I've had huge problems with HDV and Adobe Premiere Pro. I shoot with a Canon XH-A1 in HDV mode. I used to edit by importing the Canon XH-A1 HDV footage into Premier Pro (CS6), the software can recognize my XH-A1, but the output HDV footage seems to be hard for editing within it. Searching from Google and got some recommended solutions for editing Canon XH-A1 HDV files in Adobe Premiere Pro.
Since Adobe PP can’t read and ingest the HDV files from Canon XH-A1 well, a straightforward fix is to convert Canon XH-A1 capture to Premiere Pro much more compatible format. Download and install the app Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac.
It is a top Canon HDV Converter. It can help you convert Canon XH-A1 as well as HV20/HV30/HV40 HDV files to MPEG-2 for Adobe Premiere Pro, ProRes 422 for Final Cut Pro, AIC for FCE/iMovie, DNxHD for Avid Media Composer on Mac(Yosemite and El Capitan included).
