I have Premiere Pro CS5 for Mac - a fully activated version. In the past I have edited footage from both my Canon EOS 550D (I think that's a Rebel T2i in the US) and also from my Panasonic TM300 camera (AVCND format) without problem.
However, after a break of a few weeks, I've come to import some new footage from my Panasonic camcorder and I'm getting this error:
"The file has an unsupported compression type."
From looking around various forums, I see that this is a common error with users who have yet to activate their product. My product is fully activated. I can open the footage in iMovie and it plays successfully in VLC Player. I can also import .MOV files from my Canon successfully. I have tried opening a project that I was working on in December which used AVCHD footage from the Panasonic and this no longer will open - I get:
"This project contained a sequence that could not be opened. No sequence preview preset file or codec could be associated with this sequence type."
I'm guessing this is a codec issue - files from the Panny open in After Effects, just not in Prem Pro.
Can anybody advise how I might go about resolving this?
Aha, yes, I'm on 5.0.3 and the symptoms described on your link do indeed look familiar - looks like it's going to take a while to fix it, so I'll have a go at this when I can, but for now I'm just going to have to use iMovie (shudder) as I've to get this footage to a client for the morning (and it's 00:50 here in London already!).
Thanks for your help.
