    Default Can I get Premiere Pro to accept MKV files?

    I'm editing a project for someone and some of the files are mkv. I read some tutorials on how to convert them to MP4, and then Premiere Pro will accept them, but after I do that, Premiere Pro will still not accept the newly converted MP4. Does anyone know if this is possible?

    Hey there,

    Can you tell me what software you used to convert the mkv into mp4? And what kind of settings did you use?

    So you used VLC? The first option in the video? If you used that try this:

    Go up to Media and then to Convert/Save.
    Then to Add
    Find your mkv file
    Then click Convert/Save
    Under Settings there's a section called Profile. Choose Video - H.264 + MP3 (MP4)
    Then hit the tool icon.
    Then hit the video codec tab and choose MP4 instead of H264. And check "Keep Original Video Track"
    Then hit the audio codec tab and check "Keep original audio track"
    Then hit Save
    Choose your destination and hit start

    Try to import that new file into Premiere and let me know if it doesn't work. These are PC instructions, if you have a Mac I can send you different instructions but the software and steps are extremely similar between both operating systems.
