I had read those limitations, however I am not sure how they apply? The files I am trying to open do open, they just don't open fully. Thanks.
We have a series of HD (720p, 1080i) files in AVI that we are trying to import.
From what source specifically? Premiere has a tendancy to work best with standard camera formats, and there aren't any cameras that use HD files in AVI format.

You originally posted:
Some are MPEG2
The trial version does not import MPEG files, hence my response.
I have tested with multiple files. But most often I import using a Blackmagic hardware encoder, importing from an Component (RGB), or HDMI source.
Thank you Eddie. I also saw those limitations, which is why I attempted the same procedure with an AVI file encoded as DV. The same thing happens no matter Mpeg-2 or DV. I also found it odd that it would import the first few minutes of the Mpeg2 file, even if Mpeg importing was fully excluded?
The only format that will work reliably in the trial version is MS DV AVI type2. That is only 720x480 NTSC or 720x576 PAL.
