On my last vacation I didn't notice that I had bumped a setting dial until I got home, and some of my videos were recorded with a different setting... size/aspect ratio, not sound/video, but still a problem that I didn't catch while recording
I am pretty sure that all the files are formatted the same way, as they are .mp4 videos, recorded in the same batch, and I did not make any changes to any settings over the course of the day other than audio levels and aperture adjustments. Media Info doesn't show anything other than that they are all video files. They all open as normal videos in quicktime, vlc, etc. The problem almost certainly lies with how Premiere is importing the files.
Premiere seems to be saying that the first 8 video files are "MPEG Movies," while the latter 18 audio files are "Quicktime Movies."
This is nonsensical to me, because:
1) They are all identically formatted .MP4 files
2) Both file types (Quicktime and MPEG) are movie files, the properties window has video specs for both file types, and yet the "Quicktime Movies" only function as audio files
3) All 26 files can import without issue into Resolve
I am officially cancelling my CC subscription. For the record, this WAS the last straw. Importing files is a FUNDAMENTAL task and if Premiere Pro can not handle 26 identically formatted .mp4 files as the same file type, I don't know what else to say. It is literally the first step of any post production process, and I can not put my job and time at risk because of software that simply DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY.
I have this exact problem currently. Have you found a solution?
