Hi

I have been using Effects Lab for several years now on the same Laptop. I haven't upgraded to Lion because I need to keep using this program.

I just got a mac System update and quicktime updates, and now when I import a .mov
file, it just sees the video as black. The same videos I was using this morning... and now its all black.

I'm not sure what to do here and this is incredibly frustrating.

Thanks.

What codec does the Quicktime file use? Apple sometimes introduces changes to some of their codecs that we have seen cause conflicts like this before; The Intermediate Codec has been problematic in the past. The solution may be converting the video file to a different codec, or rolling back Quicktime to the previous version.

DVCPRO HD (720p60), Linear PCM, Timecode

Is the Codec listed under GET INFO on the MOV files I was using.

I didn't have Time Machine running, so would there be another way of getting back the Old Version of Quicktime?

I am just exporting the default settings from FCP, so I'm not using any other settings, so I'm not sure how I would switch codecs.

Thanks.

If you Export Using Quicktime you can chose any codec you want. That info is from the .mov files after they were exported from FCP?
