Question 1: Yes.
Question 2: Use a matching AVCHD preset. It'll work just fine.
Question 3: I don't know why it won't render without the AME. Check the sequence settings because they're probably set to I-frame Only MPEG. It may be due to MPEG-related stuff on the computer you are using. And if they're set to MS AVI/Uncompressed (something), then it could be because the proper 3rd-party hardware isn't present on the system.
Along with Jeff's comments, there are about six Canon 5D MK II threads on the forum. Some are fairly recent, and none is over about 6 mos. old. I'd also recommend doing a search on this forum for "Canon 5D MK II," and follow some of those threads.
Wine, the most important thing that might be read is my post's words, the first line in particular. I've seen all the old discussions.
Jeff, thanks so much for the fast response! Is there a discussion somewhere (here or otherwise) that talks about what Adobe did in 4.1 to improve this?
Is my contention that it now works as well with the native Canon file as it does with MP4 conversions consistent with recent observations with 4.1?
When I choose the HDV format, what will suffer in the file and processing?
Thanks for the MPEG tip. I'll ask the shop what they have. Probably lots of stuff on their PC.
Well, as several did apply to the CS4.1 update, I assumed that you had missed those.
Sorry for trying to help you - you are on your own!
On my own is fine.
In the settings on this PC, after removing third-party codec packs, the only preview mode shown is still "I-Frame Only MPEG".
You mentioned that in your reply to my problem, but I can't tell whether you meant it was good or bad to see that.
There are no other options available. Is that a bad option to have showing and be stuck with?
My video plays now, with a yellow render line, and it renders without the error now (correlates to removal of MC codec pack), but that option has not changed.
It's neither good nor bad - it just is. That's the only choice available for AVCHD sequence preview files.
Glad you got rid of the codec pack. Almost without exception they are very bad news.
Using the Sequence presets, I have no problems with AVCHD\1080p\AVCHD 1080p30.
And you'll need Quirk Time installed as the Mark II outputs *.mov files.
You quickly picked up my Lingo.
It might not be too late to register "QuirkTime." Heck, Neil Wilkes owns "Poxio" (for Roxio), and Eddie Lotter got "Happy Editing."
Of course then, we'll need to start typing that little ®
