I recently had some many dv tapes converted to avi files. I am going to convert them to mov. I am using mpeg streamclip. However, mpeg streamclip's viewer will not show video but audio comes through. I can convert this file to mov but the video is not present post conversion as well thus it is not present in FCPro. I can open up this same avi file in Quicktime Player just fine. What settings should I be using? Why can't I see the video before or after conversion?...it is present with Quicktime Player.
Here are my settings:
Sequence Preset - DV NTSC 48khz
MPEG Streamclip - Other Formats Settings:
Format - QuickTime Movie
Quality - 50%
Frame Size - 720 X 480 (unscaled)
Field Dominance - upper field first
Interlaced Scaling is checked
Settings for Video:
Compression Type - DV/DVCPRO - NTSC
Frame Rate - Current
Data Rate - Automatic
Compressor Quality - Best
Scan Mode - Interlaced
Aspect Ration 4:3
Filters - None
Dimensions - Compressor native
Everything else is blank or unchecked
MPGStreamclip offers a great feature. You can "rewrap" QT as AVI (or back) without rendering.
See the option in "Save as..".
That works for the codecs supported by both formats (DV, DV50,..).
About your issue;
Sounds like a codec issue.
What you get in the Info (Comm-I) when you open in QT?
