How to import .mov footage taken by Nikon D5300 to Adobe Premiere Pro without rendering? By converting Nikon mov to Premiere friendly format, you can easily get the smooth workflow with D5300 and Premiere Pro on Mac (Mavericks included).

Nikon D5300 makes fantastic quality images and weighs almost nothing, so it's a pleasure to carry it everywhere. Compared to the pro cameras I often haul, the D5300 feels as if it's hollow, which is a very good thing. It can record H.264/MPEG-4 stored as .MOV video files which ensures high quality.

As the H.264 codec 
is highly compressed, so can not easily and directly import and edit Nikon D5300 mov files on Mac with Adobe Premiere Pro. If you want to import  Nikon D5300 MOV video to Premiere Pro on Mac for editing, you are likely to meet all kinds of problems due to the compatibility issue. So how can we import Nikon D5300 MOV footage to Premiere Pro? Here are two solutions:

Method 1.

Right click your MOV footage; rename the .mov files with .mpg extension. This "fools" Adobe Premiere Pro into thinking it's a different codec.

It works in this way; however, your footages didn't turn into another codec so that Premiere Pro may still does something wrong during editing. And if you didn't do a backup before changing the extension, it really ruins your valuable footage.

Besides, here's another problem: what if you have hundreds of clips to be edited? Rename all of them could be such a pain!

So here comes the second way to let Nikon D5300 import to Adobe Premiere Pro smoothly.

Method 2.

To crack the obstacle, the best way is to convert the H.264 MOV from Nikon D5300 to MPEG-2 or MOV which have been designed to work especially well as high-quality, high-performance editing codecs for Premiere Pro. Come and meet this Canon MOV to Premiere Pro Converter which would be a vital part of your workflow. You can order a license directly, or free download a trial version here.

Step 1. Connect your Nikon D5300 to Mac with USB cable or use card reader to transfer the MOV files to hard drive disk; do not forget to keep your camcorder on.

Step 2. Run this Nikon D5300 MOV Converter, click the "Add video" button to load individuals mov videos; or click "Add from folder" to load the entire folder.


Step 3. Choose editing program compatible format.

Click the "Profile" option, you will find various video formats sorted by various programs/devices. For Adobe Premiere Pro, it should be "Adobe Premiere > MPEG-2(*.mpg)" or "MOV (AVC)(*.mov)".

Why Premiere Pro and After Effects doesn't like Sony EX3 XDCAM files

Got Problems importing Sony PMW-EX3 xdcam mp4 footage into Premiere Pro/After Effects for further editing? Look no further, follow the easy workaround to achieve your goal smoothly.


Question:

I recently purchased two PMW-EX3 cameras for use here at my work, and I thought that I had them up and running perfectly but recently ran into a problem importing footage. When I shoot anything over around 13:40:00 long, PP CS4 will not import the entire length of the clip, only the first 13:40:00 (give or take a minute or two). When I play back the clips on the camera or in Sony's clip browser software I can play the entire duration of the clip. When I'm in PP using the Media Browser window to get to my footage, it even shows me the correct duration of the clip in the Duration column, but when I copy it over into my project bin, only that first 13 and a half minutes makes it. And a similar problem importing the files from EX3 into After Effects. AE only imports the first MP4 file of your clip and not the rest.

I've searched lots of other forums, and while I've seen various issues with importing XD EX footage into PPro and AE, I haven't seen this best solution yet

Sony PMW-EX3 can shoot XDCAM EX MP4 recording with true 1920x1080 resolution on dual SxS cards. As the XDCAM mp4 footage still cannot fully supported by some video editors like Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects on Mac. So if you are using Premiere and AE for editing just like the above user, the best workaround for us is to convert Sony PMW-EX3 mp4 to Adobe Premiere Pro/After Effects most compatible MPEG-2 format, and it will make the editing work much smooth and easier. 

At first, you need to find a third party program to do EX3 files to MPEG-2 transcoding. As far as I konow, the best hd video converting program is Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac, a powerful XDCAM Converter for Premiere/AE, which is use-to-use, capable of converting XDCAM video to various formats for editing with Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, iMovie or FCE on Mac, and supports batch renaming painlessly. Download it here and get to konw the detailed steps as below.

Guide on transcoding Sony EX3 XDCAM to MPEG-2 for Premiere Pro and After Effects editing on Mac

Step 1: Install and run the best Sony XDCAM Converter for Mac. Click the “Add Video” or "Add from folder" button to import .mp4 files from the Sony EX3 camcorder. Join mp4 clips via checking the “Merge into one” box.



Step 2: Hit the Format box and select Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas --> MPEG-2(*.mpg) as output format for editing EX3 XDCAM video in Premiere Pro and After Effects natively.



Step 3: Click the “Settings” icon to do some audio, video parameter settings like video bitrate, frame rate, audio sample rate, audio channel, etc. (Optional)

Step 4: Click the "Convert" button under the preview window, the Mac XDCAM Converter will start the conversion from EX3 to Adobe Premiere Pro/Adobe After Effects immediately.

After the conversion, you will be able to get the output files via clicking on “Open” button effortlessly. Afterwards, you can import Sony EX3 MP4 footages to Premiere Pro CS and After Effects for further editing easily.

Down-convert Panasonic GH2 MTS footage from 1080p to 720p for editing in FCP/Premiere

Summary: In this article, you can learn the best way to convert Panasoni GH2 AVCHD MTS to a file that FCP/Premiere can recognize on Mac(Mavericks 10.8 included) with downsizing 1080p HD video to 720p.



                                     


Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 updates the highly acclaimed if rather pricey GH1 Micro Four Thirds system camera. As such the GH2's styling is closer to that of a baby DSLR than its sibling's, the GF2 compact camera form. While stylistically similar, its size is roughly a third of the size of Olympus' Four Thirds E-5 DSLR, and closer in fact to that of a bridge camera. Except unlike a bridge camera, the Panasonic's added appeal is the ability to swap the lens in use. Therefore it's fair to say that for those who like the feel of a DSLR but not the attendant bulk, the GH2 is potentially a very attractive proposition. It's in effect a DSLR 'lite'.
