Problems with Importing .Mov files
on Nov 10, 2009 at 12:01:28 am

I have a situation where the Uncompressed Quicktime .MOV file is not being displayed in AE but can only be displayed when you play it. Here's the screen shot.

This is the No Compression Quicktime file in AE:

Also in Vegas Pro (notice TWO audio track. its supposed to be a video AND audio track):
http://i36.tinypic.com/15c9kk.jpg

And the other Quicktime file, probably compressed:

But it still should work with the original file with no compression for quality purpose. I tried reinstalling Quicktime. No luck.

Help!

your 'no compression' is still an encoded file (as all files are), so it uses a codec that has no compression. but you don't have the codec to decode the uncompressed file.

hopefully you can just ask someone what codec the exported/captured this file as, then download the codec, of they can send you a file encoded as quicktime lossless animation (or some other high quality code that you have).

if you can't ask, then maybe you can tell us anything you know about the file (where it came from, capture device, nle, etc..) and we can try to figure it out.

you could try opening the file in quicktime. it still won't read the fie without the codec, but you can view the movie inspector to see if it says what the codec is.

my guess is that it is a proprietary capture card codec, like aja 8-bit uncompressed or blackmagic/decklink 8-bit uncompressed.
