Wrong combination of camera and PP. Get another camera, or use a consumer application like WMM. PP cannot work with those MOD/MOI files.
>PPR3 cannot import MOD/MOI Files
We know. The best recommendation is to simply not use them for editing. They were designed primarily for watching.
And, to add to Harm's reply, even Premiere Elements does not take kindly to .MOD files, though it might be more lenient, than Pro, if you first do conversions. If you are considering a different NLE, you may wish to read up on .MOD in the Elements forum.
have you tried this one:
definitely I can say that Converio doesn't like my files, sorry
Thanks to all who answered to my question.
Getting a true and realistic respond helps sometimes more than any promises. Now it's up to me to find out what to do.
Have you tried changing the .mod extention to .mpg?
it's terrible, I do not find any practicable way out of this dilemma.
Have you an idea which (flash) camera to use when working wit PPRE3?
yes I did. But the 4:3 or the 16:9 ratio and the audio track seems to be lost.
Currently in CS3 the following types of cameras work without problems:
XDCAM-HD, XDCAM-EX, HDV (which by definition means tape), DVCPro-HD/P2 and tape based DV.
All other types of cameras require some form of conversion into an acceptable format, some are relatively easy to convert, others are almost impossible. Often the camera manufacturer supplies some kind of editing or capturing program to ease the burden of conversion. If not, Google is your friend, but don't expect miracles. Miracles also take time.
In general cameras that need conversion record in a format that is suitable for watching and not for editing, with all the inherent drawbacks on final quality.
What will come with CS4 is anybody's guess. Maybe AVCHD will be added, maybe not. Adobe doesn't say.
> yes I did. But the 4:3 or the 16:9 ratio and the audio track seems to be lost.
For the 16:9 you need to set the interprete footage in the project window to widescreen.
For the audio you either copy the ac3 dll from Encore or install a AC3-filter codec.
Another option is to use the "open audio from video" function in Audition. After changing the file extension from .MOD to .mpg, use this function to import the ac3 audio into audition, and save as a WAV, wma, mp3, etc. and import the new file into Premiere and place it on an audio track and sync it up to the video track.
thanks for the additional way for to get the audio.
Due to the German layout of my menus I'm not sure where to find the above mentioned feature.
Could you give me a hint?
Open Audition and click on "File" in the upper left hand corner. A drop down menu opens and "open audio from video" is the 5th item down.
