Hi, I have just got a new laptop (PC) to be able to - finally - edit HD material using Premiere Pro. However, I still have Premiere Pro CS4. The data I want to edit are MOV files - one lot comes from a Canon D5 - which is absolutely no problem for Premiere, the other lot comes from a JVC camera, the codec is XDCAM EX35 (according to mediainfo). When I try to import these files, Premiere tells me that it does not have the right codec. But what I find strange is that mediainfo tells me that Quicktime (latest version installed yesterday) should be able to open the file - but Quicktime also can't play the file (or rather, only plays sound but no video). So maybe it's a Quicktime problem? My boyfriend edited some of the same material with Premiere Pro CS5 and had no problems - but updating the programme will be a longer term project for me, and I was really hoping for a short term interim solution. And as I said, I am still not sure why Quicktime does not play the file either (no problem with the VLC player). Any suggestions would be very helpful!
CS4 does not have the codecs built in for importing XDCAM media.
This requires installing a plug-in from MainConcept.
Also, there is a separate Forum for CS4:
Premiere Pro CS4 & Earlier
Many thanks. I installed the demo version to see if it works - but unfortunately Premiere still says "codec missing". And the XDCAM file formats supported by the programme do not appear to include MOV files.
