Edit Sony PDW-F350 footages in Premiere Pro CC, CS6,CS5

Why I can't import MXF recording from my Sony PDW-F350 into Adobe Premiere ? How to edit Sony PDW-F350 MXF in Premiere Pro CC7, CS6, CS5 smoothly? Read this article to find out the solution.

The PDW-F350 is a highly versatile and cost-effective HD camcorders that are equipped with three 1/2-inch-type HD CCDs, and offer HD recording in 1080/59.94i, 50i, 29.97P, 25P, and 23.98P modes – as well as DVCAM-format recording.

But if you are the user of Sony PDW-F350 XDCAM HD Camcorder, you will encounter the problem while importing the MXF files to Adobe Premiere Pro 6.0 or its earlier versions of CS4, CS5, CS5.5, or even Premiere Elements, you may see the error "ERROR COMPILING MOVIE: UNKNOWN" coming up when exporting a movie composed of MXF clips, whether it's to AVI, H.264, etc., this error comes up, in particular when the movie is "long", i.e. a half minute to a minute. Otherwise, with short clips there is no problem.

As a matter of fact, MXF footage is not the native format for Adobe Premiere Pro. That's the reason why I used Brorsoft MXF Converter for Mac to deal with MXF videos.
