The FLV video is the widely accepted video format for sharing video file on the Internet. Yet, the FLV video is not editable as easily as other video formats, especially the AVI. This article is to show you how to import YouTube FLV files into Adobe Premiere for further editing.
Watching YouTube video has become an indispensable part of our Internet life. With a number of FLV downloading tools emerging, more and more people prefer to download and reedit the YouTube videos in their own style. However, there is not such a tool that can deal with FLV editing perfectly so far.
YouTube video is in the FLV format, which is highly compressed and thus is different from other video formats. Someone thinks that FLV video file is not editable in itself. When they want to edit the FLV, they would like to convert it to other video format first, such as AVI or MPG. The preparation for the editing seems like a complex process. What’s more, the key frames lost in the FLV compression will not be reproduced after converting to other less compressed formats. The added frames you see in it are just the repeated frames of the compressed FLV. So it is not wise enough to experience such inconvenience before editing FLV files.
