    Client Supplied AVI files from Flip Camera--Can't Edit in Premiere CS3

    MarkWeiss Level 1

      A client handed me a DVD-ROM disc with video footage he shot on a Flip camera.

       

      The footage appears to import with no errors, but when I drag it to the timeline, I am presented with the "no" icon (O with a slash through it).

       

      Apparently CS3 only sees the file as audio and I can drag it there.

       

      VLC Media Player will play both the video AND audio portion, so I know the files are complete. It is just Premiere that can't deal with them.

       

      Before I tell the client I can't take the job, is there anything I overlooked that would make these Flip camera AVI files editable in Premiere CS3?
