Have a look at Perian, a codec pack for Macs, that might overcome your
playback issues. It is also best to stick with standard formats such as
DV AVI or H264 AVC. Macs really only work smoothly with material in the
MOV container ins a small number of formats, but Perian can probably
help you stretch this a bit further. You could also look at
MPEGstreamclip for converting your videos to easier to work with

I have been working with students on the unit of competence CUFDIG301A -
Prepare Video Assets. We are using Adobe Premiere as I understand it to
be an industry standard software product. We have been encountering
numerous problems with the import files using Macs. Even  though the
files are .avi, they don't playback in Premiere on the MAC (of course
they work perfectly fine on my Windows PC). Anyway, upon further reading
of the official UoC it mentions in the range statement that MovieMaker
may be used.


Can anyone advise me whether I can switch to Windows Live MovieMaker if
students continue to have problems? I suppose it will limit what we can
do w.r.t. green screen but at least it will work.
