I am viewing the previews of Action Essentials 2 from Video Copilot and the resolution seems very degraded, tons of artifacts also. This never happened before, and these are just pre-keyed clips for special effects, .mov files.
I have included a jpg of viewing the same clip in preview window of Bridge CS6 220.127.116.11, and in Quicktime 7.73. You can see in the image there is a huge difference. It renders fine in After Effects CS6, Premiere, and Photoshop.
I have purged the cache, restarted, checked for updates, etc.
I have updated nvidia drivers 306.97 and a 480 gtx EVGA vid card. Windows 7 64bit SP1, and i7-920.
This seems to have happened recently, as it used to preview in high quality. I checked video I did on my Nikon D800 and it appears to be fine, and uses a .MOV extension.
Curt, I tried that. No luck with software rendering. I am thinking it must be some kinda codec issue. Thanks for your ideas.
Hopefully some more people read this, It would be nice to get this figured out.
I am pretty sure the CODECS are installed on my pc, since I can view the clip in quicktime. But I'll give it a shot.
Update: I used G-spot and the codec on these videos appears to be png. The fact it says codec status undetermined is strange, but I also checked files from my camera and files I rendered out using media encoder and these all say the same thing, but work with no problems.
I looked at a .mov made with a Panasonic Lumix camera. It has the codec as pana (unknown) and status undetermined. It plays fine.
Might post something on the Premier Elelments or Pro site as they would be much more informed on codecs.
If you find an answer post back as others may read this thread looking for answers to similar problem.
By the way the screen shots were so small they were barely readable.
I am just going to have to deal with it I guess. sorry about the small screenshots, I was trying to make smaller file sizes. I am pretty sure it has something to do with bridge specific codecs or whatever player is used to preview files in bridge.
Anyway, thanks for your help Curt.
There is no logical reason for adding CS6 should affect CS5. So if the video does not play well now with CS5 something has changed. THe most likely culprit is the video card driver. Having the latest is not always the best. Can you recall if you updated your driver since it played well in CS5?
If you go to preferences/advanced and click "use software rendering" do this make any difference?
What OS are you using?

i think a updated drivers, i have windows7 64 , and also when im trying to close bridge it's not responding
Perhaps your driver is crashing?
Open the Event Viewer in OS and see if you can find an entry "Faulting Modue".
