Please, no one lecture me on the inferiority of MTS files! But I cannot get old MTS files from a 2016 project to relink to the existing project file in Premiere Pro 2020.

The dialog box reads "The selected file cannot be linked because it's type (Video) does not match the original file's type (Audio & Video).

As you might guess, the original file does possesess audio and video. Obviously, I am running into something beyond my expertise.

I would appreciate help from anyone please!

Thank you in advance, Connie

You gave few details about the OS you are on, so for now i can only guess. But, the first thing that comes to my mind is this: Changes to Dolby Decoding and Encoding Support

Thank you Averdahl!

Sorry! I am on macOS Catalina version 10.15.5. Working in Premiere pro (tried 2020 and 2019 versions) on a MacBook Pro mid 2015.

I will try what you linked.

P.S. the link led to an announcement about no longer supporting Dolby but the sub link to use further for help led to a Page Not Found

I am on macOS Catalina version 10.15.5. Working in Premiere pro (tried 2020 and 2019 versions)

 

O.k, if you are on Catalina Dolby is not the issue. 🙂

 

Q1:

If you create a brand new project in Premiere Pro 2020, can you import any of the AVCHD files or do you get an error this time as well? (To import, use the Media Browser in Premiere Pro since it is more convinient.)

 

Q2:

How are you working with your mid 2016 project in Premiere Pro 2020, iow how do you open it? Do you double click on the mid 2016 project file or are you creating a brand new project in Premiere Pro 2020 and then go to Premiere Pro > Import and then import your mid 2016 project file?

 

To open old projects it is always recommended to create a brand new project and the import the old project into the new project. Worth trying! 🙂

Thank you Averdahl for that suggestion!

Did just that, created new project and imported 2016 entire project - and it will work for the first one or two files (same file type - MTS) then it will stop working and give me the "The selected file cannot be linked because it's type (Video) does not match the original file's type (Audio & Video)" message again. 

 

Discouraged,

Connie

In the 2016 project, did you ever use the Modify Clip dialog to change the audio of some/all clips from let´s say Stereo to Mono?

Great question, no. I had footage coming from differnt parts of the US. That all relinked.

Most of it however was shot with the same prosumer Canon camera. The relinking has worked and then not worked with footage from that same camera. 

Thanks, Connie

Rather than Linking your footage, you could try using Replace instead.  Might help.  Might not.

Thank you again for this suggestion, however that doesn't work either. Premiere pro will only import the video. Tested these clips...they do have audio ;-(
