My .MOV , can play audio but no Video on FCP n Quicktime pro
on Sep 29, 2009 at 6:19:32 pm

I've converted my files rom my ex 1 to .mov already
so I need to edit now on FCP 5.0 and above

but all I can is import it and hear the audio but no visual of the video can be seen.

Goes the same for the quicktime pro that I just bought!!!!
Which didn't fix the problem!

So is there a codec that I need to download to view the video? Because I can't edit anything now!!!! :(

HELP PLEASE! THANKS!

You need 6.0.2 and above for the EX codec. Time to upgrade.

You must upgrade. Apple does not provide the codec separately.

You could test the Calibrated Software codec ($80 to buy) but it may come back to bite you when you do eventually upgrade. Given it's $80 to buy the codec vs $299 to upgrade the entire suite I think the latter is a bargain.

Upgrade my friend. FCP 6 or higher if you want to edit XDCAM EX. It's like $299 for FCS 3 from a valid copy of FCS 2. So surely you can swing that if you have an XDCAM EX camera.

[nikki chen] "where do I upgrade :( "

From the Apple store online. From an Apple store if one is near you. Why is where to upgrade difficult?

[nikki chen] "damn I hate my SONY EX already!!"
Why is this Sony's problem?
FCP5 is several years old.
New gear, new improvements, new and improved codecs. People who do the R&D work get paid. You buy the gear and you get paid from your clients.

Not to point any fingers but "where do I upgrade..." is a sentence often finished with: "...my bootlegged copy for free?" Hence the confusion.

Again not to make any assumptions whatsoever here about the OP, just pointing out a sad statistic.

No matter how you re-ask the question, the answer has already been given.
