Having issues opening a premiere cs4 project in cs5. The machine I was using with Cs4 has died, so I'm trying to continue the project with CS5.
Whenever I open the project I get a message saying "this project contained a sequence that could not be opened, No sequence preview preset or file or codec could be associated with this sequence type."
I have the latest version of premiere cs5 installed, and quicktime. The footage I was using was from a Canon 7D.
btw I'm also using Windows 7, and the old machine I was using with CS4 was also running Windows 7

What CODEC is INSIDE that file? http://forums.adobe.com/thread/440037?tstart=0
Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below
That message just means the old machine had something on it the new one doesn't. AJA or Blackmagic hardware, for example. Or a missing codec like Lagarith or UT.
Find out what's missing, and put it back.
