How to get Divx/Xvid/MJPEG-AVI to Premiere Pro for editing

    Can Premiere Elements read .avi files? This article will give the best solution to importing and editing Divx/Xvid/MJPEG .avi in Adobe Premiere Elements 12/11/10 smoothly.

I have an AVI file into Adobe Premiere CS6, loading audio just fine, but no video. VLC Player can play the file perfectly (audio and video) so I clearly have the right codecs installed. I ran a program on the file, and it identified the video codec as "xvid". So, does Premiere Pro support .AVI(Xvid) format? Searching online, I got some tips and tricks for importing kinds of AVI to Premiere Pro CS6/CC. If you are in such trouble, just keep reading to get the way out.

In fact, AVI is a container format with different video audio codecs. In usual, Adobe Premiere Pro(Premiere Pro CC, CS6 included) won’t import DivX, Xvid, MJPEG encoded AVI videos, or AVI files that created by Windows Movie Maker; captured from VHS, CamStudio or other source smoothly. That’s way sometimes it doesn't show video, only the audio in Premiere Pro. To load AVIs to Adobe Premiere Pro smoothly, you will need to transcode AVI to a more “edit” friendly codec for Premiere Pro like MPEG-2.

Now I share the guide with you how to convert AVI video to Adobe Premiere Pro CC/CS6 friendly format using Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac. With it, you can effortlessly encode/re-encode AVI for smoothly importing and editing in various non-linear editing systems (NLE), including Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, iMovie and more. For Windows users, just get the equivalent Windows version Brorsoft Video Converter . So, what does the workflow look like?
