I am trying to assist a user at work with an issue he is having with an AVI file. When he brings the file into CS4 to edit he only gets about 6 frames viewable with the rest black, it is a 20k+ frame file at about 21gb. Audio imports fine.
Gspot states that the video is DIB (_RGB) BI_RGB Raw Bitmap, no codec required.
Initially the file was a VOB that he ran through virtual dub to create the AVI file. The resulting AVI file plays fine in Media Player and works in Windows Movie maker. Not sure if that is a great test or not, but it tells me that it probably isn't a codec issue with the PC.
I have run the file through virtual dub again and checked some boxes under options to only use internal codecs as opposed to any 3rd party codecs that may be installed. The resulting AVI was identical however.
Any help is appreciated, I am pretty stuck since I am not very familiar at all with video editing, and no one around me is well versed either.
