Also, what version of QT is installed?
Another possible solution would be to create a New Project in CS5, and then try to Import the CS4 Project into it.
I had that happen on three projects when I converted from CS4 to CS5. The fix is frustrating, but rather painless. Somehow CS5 corrupts the wrapper for the files and it loses track of what's inside of them. It cannot be fixed by trashing your preferences or deleting previews. Rather, you have to fix it by re-wrapping the source files.
The files I was working with were RED files in a .mov wrapper, but I've helped other folks working with other files. So far the constant seems to be the .mov wrapper, though it doesn't happen with all .mov files.
And here's the fix:
- Download MPEG Streamclip, and unzip it--no install needed. The latest beta version is fine.
- Open one of the broken files in MPEG Streamclip.
- Select File > Save As, and select a new save location. You probably want to keep the file name the same as the original (this is the default).
- Hit OK.
(Fix shamelessly stolen from Colin Brougham where he typed it into my question.)
FYI, you'll also need to relink the files in PrPro once they're re-wrapped...
BTW, THis fix did not work. Thanks for the attempt
Sorry to hear that... have you tried creating a new project in CS5 and importing your CS4 project into it? (Not the CS4-->CS5 converted project, but the original CS4 project)?
Can you complete the steps I requested above? Get MediaInfo and post a report from the file. Otherwise, we have nothing to go on but conjecture.
