workes fine for CS4
system crashes instantly when I select a nikon file to import.
Possibly because the codec used is not 64 bit.
thanks for the reply. not following you though. do I have to install a new codec than the working 64bit used for CS4? I'm surprised the codec would cause the system to crash on file import (render, yes, but import?).
I cannot unistall CS4 until CS5 is working. This is how I make my living.
Am I the only one having this error with CS5?!!
>64bit used for CS4?
CS4 was 32bit, not 64bit
I think you will need a new codec to go with CS5
IF the codec is MJPG try...
MJPG edit with Morgan or MainConcept http://www.morgan-multimedia.com/
still not working. The mainConcept codc is $150. Am i missing something (hopefully a link to a free download) or do I have to pay $150 to keep Premiere from crashing?????????????????????
Why is so difficult to use this software!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would check the Nikon install utility, to see if they ship a 64-bit CODEC. Might be installed with software?
