You may be have encountered such kind of problem: when you try to import TS files to Premiere Pro CC for editing on Mac, you’ll find that you can’t import TS files to Premiere Pro CC due to the incompatibility of video file formats. So, how to deal with TS files to Premiere problems?
“I have a file that ends in .ts. I’ve never run into a file like this so I want to edit the TS files in Premiere Pro CC. However, when I import TS files to Premiere Pro CC, using the media browser, importing, or dragging it from a folder, it always crashed. I’ve research almost everywhere and couldn’t figure out. Any suggestions will be appreciated!”
As some guys suggest, TS files are technically just MPEG-2 files at a very specific resolution. I was suggested to try to rename the file extension from .ts to .mpg to allow Premiere Pro to see the footage. I’ve followed the advice. In fact, it lets me import TS files to Premiere Pro CC, but there is no audio track. I’ve reset some settings, no luck.
A more practical way recommended online is to convert TS to a common format for using in Adobe Premiere Pro. And MPEG-2 is the optimal format. After testing Handbrake or even FFmpeg, I found the output videos workable in Adobe Premiere Pro, but it seems heavy quality loss after conversion. So, on the basis of easy operation and lossless quality, I pick Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac eventually. Since Premiere Pro CC struggles with TS files, so I used this all-in-one converter application to convert TS files to Premiere best accepted MPEG-2 .mpg and the quality was amazing.

You can change the resolution, bit rate, frame rate as you need.
Step 4: When everything is done, you can take a preview by hitting “Play” button. If you are satisfied with the final result, you can click “Convert” button to finish the conversion work.
