remember the Discreet *edit system

hey everyone,

I have an old $25,000 paper weight, otherwise known as Discreet *edit.

I've got some old projects on it that I want to work on, but I'd like to port the footage over to my newer system (CS3 Premiere).

As far as I can tell, The codec that was used is TVMJ (Truevision MJpeg). Anyone know if there is a codec available to make this play on newer systems, or a converter?

Thanks,

Sterling

This might help; it decodes TVMJ, and there is a free trial version.

Thanks for your help. I actually found that download, and it works perfectly. The only problem is that all timecode information is lost, so it's a pain to conform to an EDL.
