Apples to Avids

I'm getting some quicktime PSA files from a tv station that they say are Avid codecs. I use a Final Cut Pro system and for some strange reason can't read them. When I play or download the files I get the audio but no video. I used a windows based machine w/o Avid just to see if this was a Windows thing, but I got the same result. Is there a website with a generic plug in for my Final Cut System that will read these files correctly? I thought a Quicktime file was simply a Quicktime file, apparently not. Thanks for the help.

google search "Avid dnxhd codecs"

they are free and available to get you through this.

I've downloaded the codec from the website and can see the video thumbnails but can't select them to put in to my viewer, let alone edit them. I get a popup that says codec not found. You may be using a compression type without the corresponding hardware card. Any ideas?

If I remember correctly, (I actually did this a while back and it worked great) the codec won't let you work with DNxHD files back inside FCP but it will make it possible for your system to use QT Pro (7) to open and then transcode them to ProRes so you can edit them.
