Premiere pro mpg import error (dimesion sizes wrong)

Nov 07, 2016

Copy to clipboard

Copied

The files came from this camera: JVC Everio GZMG21

Video showing error and steps to reproduce:

Sample file linked below...

Steps to Reproduce Bug:

1. Import mpg. Here's a sample: https://mega.nz/#!rUxh1STT!zi3WNGu-SD1cAPCle-WmQAflccvxfA92PVyXT_SEYGE

2. Then link the media to be able to see it.

3. After linking media notice the properties are wrong, it is imported as 540x480 instead of 720x480

Results:

The file imports with the wrong dimensions and no setting that you change will correct it: sequence settings, project settings, etc. At rendering time, of course, it renders the wrong sizes.

How it is imported does not matter: drag and drop into timeline or into project panel, drag and drop into timeline, or file>import..

This occurs every time with these mpg's. They do not work in cc but they do work in cs6 if MainConcept's Rovi Totalcode is installed. I've tried it in all versions of CC.

This is someone else complaining about the same issue, but with .mod files: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1290526 You will see some screenshots there.

Please let me know what troubleshooting steps I can take now to try and at least workaround the problem. I don't want to have both cs6 and cc installed, and the Rovi TotalCode trial has a watermark so I'd like to figure this out before I run out of options. I have more than 100 video clips I need to import and edit. I've submitted as a bug to adobe but was hoping for a solution in the meantime.

Ok, I've tried importing through the media browser and the result was the same.

Do you mean if I'm importing directly from the camera? I don't actually have the camera anymore, I just have the files.

You might need to locate a Demuxing app first.

Are you thinking demuxing all the files and then importing it? Any particular software you recommend?

If you have CS6 batch export all files to dv avi and use those.

Hmm, that batch export from cs6 sounds like the fastest solution. Of course that would mean I would need to buy the totalcode software ($300) just for this. I'll consider it while looking for other options.

Meanwhile... How lossy do you think the final, exported file would be?

Everio SD camera's have always been a pita.

Are you using the trial?

If you have a subscription, CS6 is part of that subscription.

Meanwhile... How lossy do you think the final, exported file would be?

DV avi is the best.

this might also be of help;

Thanks!

I have the subscription for adobe cc. What I meant is that for cs6 to import the mpg I needed to install the trial of the software mentioned above: rovi total code, otherwise I'd get an error while importing into cs6 ("error decompressing audio or video" I think).

It seems that the best solution has been to drop these files in CS6, interpret to widescreen, the export as avi. Thanks for the suggestions Ann Bens!
