I'm an old school filmmaker who last did intensive stuff when miniDV was king
Now I find myself at a new job shooting and editing testimonials. Everything was fine for a whole year until I tried to import video from another videographer.
I'm on a Windows 7 machine with Premiere Pro CC v.7.1.0
The note on the footage says shot on Panasonic AF150 (AF100?) 1080 p 60i
The .mov import as audio only. I have tried all kinds of sequence settings to change this. No dice.
Also, the footage has, I believe it's called, "Judder". (I can watch the footage with my QT or VLC player.)
Using a video conversion software I was able to import as MP4. But holy heck do I really have to convert all the clips before I can bring them in?
I am pretty clueless about codecs, which is likely the problem. So a quick explanation on codecs and good places to read up on them would also be extremely helpful.
Here's another issue - the videographer used a fisheye lens (or setting?) for some really nice B roll shots. Unfortunately, they are 4:3 and the interviews are 16:9! Is this common and ends up being "my problem" or did he goof?
Thanks in advance!
I should also mention that the footage seems to be Apple ProRes 422, 29.97 and 16 bits.
In order to play mov you need to have Quicktime installed.
Also update Premiere to 7.2.2.
Thanks. I do have Quicktime installed (which is why I was able to watch it on players outside of Premiere.)
And the update didn't help
