premiere cs4 not recognising cineform avi's in mac

Hello,
I have installed the NEOHD trial on my macbookpro. Cineform avi files I have from older PC projects work fine on the finder and final cut pro. On Premiere CS4 I get an error "unsupported compression in file" while importing.

I am running mac OSX 10.5.6

Any ideas?

Yes I was aware of that, but I didn't imagine it wouldn't even import the files. I thought that the codec would at least be recognised.
I guess not, right?

Ask support, as on the Mac CS4 should be using the QuickTime codec. We do plan improvements for Mac CS4.

Is there any news on CS4 on Mac support - I'm a recent convert to the Mac and have exchanged my license on the windows platform from PC to Mac

Thanks in advance

Tom

Tomaso, the importer we're finishing for CS4 on Windows will be ported to Mac. We have to finish it on Windows first, so I don't have a schedule on Mac for you yet.

David, will you be releasing a beta version of the mac codec while you are working on it, like you did with the windows version?

I'd be willing to test it and live with problematic playback, rather than the current no playback at all.

With the reemergence of this thread I had to reread the header carefully - the question is about AVI support in PPro-Mac. We have not tested AVI within PPro. We do know that CineForm AVI files work in First Light and also in FCP. But realize the Mac AVI reader interprets CineForm files as 8 bits.

In our next update release of HD Link (Mac) we will offer an AVI-to-MOV rewrapping utility. This is the best solution as it ensures 10-bit/12-bit compatibility for both FCP and PPro.
