Premiere CAN'T handle h264 MOV?
on May 8, 2017 at 1:34:13 pm

I had this problem with my old Workstation, and it's the same with a new one.

...So, this has to be a Software Issue.
I have recorder (with OBS) some .mov video files with h264 encoding.

Premiere couldn't import them (it took audio only) without Quicktime installed, and it's ok.
But then, when I import them, it CAN'T handle them.

In no way.
It doesn't do playback at all, you can't work with them. It shows 1-2frames every 3-5 seconds.
It's as like it can't read them properly.

And I don't even know how to explain it more in-depth, it seems quite a simple fact to describe: It's impossibile to work with them...
And I honestly don't know what to do, except encode them with handbrake, since even AME will show infinite amount of hours to handle them.

Quicktime's implementation of h.264 has always ben bad. For now just transcode the footage, and in the future go with mp4/h.264.

Indeed...! Thank you very much.

I'm remuxing the files now. OBS actually create horrible desynchs while recording in mp4, so I'll change my workflow.

H.264 is more suited for final delivery than for editing, but Premiere can certainly handle it. What are your computer specs?

Just helped someone on another forum that was having issues with OBS files in Premiere. By default, the OBS recordings were using VARIABLE Frame Rate, which Premiere doesn't like. Use the free HandBrake app to convert the recording to CONSTANT Frame Rate, then edit the new file in Premiere.

Thanks

I thought I read an adobe post on OBS where he forced recording in constant frame rate without needing to transcode.

I'll check it out!
Though I can't find the option in OBS Studio for now, I'll search throughfully.
