File Can't Upload

Adobe Premiere Pro might give you an error message like this below.   File-Import-Failure-in-Premier-Pro   It says that the file failed to import. This is actually a really easy problem to fix. For this video, I am using a Windows computer, but I am sure Apple has a movie program that can do this too. In this tutorial, we will see how you can fix this error message in less than one and a half minutes!


  • Go to your folder to find the video clip that did not open. Once you find that video file, you will need to right click on it and select Windows Movie Maker.


  • In Windows Movie Make, we need to make sure saving the movie in high definition


  • Now you simply go into Adobe Premiere Pro and import that new HD file that you just created in Movie Maker.
