UYVY files...FCP edit question
on Apr 13, 2011 at 3:47:58 pm

I just received some files that I need to edit. The files are uncompressed AVI files that QT reads as UYVY codec.
Is there a way I can get these to the point where I can edit them in FCP?
I've been able to playback in VLC Player, but cannot do anything beyond that

Thanks

Use the freebie version of Flip4Mac and see if it'll do the conversion to ProRes 422. If it does, you can then buy it.

Try with MPGStreamclip.
Is better than FC/QT to deal with AVI files.

I ran into this problem a couple of months ago, and found that all my usual tricks - MPEG Streamclip, VLC, Perian, etc. didn't work... they would get one thing right (e.g. audio), but mess up the video frame rate.

In the end, the only way I was able to solve the problem was by using Adobe Premiere Pro (Mac CS5 version). PPro could import and play the file correctly, so I then just re-exported as a DVCProHD MOV file for use on our FCP system.

If my memory serves, that particular AVI (UYVY) file is a product of the Sony Vegas editor.

Good luck!
