Q: The exercise files for Premiere Pro CS3 Essential Training will not open. Is this because Premier Pro CS3 does not support MP4 files?
A: Premiere Pro CS3 does in fact support files with the MP4 extension, as demonstrated in the training. The problem is likely due to the required codecs not being installed on your system. Download the latest version of QuickTime, which will install the most recent versions of the codecs that Premiere needs to understand a wider variety of file types.
