for the input. Long story short.....
The music worked fine on on my phone. But then my phone choked on all of the meda files. So I had to bring it back to the iPad and it kept the song in there. If I want to switch songs, I'll have to do it from the phone (Galaxy S5). It was a breakthrough. And the music doesn't play well on the iPad. But after rendering it plays fine on the phone.
Whew. Craziness....all for a garage band. Here's how the promo video ended with Clip:

I think if we want to polish it up more, we'll check it out in Premiere Pro.
Thanks for all of your help. i'm sure I'll be in touch. Let me know if you were able to see the clip.
