    CineForm 2.5 not migrating into Premiere CS5

    brainroot

      I am in the process of migrating from Sony Vegas 7.0* to Premiere Pro CS5. Vegas 7.0 came packaged with CineForm Connect HD 2.5 as an intermediate AVI codec. Therefore I have a lot of AVI files in the CineForm 2.5 intermediate codec.

       

      ** THE ISSUE **

       

      Premiere only imports these CineForm 2.5 Intermediate AVI video files as audio files.

       

       

      POINTS TO NOTE:

      - Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic both play back the intermediate video files without any issues, and Vegas still plays them fine, so the codec isn't broken.

      - Vegas 7.0 is installed as an (x86) program where as CS5 is obviously installed as a 64-bit program. Is it possibly that the codec hasn't been registered correctly?

       

       

       

      So, anyone out there got suggestions for how to help a fella out? How do I get Premiere to properly recognize these fiiles that are whole and undamaged and readable by the computer?

       

      Many thanks,

      * Yes, I've been editing in Vegas. Deal with it. It rocks in many ways. Those ways admittedly aren't project management, but as a single-sequence/timeline editing program it is much more versitle than premeire. Yet as a handler of large projects, it sucks. Alas.
