Hi,

I've shot a number of footages on my P4P a week ago and currently trying to compile them using Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017.

Some of the footage gets imported without issues, some have the File Import Failure : The File has no audio or video streams - (A low level exception occured in ImporterMPEG (Importer:39)) Please refer to the screenshot.

It seems to happen to certain files only, i have no idea why...

Can anyone please advice?

I have tried using ffmpeg and handbrake to convert the MOV file to MP4 and then import into Premiere Pro again and it works... but the conversion process have degraded the video quality tremendously... from the 800++MB MOV file the converted MP4 file is less than 30MB...

I would prefer to import the original MOV file straight from the SD card into Premiere in order to retain the quality...

Please help!!!

Jesse

You can try the best DJI Phantom 4 Pro video converter.

> This 4K h.265 converter enable you to transcode video of Phantom 4 Pro in H265 to a format more suited to editing videos even on lower spec PCs and keep original 4K resolution. It needs a lot more space for transcoding.

> This software supports resizing video of Phantom 4 Pro in H265 from 4K to 1080p (full HD) and simultaneously save it with editable format like ProRes. In This will speed up a lot of processing the video in the editing software and also lesser PC powerful can work good.

> Join multiple Phantom 4 Pro H265 videos into one. If you format the SD card in fat 32 the video recording limit in size stops at 4GB or so, then because of the file system tree instead of a single video you will find more multiple videos each of 4GB, to merge 2 or more Phantom 4 Pro H265 format files in one final video, you can also apply Brorsoft Video Converter with its "Merge into one file" function.

> Convert P4P H.265 to Windows Media Player, YouTube, etc friendly format for easier playback and sharing. Not all media players yet support fully the H.265, YouTube and Windows Media Player do not support h.265. It is useless to play or send a video of Phantom 4 Pro in H265 on Windows Media Player, Youtube because it is not recognized. This powerful Phantom 4 Pro h.265 decoder brings you a smooth H.265 conversion process.

I'm using the 2017 update (which it appears you have) and h.264 and I have not had any problems since the update. I've tried both MP4 and .MOV Files with the same results. No problems. I usually shoot in 4K\60fps (so I can zoom and other effects) but have also done 1920\120 (slow motion) and have not had any issues there either. I always create proxies immediately when importing so I can scrub smoothly. I have not however used H.265 so that may be the variable.

I like the converter idea and may try that as well.

Hmm... something wrong with my PC then? I'm using h.264 only too... Not sure if reinstalling windows/premiere pro would solve the issue...

I'm using h.265 and to import them to Premiere CC 2017, you just need to rename .mov files to .mp4 and drag and drop into your project. No conversion needed

I've had this happen before, I believe it's an error that occurs in the go app while recording corrupting the file, I don't know of any fix.

Same appened to me after a premiere update. And even after a downgrade the problem remais. It appears olso in older premiere project so now many old works are corrupted! It's a mess!
Many says to convert the clip with an external source but that's crazy!
The strange think to me, is that premiere refuse just some files not all! I.E. I got two files shoted the same day with the same settings and almost same size.....one is good but not the other....there's no apparent reason for that. And it doesn't happen always....yesterday night I was working with file n°6 and today I got the error message.....
I'm going crazy!

Who knows why, but I re-named the files that wouldn't import and it corrected the problem however, that caused the other 6 clips not to import.
This is not an issue with P4P shooting 4k h.264, but rather an issue with Adobe Premiere itself.

The "problem clips" import without any issue into DaVinci Resolve 14 and 15 beta without any problem.  The only reasonwhy I just started to use Adobe again, is because DaVinci is a little lagging with 4k video unless one "optimizes" the video.  But using DaVinci optimizer creates huge 350GB cache files from 20GB of original footage, so that's hurtful.  But the optimizer kicks butt and makes the 4k video liles play back 1000% flawlessly!

My video clips were shot at on the P4P Advanced at 4k 1920x1080p 29 fps h.264, Windows8.1 operating system.

I also just found out that I could render and save the "problem clips" using DaVinci, and then they would import into Premiere.

I've had exactly the same issues with some files. I have found that I can transcode the files using AME (why AME will open them when Premiere won't, I don't know):

THIS IS THE FIX...   I completely re-installed my operating system and software twice before finding the simple fix.  Make sure you uncheck this box.
