Question: XAVC MXF files can’t be read in Premiere Pro CS6
"I’m currently feeling so frustrated over XAVC MXF import issues with Premiere Pro CS6. I’m intending to import one of my clients’ XAVC MXF footage from a Sony camcorder to PP CS6. Every time I try it read the various audio files fine, but refused to import the video stream, and gave me a ‘generic error’. Why does this happen? Is there anything that I missed? Does that mean I have to convert XAVC MXF to an intermediate codec so CS6 can recognize them? Any help of advice would be greatly appreciated."
