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
That's odd. We have edited both HDV 1080i (originally digitized from HDV tape in FCP7) and the same files transcoded to ProRes with only one issue. Premiere 5.5 didn't like something about the mov wrapper FCP created. The scopes would look wacked out, but the footage visually was fine. We transcoded to ProRes to be safe and all was well. I had some codec updates from Apple a while back, but I"m also running the latest Compressor and Motion. I'm guessing if you don't have one of those that may be your issue. You can't load the updated codecs without one of those programs (or FCPX). Motion is a great program and the price is right.
Thank you for your replies.
I thought it was clear, anyway... these are MOV files containing Apple HDV 1080i60 video at 1440x1080 as well as two 48kHz audio tracks. The data rates are 26.66mbits. They were originally captured to FCP v5.1.4 back in the day before the ProRes codecs were available.
They playback fine in QT on a Mac, while they open with the correct size window under Window 7 / QT 7, the audio plays but video is a white field.
I guess I am wondering if there is an old Apple HDV codec that can be imported into Adobe Media Encoder under windows?
