View Full Version : QT .mov files load on one pc but not the other?

12-08-2009, 01:25 PM
I have two LW installations that share same server regarding plugins.
I used some QT mov files as surfaces in a scene and they load fine
on one pc but on the other they fail. (format not recognised).
(i work on one pc an render on another)

I could not identify any specific QT/.mov importer plugin in my plugins dir.

Any bright ideas are appreciated

Has the problem computer got a 64 bit OS installed??

I remember problems with using QT(which is 32 bit) on 64 bit OSes.

Yeah..it was worth a try :)

I'm sure one of the PC guys would pop in with an answer....best of luck!!

yeah. i got it now. Actually mov files wouldn't play in the mediaplayer at all so i installed
qtLite on the machine and all is fine. Somehow i did not expect that i needed a win-codec to import a certain filetype into layout, well, there you have it.

Hope this will help others in the future as i could not find this issue with several searches on the net.
