Published on by Chris King

Here is a simple guide on how to easily convert Canon MVI to Premiere Pro compatible format with great output quality for easily playback and editing.

Convert and Import Canon MVI to Adobe Premiere Pro

The MVI file extension is the default file type of many digital camcorders. When you got some Canon PowerShot MVI files, what do you usually do? Most of you would choose to edit your Canon MVI in Adobe Premiere Pro or other NLE systems to make a masterpiece. Whereas, Canon MVI is more commonly used for viewing and working on a computer, it’s not an ideal file type for editing. Adobe Premiere can’t read and ingest Canon MVI video as other tools. What I want to do with the current project is take the Canon MVI footage I have and convert it for use with Adobe Premiere Pro. And what I need is a Canon MVI converter I know.

After multiple testing, I found the best application I can use is Brorsoft Video Converter.

It’s the best MVI converter for you, which can help you decode MVI files when converting into a different, and ideally more edit friendly, compression format like MPEG-2, MOV, AVI, WMV, FLV, MP4, MKV, etc. So, you can edit MVI footage with Adobe Premier Pro, Windows Movie Maker, Sony Vegas, Pinnacle Studio smoothly; play MVI clips on computer and portable devices freely. If you want to work Canon MVI clips in Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, iMovie on Mac(Mavericks), please turn to MVI Converter for Mac. Download it and follow the tutorial below showing the detailed steps on how to transcode Canon MVI to MPEG-2 for Premiere Pro.
