adobe premiere help please
I bought adobe premiere pro and I really want to make a AMV. Of course I have no idea what I am doing and when I tried to upload a video onto premiere considering it was .avi, i get a "unsupported audio" error. Anyone know how to fix and help me learn how to use premiere pro?
From my quick research, premeire supposedly has a problem with DivX and some Mpeg-4 stuff in general. Fucking weird. Anyway, you can get around the problem by converting the videostream into uncompressed AVI.
Problem is, this takes up a looooooooot of fucking space. Like 60min of video uncompressed would hit 80 gigs easy. So this is only acceptible with small files, or if you have 'Hacker Hard Drives' as Sakura_Chan would say... equating up to a terabyte or more.
Another possible workaround (and you really want to try this one first) is to change the fourCC code in the AVI file to DIVX. If the file is encoded with DivX or Xvid, supposedly the fourCC code needs to say DIVX in all caps on the AVI file's header to work. You can change the fourCC code header to DIVX with this program here.
