importing files

Can anyone tell me why I can't import .wmv files in premier cs4 when I am on a mac yet can import them easily when on my pc?

RE: importing files


I don't think you can run .wmv file on a Mac without some kind of converter.

My guess is that you need to convert them to .mpg or something that a Mac can read.

I know this was the case in the past, I'm not up to date on the new Macs.


RE: importing files

When I've had WMV files, I'm usually placed them into Windows Moviemaker and immediately exported them as lossless AVI files.

Anything can eat AVI files, but only PCs can eat WMV files.

Good luck!
