How do I import an MKV file into Premiere Pro CS6?

Welcome to the forum.

You can't do that.  You'll have to convert it into a different format first.  If you search the forum you'll find several discussions about MKV files and Premiere Pro.

Just convert MKV to a Premiere natively supported formats like MPEG-2. Some video converters like Brorsoft, Pavtube provide presets for Premiere.

Premiere Pro CS6 doesn't support MKV formats. To import MKV to Premiere Pro CS6, a recommended solution is to convert MKV to AVI.

I've been reading so many different forums on how to convert MKV to AVI. Finally, I summarised three solutions:

First one: HandBrake . This tool is a free and open-source multi-threaded transcoding app. It supports nearly any videos including MKV format and has Mac version and Windows version.

Cons:

1. HandBrake is too professional to handle for most people;

2. It doesn't support MOV as output format.

Second one: there are many third party software which supports converting MKV to AVI. I just test one of them. It's professional yet easy to use and the service is excellent. And there is a step by step guide about how to use this tool .

Cons:

1. Most of them are not free.

Third one: Online-Converter . This kind of converter does a great job on file conversion.

Cons:

1. Like most online converters, the free version of this tool only allows you to convert videos smaller than 100MB. It's too small for video conversion;

2.Your MKV video should be upload to the internet to be converted. This means the risk of pravite information leak is possible.

Hi Klepp0906,

If you would like this format to be supported in future versions of Premiere Pro, feel free to make a feature request: http://adobe.ly/feature_request

Thanks,

Kevin

Hey Kevin, following a question on a french Facebook page, I found out your thread (and answers) here, and wanted to know if this particular Feature request : To add support for .mkv or Matroska video format – Adobe video & audio apps  is useful (at the time you mentioned the feature request form, uservoice wasn't that big). And so far : Formats de fichier pris en charge par Premiere Pro mkv is not part of the read formats.
