    Importing MTS Files into organizer


      I have about 70 files that are .MTS without the directory structure. When I important them into organizer, they are vertically stretched. How can I fix this?


      I have a feeling this question has been answered, but after 45 minutes of searching the forums I was unable to find it.

          Welcome to the forum.


          Unfortunately, you have posted to the Tips & Tricks sub-forum, which is basically a repository for articles on how to do things in Premiere, and gets very few "eyes." Maybe our MOD, Steve Grisetti, can move this out to the main forum, so that more can see it, and can help.


          I do not use MTS material, so am not an expert in this area. However, if footage is being stretched, or squeezed, it is usually an issue with the PAR (Pixel Aspect Ratio), and Premiere not picking up the flag for the footage correctly. See this ARTICLE for more background. Usually, one can use Interpret Footage in the Project Panel, to force Premiere to "see" the correct PAR.


          Good luck,
