Import TS files into Premiere Pro for Editing

TS files are often saved as multiple files on a DVD, i.e. "moviename1.ts," "moviename2.ts," "moviename3.ts," etc. They can be played back by various software DVD players and video editing tools. However, when you try to import TS files to Adobe Premiere Pro for video editing and customization, you may find that you can't import TS files to Premiere Pro due to the incompatibility of video formats. Is there any possible ways to solve this problem? After searching, I've found two possible solutions:

Solution 1. Rename the .ts file extension

As some friends suggest, .TS files are technically just MPEG2 files at a very specific resolution. We can try to rename the file extension from .ts to .mpg to allow Premiere Pro to accept the footage.

Solution 2: Convert TS files to Premiere Pro best editable format

As we know, the file formats Adobe Premiere Pro supports included MOV, WMV, MPEG-2, M2T, M2TS, M4V, etc. Thus, if you desire to edit TS files in Premiere Pro, you'd better to convert TS files to Adobe Premiere Pro compatible video format first. And MPEG-2 is the optimal format.

To finish the task, you can adopt Pavtube Video Converter for Mac for help.
