Hi, Samopal, if this is your case, you can also try this software: Wondershare Video Editor for Mac (OS X 10.8 supported). Hope it works for you. Best regards,
Hmmmmm, bad way. If you convert video you lost image quality. I solve it this way - i encode only audio track and in Premiere i import video files and then audio files. If i have S1000+ 1080p videos i can´t lost quality by converting videos - better way than encoding is use other video editor.
