I have a Sony 60gb DCR-SR47, and I cannot import directly from the camera, if I try to import the file from its HD it will come without audio (comes as an MPEG-2 file) I have to open iMovie, which recognizes it fine, import the files, this transforms it into a .mov and now I can import the whole file into premiere. But it think it looses quality. Premiere simply does not recognizes the camera, iMovie does. I have a mac as you can tell.
Does anybody know how to make premiere recognize my camera. Why does premiere can't and iMovie can. Do I need a pluggin or add-on?
For standard definition, a tape-based DV or MiniDV camera is the recommended choice.
