            Wrong organisation to put the blame on. It is your own fault, using material unsuitable for editing. Convert to DV AVI type2 before trying to edit.

             

            Some suggestions

                    You need to do a LOT of reading to learn about what it is you are trying to do

                     

                    go to http://www.pacifier.com/~jtsmith/ADOBE.HTM and click the link in my notes for tutorials

                      It's your source material.

                       

                      This LINK will tell you how to convert it to something that PrPro can use.

                       

                      This LINK will tell you more about AVI files, in general.

                       

                      Once you have converted your source footage, make sure that your Project/Sequence Presets match your newly converted footage.

                       

                      Good luck,

                        Soo i need to get g-spot, and use that, then either download the codecs it says, or convert to dv avi type 2?

                         

                        and for after effects, will i have to do the same?

                        heres a screenshot of the video.

                          If you don't understand how to use GSpot, CS4 may be way over your head. Either get some video education or use more consumer software, like WMM or Magix.

                              Ah, Motion JPEG. For that, you will likely want the MainConcept, or the Morgan CODEC.

                               

                              Especially with the MainConcept MJPEG CODEC properly installed, you might even be able to edit without having to convert outside of PrPro. It has worked for many. Even if you do need to convert, you will need this CODEC, from one of those two sources.

                               

                              Good luck,

                                okay, it installed to a folder in the c drive, do i need to do anything else to it or should i be good?

                                  Just to make sure I am on the same page with you, I am assuming that you are talking about one of the two MJPEG CODEC's. Is that right?

                                   

                                  I'm not sure what would install into a folder on your C:\ drive, unless it's maybe an uninstaller module, and maybe the base code for the OS to reference. The installation should write to your Registry, and then the CODEC will be available at boot up. Do reboot your machine.

                                   

                                  I'd first try to Import the MJPEG footage into PrPro and see how it edits. For most, it's fine with no problems. A few have still had issues, but those might be specific to their system, or their exact footage.

                                   

                                  Good luck,

                                    wait, do i have to install the mainconcept AND the morgan one?

                                     

                                    all i did was download the mainconcept .exe and installed it.

                                     

                                    i did what the second Q&A here http://www.mainconcept.com/site/prosumer-products-4/motion-jpeg-codec-785/faqs-794.html?0= said, but there was only realtek high definition audio under the sound and video tree

                                      No, it's an either/or situation. Either will work well, though the MainConcept gets a bit higher marks from users. If you followed the instructions from MainConcept, you should be good to go, after a reboot.

                                       

                                      Also, Adobe uses MainConcept CODEC's for about everything else that it does, so I like "keeping it all in the family."

                                          Good luck, and please report back, when you're put the MJPEG through it's paces. Remember to use a Project/Sequence Preset that MATCHES your source footage. That is where G-Spot will come in handy, to give you the full details. You MAY need to set the Project/Sequence up as a Desktop Project, to allow you to tailor things like Frame Size and Frame Rate to match.

                                              As an aside, where are the MJPEG files coming from - Nikon D-90 maybe? If so, there are several threads on D-90 footage, that you might find useful. I do not have any links to these handy, but a Search of the forum for "D90" should turn them up. Most are very recent, and might make for interesting reading. Besides the MJPEG aspect, there were other discussions in these threads too.

The important thing is that you can get to editing, and have likely helped another PrPro, or PE user, with that last bit of info. I'll give you attributes, if I use that data in the future.
