    How do I import .AVI files into Premiere Pro CS5?

    ZacHutchings Community Member



      I have just got myself a new Toshiba Camileo X100 and it shoots in 1080i60 and the raw video files are in an .AVI format there are also backups stored as thm.AVI. When I try to import these files into Premiere on my Macbook Pro I get an error message saying "codec missing or unavailable."




      What do I need to do to be able to Import these files? I have searched this forum and googled everything I could think of. One post suggested trying VLC so I tried it that way but my mp4 files that converted through VLC were only sound files instead of both video and audio. I need some sort of way to either convert or import a different way without losing much quality....
      This is really bothering me, help would be appreciated.
