Question about JVC Everio GZ-MG30 Camcorder
For the last few days, I have been researching different ways to be able to use .MOD files in Adobe Premiere CS3. I am using Windows XP Professinal. These files come from my JVC Everio Hard Drive Camcorder.
Apparently .MOD files are encoded with MPEG-2 video and AC3 audio. Most solutions suggest manually renaming the file to ".mpg" or ".M2V", which would allow you to load the video track into Premiere; but still the audio to come with it. To get the audio to come with it, you needed a certain .dll file that would allow Premiere to work with the embedded audio. You can download the .dll file here: < http://www.sfplayers.com/forums/amazonCameraFS100/ad2ac3dec.dll > .
_____I particularly liked the simple explanation I found here reguarding this: < http://eturkov.blogspot.com/2008/05/working-with-mod-files-in-adobe.html >
Now this is great and it works for the most part. However, when I try editing this video in Premiere, after using this method, I get this occasional red pixelated interference that destroys the video image for a couple seconds every minute or two. I uploaded a few pictures of what exactly this looks like here, < http://picasaweb.google.com/Bronze1052/UntitledAlbum#5302344189299128722 >
So the current solution to this problem works, that is if you don't mind having red pixels destroy your video every once in awhile. Can anybody help me with this!!??

use their free converter, i've been using it ever since i needed to convert files for my picky nokia 770. personally i convert the .mod files into .avi, and .mp3 (since premiere doesn't recognize the audio as an .avi) its pretty straightforward on how to set it, it even comes with its own codecs
