I am trying to use Premiere 8 to edit my AVCHD files from a Panasonic camcorder. The files are MTS format and in Windows 7 explorer the file icons show a preview of the first frame as you would normally expect.
However in Premiere 8 organiser the preview does not show and all the files show a generic "filmstrip" icon so there is no way of identifying which clip is which.
If I drag one of these files into Premiere 8 editor, the first frames show up normally in Sceneline and it appears to be possible to edit the files OK.
Is this normal behaviour for Premiere 8? I have to say I am not too impressed with Premiere (which I have only had for a few days) as it keeps hanging my laptop (core i7 4GB ram Windows 7 64 bit)
Any sugggestions anyone?
I have just found a work-around to my own problem.
If I select all (CTR-A) then R-click and choose "update" it then shows all the previews.
