Thanks for the link. Converting .mpg files to .avi looks like the solution.
Here is a question for anyone in the know... Is there any advantage to using software like "MPEG Pro" to just importing .MPG files to Windows Movie Maker, saving as a .AVI then bringing into CS3?
>importing .MPG files to Windows Movie Maker, saving as a .AVI then bringing into CS3
WMM creates DV AVI Type 1 files... Premiere needs Type 2 files
Use a different conversion tool, or know that you need to convert 1 to 2 after WMM
DVDate Convert AVI Type 1<-->2 Convert NTSC<-->PAL
Or, just use something else to do the edit
Edit MPEG with Premiere Elements or WOMBLE or direct from DVD with Movie Edit Pro
PS - LOTS of information in My Adobe Notes
Using Windows Vista Movie Maker and 'publishing' as .avi, I can not tell if these are Type 1 or 2 files, but they are opening with both audio and video in CS3. I would like to say "all is well" but is there something down the road that will come up if these, are indeed, not type 2 files?
I have the same problem, with a different twist. I client has dropped of thousands of MPG clips from various basketball games, and wants each game on a dvd. ealier this year we created a highlight video on dvd from these games, using the MPG files and premiere pro 1.5. Everything worked great, I was able to import the files, edit the files, and create the dvd. Audio came through fine.
Now, when I try and import the exact same files to make complete game DVD's the audio does not import, I only get the Video. Windows MPlayer can play the clip with audio, and I can also bring the clips into encore cs3 i get video and audio, however, these clips generate errors when i try to build as for some reason the auido and video of the exact same clip are not the same length. Which is why I decided to try to import the clips and premiere cs3 and create the dvd's.
there must be some setting in cs3 (won't work in pp2 either) that is preventing mpg audio from importing with the video... any guidance would be appreciated.
