It says the video is JPEG, not MJPEG. I read the link, but I still don't quite understand what I need to do. I am a novice as you can tell.
I did install all software from the disc I received with my camera.
Can you tell me what I need to do, so I can edit these videos with PE? Do I convert the .avi to a .mpeg file?
JPEG is a picture, such as you would edit in Photoshop Elements
Motion JPEG is a series of pictures, with sound, created by some still cameras that also do video
>SeaLife HD camera
Go to the vendor web site and look around to find out if they have software to edit their files, or a specific codec to install to allow editing in PreEl
Okay, I installed G-spot and the codec for the .avi files IS MJPG. And, g-spot says the codec IS installed on my computer.
I went to the Sealife WEbsite. One of the recommended editing programs they listed is Adobe Photoshop elements; which does well for photo editing (not video editing). So, I guess I'll call the Sealife support tomorrow.
Each camera mfgr. seems to love to tweak the old MJPEG CODEC, to suit their particular purposes. Sometimes, one of the generic, or another MJPEG CODEC will work, but often it will not.
With those tweaked MJPEG CODEC's, it is usually best to get the exact one from your camera mfgr., and use that one.
OKay, I call Sealife support. They basically said they don't know what I'm talking about. I repeated exactly what Bill and John have posted here. They said they could not help me. They told me to contact Adobe. !!
Any more suggestions?
There's not much support on the web site either.
Have you tried editing the video with Windows MovieMaker? If it works, there's a way to use Windows MovieMaker to convert the file to a format Premiere Elements can edit.
