    problem importing some Aiptek .mov files

    One file imported fine into MV 5.0.3, the others only play audio and display the opaque white screen. They do the same thing in CS5 Premier Pro; however, they play both video and audio from my desktop in the VLC player, so I know I recorded video. What import setting do I need to change?

    Hi,

    It sounds like the codec used to create the problem files might be causing the problem.  Do the .mov files play in Quicktime?  If so, you should be able to link to them using AMA and play them that way (or transcode them if your system isn't fast enough to play them).

    ciao,

    Re: problem importing some Aiptek .mov files

    Hi, Carl,

    Thanks for your speedy reply.

    No, I only get audio (and black screen) in QT Pro player. The system I'm working on is an i7 Sony Vaio with 6GB RAM and a 72,000rpm HD. I haven't had it very long, but it seems pretty fast. And one of the files imported fine. I quite possibly changed a setting because I've been working on other projects in XDCAM EX and HDV at the same time. But I promised a student I'd edit and convert these Aiptek files to .wmv for his PowerPoint...arghhh.

    Hi,

    mbr:

    What codec was used to create the files?  Press CTRL+i in Quicktime to get the movie inspector up to tell you what codec it was.
