Tools or Techniques to repair a corrupt QT movie?

Anybody know of any tools (for the PC) that can repair corrupt QuickTime movies? There are tools available for AVI files but I have found none for QuickTime.

The file is a ~60GB 480/24P movie using the Blackmagic 8 bit (2 VUY) codec (version 4.9). It was originally created using on a system with QT v6.5 and was output from Premiere Pro v1.5.1. It played fine last week (and I was able to extract portions of it for further filtering). However, it has suddenly become unplayable. The hard drive shows no corruption and other QuickTime movies play fine. I also tried copying it to a new hard drive.

I have tried QuickTime v 6.5, v7x, QuickTime alternative, Premiere Pro, and Procoder. I get the error: "failed to render the file" from QuickTime.

I can re-render the file but I really would like to avoid it (long render with filters). I have used this format for a long time and never had problems.

Any ideas?

Try VLC media player. It might offer to repair the file. It did for me on one or two AVI files.

I tried VLC and it doesn't give an error but it just moves the timeline along while nothing gets displayed. It looks like the file is bad. Oh well.

Thanks.
