THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! THE RAD VIDEO ADVICE WAS FANTASTIC! NOW I CAN DO MY UNI ASSIGNMENT! reply

Feedback


The Rad Video tools worked like a charm - very fast, easy and no loss of quality. I then imported it into Movie Maker, and again, when I click on the clip, it’s great. That is, until I drag it onto the timeline to actually place it in a movie. Then it slows down and is not useable. Is there some other step I’m missing? reply

I too am trying to convert MOV (created on a Kodak camera) to AVI. I’ve read the previous posts and downloaded the RAD-Bink software. It converts my files very quickly but when I try to play the video on WMP it goes in very slow motion (it takes a 30 second video 8 minutes to play). The audio portion however converts fine). I’ve tried selecting all of the codec options but they all do the same thing. Any suggestions to fix this are appreciated. Thanks in advance for help with this. reply

I’ve recently written up my experiences on this on my web site,

I offer a workaround solution to Kodak’s mess.

Kodak doesn’t want to know about it. It’s very disappointing.

Thanks for the information Dr. John - you seemed to have covered all the issues I’ve been dealing with. I appreciate the work you put into it. It’s a great help. reply

It appears that people are still asking the same question AFTER I posted my response on 2/22/05. Stop asking the same questions and stop trying different software. Follow the instructions that DAVEMAZM gave you earlier by using RiverPast Video Cleaner. If that doesn’t work, then you can go back to forums and try to find a better answer but GIVE THAT A TRY FIRST. Believe me, it really did solve the problem. Contact Dave at DAVEMAZM@aol.com or if you like, you can also email me but give Dave credit for the solution. reply

Ditto Georgia’s comment. I tried the Rad software, and looked as though it had worked well, but still had problems when I dropped it into the timeline of Movie Maker. I got the Riverpast software from Davemazm and it worked like a charm. Very easy to download, very easy to use, and did what I wanted it to. I’m happy. reply

Feedback


Fair enough -- does that package handle the aliased sound problem? That’s a very subtle issue and no other package I tried was able to fix the audio. If it fixes that too, then it sounds like a great fix. Same price as QuickTime Pro as well. Thanks for the info -- will add it to my web page if it handles the aliasing.

This is all cool -- except costly and PC oriented. Is there any chance that y’all know of a mac fix that is perhaps free? I’ve got some students working on a school project -- they’ve created .mov files using a kodak camera and we don’t have quicktime Pro -- or the money to buy it.

Any help on the conversion into Quicktime DV or something else that can be used by iMovie would be really appreciated.

hey guys. geez these camera companies dont make it easy. I have small .mov files from an olympus that doesnt record any sound, stored on my computer that runs win98. so I want to be able to join them together and have mp3s play over the top, with the ultimate goal of playing them in a dvd player.

how far along can I possibly get? reply

Dear DAVEMAZM,
Thank you for your e-mail! I read your post regarding solution to converting .mov to .avi and was skeptical, but decided to send you an e-mail anyway. I was very pleasantly surprised when I received your reply. What a kind and generous thing you’re doing! Using the River Past tool I was able to convert my .mov files to .wmv and e-mail to my family many states away. You have no idea how much this means to me and my family. Thank you doesn’t seem adequate, but please know how much what you’re doing is appreciated! Katy reply

Ok, so I bought a Kodak camera. I had some reservations at first being that it was a “Kodak” but the price difference between it and some of the other brands was just too great. So I buy it before our vacation to try it out. Lo and behold I was pleasantly surprised. My cousin came with us and he had a Sony 7.2 megapixel cybershot that was twice the price. My kodak took pictures that were just as good and better in some instances. So I thought it was a keeper. That is until I tried to put the movies onto a DVD. I tried all the different Nero programs as well as DVD Movie Factory. I tried a few free programs that either wouldnt work or made a conversion that had noticably poor quality. I didnt want to shell out $30 for Riverpast or Quicktime Pro software. After much searching I tried Windows Media Encoder 9. You can get it from microsoft for free. It will encode quicktime .MOV files into windows media player format which can be burned by practically anything. Just thought I’d pass this on and save someone the time of trying out a million things. reply

Great, I tried with rad video, I had the problem for more than a year and for the first time had been able to convert a .mov to .avi!
I had a problem converting my .mov 15MB becoming a .avi 157MB ! So I tried again, and when ask to convert, arriving at the window video compression, seeing full frame (uncompressed) as default, I clicked the arrow, choose ideo@video5.10 and then compression quality 10. MY .avi is now 3,5 MB! I can send it, the quality is good and it opens on windows media player!

Many thanks, good luck for everybody reply

Just an update to my previous post. Since I’m always looking for the best program to do the job I thought I’d try a few other programs and see how they fared against the Microsoft Media Encoder 9. I tried using Riverpast Video Cleaner first. They have a trial version that is completely functional except that it adds a watermark to the video. It is faster than Media Encoder as it only does a single pass. The file size was much larger since it is an AVI format. Media Encoder converts to WMA which is windows media player. I converted the same movie clip using both programs and then made a DVD out of them. There are numerous programs that will do this such as Nero, Roxio and Ulead. I played the movie clip directly from the camera to a television, then played the DVD to judge if there was any perceptable loss in quality from the original.The Riverpast conversion had a very noticable loss in quality. It was very grainy and generally unpleasant to view. The conversion made using Media Encoder 9 was indistinguishable from the original. Given the fact that Media Encoder is free and Riverpast is $30 to me it’s a no brainer. Media Encoder has various bit rate outputs from High Def to standard DVD to VCD quality. Obviously the higher the quality the larger the file. It at least gives you the option to convert from the very best quality for say burning to a DVD, or something less which would be perfectly adequate for emailing and viewing on a computer. reply
