"Black" clip on import

Feb 19, 2013 8:53 AM

I am looking for help on this one too.

 

I am importing some video clips created by a GE medical equipment (Voluson E8). The clips play with a variety of Media player, adn they import in Premiere CS6, but the preview and the monitor are totally black. Yet you can see the "reader head" travel properly along the time line.

This suggest to me a CODEC issue, but i am nto sure how to solve this.

These are the properties of the clip:

 

Type: AVI Movie

File Size: 154.3 MB

Image Size: 975 x 735

Frame Rate: 55.55

Total Duration: 00;00;09;24

Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.0

 

Thanks for pointers !

    For oddball videos, I use the following to convert.  (Grab the latest version 5, not 6.)

    What is inside the file?

     

    Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... a screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing

    Try a different output format.  MP4 seems to work pretty well.  There's even a lossless option under Video Encoding if you want it.
