AVI: Bandicam settings for Adobe Premiere (Recommended for most users)

To edit the recorded video with Adobe Premiere with the AVI container, choose the "Motion JPEG and PCM" codecs.

Motion JPEG (M-JPEG or MJPEG) is a video format in which each video frame is a JPEG image, therefore each frame is a keyframe, so you can edit the recorded video easily.

AVI container

  • If you want to get the original video quality, please try the "Lagarith lossless codec" instead of "Motion JPEG".
  • If you can't edit videos with the "Motion JPEG and PCM" codecs, please check the "Two Sound Mixing option.
  • If you have an audio sync issue with the "Motion JPEG and PCM" codecs, reduce the video resolution of the recording target and reduce the video size, FPS and video quality of Bandicam.

MP4: Bandicam settings for Adobe Premiere (Recommended for advanced users)

To edit the recorded video with Adobe Premiere with the MP4 container, choose "Prefer CFR".

Adobe Premiere doesn't support VFR (Variable Frame Rate), so you have to choose the "Prefer CFR" option to edit the recorded video in Adobe Premiere.

MP4 container

  • Even if you choose the "Prefer CFR" option, the video will automatically be saved as VFR if the encoder's performance is not good enough. To edit a VFR video, you have to convert the VFR video to CFR.
  • To convert VFR to CFR, download Bandicut -> Open a VFR video -> Click the "Encoding Settings" and then select the FPS value. If you select 30 FPS, you will get a 30-FPS CFR video.
