Best Workflow: 1080p/720p MP4 files and Adobe Premiere Pro

Summary: Having the trouble importing 1080p/720p MP4 videos to Adobe Premiere Pro for smooth editing? Look no further, find the best solution here!

MP4 is mow becoming popular with camcorders and other digital cameras that record or save to hard drives or memory cards, due to the format takes up less space than other video formats and the video quality is high. Although, it claimed that Adobe Premiere has preset sequence settings for MP4 files that allow real-time editing, editing MP4 recorded format in Premiere Pro still seems fraught with difficulties for many users.

Q1: Does anyone know how to import livestreams mp4's into Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 without the audio going out of sync? There has to be a way to directly import livestream's mp4 without the audio going out of sync when played inside premiere.

Q2: When I import an MP4 clip into Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, I get the following message: "File Import Failure, 151_0010_01.mp4, Error Message, The file has no audio or video streams." I have the latest Quicktime, and I have reinstalled Premiere Pro CS6 a few times already. If anyone knows a fix for this, I would greatly appreciate it.

Normally, we would like to use Premiere Pro to edit MP4 videos, including YouTube MP4 videos, Sony DSC-M1 MP4, GoPro MP4 Camcorder videos, etc. in order to get better videos files. Well, Adobe Premiere Pro might not work with some MP4 files sometimes due to the codec issue or other reasons. In this case, to smoothly edit MP4 in Premiere Pro CS5/CS6, the easy workaround is to convert MP4 to MPEG-2 which is the best codecs with best results when working with Adobe. For this purpose, this article will guide through how to rewrap and transcode .mp4 to MPEG-2 .mpg in details.
