I may have set this up wrong...but I have a Premiere Pro CS6 project off a DVD on the external drive with stored in a QT 7 container (as iMovie 8 won't load external QT 7 containers) - which I understand may not be supported in iMovie 8 (only Apple QT which I already have). Anyhow, all of these Premiere CS6 pro projects in the QT 7 container on my external drive work fine in my iMovie 8 Mac v9.2.1. Are you saying that I should try to de-encode all of those projects to properly PNG/JPEG versions? Or is just the original mixes which are encoded in QT 7 that I can load up? If just the original mixes that I can hope to load up I think I can handle that.... right?
1. When you say here you are using 2GB files containing Apple MPEG-2 video data, do you mean that these are 2GB files of exported video encoded in Apple QT MPEG-2 format only, or do you mean that you have 2GB files containing Apple MPEG-2 video data (in whatever container, as long as it looks like an actual MPEG-2 video file). In the former case 2GB is enough space to export an MPEG-2 encoded video clip as long as it's a conformed clip and a 4 GB clip encoded in Apple MPEG-2 format ought to take up 2.3GB at least or more (perhaps closer to 3GB at the least). In the latter case 2GB is probably not enough space to have 2GB files that contain Apple MPEG-2 video data since an actual MPEG-2 encoded video clip is about 2.4GB. A file of size 2GB (with or without any Apple video data) can be created with the Microsoft Total Recorder and Mac Utilities tools by selecting an output file size of 2GB to set the file's DVD Drive parameters for an actual MPEG-2 encoded video clip with the following filesizes: d2c66b5586
