Welcome to the forum.
Since this is for a different make of helmet cam, the tips might not apply, but take a look at this ARTICLE.
I am surprised that QT Pro did not work well with those files, as it normally does, and is a top recommended program around here. Unfortunately, many camera mfgrs. play fast, and loose with some CODEC's. Their implementation can cause all sorts of issues.
Thank you I read over that.. I'm gonna try and open a video in QT..
Then "export" and change the extension to "MP4"............... THAT DIDN'T WORK.. it imported the Audio only but no video.. ;(
and see what that does... I wonder why some clips are able to import right in as MOV file and others not? What I would really like to do is just import them and start editing as usual..
Any other have any ideas?
Okay heres what seems to work..
if i take the video that won't import into PE7..... and open it in Quicktime, then trim just a few frames off it at the beginning and the end.. close and save my changes..
I then can drag the clip into PE7 and begin editing.. What a pain! ;-[
So very much of the success of editing depends on the camera mfgr., and how they implement various CODEC's. I feel that too many do not consider the editability of the resultant footage, as they are expecting the users to just upload to YouTube, or play on the TV.
Good luck, and at least you have found a viable workflow.
