Thread: Problem importing avi's from digital camera...

    Default Problem importing avi's from digital camera...

    For some reason Premier stopped letting me import my digital camera video clips. It worked for a while, then I moved some files around and decided to make a new project. When I went to import the clips it came up with this error:




    Now, you're probably thinking it is because I moved some premier files around, but I have since reformatted and reinstalled.

    Is there anything I can do to get premier to 'support' avi files for import?

    Thanks for any help or suggestions

    Anyone?

    If not,

    Is there any way I can convert these avi files into a format that would be accepted by premier? Although it seems redundant to do so, since they worked before, I guess it's the only way...

    I don't know what to suggest TBH :-/

    Can you load your DV clips into any other program?

    Are you sure you reinstalled the relavent codec after reformating?

    Hmm, what codec would I need for an avi import? I know I don't have all the codecs I did before the format, but I don't know which to install.

    The clips work fine in windows media player. It's just wierd. You don't think it would be some setting within premier do you?

    Thanks for the help thus far guys

    Just checking up...

    Still haven't gotten them to work.


    If not anything else, is there some program available to convert avi files into something that premier will for sure accept?

    I miss editing :(

    I have had the same problem. Re save the fille as a .mpg and it should work ( it worked for me). I used Windows media player to do this. Check out the link below for more info.

    Haha, I feel stupid for not thinking of that. It works!


    Now, since I have LOTS of clips, do you have any suggestions for mass renaming? It would be really frustrating to have to rename one by one...


    Thanks!

    This is easily achieved in the dos prompt. Go to your required directory and type



    rename *.avi *.mpg


    this will rename all the .avi files to .mpg in the directory
