okay. well we just bought the canon vixia HFS100 video camera. it saves the video to a memory card. <BR> <BR>so we took some video this weekend. and you can view it on the camera. but i plug the card into my card reader and it cant figure out what type of file it is.. so i pulled the cables out and plugged the camera directly into my computer hoping to import video into adobe premiere elements 4 using the capture media... and it cant even find the camera. but you can open the folders and view the files which worked exactly like the card reader. any suggestions on how to get the video into my computer? ive tried windows movie maker to hoping i could import. no such luck

have you tried importing the files to premiere from the card folder?

lfrider92 11-17-2009 7:34 PM

i have, and all it imports is a single image from the very beginning of the video, (supper blury so i think its the beginning, person sitting in a chair with a handle in the water so i assume its the beginning)

lfrider92 11-17-2009 7:37 PM

not sure if this helps. but when you open the folder the view the files. there are several files that are between 12,000 KB and 65,000 KB (my guess is the clips from the winch pulls) but they are MTS format. never even heard of it. and my computer doesnt recognize them

lfrider92 11-17-2009 8:51 PM

doesnt support it. thanks though.. getting bugged by this. spend a grand on a camera. and cant even throw a quick edit together

steve_b 11-17-2009 9:38 PM

Search YouTube. Type the camera model, comma, Premier Elements 4. <BR>May find help..

Premiere elements 4 does not support AVCHD. Check out this link for some software solutions for you. It does look like if you upgrade to version 7 you shouldn't have any problems though. If you know someone with a Mac with imovie or FCP you could capture the files with that and then just copy the Quick Time files over. <BR> <BR><a href="http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/403/kb403297.html" target="_blank">http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/403/kb403297.html</a> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by brinks on November 18, 2009)

If you want to convert the ".mts" files, check out this free HD converter from CNET: <BR> <BR><a href="http://download.cnet.com/Free-HD-Converter/3000-2194_4-10916061.html?tag=mncol" target="_blank">http://download.cnet.com/Free-HD-Converter/3000-2194_4-10916061.html?tag=mncol</a> <BR> <BR>It will convert ".mts" (ACVHD) format to any non-HD formats.
