BPAV files to Adobe Premiere Pro CC/CS6/CS5/CS4 workflow

Summary: Having the trouble importing BPAV files to Adobe Premiere Pro for smooth editing? Look no further, find the best solution here!

I have camera original stuff on a disk in a BPAV-folder. When I import video and audio of the raw BPAV clips to Adobe Premiere Pro, I found the MP4 within the BPAV file is unreadable to Premiere. I’m eager to work out the solution.

Searched the web and I tried to follow these instructions. I got to know that Sony XDCAM EX camcorders write MP4 files into a folder named BPAV. In Adobe Premiere Pro, importing BPAV sources with Media Browser is usually workable. Note: If you want to transfer BPAV folder to a hard disk, you need to copy the entire BPAV folder and its contents, not just one MP4 file at a time. Or the file would be corrupted.

Well, for those who can’t import BPAV files to Premiere Pro for any unknown reason, an alternative solution is to convert BPAV files to Adobe Premiere Pro more compatible format like MPEG-2, which will bring you a fast and native workflow. So how can we transcode BPAV to a file type that Adobe Premiere can handle? Which software we can apply? Here the top option is Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac.
