I have some movies made on a MAC which I'm trying to edit in Premiere Pro CS6 on a PC. (HP Workstation, Windows 7), the Codec is Apple HDV 1080i60, 1440 x 1080 (1888 x 1062) The PC is not reading the codec in either Premiere or QUicktime player. Will installing (hence purchasing/relinquishing an 18 pack of Molson Canadian) quicktime pro solve the problem? I have a rather large library of video in this format I'd like to edit in the PC environment.
Appreciate any input.
Certain components are not supported in the Windows version of QuickTime. Impacted formats include HDV and XDCAM ingested on Mac and brought into the PC environment.
You can purchase a third party codec, which will support those files, however: http://www.calibratedsoftware.com/QXD.asp
You can also transcode the formats on Mac to one a PC can read, and then import those files.
