So I've got a problem here, I have huffyuv AVIs from Windows, I put them on my Mac (10.6.4) and quicktime doesn't recognize them, but MPlayer OSX Extended plays them fine. I've tried using both simple stream and MPEG Streamclip to Save As .mov, and although both programs seem to do this fine, neither one is actually able to display the video within the application. When I import the resulting MOVs into After Effects CS4, After Effects is unable to display the videos either. Am I missing a plug-in or something.....?

Can you explain what mistake you made? I'm curious to know what you thought the problem was and why it turned out not to be a problem at all...

The problem was that I couldn't use the huffyuv codec on my mac for any program (MPlayer OSX Extended has built-in stuffs, so of course that played it, but that doesn't help with AE). The solution was that in the first post, one of the first things the OP listed was to install Perian. Bingo, problem solved.

As a side note (at least for me) AE CS4 on OSX can read/use huffyuv in a .AVI container (after I installed Perian, of course), so no need to swap containers to .MOV there.

I am the OP. :amv:

Also, please report if it stays useful in .avi, as I have said sometimes it'll work in .avi in then later it'll just go all GHFGHFGHFGHF and decide to never allow .avi again.

I'm terribly sorry, I didn't remember who started this topic and decided not to go back and check, to my humiliation -_-

I'll keep you posted on .AVI support as I work...

One last thing, at the end of my .AVS I have ConvertToRGB32() or whatever that line is. In VirutalDub when I choose huffyuv as the compressor (fast recompress - on) does it keep it in RGB32, or is it doing more color conversions? I would rather not convert more than YUVx (DVD SOURCE) --> RGB32 (AVI FOOTAGE) --> YUV12 (FINAL MASTER), so I was wondering if I'm adding more conversions with this method?

Meaning, using crossover then through that using AMVaap it will alow encoding?
What about codecs, stay on crossover but to they "go" to NLE's awell?

Cause i asked something like: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=104515

This depends upon what step you mean by "encoding." Codecs need to be applied both inside and outside of the crossover/wine environment.

As long as you can find a mac version of the codec, then its use inside of and outside of the environment, as in the case say vdubmd vs final cut pro, will be possible. Last time I checked, and I should maybe do more research again, the one lossless codec that meets this criterion is HUFFYUV.

If by encoding you mean "distribution" that is a slightly different matter.

I'm seriously looking at dropping Win 7 64-bit and loading Snow onto this CQ56.
.. in order to switch, I need to know that I can
1) DVD rip to "whatever is understood by MAC's Editors"
2) have at least one LossLess Codec which is understood "by that editor"
3) when finished, to have something like Zarx264GUI to help "encode the FINAL presentation".

I normally don't use much, so far; only a Utube downloader and Safari.

..? .. anything else needed? :?:

and, yes; I'm quite serious about switching systems!

I have some old amvs that I would like to polish up with avisynth, to see what I can make of the sort of bad quality. I've never used avisynth before, though, so I am not familiar with the process. Naturally I've read through the topic, but I wanted to ask what the steps for post-processing rather than pre-processing are.

1. I have MPEGstreamclip and Perian. I don't assume I need the ripper, since it's only for DVDs. Which would be a better program to install if I only need it for cleaning? WINE or Crossover?

2. So when I have everything installed, where do I go from there? The amvs I want to post-process have various formats, the early ones are .dv, after that most are H.264 .mov or .mp4. I need to end up with an avs file to write the commands, no? Since I don't have any VOB files to open, how do I get those?

I'd be very thankful about a reply!
