total catdv noob question
on Jun 22, 2011 at 6:41:44 pm

just started playing with 9 and for whatever reason I cannot get any kind of video to playback, all I get is thumbnails.
Sheesh, it must be right under my nose but I cannot for the life of me figure this out.
Be gentle, feeling exposed today!

Are you opening up a catalog or simply dragging assets in?
Can you relink or update media location?

If you drag a movie into the main window it will create a clip record with a thumbnail and a movie you can play in the Movie tab in the clip details area at the top of the window. That's presupposing the file is in a format that QuickTime knows how to play and you have the relevant codec. In some cases CatDV might be able to catalog a file and extract basic information from it but not be able to play it. What sort of video file is it?

Thanks Rolf, I am working with Matt on this.
FYI, the files in question are no frills QT videos.
Will post back when I get things straightened out.
