How do I import my P2 files into Adobe Premiere? My camera isn’t even recognized when I hook up the firewire 800 cable to my Macbook. The camera says 1395 Device Disconnected. 1394 Host mode does not work either as per the instructions of the camera manual. Do I need to convert the MXF files to a recognizable format for Premiere?
Adobe Premiere Pro CC supports MXF ( P2 Movie: Panasonic Op-Atom variant of MXF, with video in DV, DVCPRO 50, DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO or AVC-I formats; Media eXchange Format; Avid MXF Movie, XDCAM HD Movie).
However, Adobe Premiere Pro CC still can’t totally support copied MXF video files. Up to now, Adobe Premiere Pro CC and CS6 seems to work fine if you import your P2 MXF footages directly from cameras or P2 card, but if you have already copied MXF recordings to your HDD or you download them from somewhere, the importing error may jump out.
The realizable workaround to get P2 MXF into Premiere Pro CC is to transcode P2 MXF to MPEG-2 or WMV.
