How to put .MOD and .MOI in Movie maker
Very frustrated. All I want to do is convert my MOI into WMV so I can email some family videos. I downloaded SUPER. When I drag my video into the SUPER program it gives me an error something about “bounds." I am not that technologically literate. But, I know I don’t need to put into a producer. I just want to convert MOI to WMVA. ANy help would be appreciated.
After you convert the file you will most likely be able to import your movie and play it on wmp but when you drag it into the time line of movie maker you will hear but not see it. If this is true then download the codec pack below
Ladyhawke, you said... “If anyone else has a problem, let me know and I can walk you through it."
Well, that was a very looooong time ago. Are you still in the mood to help an old man process his MOD files?
Basically guys, if any of you use .MOD and .MOI files...ur screwed...good luck cuz theres absolutely no way you can get those files into movie maker...ive tried every possibility and none of em has worked...and i have a project due 2morow...woo hoo...im fucked...if anyone has any other ideas PLZ tell me NOW...oh and ladyhawke...the “produce” button is grayed out...so thats not an option.
Just get a programme that will handle .MOD and be done with it (Premier Elements)...save yourself a lot of hassle...
I have recently purchased a Canon FS100 Camcorder which record to SD card in the MOD format. I can get them into Vista Moviemaker by changing the extention to MPEG, but when I do the video is a stretched 4:3 shape instead of a true 16:9 - It plays the same way in Windows Media Player too.
The video is the correct aspect in the supllied Pixela 3 SE software that came with the cam, but it so bad to use. Stangely you still have the change the file extention in that too.
Help greatly appreciated to get 16:9 displaying in Vista Movie maker.
Thanks in advance.
What is the use of .MOI files along with .MOD files in JVC HD vedio camera?
If I play back my camera in TV, it displays date and time. But if I copy to computer, the date and time is not displaying. Any idea, what is the issue?
How do u “rename” the video file from .MOI to .MPG.
i am using Windows Movie Maker and it wont let me getit on their becuase it says:
The file F:\SD_VIDEO\PRG001\MOV00A.MOI cannot be imported because the codec required to play the file is not installed on your computer. If you have already tried to download and install the codec, close and restart Windows Movie Maker, and then try to import the file again.
really nice thread. but i have a quetion. dose the above converter convert other video formats to.
I recently purchased a HD/SD card Canon camcorder. It saves the files as MOD files. It does not come with cyber.... (JVC software) and renaming the file ext to mpg does not work. How do i get the MOD files into movie maker?
It needs to be renamed from MOD to AVI (not mpg), still this is a far from perfect solution, as very jagged edges are visible whenever there is fast movement. The current situation with digital camcorders is a complete mess, hope they will settle on a few workable formats. I suspect codec patents and licensing fees are the root cause for that mess.
I have been using the JVC hard drive since Christmas. I’ve been doing the following successfully and burning it to DVD’s since I got the camera.
And if it makes a difference to any film-makers out there, I have a B.A. in film/video. (I do this for a living.)
Open Cyberlink Power Director.
Open and check your footage.
When you import your footage, note that you only see the .MOD, not the .MOI. That is because the MOI is the audio file and is opened with the .MOD (Its automatic.)
Make sure you can play your footage in cyberlink.
Select your footage (green outline)
Select “produce” to open your render window.
Assign your output.
Select “create a file” and click “Next”.
In the left drop down list underneath, Select Microsoft AVI.
In the right drop down, Select your quality.
Click the settings button(The Wrench)to open AVI profile settings.
Select Compression “Microsoft Video 1” and
Select Composition “Video and Audio”
Then Click O.K. and it goes back to produce window.
Double check your “export file”. This is where you want to find the AVI when it is done.
And Click Start.
Now you have a video clip that Movie maker can slice and dice.
If anyone else has a problem, let me know and I can walk you through it.
perfect specification, but the size of the video turns out to be too big (4 Gb for a 10 minute sequence), and when i tune down the qualtity in the settings, the rendering is simply not good enough... is there any other way?
I have spent hours trying to create a file from that trash MOV file that JVC HD creat... I told my friend that bought the JVC that the camera is junk and to go buy and Sony!!!! It has been some kinda hell trying to get this to work.... I did get a conversion with two products but the quality of the converted file sucks as does the audio.... JVC is crap!!!! Try to get your money back!!!!!!
follow lady hawks solution, just be aware that when you specify a destination for your new .avi files, that they are no longer in different clips, they are just under one icon. so dont delete it thinking that only the first clip was the only one that works(like i did).
id say thats the only flaw in the procedure.
I LIKE TO THINK OF MY SELF NOT AS A REALLY SMART PERSON BUT A PROBLEM SOLVER SO WHEN MY JVC MZ 330 WAS NOT PLAYIN IN WMM I THOUGT IT WAS A MINOR PROBLEM FAST FOWARD 2 MONTHS LATER STILL NOTHING.THE CAMERA IS GOOD IF U JUST WANT 2 KEEP THE FOTTAGE ON THE CAMCORDER .... BOTTOM LINE IS IF U R IN THE MARKET FOR A CAMERA... DONT BUY A JVC !!!!!!
(Ladyhawke)You my friend are a genius!
Ladyhawke thank you. I thought I was going to have to tear my hair out. Now I don’t have to. It worked perfectly. Thanks!
i was able to convert the MOD file to AVI but when I played it in windows media player all I see is a black screen. the video isn’t seen.
I am very disappointed with the EverioS GZ-MS100 which I bought as the optics and features seemed decent. I had simply assumed there would be choices of output formats or at least easy conversion to easily editable formats. The MOD is MPEG2 yes, but is not editable on all platforms.
The Cyberlink software bundled on the CD does not include anything for authoring, let alone conversion for authoring, only playback, some crap called PowerCinema. What a shit.
Folks at JVC listen: Stick to your knitting and don’t create complicated useless stuff like one key uploading to youtube or yet another movie viewer or whatever that won’t be useful months from now anyway. Instead provide the BASICS RELIABLY in whatever software you do decide to bundle. Being able to output files in multiple CURRENT formats is a lot more valuable than some shit movie or photo watching software you prolly paid millions to license.
I am taking this camera back to the store.
so here’s the latest.
Microsoft does provide a decent explanation and an encoder utility at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308464
For once I felt sympathy for Microsoft, no easy feat, and am still seething at JVC.
The Microsoft encoder works only to encode (produce) .wmv files, and it was rather slow. I really don’t have the time to convert every clip before working on it. So, it will be back to the store for the Everio, and back to my old love the Canon.
And listen up JVC: I bet some smart ass marketer convinced you that providing frills like one touch youtube uploads will sell like hot cakes. But until you take care of very basics like multiple file formats, those features aren’t worth the paper your user manual is written on.
I don’t know anything about the JVC but the above thread did include the Canon FS100. I know for a fact that my neighbor has been able to successully read/import *.mod files directly from the Canon FS100. I don’t know how they are doing it. I have scoured the Internet to try to find the right Codec and can’t find anything useful at all. At best you get 101 ways to convert the file. I don’t want to do that . . . I want to read it directly like I have seen my neighbor do numberous times. Any ideas? . . . Anyone???
