The format shows AVCHD Video (.MTS) - into Adobe Premiere Elements. This works just fine in Movie Maker, but it will not go into Adobe Premiere Elements. Can someone explain the best way to get my video into the editing software?

Q2: Editing AVCHD files with Adobe Premiere Elements 11

I currently use Adobe Premiere Elements 9.0 but there’s a big problem when I importing and editing my MTS files in the software. I know Premiere Elements 7.0 onward accepts MTS, but it’s not the truth based on my experience. Can anyone tell me how can I handle MTS in Premiere Elements smoothly?

    I'm new to Adobe Premiere Elements. I want to import some MTS clips to it for editing. But I got an error message "unsupported file type". Tried your suggestion by converting MTS to MPEG-2 before importing, the problem resolved quickly. It seems Adobe PE still can't support MTS files natively.

    I learnt that AVCHD can be supported by Premiere without problem. However, I got an error message finally. The only way I could choose was to turn to a third party program to transcode my videos. Thankfully, Brorsoft is much useful!
