comment Importing an unsupported file type into Premiere Pro CS5
Looks like ProRes is Apple only. So... what is a good codec to use for a Premiere Pro project. Lots of site say "it depends". I'm guessing it depends on Standerd vs. High definition, Film vs. Animation, processing speed of computer etc. Could anyone suggest a good all rounder codec to use for Premiere Pro projects?

comment Importing an unsupported file type into Premiere Pro CS5
Reading through several sites it seems that I should not convert to H.264. This is because H.264 is designed for delivery and capture. If H.264 is used for editing it will be very slow. Instead I should use a codec designed for editing.. Apple's ProRes might be an option, but I'm not sure this will work on a PremierePro/Windows system.

Thanks for that Darren. Not including a video codec, doh! I'm fairly new to all this. Could you suggest a not too lossy codec that works nicely with Premiere Pro? H.264 perhaps?

Thanks for your input :) They were generated on a Mac, so they do not have a file extension like files on windows. However I did try renaming them; I tried .mov, .mp4, and .avi. None worked - so it must be a codec issue.

I can re-encode the file as a dvd, then I am able to import it. I don't think this is the optimal solution though. To do this I use the following command: ffmpeg -i "Part I" -target dvd -aspect 16:9 -sameq part_i.mpg
