The codec. Chances are that this material is not intended to be edited but only played. If the codec is not acceptable to PR, your only options are to edit with a consumer package like WMM or convert to an editable format externally.
I agree with Harm - likely a CODEC issue with that/those file(s). If you would run one through MediaInfo (free), and post the results, the cause will likely be revealed in those results.
Well, i have an iphone 2gs, and it has a video recorder on it. I have used it before to shoot small videos and thenn upload the footage into Premier pro, it has worked everytime but this time it isnt working. The clips themselves are :
Frame width : 288
frame height 384
data rate: 1244 kbps
total bitrate: 1291kbps
frame rate: 14 frames per second
As it stands the movies are just saved as quicktime movies in "my videos"
Surely there must be a way to fix this, the movies are just short clips from a boat trip that i went on, recorded by me, so there is no reason for them to not work
I have ran one of the files through that media thing, the outcome was this:
MPEG - 4 (Base Media) 2.48mb, 16s 533ms
1 video stream : MPEG - 4 Visual
1 Audio Stream: AAC
First video stream
1. 205kbps, 288 by 384 at 14.649fps, MPEG - 4 Visual
First Audio Stream
45.8kbps, 44.1 khz, 2 channels, aac (lc)
that was the results, clearly they are available, it just isnt recognising it
please someone help as i am trying to put a video together for my mum
could someone please suggest something as i see no reason why adobe shouldnt recognise my files as they are MP4 format. Maybe when i open a new project i am opening up in the wrong format, would that have anything to do with it?
See #1. It has been answered and the suggestion how to solve your issue is right there.
I hate to ask this, but do you have Quicktime installed? If so, what version?
The only time I've seen that error is if the native Pr Quicktime importer doesn't recognize the format and/or codec and Quicktime isn't installed on the system.
Lol, believe it or not, i have just done a system restore and completely overlooked having quicktime installed, thanks for pointing that out though, it works perfectly now and i have just completed my video
