Cant use FCP HDV anywhere else

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok so at work, they have the campus videographer with some other media specialists. The main videographer uses Final cut pro studio with just recently a 2x quad core system. My job is for another department creating promotional videos but Im using a PC with CS3 suite.

 

All the HD .mov clips and interviews the campus videographer gives me that he has filmed and recorded utlizing FCP does not work with Adobe Premier Pro CS3, Adobe Premier Pro 2.0 or Final Cut Express 4.0 . The only way we can view it is through VLC. Even Quicktime Pro (windows and mac edition) will play them with sound only.

 

Ideas?

Woah! Don't go playing money for something that's free! :P

 

You should definitely check out the Perian plugin for Quicktime. It will allow Quicktime to play tons of codecs and video formats. Hopefully it'll will fix for your dilemma. I know it really helped me out when I started using Final Cut for editing. :P

Perian is only for mac as far as I know, and Atown wants to edit the FCP-HDV files on a PC.

 

So here is another suggestion:

 

Another option, is to download Avid's DNxHD codec. There is a Mac and PC version. They are free, and should be cross platform compatible.

 

If you choose 1080p 23.976 DNxHD 115 8-bit, it should be great quality with a reasonable data rate.

 

The download site for the codec is difficult to find, so here it is.

CODECS

 

Scroll to the bottom of the page, where you will find both the PC and the Mac version of the codec.

 

good luck,

ninetto
