Gspot to find out what CODEC created a file
Gspot has the video codec as MJPEG.
(ps. Running Premiere Pro CS3 on Mac)
Apologies for the duplicate.
If there is such thing as a Mac codec for the MJPEG, how would one go about installing it?
Alternatively, someone has suggested opening the file in Quicktime Pro and exporting to Quicktime DV.
Motion JPEG footage doesn't work well with Premiere on either PC or Mac. You absolutely should convert to QT DV in QT Pro if you have it.
On a PC you can just buy a Motion JPEG codec. But on a Mac, natem is correct. Just use Quicktime to convert it.
Thanks Natem, Steve
Will do - QT DV it is.
Easy (at least on a PC): just rename the file from .avi to .mpg. For more see:
