I do not have Quick Time on my PC asit is 64 bit and QT does not seem to work. I copied a number of beta tapes using PE Pro on a PC that had QT. The file names all showed the QT icon along with the name and .avi. I tried several other video programs with no luck before I go PR Pro which will directly open .avi files. No when I try and import one of these files it appears in th eproject panel as a audio file even thoogh the ID is still.avi. How do I change thes files back to video files?
Depending on what is inside of the AVI "wrapper," you might not need QT Player, but if its icon is showing, I would puzzle over that. If you would look over this ARTICLE, and report on the CODEC inside the AVI wrapper, that will likely tell the story.
