In the past (i.e., CS4), I used Calibrated Software's codecs to edit QuickTime files that were re-wrapped XDCAM-EX footage sent from clients using Final Cut. Never had a problem.
Now, with CS5, I can only work for a few minutes in Premiere until I experienced a crash. Exporting via the AME will cause a lockup as well. I suspect it has something to do with Adobe's QT importer, 'Adobe QT32 Server.exe'. Whether this is an Adobe or Apple problem is a mystery, but a workaround is desperately needed.
Aside from transcoding and recutting, any suggestions?
CS5 is 64bit... is your codec 64bit?
Find a way to circumvent QuiRckTime, it is the slowest and most troublesome codec on a PC.
It turns out I am in luck (at least, I seem to be so far). An update to the latest version seems to have done the trick. I didn't even think to check for a new version of the software since I'd downloaded the original a couple of weeks ago.
In any case, going from version 1.6.7 to 1.7.0 has me cutting again.
Should anyone find themselves with a pile of QuickTimes re-wrapped by Final Cut, I highly recommend Calibrated codecs. And Harm, I do agree that cutting with QT stinks. But, when given a drive full of media, this workflow has saved me quite a bit of time in the past.
