Hi there, I did a video shoot today and the main camera was a Fuji XT3 and recording into an Atomos Ninja V. The shooter gave me the MOV files but they show up a green videos in Premiere Elements 2019.

Do I need to download Apple Quicktime 7.79 to get PE2018 to be able to edit them? Is there another, better way?

Please advise what I need to do in order to edit the files.

Thanks,

Ronald

Your screen shot shows a codec of "apch" and a format of "Prores".   Those are wonderful for those that use Apple computers and Apple's Final Cut Pro software.  Premiere Elements on a Windows PC is wonderful for more common H.264 codecs in MP4 file containers.

You can also look read a potential solution here:  Issues while importing MOV file with ProRes video format | Windows

I've never tried to convert ProRes files.  Googling for it suggests it can be done.  Here is one YouTube that says it can be done with the free and very good program called "Handbrake".

Open one of those MOV files in the free download MediaInfo. In MediaInfo, set View to Text and then copy the report the program generates and paste it to this forum.

The MOV format is not a compression system. It's just a file format or "envelope". MOVs can be made up of any of dozens of codecs or compression system, many of which are not easily editable.

Thanks everyone.

Yes, it was the Prores Codec Issue.

I found that Handbreak did give usable results if I set the conversion bitrate at 50,000. However, installing the Quicktime drivers allowed me to import the actual files into PE2018.

Not sure if I should keep the Quicktime player on my computer, since Apple is no longer supporting it. But it works.

You can remove the player and keep the codec.

I would not convert Prores with Handbrake; you will loose your 4.2.2 subsampling.

The risk of keeping Quicktime on you computer is a potential malware threat.  It is exists, it is in Quicktime.exe.  Some will name Quicktime.exe to something else.   I've not done it, but I also have read the the Quicktime windows installer has a "codecs only" option.

Actually I think the file you want to disable is QuicktimePlayer.exe, Bill. Though as you say, disabling that particular file allows you to take advantage of the Quicktime codecs without leaving the player itself vulnerable to attack.

One thing unexpected happened. I went and "uninstalled" the Quicktime Player through the Quicktime install window. The files still show up in PE2018. Thasts good.

But now, my normal WIndow's Media Player doesn't play MP4 videos anymore. Do I need to update or reinstall it now?
