Hello everybody.
I've got some captured dv avi files from Edius in XP, but i can't load them in FinalCut.
Is there any way, codec or something that allow the file to be imported in FinalCut?

When i try to play the file, it opes as a white clip, and quicktime ask for some codec.

Anyone has a solution, other than open the file in XP (edius) and export using the MS codec?
Cause it's time consuming that way.

Regards

Try MPEG streamclip to convert it to DV quicktime file. Still takes some time but a lot less than recapturing it.

I tried MPEG Streamclip, but is not working either.
Audio is present, but not video.
I googled about this, and it seems there is no workaround, except to re-export from edius as a MS avi file.
But then, i must Manage clips inside Final Cut, due to slow response of the avi files.
Unfortunately too much time and HDD space.

Hi, I just started taking my first steps in FCPS2.
I mostly work on a PC Premiere pro.

I needed material to test on the FCP, so I too tried to import Canopus DV, and I god the White screen as well.

I have on my Windows a great conversion program - that every editor must have:
Canapus Procoder - version 3 can be found cracked.

basically it can convert everything to almost everything, with the abillity to tweak a lot.

one of the presets supports Editing software > FCP quick time... that should do the job.

tell me how its going on...
