Why does cs5.5 not support mts files ?
It does, but MPEG stuff never worked in trial versions. That has never been any different. In theory these limitations have been lifted in CS5.5, but you still get yoursrelf in a pinch here: Because you have CS5 on the system, the CoDecs cannot differntiate between the two versions and are tied to the serialized version still. So basicalyl to get this working you would have to deactivate CS5 and possibly reinstall the CS5.5 trial to unlock the CoDecs there. On the other hand, this might again pose a problem if you then attempt to activate CS5 again and nothing works there... So in a way, it's a lose-lose proposition for you. If you feel adventurous, feel free to try (and yeah, I know it sucks). Otehrwise you should be able to perfectly gauge new features liek the warp Stabilizer using a converted Quicktime movie just as well...
Many thanks for your reply.
Yet another 'feature' that does not work on the triall despite adobe chat staff saying that the trial is not limited in any way apart from the 30 days.
I wanted to test the warp stabilser with my own mts footage
How are you supposed to test a trail version with a view to purchase if bits dont work!
I am 50/50 whether to upgrade, things like this turn me off.
Come on Adobe - get this fixed please
You could always transcode your footage. For Adobe to include the codecs and other features that are not activated with the trial would require renegotiating the contracts with the folks that license their products to Adobe. It's not just a matter if intentionally turning off a feature.
