Panasonic and Premiere-Edit Panasonic AVCHD .mts videos in Premiere

Wanna edit Panasonic AVCHD .mts videos in Premiere? In this article, you will know how to smoothly import Panasonic AVCHD footage to Premiere CS6/CC.

Premiere offers a comprehensive guide to tell users how to solve Panasonic AVCHD issues in Premiere.

Potential symptoms:

No audio track appears when placing the audio on the timeline

The most common reason for this symptom is that the footage was not imported properly. See Proper way to import footage.

There can also be a conflicting codec installed on the system. Be sure to uninstall any third-party codecs.

There is an audio track but no audio is heard during playback of entire clip

This symptom is another instance where importing the file properly is the best step. See Proper way to import footage.

Double-check the Audio Mixer to make sure the Audio Track you are working with is not muted or turned low enough to prevent audio playback.

Also, create a copy of Bars and Tones to place on the timeline. This step provides a tone to determine whether your audio hardware is set up properly.

The video is choppy or non-responsive during entire clip

This symptom can be a sign that Adobe Premiere Pro can’t get the CPU processing power required to play back in real time. Make sure that your system meets the system requirements found here.

Additionally, make sure that there are adequate resources available to Adobe Premiere Pro. When working on your footage, keep additional programs to a minimum.

While scrubbing the timeline, the video freezes up or the audio stops

This symptom can be related to a known issue covered below.

Known issues

There is a known issue for Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. AVCHD files that are spanned can cause the system to freeze up while scrubbing the software. Also, the audio can sometimes disappear after a set amount of playback.

A spanned file has an extended duration, wherein the camera creates separate video files. These files don’t appear to be separate when imported into Adobe Premiere Pro, only if looking at the video files in Finder or Windows Explorer.

There is an update for CS6 – 6.0.4 that resolves the issue. Update CS6 to the latest version. Alternatively, Adobe Premiere Pro CC does not have this issue.

The best workarounds are to make sure that when recording, the video files are short enough that the camera doesn’t use the file spanning feature. Also, transcoding the footage to a different format resolves the issue as well. (Source: https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/kb/audio-video-glitches-avchd.html)
