I have quite a few AVI files here. Some are encoded with DivX, others some MPEG flavor. My problem is this:
- I can play the movies just fine in windows media player. All the necessary codecs must be installed.
- When I go into Premier, I am unable to load ANY of these movies. Every time I try, I get the message "Unsupported compression format".
Here is what I do:
- I start premier.
- It prompts me to create a new project. I just hit OK.
- I hit File->Open, navigate to the appropriate folder, double click the movie (they are all .AVI). After a brief delay, I get: "Unable to open that file. Files uses an unsupported compression format."
How can I load these files into Premier? What do I have to do to get Premier to recognize the formats? Keep in mind, I can play ALL these movies in Windows media player, and yet Premier can open NONE of them.
