I've just bought my first Mac (Snow Leopard) and installed Pro Tools 9.
I have imported a mp4 video, the sound works but the video doesn't appear. I have done some research and it seems .mp4 and .AAC formats don't agree with PT, I've installed Perian which hasn't helped.
I have looked into converting the .mp4 file to something like a .mov or .avi. I have tried MPEG Streamclip to convert it but all I get is 'error can't prepare movie'.
Members have recommended QT 7 Pro to convert files but with research it doesn't function with the QT 10 player? (Thread: Working with video: What tools can’t you live without?)
Has anyone got any ideas, I have no video editing software is it worth buying something to help with these issues?
Edit: Would buying something like Premiere, Final Cut Pro or Vegas be easier to deal with? Can they export and handle high bit rate audio 192khz?
