I'm making a video work which I'm recording videos from The Sims 2. I used The Sims 2 for Windows and exported the videos as uncompressed AVI.
I managed to make Quicktime and After Effects to read the files flawlessly, didn't have to install any plugin, codec etc... But I can't make Final Cut or Adobe Premiere to import them... Final Cut says some sort of unrecognized error, and Premiere says there is a codec missing... But if it was a codec problem I'd have problems to open those files on Quicktime and After Effects as well no?
Well... I have to deliver this work in 2 days. I gave up and m using MPEG Streamer to convert the files to DV... Made a test with one and Final Cut red it. Dunno if the quality is going to get the same but...sigh... I don't have much time.
Just for curiosity, have anyone here experienced this problem before? Any possible solution? Always having to convert is a bit of a bother... It would b great if I could make any video edition program in OS X to read those AVI files.
