  • Using .mov and mpeg-4 files in Edius 5.0

    I've mentioned this problem before but I'm still bugged by it. Whatever I seem to do to sort one lot of files out, it then seems to be worse with a new batch. I've struggled with amberalla .mov files and also with any form of mpeg file using Edius 5. I've encoded to .avi using Edius 5, Procoder 2, Quicktime Pro DIVX, WinX HD converter and so on. But I still need something that can reliably convert most .mov or mpeg-4 files to usable .avi please?

    Can anyone help?

    One of the big problems is that some of those converters mentioned above, will convert to .avi, but it is their own type of .avi, (i.e. DIVX) and Edius won't recognise them. The latest batch of files that I got only gave me audio when imported into Edius.

    It's a nightmare!

      Thanks for that feedback Anton, but it seems to be wrong. I downloaded a trial version of Edius 6.07, (or something like that) and even then the file when imported into the bin shows no video, just audio. Even then Edius does a quick conversion (neat I admit) but nothing changes and when I convert from the bin, still nothing changes!

      The file name is ******_mpeg4 but it is showing as an AVI file in the properties window. As I explained in my previous post I have tried virtually every encoder that I can think of so far but nothing works - But something must!! So someone please help because this is the first time, in possibly 10 years that Edius hasn't been able to do what I want it to do!

        Can you by chance upload one (short) file or provide a download link?

          As Gavin says, upload one of the small files.
          http://www.sendspace.com/

          Try this one. It is free and you go upload 2gb max. If it doesn't work, just do a search for another one.

            the above is not a file name of a video file

            a video file must end with an extension after the dot, like file.mov or file.avi or file.mp4 or file.wmv etc
