    What happened to DVCPro50?

    cmcilwain4450

      I just installed CS5, and DVCPro50 is not available as a render codec.  The DVCProHD codecs are still there.  What happened to the NTSC versions?

          I still have it on mine.  Mac OS X 10.6.4 & QT 7.6.6

            I'm worried that this is a QT10 problem.  I still have the codec on CS3 after upgrading to QT10, though.

              If you're doing any professional video work, you must have an earlier version of QuickTime in addition to QuickTime X installed. QuickTime X has nowhere near the functionality of QuickTime 7.x. QuickTime X is mostly just a player for a small number of formats. It's not a package of practical video tools like QuickTime 7.x or QuickTime Pro.

                Yes.  I still have QT7 installed in my utilities folder.  Any thoughts on what happened to my codecs?

                  Could you post a screenshot of where you're looking for these codecs so that we can see what you're seeing?

                    Here is my output module and the quicktime options popup.  I can't screenshot the codecs because it's a pulldown.  As soon as I click anything else, it folds back up.  Here are the codecs listed:

                    This list has some subtle differences from my CS3 list.  CS5 has H.261, H.263, Planar RGB, the Sorenson Codecs, TGA, and TIFF that my CS3 does NOT have.  And CS5 is missing the DVCPro 50 NTSC and PAL, and the DV/DVCPRO NTSC codecs.

                     

                    I appreciate your assistance.

                      I see your confusion. DV50 is the same thing as DVCPRO50.
