I am having trouble digitizing and viewing HDV files on my Mac Quad Tower. I am currently running OS 10.6.8 and FCP 7.0.3. I have digitized from my camera (a Sony z5u) a million times and I am just now having this issue. I can't even view files that I previously digitized perfectly fine on this computer and have already edited. Quicktime plays the audio but the video is black and FCP plays the audio but shows a dark green screen.
I am thinking something went wrong during an upgrade becasue I can actually still digitize and view HDV files using my laptop. The laptop is running Quicktime 10.0 (128) and FCP 7.0
So far I have tried to downgrade my Quicktime using Pacifist from 10.0 (131) to 7.3.1 but that doesn't seem to fix the problem. Has anyone else had this issue? I would really appreciate any advice you can give. Thank you!
I had a similar problem. I, in error downloaded quicktime 10. after that nothing worked properly. I couldn't even open Final Cut 7. it was a disaster. lucky for me I had made a clone of the hard drive a year earlier. I wiped the hard drive and installed the clone and all is back to normal. quicktime 10 was the culprit.
