- 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?
Since Premiere Pro is a 64-bit program, it requires 64-bit codecs. Unless this Cineform codec is available as a 64-bit version, the files won't play in Premiere--end of story. You would have to convert them to something else (maybe another Cineform codec?) that is 64-bit.
I dont think you will have to convert the files.
Just upgrade the programm.
On the dv info forum they have a special section for Cineform
Or contact Cineform directly.
I had popped an email to the folks at CineForm and they got back to me with the working answer. I simply had to download and install their free Neo Player. Did that and now the files open up perfectly in Premiere Pro CS5 - no hiccups! It was a solution as simple and easy as I thought it ought to be since it was all playing fine elsewhere.
Big Shout Out and Thanks to Don Riegle, VP of sales over at CineForm. Quick reply and perfectly helpful.
Again, this was the solution:
Thanks to the community for some quick replies and suggestions
Sometimes life can be so simple
If you wish to confinue using Cineform (AspectHD, ProspectHD, etc),
with CS5 you need to purchase their upgrade to NeoHD v5. For
previous Cineform owners, the upgrade is reasonably priced.
