I have read very similar threads about this today, but none that really fit my situation!
I have a ton of IMX Quicktime files that i need to work on in FCP7. Quicktime player will play them fine, but when i try play them back in FCP (they import fine) i get the error message:
"codec not found. you may be using a compression type without the corresponding hardware card."
I have changed the easy setup to IMX 50/50 and i changed the sequence settings to match. I have checked that the IMX codec file is in; /library/quicktime (hence it plays with QT player).
Does anyone have any ideas? :-)
System specs: 8Gb Ram, dual Quad core Xeon 3Ghz, Snow Leopard, FCP7 fully updated, AJA Kona LHe card...
The Files are: MPEG IMX 625/50 (50Mps) PAL-obviously!
If anyone has any ideas why FCP wont play them, but QTplayer will play them I would love to hear it!!
Try reinstalling your KONA software, I'm not 100% certain on this but I think FCP uses AJA's flavor of IMX when the card is installed. We just upgraded to FCS3 and all is well with our IMX footage of course it NTSC.
I did kinda wonder if FCP used its codecs from the QT library or the Kona. When i open the Kona app, under 'info' where it lists codecs from library/quicktime it doesn't show the IMX codec (amongst others), should this be listed here?
