Converting mov files to file for Premiere 2.

We have footage shot on the EX1 and converted to MOV files (the original files were erased). Is there a way to convert them to files that Premiere 2 will recognize without having to recompress them?

Try QuickTime Pro and Export your MOVie files as an AVI and selected None for compression.

I did that and the file went from 63MB to 1.5GB. Then I tried converting it to a DV file and it came out 45MB. I just sent the smaller file to my client and we'll see how it goes. Thanks.

Can't Premiere handle a Quicktime MOV? It used to back when I used Premiere 6.5.

I guess not. At least that's what I'm being told.

Premiere Pro CS3 does import MOVie files and these can be then rendered out as AVI. WuickTime Pro will do this without having to create a new timeline etc.

If memory serves me right I think the Premiere 2 also supports MOVie files.
