Can't see WMV, AVI or FLV files in Media Browser

I am using Windows 10 on a Lenovo T52 Thinkpad with an NVidia graphics card.

I just installed Premiere Rush, and am trying to add a .WMV file to my media folder using the media browser. However, the .WMV file does not appear when I navigate to the folder containing the file.

If I change the file extension to .MOV or MP4, the file does appear, although there is an error message that it cannot load a preview (makes sense). However, .AVI and .FLV extensions do not.

Is there something else I need to install to be able to add .WMV, .AVI and .FLV clips?

Hi john.loo,Thanks for your interest in Premiere Rush.This is happening because the mentioned formats are not supported in Rush as of now.

Thanks! I had already gone down the Media Encoder route. Thought I saw .WMV as one of the supported formats

@mayjain,

 

The link to feedback isn't valid.  I'd very much like to give my feedback about the lack of support for .avi files (and .wmv etc).  Premiere Rush is being promoted as easy to use - sending us to Media Encoder isn't easy at all...

What a useless program. You can get free converters everywhere, yet Adobe won't include simple conversion codecs.
