P2 to quicktime
on Jan 25, 2010 at 6:00:00 am

I shoot on a P2. I transfer footage from camera to an external hard drive. I edit on fcp5.1.4.
In fcp I take the footage and convert it to quicktime clips and it is directed to my capture scratch folder..
Why then when I copy the quicktime clip from the capture scratch folder to a hard drive, it will not play on another mac? It seems like an unedited quicktime clip, but it only give me sound on another mac.
Thank you, Joel

Does that other machine have FCP installed? Without it DVCPROHD codec QuickTime files will not play.

#48 - Cannot view DVCPRO HD or HDV or ProRes on my computer.

Shane's Stock Answer #48 - Cannot view DVCPRO HD, HDV or ProRes QT files on your computer.

The DVCPRO HD, HDV and ProRes codecs only comes with FCP. If your computer does not have FCP installed, it cannot view these quicktime files. It doesn't matter if it is a Mac or PC, without FCP installed, you cannot view these files.

If you need to view ProRes material, you can download the ProRes decoder (mac and windows compatible) for ProRes

If your footage was captured as DVCRO HD you can buy the Calibrated DVCPRO HD decoder:

HDV, XDCAM? Calibrated has you covered too:

If you have MXF files from a P2 camera and you need to view the footage on a computer without FCP, you can download P2CMS from Panasonic:

Or you need the other party to compress the footage into a format your computer can play, like H.264.

CLick on my head up above this and the FCP forums...there are links to my stock answers. 3 separate articles, each covering 15 stock answers. But that only adds up to 45. I'll post the rest when I get to 60. But I should add them to the FCP FAQ...because all the rest of my answers can be found there too:
