Though PDF's are listed supported formats, there are several flavors, such as Photoshop PDF's with PS editing capabilities, etc. You might, or might not, have good results.
OTOH, you can Open most in PS and then just Save_As .PSD, which will Import beautifully into PrPro.
It's the same with AI (Adobe Illustrator) files. Most will Import, but the best results will come from Placing, Opening, etc., those same AI files in PS and doing the Rasterization there, prior to PrPro.
As Bill says.
I recently extracted a lot of images from pdfs using PhotoShop for a project I just completed.
Of course some pdfs are images only and others are text and images. Either way , I found it best to extract to Photoshop then make sure the images were RGB and sized accordingly (and filtered if necessary). I saved them as psds and then used those inthe PPRO edits.

Great point, and one that I forgot. I do a lot of CMYK PDF's out of PS, so I should have known better.
Thank you for making that important point. The OP will benefit from that info.
PDF is not a supported file format. Bill, you were mistaken. You could import a PDF into AI and export to your video format. You could try to change the extension from PDF to EPS. Sometimes that works.
You are correct. PDF (Clip Notes) is Export ONLY. Thanks for pointing that out.
