Which OS you are working on bcoz i gota know that there is a codec availble if u are on a MAC and importing a .MOV file .
Consumer cameras are best used in combination with consumer editing programs. like WMM or PE7.
If you want to measure the voltage on a wall outlet, you don't use expensive ECG equipment, do you?
You pay $800 for an NLE to edit viodeo from a $150 camera? Something doesn't seem right.
Jim: Yea, well I didn't pay. It's my friend's computer and he has it. But you shouldn't be saying things like that. I hate when people don't answer the question, instead criticize the process which doesn't really help at all. Please if you don't know the answer, don't reply.
As to the other response, I don't get why WMM would be able to do something that Premiere can't. Shouldn't everything WMM does, Premiere Pro should be able to do? Not that WMM won't work, but it's just kind of stupid that you can pay so much for a professional program that can't do what a free Microsoft program can.
Did you compare a Fluke multimeter to a decent ECG apparatus? How do the prices compare?
Harm and Jim, are you guys having a bad month? You two keep telling people this bit about price/sophistication levels, with no actual technical help for the person, and it's getting a bit odd.
These are the questions/posts that you might possibly stay out of, if you have no detailed contribution. If he finds a proper codec, PPro will be a wonderful editing realm -- particularly if he has used it before or even simply likes the feel/look of the software.
There is no price/sophistication analogy that fits here, and your comparison to multimeters and all that just seems to be contriving a barrier. It just doesn't hold water at all. I could come to your homes and find things from you cars to your razors that you do not use to their fullest capabilities, and it would be the same as your judgment here. And it would not be 1) fair or 2) MY BUSINESS WHAT YOU BUY OR USE.
Whether this person was offended or not, you did not answer his question (the assumption being that he HAS PPro, wants to use it, and it's not our business to tell him that he shouldn't be if it might work).
To the original poster, if you can find a codec, Premiere Pro will most likely be a wonderful editing environment for you that you can use with lots of stuff in sophisticated or simple ways.
Your argument boils down to: Convert to MS DV AVI type2 if you want to edit this material. Otherwise look elsewhere.
I agree with that.
I hate when people don't answer the question
Premiere said the format wasn't supported. So, either use other software with that camera. Or use a better camera with Premiere Pro, one that shoots to a standard camera format.
Well those are the two obvious alternatives, however that list is not exhaustive. There might be a way to go around the problem, like by installing a codec, or some patch. And I was hoping someone here knows how to do that? Hmm... Well for now I'm using WMM, but I don't want to.
Do you have the latest version of quick time player instastalled on your system,
if yes and still you facing the same issue then you can convert the .MOV files to any other format using AE or any other third party software.
Hope this works for you , have a great day.
I have a camera that makes MOV files and it did the same thing until I installed QuickTime, which plays MOV files and installs the codec that allows PPro to play them. Now it works fine.
Oh thats gr8 sir that it resolved ur issue
Have a good day
It should serve as an embarrasing lesson to some here if QuickTime solves the issue, as it did for countless Canon 5D owners.
Sidetracking to high-brow statements about comparative prices and such serves only to possibly alienate people from buying Premiere and participating in communities like this. I would think Adobe would not like this, as it could hurt sales. I've seen several threads here where you two same people have angered and alienated other people with the same kind of quippy, off-subject comments.
Consider how you are making the community look and feel. You two have contributed so much valuable material that it is a sad process to see this deterioration of content.
Did no one remember the 5D answer to not suggest it here (QuickTime installatoin)? Are we blinded by ideas of some lofty perch we sit upon with our "expensive" software?
Hey thanks a lot Chrissa! It worked! I installed Quicktime and now it works perfectly with Premiere. Very helpful and correct.
