Importing HDV tape - confusing file extensions

I'm importing HDV footage into Premiere and it's creating files with .ac3 and xmp extenstions. The imported files load into Premiere and I can see video and audio. Where is the .mov file? 

I'm just trying to archive the footage in highest quality for future use, and need it to be accessable to other editing programs (Resolve, FCPX, Avid).  Any ideas?

How are you importing?  Or are you capturing?  2 different things.   xmp files are metadata files and you can turn them off in the preferences: media.    Don't think I've done any capturing from hdv in premiere (luckily haven't had to work with this format for a long time - it's not a fun format) , but had to do some work on a legacy project a few months ago with minidv tapes and premiere captured as quicktime files with uncompressed audio embedded in the quicktime (Hopefully I'm remembering correctly - I can check if it's important).

Hi there, Marcus,

Which OS are you using? If on macOS, here is a KB doc for you: https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/multi/upcoming-changes-GPU-DV-HDV-support.html#ChangestoDVHDVsup...

 

Thanks,

Try to play it in DR, FCPX and Avid. If the video codec is listed as MPEG 2 I think it will be OK.
