    Hi,

    on what resolution and codec are you working?  Do you have any i/o-Box? Is there black or still picture? Can you scrub?

    Best regards,

    Re: No Video playback in the Composer window, but the audio works

    Hi, thanks for the replies. I installed driver version 190.38 QT version 7.6.6

    my screen resolution is 1920X1080,is that what you mean?

    where do I check about the codec?

    I dont have i/o-Box.

    there is a still picture.

    if you mean by scrub-taking the movie back and forth, then yes I can do it very easily.

    Re: No Video playback in the Composer window, but the audio works

    Hi,

    no I meant your video clip resolution, are you working in SD, HD, 720, 1080, i or p project?

    Also the video codec is interesting when you have performance issues. If you don´t know which codec you are working on you could look it up in your bin (make sure video is switched on in your columns) or in the timeline (fast menu -> clip text -> clip resolutions has to be turned on)

    Have you tried it with a different videoclip with different codec/resolution?

    Most of such problems are with quicktime version/videocard driver. Did you installed the driver from the avid utilities folder on c drive?

    Best regards,

    Re: No Video playback in the Composer window, but the audio works

    Did you apply an effect?

    Because a black screen with audio is what you get until that effect has been rendered.
    You can scrub through, but not playback.

    That is true for blue dot effects, which must be rendered for realtime playback, but not for green dot effects, which will play unrendered in real time.

    Unfortunately it seems that there is no black picture

    "there is a still picture"

    Re: No Video playback in the Composer window, but the audio works

    So if you load a clip into the source monitor you see a still frame.

    If you drage the position indicator along the frame updates.

    If you click play the frame freezes until you stop play and then it updates to the current parked frame?

    Is that correct?

    Sounds like a vieo overlay issue. Is your composer window home'd properly? when you start play does the window flash a white line round the outside a few times first?

    Are yu sure there are no otehr windows touching or overlaying the playback window.

    Has the system ever played back video correctly?

    Re: No Video playback in the Composer window, but the audio works

    Most of my movies are 720p  but also low resolution movies does'nt  run.

    I think my codec is DNxHD HD(720p).

    I downloaded the driver from the Internet, I'l try also those in the Avid directory

    thnx

    If this is indeed what is happening, it is almost always attributable to either an unqualified graphics card, an incorrect graphics card driver version, or both. Use one of the driver versions that you'll find in the utilities folder, if you are not already.

    Re: No Video playback in the Composer window, but the audio works

    Just to summarize the suggestions:

    Have you tried resizing the source/record window to smaller size?

    Do you see flashing white border around source/record window when you hit the play button?

    Did your system ever played video before?

    You could try to deinstall VGA driver and quicktime, reboot and make a clean install of both. Be sure to use the drivers in avid utilities folder for VGA.
