Drag a clip to the New Item icon at the bottom of the project panel, or create a custom sequence preset using Desktop Editing Mode.
You will notice that it will be interpreted as 25P, but for the rest it is perfectly editable, only not in 50P because Panasonic chose to introduce a new video format that not even their other products support, not even their top-of-the-line BR players or recorders.
For the time being the 25P format is the best you can get from 50P, untill Panasonic or other players in this field make machines available to export to 50P, which is a long time off IMO.
The source material is nice though, just a pity you can't edit in that format nor export in that format.
Be sure to use the 5.1 audio recording when shooting. The LPCM format gives you trouble.
Harm's response is not correct!
It is very well possible to process 50P in CS5.
The only issue is, there is no predefined sequence preset available for 50P so you will have to define your own custom sequence preset (as stated earlier by Colin).
Indeed, 50P does not "fit" in the current BR standard, however if you store your video on other media (e.g. I store it on a NAS), than you will be able to perfectly play them on 50P.
1080 50p sequences and clips are supported. They are not available under the AVCHD presets but you can create your own if you set the editing mode to desktop. Dragging these clips to the new item icon will set this up for you.
Show me where to set 50p.
It just can't be done.
50p can be defined with 720 material, just not with 1080 material.
Really? I mean... really?
Harm, you know perfectly well that Editing Mode is simply a shortcut to setting parameters for certain established formats, but in reality, is completely meaningless in terms of Premiere Pro's capability to edit a given format. Of course, this 1080/50p (or 60p) material is outside of the AVCHD spec, but that is irrelevant when it comes to editing in or exporting from Premiere Pro.
Darn it! I just sold my TM700 based on Harm's comment.
Explain this to me:
By means of desktop settings the sequence is 50p.
Click on the properties of a clip in this timeline and it shows:
Why does it keep the interpretation at 25 fps?
Why can't you interpret the footage as 50 fps?
This is footage from a TM700.
If you interpret the footage as 50 fps, both video and audio are speeded up.
This is shown as the properties.
This is shown after interpreting the footage and finally,
this happens to the time-line.
Something is not quite right. Look at the duration in the last pic.
Are you sure you filmed in 50p and not 50i.

Check your second Interpret Footage screen cap. You forgot to interpret the field order. It needs to be set Progressive, not Upper Field First. That would explain the 2x speed of the interpreted clip.
The 1080 50p clips I have from this camera have the proper framerate and field order without needing to interpret footage. Something seems wrong here.
That does not work. Same problem.
Start a new project
Start a new sequence
Select custom and put an own name there (e.g. TM700)
Select the "general" tab
Enter the settings
editing mode = desktop
time base = 50 frames per second
frame size 1920:1080
display format 50 fps
Start editing your video
When finished select: export - media
Export settings: match sequence settings
That is it!
Then I agree with Ann and Steve that something is seriously wrong with your system and/or project.
This appears to be a problem with the footage. I would double check the camera settings, the clips I have seem to work fine. I've found an online sample, Harm can you try this file:
File Path: /Volumes/RSS G-DRIVE Mini/Jacks 2010 Hoop/Week 5/STREAM/00000.MTS

There are only two logical conclusions I can think of:
- You have 50i clips, not 50p. Something like MediaInfo should confirm this.
- If they are 50p, then Premiere Pro borked them on import--I have had this happen with MPEG media when the "Write XMP IDs on Import" option is checked in Preferences > Media. Unfortunately, once this happens, the files are broken; you might be able to demux and remux to fix them, but that's an awful workaround.
Beyond that... dunno.
Glad to see you use some of the same sources of information as I do. I have a subscription to Video Aktiv to keep me up-to-date and it is a nice source of info.
The video you pointed me to shows up as 50p. I have asked my son, whose clips I am using here, to check the video camera settings and report back. I just copied the files to my hard disk and had these properties show up. I'll get back to you once I have further info. Meanwhile, did you have the opportunity to check your mail?
I first want to hear from my son about his camera settings before I take any drastic measures. Thanks for trying to figure this out.
Send me a file with YouSendIt and i will check it out for you.
Yes, I certainly wouldn't recommend the demux/remux course of action except for life-or-death circumstances No guarantees that would even work--I've had Premiere corrupt files so that they won't even open in external players.
Based on the fact that you can open the clip Steve linked to and it shows up as 50p, and that other folks are able to import 50p/60p media from this camera, it sure does sound like a case of mistaken identity, more than anything. Does GSpot open these clips? If so, what does it report? I use MediaInfo instead of GSpot, and I know that it properly identifies these clips as 50p/60p.
Interested to hear the resolution...
Gspot does not open the files. Still waiting to hear from my son, but I guess he is partying.
Here's what MediaInfo reports for the clip linked to above (just for reference):

Gspot does not read mts you need Mediainfo.
Not sure if this thread is still "active".
Got the same problem with my 1080p 50fps source files.
Can edit in 50p per above but cannot find a way to export with chosen bitrate the 50p timeline material.
Can you help as I've tried everything !
Also in the current version of Premiere there is not pre-setting export for 1080 50p available. But you can still export with 50p. Goto to "HDTV 1080 25p", I don't know the exact title, and then change the FPS setting to 50 fps.
You can save this settings for further usage as a custom export setting.
Regards from Germany
sorry I never managed anything either
