    Sony NEX-5N AVCHD 2.0 1080p50 and Premiere Pro/After Effects CS5.5

    sn5n Community Member

      I have a new Sony NEX-5N and have shot some test 1080p50 video using it.

       

      On my quest for some new editing/production software to close the loop I have just downloaded and installed a Trial Version of CS5.5 Production Premium.

       

      I am able to load my video files into Premiere Pro.

       

      However, when I attempt to open the Video File in After Effects, I recieve the following Error message:

       

      After Effects error: '00023.MTS' cannot be imported - this '.mts' file is damaged or unsupported.

       

      Perhaps this is a limitation of the Trial Version or perhaps a limitation of After Effects CS5.5.  Is anyone able to advise?

       

      As extra information I include below the TEXT output from MediaInfo for the file I am able to load into Premiere Pro CS5.5 but not After Effects.

       

      Thanks.
