Why do AVCHD (.mts) video thumbnails not appear in Organizer 8?

Thumbnails for video clips imported into Organizer 8 (via Premiere Elements 8) are not appearing for AVCHD (.mts) files.    Numerous online forums show this is a common issue, however other than renaming file extensions from .mts to .m2ts, I have not found any other more practical solutions.   Adobe customer service was of no help.   Other proposed solutions such as installing new codecs have not solved the issue.   Any ideas?

I am having the same problem on both systems that I run Premiere Elements 8 Organizer. All software and drivers are up to date.The only way that I can get thumbnails to display for AVCHD files in the Organizer, is to change the file extension from .mts to .m2ts. In my opinion, that is clearly a bug with the Organizer that must be fixed by Adobe ASAP. Organizing video without thumbnails is next to useless.
If you start a new project and open Premier Elements you can create the thumbnails for AVCHD files with the .mts extension by right clicking each one and selecting Update Thumbnail (which is laborious, at best). However, when you exit the project and go back to Organizer the thumbnails are still not there, nor can you create them. Next, go back into Elements and the thumbnails are there.
Can you say bug!
Update 07/15/10: I contacted technical support and they said that this is a known problem. The only solution, if you could call it that, is to use file renaming utility to change all your file extensions from .mts to .m2ts. I hope they fix this problem and release an update soon, as all I shoot these days is AVCHD with the Panasonic HDC-TM700K.

  • AVCHD (MTS) video files thumbnails previews

    How can I have video thumbnail previews for my AVCHD (Mts) video files in Premiere, After Effects?
    I can preview alla the other formats but not the above one.
    Thank you.

    Hunt is correct in that the video codec AVCHD (MPEG4 AVC/H.264) was not supported by Premiere Elements until version  7. A variety of converters were used in those days before Premiere Elements 7 (because of AVCHD non support) and after versions 7 - 9 because of the resource demands of the AVCHD editing in those programs.
    Typically the converters in those days took the AVCHD to a MPEG2 HD.mpg form. The most popular one at the time was the free Koyote Soft HD converter. You may want to check it out and determine if it would work for you.
    As I recall there were a lucky few at the time who had Sony Vaio computers which offered an add on for AVCHD support in Premiere Elements 4 running on a particular Sony Vaio computer.
    Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

  • Why in the layer options does not appear to me "video layers" why? help

    why in the layer options does not appear to me
    "video layers" why? help
    I need to encourage and not because my computer does not appear to me and others computers that has the same photoshop cc if that option appears. It would be helpful to know what thanks

    99.9% of the time, the cause of this issue is the fact the phone was jailbroken/hacked to unlock it for use on networks other than the network the phone was originally locked to. Apple maintains a database of officially unlocked iPhones, and when Apple's servers detect phones such as yours, activation stops & you get the message you got.
    So, either get a sim card from the carrier your phone was originally locked to, or get it officially unlocked, if you want to activate it. Because it appears that it was not officially unlocked

  • Video thumbnails not showing in A3

    Hi, could anyone tell me why most of my video thumbnails aren't visible in A3? I have around 60 video clips imported into Aperture and only around 5 are identifiable via the thumbs, the rest are just black squares with the flag icon appearing over the corner when hovering on them with the mouse. they all play fine from start to finish. There is no visible processing of thumbs if Aperture's left to its own devices.

    Unfortunately, it looks like Aperture shipped with a very small number of camera video format compatibility options.
    Here is the tech doc:
    Most of the big mainstream DSLR models are supported, but I would guess a lot of people are probably shooting with smaller point and shoots at the moment, and according to this doc, many of the little cameras aren't (yet?) compatible.

  • Thumbnails Not Appearing in Finder

    I posted this in the Leopard forumn, but I haven't gotten any response. I hope someone here can help.
    I am having a strange problem with image thumbnails not appearing in Finder. I am editing some very large TIF files on a Macbook that is running Lion. These images are edited on an external drive, and when I hook the drive up to my main iMac, which is running Leopard, the new images I have created in Lion do not have thumbnails. The only way that they will appear is if I open the images in Photoshop and just resave them on the machine running Leopard. This method poses a problem because each image takes about 5-8 minutes to open, and another 5-8 to save. I have hundreds of images and don't have the time to do that to each one.
    Does anyone know what could be causing this problem?

    I've tried repairing disk permissions, as well as deleting the finder plist file, and neither of those things work.

  • Videos do not appear on IN Videos list

    I have purchased several videos from the iTunes music store. NONE of the appear in my iTunes "video" list.
    They appear in my purchased list. They appear in my library. I can watch the videos without problem. I am warned about adding videos to music playlists.
    I cannot drag videos to the video list. Purchased videos do not appear in my video list.
    I have created a standard playlist and moved all of my videos there.
    Has anyone else seen this?

    Do the amounts appear on report CJID? I believe the WBS will not appear on the Settled values report, because it's already shown on the error list and the settlement on the WBS is not complete yet. What is the error on the WBS anyway?
    Best Regards,

  • My pics and videos do not appear in the video browser?

    my pics and videos do not appear in the video browser? How do I get it back. I may have denied IMovie access to my pics and videos when opening the app for the first time.

    I have the same issue (iPad 3, iOS 6).  I have tried to:
    -erase all projects on the iMovie
    -reset the iPad
    -uninstall iMovie and reinstall it
    None of these three things worked and I am at lost in terms of what else can be done.
    All that happens when I start a new project is that under "videos" there is a big black box (empty videos).  Same thing for pictures.  When I press the camera button to insert a video from the camera, this works no problem.  However, I used to be able to insert videos/pictures from my Camera Roll.

  • Sony WX7 .mts video files not imported into iPhoto 11

    Apple indicates iLife ’11 supports AVCHD (.mts) files, however, I've been unable to get iPhoto 11 to import video files from the Sony WX7 camera. Photo's are imported properly via both usb and directly from the SD card reader in my Macbook Pro (i7) 2011, however, video files are not.  I've read that iMovie '08 supports Sony AVCHD 2011-model video cameras, but iPhoto 11 appears not to.
    Mac OS X v10.6.7, is fully up to date. Has anybody found a solution?

    Not sure where you are seeing that AVCHD is supported in iPhoto '11 but it is not - use iMovie to import your AVCHD movies - that works for my my Sony DSC-HX5

  • Why are all-day calendar events not appearing in the Notification Center?

    I've noticed that all-day Calendar events do not appear in the Notfication Center in iOS. This is a glaring omission and I'm not sure if it's related to a bug or is intentional but it should be fixed right away. Why in the world would you leave out an all-day event from the Notification Center? What if I had a wedding anniversary or some other important event to remember?

    IOS / is no out for a couple of weeks and Apple seems to be reluctant to fix this problem. As a business device it becomes rediculous to be not able to see my calender entries anymore in the notification center. Is Apple now leaving the business arena and focusing on toys ?

  • The "converted by iTunes" Video Podcasts not appearing on the iPod

    I have downloaded some (old) video podcasts from the Music Store. As they were old files; I realised that they were not suitable for the iPod 5G, while trying to sync to the iPod. Then I converted them by using iTunes itself via 'convert selection for iPod' function.
    Then, as it's a known case, an error message appeared on iTunes that not all the files were transferred to iPod, blah blah. (Because the unsuitable files will also remain on the iTunes, as well as the converted ones.)
    So to get rid of that error message, I have chosen to delete those old and unsuitable files which I would not need anymore.
    When I update my iPod, everything seems to be ok, no more warnings on the screen, etc - but the problem is that those converted 'suitable' files do not appear neither on the Video Podcasts folder, nor in another video folder on the iPod. But they are on the iTunes, within the right folder (videos -> podcasts), together with a newly published Video Podcast of the same series - which is the only one appearing on the iPod.
    Is the only chance to view them changing their folders from 'podcasts' to e.g. 'movies' folder? Or is it just another bug of iPod G5 which really starts to disappoint me these days?
    Does anybody experience a situation like this?
    Any ideas will be appreciated.
    »iMac G5|rev.B 2.0ghz 1.5gb-ram   Mac OS X (10.4.4)   »iPod shuffle|512mb »The iPod|5G 60gb software1.1(regret)

    Reconverting the files normaly changes the original podcast meta-data. Download and use a meta-data modifier utility (like Lostify) to reinsert the proper tags.

  • Thumbnails not appearing in My Photo Stream folder

    When I open the "My Photo Stream" folder the pictures do not appear, just black squares with the titles or Image numbers.  If I click on the back square the photo appears.  Please tell me how I can get the thumbnail pictures back in "My Photo Stream."  Thank you. I am using iPhoto 9.5.1

    Try to rebuild the thumbnails for your iPhoto Library.
    Launch iPhoto with options-command keys held down. Keep holding down the keys firmly, until you are seeing the First Aid Panel.  Select "Rebuild Thumbnails".

I know how to display the attachment header (I use classic layout) but the problem is that the paperclip icon does not appear against the messages that contain attachments. See screenshot below. The attachment column is displayed but is blank. These are my sent items and I know for a fact that most of them have attachments. Can you help?

  • Why Gmail sent from my iPhone not appearing in iMac's Sent folder?

    Hi guys,
    Some time after installing iCloud - possibly the same day, I sent a message from my iPhone 3G to multiple recipients.
    a) No one got it, b) my message appears as Sent in iPhone and in Gmail (on their site), and on my iMac's Gmail/Sent folder, but not in the iMac's Mail/Sent folder - which is the one I always check.
    I have 2 questions: 1. how come a message appearing as Sent on Gmail's own site isn't received (there were 4 recipients) and, 2. why does it appear as Sent in some but not all Sent folders?
    Would iCloud have anything to do with it?
    I just sent a test message to myself from my iPhone. I got the message both on the iPhone AND iMac, but again the message does not appear in the iMac's/Mail Sent folder. Bizarre?
    PS   All my software is up to date, regardless of what my profile says.
    Thanks a lot,

    Please ignore the above .  I have discovered what I did wrong - but don't know how to delete the question!
