[Solved] can't use the encoded files in adobe PR/AE on mac
i've been trying to use MagicYUV encoded files to edit but whenever i import them into said adobe apps all i get is a blank screen with seemingly no video track. is there any fix to this ?
Have you successfully installed the codec on the mac? To verify, if you uninstall it, do you get the same black screen or some other error?
What version of Adobe are you using?
Do you have sample file which doesn't open and you can send me?
@ignus i uninstalled it and installed it again, still same problem. uninstalled it again as you said and there is still a black (blank) screen.
i used mpeg streamclip to encode the file and i'm using cc19.
here's the sample file i used to test this.
i forgot to include that when i try opening it in premiere, i get this error : (file uses unsupported video compression type M8Y0)
Which version of the codec are you using (ie. installing)?
nevermind, i tried using media encoder to check if magicyuv showed up there and it did. it was under magicyuvavi and when i used the output file in premiere or after effects it worked fine. thanks for the help
Ah I see now, it was a MOV. Yes, the MagicYUV plugin only works with AVI. MOV is no longer supported, since it was working through the old QuickTime interface, which no longer works in Adobe (it has been deprecated for awhile).
The plugin now has to do AVI muxing itself, and MOV is not implemented (and likely won't be).
If you have MagicYUV MOV files lying around, ffmpeg can be used to re-wrap them into AVI without recompression. That needs some command line ffmpeg usage though.
