    Importing AVCHD files into CS4 4.1.0 question

    cmcs1234

      I have a Mac Pro and I am using Premiere 4.1.0 and am using a Sony HDR-SR8 video cam which produces AVCHD video.  When I copy the folder off the camera to the hard drive, then import the video files, they look grainy in the viewer.

       

      I also have Final Cut Express and tried bringing in the same files, but FCE converts to Quicktime and once the files are dropped in the viewer, they look great.

       

      Why do the files brought into Premiere CS4 look lousy?
