Convert Garmin Virb 1080P MP4 files to Premiere Pro CC/CS6/CS5/CS4

Is there a fix for all of the issues while importing or playing Garmin Virb HD Action Cameras MP4 files in Premiere Pro?Actually, it's not so hard to do the trick. Read on and get the best solution here.

Garmin's Virb HD Action Camera is capable of recording 1080p high-definition video, 16-megapixel color images in burst- or time-lapse-triggering modes, and it can even capture full-res still photos while recording video. Its 9-element lens captures video with an ultrawide field of view. Plus, the camera's body is IPX-7 waterproof, and Garmin will be offering a wide range of mounts for hands-free operation while enjoying a variety of sports.

Well, any questions about it? Premiere Pro CS6 importing .mp4 from Garmin Virb shows "File Import Failure"?

"I have been trying to add a clip that I recorded on my Garmin Virb Elite into a sequence on Premiere. I have tried adding the GPS overlay to the clip in Virb Edit (Garmin's video editing software), exporting it as an mp4 and then importing it into Premiere. Unfortunately whenever I include the clip into my timeline, the GPS overlay has disappeared (speedometer, altimeter etc.). Is there any way getting it to work in Premiere (CS6), because the Virb Edit is not a very good programme for editing on.

Edit: I should add that when I watch back the exported clip in vlc, the GPS data shows on the video, but as soon as I put it in the time line in premiere, it disappears"

Actually, it's not so hard to do the trick. Why we always have trouble editing because Adobe Premiere Pro CS5/CS6 still cannot accept all codecs to go natively. You just need to change the Garmin Virb HD Action Camera MP4 clips to something Adobe Premiere Pro could natively handle, and a mpeg2 codec was usually ideal. Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac is just what you need to achieve your goal.

With this powerful video converter program, you can effortlessly transcode Garmin Virb HD Action Camera 1080p MP4 to Premiere friendly movie format like MPEG-2, MOV (Note: it applies to all kinds of Adobe Premiere including Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro CS3/ CS4/ CS5/CS6/CC7) keeping the original quality. Besides Adobe Premiere, this software can also export Apple ProRes, AIC, DNxHD for Final Cut Pro, iMovie, FCE, Avid Media Composer and more NLE systems. If you are Windows users, this Video Converter is the alternative choice. Below is the detailed guide on converting Garmin Virb HD Action Camera 1080p MP4 clips to Premiere Pro friendly videos for smoothly playback and editing.
