    Can PrE for Mac work with xVid .avi files?

    jumpyg2 Level 1

      Okay, I have some xVid .avi files and am wondering what I need to do to get Premiere Elements 9 for Mac to work with them. I can't seem to located the right codec and I don't know if that would even solve my problem. Yes, the codec would allow QuickTime to play the files, but would Premiere El be able to work with them?


      I was also thinking that I could use Super video converter (the free app) on my PC to convert these files to something else that Premiere Elements will like. I would guess .mov would be best. I really don't know if this would degrade the video, but I suspect it would.


      What do you guys think the best approach is?


      Thanks lot!
