Hello everyone,
I've got Vision Lab Studio for Mac, so most times I use .mov files. But everytime I try to import a .mov file, Vision Lab Shows me just a black video without any colors, just black.
Maybe anyone knows how I can fix it. If not I just have to convert all files into .avi .

Thanks + Greets

Are the videos coming out of iMovie? Its most likely the codec; if the .mov files are using the Apple Intermediate codec, it doesn't play well with others. Export your .mov files to pretty much any other codec and you'll be fine. I'd recommend the Animation codec.

Ok thanks very much. No the videos comes out from my camcorder (JVC Everio). How can I change the codex? Which program can I use?

Thanks

I thought all the Everio line used AVCHD footage, and a .mod file extension, rather than .mov? I reckon you'd know better than I though, since you have one. Anyway, if you have QuickTime Pro ($30 US) it is pretty much the ultimate tool for video file conversion, as far as I'm concerned.

If you have another program you use for general video editing, it is likely also capable of handling the conversion. Or perhaps check out the free Any Video Converter.
