.mov with Timecode and Linear PCM codecs won't import to FCP7
on Oct 8, 2012 at 11:36:31 pm

I'm trying to import a .mov file with Timecode and Linear PCM codecs into FCP 7 sent from a client. I've asked for the file to be sent as a .mov with a png codec, but I'm unsure if I'll get them soon or if at all. I have one file, a .mov with a png codec, from them that worked. Is there a plugin I can download to get the other .mov to work in QuickTime FCP or any other program? I have QuickTime 7 and the VLC player, but they only read the audio. Thanks for the help!

That makes me scratch my head. I wouldn't know what to do if you asked me to do that. PNG is a PHOTO compression, not video. So I don't see how they will get you that.

And LINEAR PCM is an audio type...not video codec. What is the CODEC the client is trying to send you? .MOV is not a codec, but a container. That mean's its a QUICKTIME file.
