Summary: If you have any issue when importing DivX/Xvid files to Adobe Premiere Elements, just follow this simple guide, which offers you a quick solution to DivX/Xvid and Premiere
"I just purchased Premiere 11, and it won't import an .avi xvid file. The codec is installed as reported by G-Spot. And the file imports to Win Movie Maker just fine. Any known problems here? Thanks"
Unfortunately, Premiere Elements cannot edit with all codec's in AVI file, and especially the delivery codec, like Xvid and DivX. Some users have had luck with imprting and editing those AVI videos in Xvid and DivX codec in the latest versions of PrE, but that is uncommon. Usually, the file will not be imported, but if it does, then there is usually Audio with no Video, or the Video is so bad, as to not be useful. As mentioned, some codec’s are designed for delivery-only, some can still be edited in NLEs, like MPEG-2 for Premiere Elements. Thus the fist step we need to do is to change DivX/Xvid to MPEG-2 so that Premiere Elements can afford well.
