Avenue and Windows7

Postby Gadg3ts » Wed Sep 02, 2009 19:32

So...
I will admit to having a test machine running Win7, which I'm actually quite impressed with (bypassed Vista for all the known reasons).
Now, installing Avenue on it to see how well it compares to XP, I've discovered this whole palaver about Microsoft including Quicktime components so that quicktime itself doesn't need to be installed...
What this means is, that none of my DXV encloded clips (ie *all of them*) aren't going to run, therefore making Win7 currently a bit of a dodo - installing the DXV codec 'as is' isn't helping.
Has anyone else discovered this and are there likely to be any workarounds? or is the 'all new' version of Windows going to mean the end of actually being able to use the DXV codec on new systems?..
Just a thought.

Actually I've just managed to answer my own question...

Installed QuicktimeAlt 1.81 (that version because of a posting about importing AVC from a Xacti camera into Vegas for editing, which I have to do for a wedding video!).
Installed the DXV codec using its own installer.
Copied:
C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTSystem\DXVWindows.qtx
to
C:\Program Files\QuickTime Alternative\QTSystem\
Started up Avenue, and lo and behold, it shows my clips with thumbnails. :o)
Not sure if the compositions will transfer, but it's a start!

glad quicktime alt worked. but why not just install quicktime, even if Microsoft has included some of the components, quicktime pro is still a handy app.

That would be because Quicktime from Apple doesn't include the DXV codec...
Also the QT mozilla plugin appears not to work either (on Win7 - at least on the footage pages om the resolme site).
