I am attempting to import XAVC S/AVCHD footage from Sony a6300 camera. It seems the proper way to do this is to use the Media Manager window.
The issue I am having is that it does not detect it as anything other than files, and the all other options are greyed out in Directory viewer.
- If I try to import entire PRIVATE folder, I get “File Format not supported” errors.
- If I try to import M4ROOT or M4ROOT/CLIP folders I get “The imported reported generic error” for various metadata files like XML files.
Either way it seems I am loosing metadata. Transcoding is obviously not a good option as you would end up transcoding twice.
This is XAVC S/AVCHD format and uses MP4 container so all files are within M4ROOT folder and AVCHD is empty.
How can I import this format properly with Premiere Pro CC 2019 under Windows?
