  • File type imports

    I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but I thought that 6.5 would import files that have .mp4 - and that perhaps even .flv files, but I keep getting that I cannot import those type-- am I doing something wrong?

    I think I'm losing my mind!--- thanks so much!----Ed

    Found something that works!

    I just realized if I change the extension to .mov that the file works flawlessly-- it will import, play and can be edited perfectly!-- who wudda thunk!

      EDIUS imports lots of different files but there are so many ways to make MP4s that sometimes it does not work. I have also had major problems trying to import FLV into lots of programs. Good to know you found a way to make it work.

          Not always, but worth a try.

            I use this free brilliant utility

            FVLEXTRACT - it pulls the h.264 out into an mp4 without recompressing

            Edius edits the MP4 file with ease

                Changing a file name extension is the same a renaming a file:

                Right mouse click on the filename, select "Rename", use your cursor and keyboard to change .flv to .mov, and then click outside of the file name window to effect the change.

                Sometimes you may get a Windows warning regarding possible file instability, etc., due to the file extension change.

                  If you have a large number of files to rename, "Media Chance" the makers of "DVDLab" have a small utility called "File Renamer".
                  It used to be free but they now charge a small sum but all you do is select a directory, select change and type (dot) file extension and the same (dot) new file extension and select all and thats it after confirming
                  Saves heaps of time

                      They charge for ren *.flv *.mov? I hope it does more but still... :(
