Sorry if this has been covered in another thread!
I want to import 2 pieces of footage that were shot on an HD camera, into my current project. The clips are .avi (according to the properties), but say Video Clip when you hover the mouse over them. When I import them to premiere, it says "unsupported format or damaged file." This i dont understand as the clips play in Media Player just fine.
Can anyone help me with what i should do to make it possible to import these files. I heard someone mention 'downgrading' the footage??
thanks for any help,
