Trouble Importing Video into Adobe Premiere
#1
So I am attempting to do an edit of Titanic with a restoration of the Paramount logo and some light regrading of the color. I have attempted several times to import a Blu-ray rip into Premiere and keep coming up with errors.

If I import the MKV directly, I get these odd anomalies on random frames (almost like pixelation) that are not apparent when played back on the same shots in VLC or other players.

I tried converting the video to an intermediate like ProRes (422 HQ in this case) and instead of pixelation I get frame jumps.  Of course, these appear baked into the source so any encodes I do have the problem.  I even re-ripped the Blu-ray from scratch and had the same result, but on different frames.  Blu-ray plays back fine without issue and the mkv plays fine in VLC and other players again.

I'm beginning to think that Premiere is borked.  Anyone else ever have this issue?  This issue did not happen when working with 4K HEVC rips (Terminator 2 and the Matrix) that I worked on recently.

I would convert to an AVI like with lagarith codec, always works me. I'm surprised Prores gave you issues though, normally that works great in Premiere.

What's the actual video format contained in the MKV file?

It's a straight Blu-ray rip from MakeMKV so H.264 AVC.  

I'll take a look into those links but I am using macOS so I know that limits some of those tools.

Premiere handling mkv files at all is a very novel development, and I've also not had great experiences. I suggest you mux the video into an mp4, that tends to work quite well.

I'm surprised you get frame jumps with the ProRes. What software did you use to transcode?

I used Adobe Media Encoder.

What Mac app can mux to MP4 without re-encoding? Tsmuxer does not seem to have that option.

Yeah don't use Adobe Media Encoder ... it's not very good. Tongue And if Premiere can't read it, why would Media Encoder be able to?

I suggest you use ffmpeg commandline. For example:

ffmpeg -i input.mkv -c:v copy -an output.mp4

That will create an mp4 without audio. Sadly mp4 doesn't support lossless audio afaik. So I always just import audio separately as wav files.

I imagined, same problems with premiere and h264 here, try repack it as a m2ts instead and import that into Premiere, I guarantee it's gonna work without problems

For me personally, m2ts was also buggy, or at least very slow. Mp4 worked much better typically.
