Avid not exporting QT
on Aug 30, 2017 at 3:35:01 pm

I have just recently run into the problem of avid not exporting a QuickTime.mov. Error message reads that QT is installed incorrectly, but am able to play back all files in QuickTime player. Tried to download and install a different version of qt, but still the error. Any ideas?

Do you have QuickTime v7.6.6 installed? This is a separate install with OS X Lion v10.7 and later.

Good eve,
Sorry it took me so long to get back, I was with family.
I have reinstalled 7.6.6 and Symphony 6.0.5 but Avid is still not recognizing QT.
A couple weeks ago I tried opening a 10bit.mov file and it seemed to have corrupt the QuickTime player included with 10.7.5 .
I can't AMA link to .mov files or even import them.

Do any other applications play the file like Resolve, Adobe, VLC, etc. ?

I am able to open .mov files and play in QuickTime player.
When in Avid it will not allow .mov import, says not supported.
It will not AMA link to .mov files but can link to MXF files.
If I try to export a .mov from Avid it says cant do it because QT is not properly installed and reverts to AAF export.
Avid is not recognizing any QT.
Should there be a QT folder in Library/Application Support/Avid so Avid can locate QT Codecs? Should I do a OSX restore?
