    Importing a quicktime movie into Avid Xpress Pro

    When I am importing a quicktime movie I often only recieve audio but no image. This isnt consistant so I am not sure why this happens - any advice would be great!

    Is the video black or white after import?  Often times, things like this are related to not having the correct codec installed on your system.  You can check the QT file's codec by looking at the "Inspector" in QT Player.

    As Kenton has indicated, a white video usually indicates that the codec is missing, which means that you don't have that codec installed.

    Once you have opened the QT in QT itself and gone to the Movie Inspector, have a look to see what codec is being used (it will be indicated under 'format').  This is the one that you need to install.

    Some codecs are free and some require purchase.

    ..and to add to this..  it is not a question of 'switching' to a codec.  If the codec is installed, it will play correctly.
