How to Import MKV files into Adobe Premiere Pro

There is no denying that Adobe Premiere Pro can complete all of the professional video editors. Easy integration with After Effects and Photoshop is a boon. However, when you import the MKV file into Premiere Pro, you may encounter many problems, such as not showing anything on the screen, or only the image, or only Premiere Pro to play the sound. So, according to Adobe, Premiere Pro only accepts AVI, M4V, MOV, MP4, MPEG, MPE, MPG, WMV files. And you can easily find that MKV is not there. Since Premiere Pro does not support MKV, in order to edit MKV video in Premiere Pro CS6 / CS5 or CC, you need to convert MKV video into Premiere compatible format before transferring files to Premiere.
