    Import .MOV

    300L

      Hi, after a windows 7 reinstall I can't import my .MOV (Apple Photo JPEG) files anymore. I have tried QuickTime 7.68.75.0, QuickTime 7.69.80.9 and QuickTime_Alternative_322. But no picture in PPCS5, just the audio...

       

      Is there any 64 bit version of QuickTime or what's the problem?

          There is no 64-bit version of QT for the PC yet. The newer versions should install all Apple CODEC's, but it seems that something is happening to keep them from being installed on your systm.

           

          I do not recall if there are any Apple CODEC's that are unlocked, when one upgrades to QT Pro. As I have had the Pro version on all my machines for the full run of the 7.x series, I cannot even check that for you.

           

          Do you know the exact Apple CODEC used in these MOV files? It might be as simple as getting that CODEC and installing it. Could be one that is NOT included in QT?

           

          Good luck,

            From GSpot;

            Codec = jpeg

            Name: Apple Photo JPEG

             

            Maybe it works with a codec pack like ffdshow or do u know where to find just the "jpeg" codec I need?

              If you like reinstalling, go ahead and install FFDShow. A rather sure way to cripple your system.

               

              With MJPEGS, consider Mainconcept or Morgan.

                I have installed:

                QuickTime 7.69.80.9

                ffdshow_rev3785_20110323_clsid_x64

                ffdshow_rev3800_20110328

                mjpegcodec-3.2.4

                 

                But it still don't work

                  For Apple's Photo-JPEG CODEC, you might want to look HERE.

                   

                  I've got it installed on my system, and do not recall doing a download/install of it specifically. That could point to it being installed with Apple's QT Pro, which I have on all machines. As all of my QT's are Pro, I cannot even check to see if QT Player (regular) installed it - sorry.

                   

                  Good luck,

                    QT Pro doesn't install anything more. It's the same installer.

                     

                    I tried Morgan M-JPEG codec V3 which support QuickTime Photo-jpeg streams. But still the same problem.

                     

                    Good info HERE but no solution or codec to install.

                     

                    I don't know what to do? Maybe next step is to reinstall Premiere Pro....

                     

                    I think there is another problem. Ffdshow don't work...

                      GSpot is pretty much worthless for QuickTime; get MediaInfo instead and analyze a file with it. Go to Text mode and copy and paste the results here.

                       

                      If these are truly PhotoJPEG, there is no reason they won't import into CS5:

                       

                      photojpeg.png

                       

                      You have installed a bunch of unnecessary stuff that you should get rid of: ffdshow, QT Alternative, Morgan, and anything else. Just install the latest version of QT Player. Do the files play back in QuickTime Player?

                        Here are the results from 3 different .MOV files from 3 different cameras. Movie 01 and Movie 02 import fine into CS5 but they just show me the audio (just like without QT installed). Movie 03 works great cause "Format : AVC" instead of "Format : JPEG".


                        Yes the files play back in QuickTime.


                        After uninstalled Morgan it's red marked in GSpot "List codecs and other filters" reason "File Missing".

                          Hi

                           

                          I'm curious to know if you have made any progress with this issue since your last post?

                           

                          Even though I'm using Premiere Elements and not Pr. Pro, I have exactly the same problems importing .mov files in photo jpeg. I can play the files in Quick Time and Windows Media Player. But not import into Elements Organiser or Premiere ...

                           

                          Should I try reinstalling Elements?

                            I reinstalled Premiere Pro CS5 and selected to keep my settings. Still got the problem

                             

                            It's weird that everything was fine before I bought an SSD, changed to ACHI in BIOS, reinstalled Windows 7 x64 and changed some Windows settings for my SSD.
