Help, first 6 and. AVI files...?

Hi, I have 6 first, it's fine for my needs, far-, has been a few years since I used it because I don't have much use to be honest, but I bought a camera to sport/headset recently to record my adventures but I can't open all files in first for editing, what can I do?

The files are saved as .avi

I get this message "the file uses a compression format that is unsupported.

I spent hours looking on the net to find answers or solutions and either do not understand them or they do not work. Looked here and they suggested to change file names - can not do this or know how, or open it in photoshop and save as jpeg - won't open the files in PS, so can't do it, or open it in something like windows movie maker and save it as something else - who can't either? Also contacted support here, but they weren't at all, just suggesting that I update to the latest version - not really a help option!

Thus, any suggestions - something simple and easy to understand and follow it please. I'm banging my head against a brick wall at the moment and it gives my headaches trying to resolve this issue--you think that it would be something simple as downloading something then it would support the format, Yes?

Or recommend my other thing, cheap and easy to use for this kind of editing. I found creating easy to use when I needed a few years before and would like to stick to what I know, but if you can't do it I'll have to get something else?

Thank you.

OK, Motion JPG. See this THREAD for some comments on and suggestions for people.

I believe I have provided links to two CODECS for MJPEG. PR sometimes has problems using the CODEC, even those that are properly installed. Both mentioned * seem * work just fine in PR.

Thanks for posting the screen-cap G - Spot. You obviously have a JPG CODEC of movement, but it is possible that Pr does everything just not good with her. Different actors could use it successfully, but NLE's many more players.

Good luck

  • Reduced quality of .vob and avi files

    Hi guys

    I need help please.

    I'm working on a version of adobe elements 10 on a new macbook pro lion trail.

    No problem application installation.

    When I import video in vob to dvd or avi format, the quality of the video is extremely reduced, there is no line black white, no breaks, just low quality.

    On the low right side, the application tells me it's what we call consistent.

    When I play the same video in vlc on a mac or on my pc, the video works fine without any problems and the picture is clear.

    I tried the things suggested to support:

    1 rendering

    2. check the fps are the same, the original video is 25 frames per second

    3 tried to use application to convert vob to mp4 at all different levels of quality by using the external program (wondershare converter ultimate for mac video)

    Elements looks like an excellent program, closest to the magix I used to run on my pc, but the problem at the moment, it is that the quality is reduced.

    Is there a codec problem?

    Avi and vob files are not recognized by quicktime.

    Please let me know as soon as possible

    Thank you


    The preview window is not intended to be used as a judge of the quality of the image. The resolution is normally reduced somewhat because the computer is much more than a simple display when you preview an effect.

    There is a life high of qiality for preview or normal (I think that right clciking on the photo or one of the parameters) try the superior quality

    Faster computer, video card, and more memory, the better will be the preview even if not rendered.

    Also try full-screen preview.

    The important thing is the quality of the final product. Is that what this poor too in your case?

  • codecs and .avi files

    Hi, I posted a question yesterday on .avi and there was some useful answers. I installed GSpot and it tells me that the video file CODEC is MJPG/Motion JPEG, a digital camera Olympus Pen EPL1, and there is no required CODEC on the audio file. He said then the MJPG CODEC is installed on my computer, then why when I import the file into the first Elements 9, it renders very bad quality?


    For the predefined project, you can go to the toolbar at the top of the main editing screen and look at Edit > properties for the project, at least that which was moved in PrE 9.

    When CODECS are installed properly in the system, and they are those who pre can use, the program will use with the highest priority for the import. It is usually the last installed. Export/share (MJPEG is rarely used here), we got a drop-down list, which will be available in Advanced and compressor or similar syntax, but the exact location may vary by format, and also all the CODECS aren't available, there still according to the chosen format.

    MJPEG, to not more than one of these two. If one has a MJPEG CODEC, installed from utility disk from the camera (could be separate install, with the driver or included it editing software), they should not need to install others, such as the camera mfgr. has optimized the contained, usually with the CODEC used by the control.

    As you have the MJPEG CODEC installed, I would look first in the match between the screening of the project and source files. If there is still a gap, then hit Enter to restore the timeline or parts of it, should get a good smooth reading - Redline turns green.

    Check for a first report, offset, and then we can move a few steps.

    Good luck


    PS - I'm a big fan of the ONLY installation that the exact CODEC when required and NOT only install CODECS, that can be found. Keep his computer as clean, is it possible, is paramount.

  • How to convert AVI files for first CS4 (Mac) with VLC - Please Help!

    Hi thanks for the reading-post it here for the first time.

    I'm another grass sorry, trying to convert AVI files, so I can import them into first CS4 on a Macbook Pro laptop. I am using VLC on the macbook to perform the conversion. I don't want to use free converters such as iSquint (tried and many others) b/c they cause a significant loss of video quality. But I'm trying to do it for free! (I'm broke).

    Been read tons here and on other forums to get advice first, but in my view, none is really specific to my situation.

    I'm fine (slight quality loss) video but NO Audio. I want the audio too!

    AVI files seized on an old NV3 camera SD card.

    VLC said the Codecs for these files I got off the SD card are as follows:
    0 workflow:
    Type - video
    Codec - MPEG - 4 (XVID) video
    Resolution - 640 x 480
    Rate - 30

    Stream 1:
    Type - Audio
    Codec-MS ADPCM (audio ms)
    Channels: Mono
    Sampling frequency - 22050 Hz
    Bits per sample - 16

    I tried several different configurations with VLC conversion according to the documentation of "Supported file Formats for import in first CS4": l

    For example I tried to convert the same file as follows:

    Wrapper MPEG 1 - converted with MPEG-1 VIDEO 1024 bits/Audio MP3 192-bit
    Wrapper MPEG 1 - converted with MPEG-1 VIDEO 1024 bits/Audio MP3 128-bit
    Wrapper MPEG 1 - converted with MPEG-1 VIDEO 1024 bits/MPEG Audio 128-bit
    Wrapper MPEG 1 - converted with MPEG-2 VID 1024 bits/Audio MP3 128-bit
    Wrapper MPEG 1 - converted with MPEG - 1 1024 bits/MPEG Audio 16 bit VID
    Wrapper MPEG 1 - converted with MPEG - 1 1024 bits/MP3 Audio 16 bit VID

    When converting to MP4 (MPEG-4) I get a general error while importing first so no dice on that, and I tried a lot of other configurations/combinations, but not all. 

    I check each result with VLC before import into the Prime Minister and they play both audio & video fine with VLC.

    My question is the following: what settings can I select in VLC for audio first? Or if there is a specific codec I need to download and install a download link... would be much appreciated.

    Alternative solution?...

    If I put these files on the SD card in my camera and click on and drag them on the macbook pro laptop as AVI files (instead of dragging to a PC first, as was the case)... don't you think it would make a diff?  Also, I tried sucking to the top of the camera first, but that didn't work... the camera turns on when connected to the computer... so that you can not navigate to a file on the camera and then use the GUI first to suck.

    I have a laptop. These original files play well with Windows Movie Maker because I downloaded the appropriate codec. Hi and low tried a mac version of this codec without result. CS4 my install discs do not work on Windows/PC. Trust me I wish they did! Even the configuration required on the package is in the absence of any mention of Windows. Windows Movie Maker convert .mov... that was my first game b4 plan, I realized that VLC was quite robust and user-friendly in its Export Wizard codec functionality.

    Any help would be much appreciated! I swear! I'm banging my head against the wall and I want to just change already!

    Thank you!

    Do not use the flow function; This isn't what you are doing.  (Although technically, I don't think it matters)

    Use the convert/save option.  The first screening, video - H.264 + AAC (MP4), should work great.  Don't change anything.  Save the file with a MOV or MP4 extension.

    If you get audio weird sounding, then create your own preset that matches the Video - H.264 + AAC (MP4) preset, uncheck only Audio the Audio tab and convert to video.  Then run convert/Save using the Audio - CD preset.  Save the file as a WAV (or an AAC?).

    Import the 2 files into PR.  You shouldn't have synchronization problems if the points are aligned in when you add them to the sequence.

  • . AVI file shows video in first pro CS4

  • New to CS4 - cannot preview or make Xvid .avi files? Help, please!

    Yo!  I'm sure that these problems have a simple cause and solution, but it's been over a decade that I used latest creation, and now I'm completely lost.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I'm working with images timelapse compiled into VirtualDub and compressed using the latest build of Xvid.  When I import these .avi files and try to rub in the source window, first works without problem, but the video does not play.  When I move the clips to the timeline, the nasty red line indicates that they are to be rendered.  However, after, they display the same behavior in the output pane.  Cursors move, but the clips are stuck on the first picture!

    By the way, is it typical for first having to restore a .jpeg file in order to work with it?  This is the case with me.

    If anyone can help me with this, it will save me a lot of disappointment.  Thanks for the research!

    PS - Oh and my basic system profile:

    Windows 7 RC

    E8200 Core2Duo, 2.66 Ghz

    4gig Ram

    9600 GT GFX card

    I wonder why you don't have DV - AVI Type II as a choice. Is this a limitation of VirtualDub?

    If you want quality, then no compressed will be the best of your choice here, but with the giant files. Look at adding to your system, but perhaps Lagarith as MS DV, VirtualDub CODEC will not see?

    Second choice would be MS Video 1, but you may experience OOS issues.

    Good luck


  • How do I edit metadata for wmv, avi and mp4 files in WINDOWS XP.

    Hello world

    I have windows xp professional sp3 and windows media player 11. I am not aware that with my system, I can use anything beyond wmp11.

    I have a filmmaker who does not use Mac (I really don't like them). As such have hundreds of video files, both my own and friends, colleagues and clients. I'm * REALLY * try to organize my files and I wanted to add metadata to the videos so that I can search by category, type and the names of the people who participated in the production. I tried to make this easier by using the metatags as 'comments' and 'Keywords' etc. I thought it was a pretty simple procedure - just right click on the file and change the properties.

    I tried everything that comes to mind and spent 3 hours in all research on this question with NO results! Each awnser I've seen so far does not help me. Unless really miss me something.

    I imported video files in my library. I can't get the "Advanced Tag Editor" appears with movie files. I understand not only with audio files. I downloaded abcavi editor and who does nothing, I can't always find the files and when I right click on them and look at their properties, they remain dimmed. I used adobe bridge (cs4) and meta-data that application only works when you use it. I don't want to have to ramp bridge and sacrifice the memory just to perform a task which should be simple and accessible using my operating system.

    any help is really very much appreciated.

    Thank you very much in advance.


    AudioShell adds tabs for metadata to the properties of the file to many formats, including WMV and MP4.

    As far as I know, there is nothing like this for AVI files, so you will need to use the external abcAVI for this. Note that AVI has very bad assumption, marking, so you're usually better with WMV or MP4.
