Ok I am running adobe premiere pro cs4 version 4.2.1.
The media files were originally filmed via a canon legria fs2000 which used the .MOD file format. These don't play on adobe premiere and I had issues using them on final cut. I used imovie pro to export the media which saved the files as .mov quicktime files which SHOULD be readable on my pc with adobe premiere... yet they are not.
Quicktime won't play the .mov files, nor will sony vegas on pc.
Here is the g-spot info:
So help would be much appreciated... I also went System > List codecs and other filters > and in the list many adobe codecs were highlighted red, I right clicked for information and they said the file was missing, although i went to the file location and they were there.
Do I need to download codecs... Where? How? Please help this is urgent for uni projects
Google for a suitable converter to convert .MOD to MS DV AVI type2. Try to avoid QuiRcktime as much as possible.
You can try to rename .MOD to .MPG and see if PR will handle that. If not you have to use the first suggestion.
If you exported the files from iMovie, you more than likely used the Apple Intermediate Codec (AIC), for which there is no decoder component on Windows. Short story: these files will never playback on a PC. Either work with the original MOD files (search around here, there are suggestions of how to do so) or re-export from iMovie and be sure to use a different codec, like DV or MJPEG. Those should playback just fine on the PC.
I do not know about CS4, but in CS3 you have to have Quicktime (>7.) installed to edit MOVs.
