Because one has a CODEC installed, does not mean that all NLE's can use that to edit. Editing is very different than playing. First, CODEC's are designed for playback, next for encoding to, and finally some for editing.
I've long since forgotten the Export options in AVID (was also before HD, so moot now), but I would try another CODEC, instead of one of the AVID ones.
Now, you mentioned the MOV [Animation] CODEC. I use a lot of those files, coming from the Mac. I have never had an issue with that CODEC in the MOV "wrapper." Not sure why you are.
Maybe get and install the Lagarith Lossless CODEC. PrPro can edit with it just fine.
Thank you for the answers. Funny thing is: G-Spot says about the video that doesn't import into PP CS4:
QT (mov) raw uncompressed RGB, no codec required. So why doesn't at least this one appear in PP?
I also tested QT animation, same thing, black video. I did install QT player after installing PP. may that be a problem?
I also tried to call adobe germany...oh lord...
There must be a way to import QT that´s the most common thing. I have clients who wanna give me source footage. What should I say, they all use QT.
