Premiere Pro won't Support MKV Problems:

  • "How do I import an MKV file into Premiere Pro CS6? -Converting MKV for use with Adobe Premiere Pro- Gents, I normally receive my stuff in a format I can stick on Adobe Premiere Pro. MKV's are not compatible. What I want to do with the current project is take the MKV I have and convert it for use with Adobe Premiere Pro (on a PC and not on a MAC)."
  • "Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 MKV support?-Is there any way to get Adobe Premiere to support MKV files or it simply just doesn't support it?"
  • "How to open .mkv file in premiere pro 5.5-having trouble opening .mkv files."
  • "How to use .MKV and .ISO with Premiere Pro? They are not supported.-Hi all. My brother in-law sent us two .mkv videos and a DVD .iso he wants me to use in a video I am cutting for him. The only trouble is, I've no idea how to get them into a format PremPro can handle. I've searched and the only solutions I have found are infinitely complicated for me."
  • "Premiere Pro CS3 Importing Issues-I'm new to Premiere, and I've been having issues with a project that I am trying to start. I am running Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 on Windows Vista. I want to import a file that was originally a .mkv file. Because Premiere does not use .mkv files, I simply changed the file extension to .avi. The file is about 1.42 GB. But whenever I try to import the file as a .avi, my program freezes and I get a (Not Responding) error on the dialog box at the top of the program. When this happens I am always forced to close the program. Am I experiencing this simply because the files I am attempting to import are too big? Or is it something else?"
