import canon avi into Premiere

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by xyzwdjonesabc, Jul 16, 2006.

  1. Is there a way to import avi files from a Canon Poweshot still camera
    recorded at 15 fps 320x240 into Premiere 6.5? I then want to export
    as mpeg for DVD. I am familiar with mpeg encoding (tmpenc) and DVD
    authoring. Is there a way to do this with the different frame rate
    and dimensions of this file from the usual DV/avi format?
    Thanks for the help.

    I would think that Premiere would be able to handle it. If not, take a look
    at VirtualDub (vDub). It's free and, with the right codecs, can handle
    anything. You might need to download and install appropriate codecs --
    there is a free pack, the name of which escapes me at the moment, it has, I
    think, a "K" in the name, but if you do a google search on "free codec
    download" you should be able to find it. With that, I suspect you'll be
    able to load your Canon AVIs into vDub and then save them again in DV-codec
    form (which Premiere treats as "native").

    Import, render as DV, edit/improve, export as DVD MPEG2 for authoring.
    Been there, done that.

  4. Thanks for the help. Premiere will not either open nor import it
    saying the file uses an unsupported compression format. Does this
    mean I need to find a new codec? If so how do I identify it and how
    do I load it?

    That's what it means. Try downloading Virtual Dub and seeing if it will
    load it. If not, try the free codec download I mentioned. I don't know
    what codec Canon uses -- if it's proprietary, you might need to check with
    Canon.
