Hi all you blenders,
I have some short sequences which I did some
years ago using 3ds max. I have them all as
AVI files encoded with cinepak. Now I’d like to
import them in the blender sequencer but it says
that it is not a valid movie format.
So, my first question is which video formats are
supported by blender? I thought it can handle all
formats for which a codex is available. Interestingly
my mplayer (linux) can play the videos.
I also tried to recode the files using mencoder and
transcode but it still doesn’t work. I tried to transcode
the video to single frames but they are all green with
some colorful noise at the top of each frame.
Hence, my second question is how I can convert them
to a format which is supported by blender. I should mention
that I use the blender-cvs version.
