    Quicktime HDV

    watkino Level 1
      I have an HDV file exported from Final Cut to a Quicktime .mov file.

      When trying to import to PP CS4, I get the error: "Could not import...codec does not appear to be installed"

      Which codec is needed? -bw

          Hard to know, but if I had to hazard a guess, I'd assume that it was Apple's ProRes codec. You didn't say if you were on Windows or Mac for CS4, so again, I'll assume Windows: Apple ProRes QuickTime Decoder for Windows.

          Now, if it's AIC (Apple Intermediate Codec), you're out of luck--there is not decoder on Windows for AIC. If it's another codec altogether, you're going to have to do some sleuthing. I recommend MediaInfo, a pretty indispensable tool for video file exploration.
