Import Blu-ray to Adobe Premiere Pro CC7/CS6/CS5/CS4/CS3 on Mac Maverick & Mountain Lion

Description: Give it a possible way to import a movie from blu-ray to Adobe Premiere Pro.

One year ago, I made my first short movie in after effect and converted it directly to blu-ray. But the problem now is that I want to put a part of the movie into my showreel, but can’t find the After Effects file anymore. I post a thread on a forum trying to fig out if I can import the blu-ray into premiere (CS4) or is there any other way with CS4 to rip the blu-ray into a full HD file?.

Some guy’s words give me a hint. “Copy BD to HDD and go into the STREAM directory there you will find your movie, it’s a m2ts file. You can import this into Premiere.” Following this, it works perfect 

However, another problem happened when I try to import a Blu-ray disc (Avatar) to Premiere Pro CS4, I got a File Import Failure window that says “Unsupported format or damaged file.” 

Searching further and widely; says M2TS files are supported for import into CS4. The problem is that I am trying to pull files from a store-bought Blu-ray disc into Premiere which has some kind of copy protection. Yes, that is the definite cause of the problem. Premiere can’t support Blu-ray disc which has protection at all. So, the optional choice is that I need to decrypt the protection of Blu-ray disc first and then import to Premiere.

One of my friends recommends Pavtube BDMagic for Mac (Windows Version: BDMagic). The software is ease of use. I download the trail version and convert my Blu-ray movie to a Adobe Premiere highly compatible format WMV. So, I can import it freely on Adobe Premiere CS4. In fact, it can just copy the movie content under the profile of “Directly Copy” which highly reduces the conversion time. The most important is that the conversion quality was great! The quality of the conversion was beyond expectation- the files looks as good as from the original. Very clean, very quick, very impressive.

This converter not only supports Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, but also suits other models of Adobe Premiere Pro, including CC7, CS6, CS5, and CS3. Anyone who has the similar issues can follow the tutorial below presenting the Blu-ray to WMV (VC-1) (*.wmv) conversion process. I do the conversion on Mac Maverick (it also supports Mountain Lion and Windows OS including 8.1).

How to convert Blu-ray to Adobe Premiere Pro CC7/CS6/CS5/CS4/CS3?

1. Download the Blu-ray to Adobe Premiere Pro Converter, install.

2. Start Blu-ray to Premiere Pro converter to import Blu-ray disc or Blu-ray IFO/ISO files. Choose the output format as WMV, MPEG-2 or Prores 422.

Before convert Blu-ray to Adobe Premiere Pro, you can click “Settings” button to customize the output parameters, such as resolution, bitrate, etc. You can also skip this step because I think that the preset profile is really suitable.

3. Hit the “Convert” button to rip Blu-ray to WMV/ProRes 422 for Adobe Premiere Pro.

When the conversion process is over, you can import videos to Adobe Premiere Pro and edit without any problem. Read Adobe Premiere Pro workflow: How to import Media Files to Premiere Pro on Mac to learn the details.
