1080 50p Workflow within Adobe Premiere Pro CS4/CS5/CS6/CC

Summary: Want to import/edit 1080 50p AVCHD .mts footages in Adobe Premiere Pro without rendering; check out the guide to learn how to convert 1080 50p MTS to Premiere Pro compatible MOV/MPEG-2 video format.

I did a few searches online but didn’t find a solid answer about 1080/50p MTS and Adobe Premiere Pro workflow. The source (Canon XA20) I have generates 1080/50p files (among other things). File extension is MTS on the card itself and m2ts once copied on the hard drive. When I want to work with these 1080/50p files in Premiere Pro CS5, I have an issue.

The .m2ts files are not even displayed in the media browser when I select "all supported files" in the appropriate directory;
The .mts files on the card are displayed but a double click on them generates an error message "file format not supported";
Same error when doing drag & drop from the media explorer to the project windows- the project is empty is and I tried with or without sequence in it.

Some guys recommend using CS5.5, CS6 or the latest CC7 to edit those 1080 50p AVCHD clips, but when I use Adobe PP CS6 trial version to import 50p MTS files, still no luck. Luckily, I get some tech support from Adobe forum and know that the 1080 50p .MTS videos are not standard AVCHD format and thus are not acceptable by editing software. So, it would be hard work to edit 1080 50p MTS in Adobe Premiere Elements, Premiere Pro, iMovie and more NLE apps.

The easy workaround to import and edit 1080 50p MTS/M2TS in Premiere Pro is to convert the AVCHD MTS files to Premiere Pro preferred editing format.
