Trying to create a MMA HL Video

Hey guys,

Hope all is well, I'm basically trying to create a MMA HL video. However, I seem to be having a problem getting footage for it. I've DL'd torrents, but it doesn't to want to process on my adobe premiere. Any tips would be much appreciated.

What format are the videos you're working with? I would convert to uncompressed AVI and work with that in premiere, a lot of the times you DL these fight vids and they end up being so heavily/intricately compressed that they will not work with the programs.

I have a great convertor if you're interested let me know, I'll send it to you through AIM.

I wanted to do a UFC 130 trailer. The file was a AVI, but it just won't work for some reason man. I've been trying all day. Is this converter called MPEG Streamclip at all? I just wonder where all these guys get there footage from to create these HL video's. I'd love to give more to the fans and sport by doing this you know

The convertor I have is riverpast video cleaner.

You're likely working with a compressed AVI file. My advice is to convert it to an uncompressed AVI file. If you downloaded this from anywhere and it's an AVI file I garauntee it's compressed in some way.

Also try installing these codecs and seeing if the files play in premier afterwards http://www.free-codecs.com/download/...codec_pack.htm get the full version. Install, follow instructions, see if after you install this you can use your vid, a lot of the times we don't have the proper codecs installed for our programs to decipher the information in the video so that you can edit it.

It could also be that the file is unusable, it happens from faulty/inconsistent compression, when I made my Silva vid I couldn't use the Maia fight or the Irvin fight cuz they were unreable by all my programs, it sucked :/

As for where people get their vids I dunno, I suppose torrents are a good place, but they have a multimedia section here as well with RS links and whatnot, I used that for my vid. They have a lot of links on this site, look around the multimedia videos section and use the search feature to find what you want.

Importing into premiere results in video & audio tracks not showing?

Try dling & installing codec packs.

Gspot will identify which you need.

Tried getting some files off of the site, but none of the links are working sadly. Bit crazy. I manage to get the audio running again on Adobe premiere once I'd downloaded the codecs, but alas no luck with the video.
