    Cannot open AVI files from my Digital compact camera in Premiere Elements!

    zicitron2011

      Desperately need help! I am new to video editing and I am having a tough time editing my videos (which are in AVI format coming from my Nikon P5100 digital compact camera) in Adobe Premiere Elements 9.

       

      The Organiser recognizes the AVI files and plays them OK.

       

      However when I drag them to the editing window in Premiere Elements, I get a pop up window entitled "Generic Failure" and the message is "This type of file is not supported, or the required codec is not installed."

       

      How do I go from there? Do I need to convert the AVI files? If yes, into which format and through which software?

       

      Thanks for help!

       

      regards,

      Ali
