Importing .mts AVCHD video into Premiere Pro CS5.5, HELP!


I am new on Adobe forums and I nedd a question answered.

I have seen that there is no definite answer on how to import .mts files from my Canon Vixia HFR20 to Premiere Pro CS5.5.

I get “The file has an unsupported compression type” message. For now I convert the videos to .AVI but i would why would I continuosly convert them?

I bought the camera mainly for the HD, so help soon would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks in Advance,



P.S: I have a PC to put that in mind…
