Problems opening and editing Olympus OM-D E-M1 files

Hi,
I have a new Olympus OM-D E-M1 camera. It produces (pretty great) video's of the .MOV format, H.264.
However, I am not able to open, view and edit these files in Premiere Pro CS5.
Some more information:
- Video format .MOV, H.264, 1080p 29.97fps
- Windows 7 machine, 6Gb ram, reasonably fast video card and quad core chip. Editing of other video formats with the same HD specs is no problem (e.g. mp4 or avi)
- Video's play just fine in Quick Time and in the proprietary Olympus Viewer 3 software and in Windows Media player
- Video's will import and I can put them on the timeline but very slowly.
- They usually do not open in the Source monitor, or show just 1 frame
- The sound sometimes plays fragments (as if it is reading the files very slowly)
- It does not play a preview
- I can export a sequence that I put on the timeline, for example to an MP4 which is then fine, but rendering and exporting takes forever, up to hours for 4 mins of film
I am thinking that Premiere Pro somehow does not know where to find the right codecs for importing these videos, because they must be on my computer somewhere with QuickTime and Olympus Viewer. Anyone know how to tell PP how to find/use these?
Please let me know if you need any more information to help me solve this problem.
Thanks, Bastienne

I made a screen dump of the folder in Olympus Viewer that is named Movie.
It has some files which seem to be involved in codec. Please take a look if there is anything useful there .
btw there is only one folder in Movie (AsFilter) and there is also only one folder in AsFilter (MP4), so there is no folder called MOV or similar, strangely enough.
There may be one other interesting .dll file called CodecHelper.dll in the Olympus Viewer 3 root.

  • I opened and edited a pic from my Olympus camera onto my mac (not in iPhoto).  I zoomed in

    I opened and edited a pic from my Olympus camera onto my mac (not in iPhoto).  I zoomed in and rotated the pictures and when I tried to click out of them, I got a message that the file was locked because I hadn't used it recently and "If you want to make changes to this document, click Unlock. To keep the file unchanged and work with a copy, click Duplicate."  I clicked "unlock" and then another message came up with the options of OK, Cancel, or Revert.  If I hit OK, I couldn't go back to my original picture.  I clicked OK. 
    Then later I tried to open the picture in iPhoto and it doesn't recognize it, even though it is still a JPEG file.  It still shows on my camera, but shows as a bland square in iPhoto.  Have I lost the ability to open it in iPhoto?  Will I be able to go to a store and print it out from my camera?

    What software did you use and exactly what did you do and what exactly was the  error message? There is a good chance that you will need help for the support for the program you used. Where was the photos you were editing not using iPHoto?

    What version of iPhoto  Had you imported the photo into iPhoto - iPhoto is not a photo viewer and can not open photos that have not been imported

  • When will we be able to open and edit PDF documents in Indesign?

    Hi
    It would be nice if Indesign could open PDF files.
    When will this happen (without a plugin)?
    Today I need to open the files in Illustrator. The customer prefers to use Indesign, so even though Indesign can export pdf documents I will have to tell the customer and the program can not open pdf files. This I find really weird.
    Hopefully opening and editing pdf files in Indesign will happen real soon.
    Have a great day!

    Paal, I'm sorry for that little out-lash. There is nothing wrong with inquiring the feasability of a new feature. The problem is that PDF has been an "output intended format" from the very beginning.
    An Illustrator file (from a fairly modern version) also is a PDF file, for all intents and purposes. You can rename an .AI file to .PDF and use it anywhere, with any software that supports PDF (so that's excepting Apple's Preview, probably ;-) ). Moreover, you can still open and edit this PDF with Illustrator and get all of your objects, symbols, layers, paragraph styles, and guides back!
    That's because in fact this file *contains* all this extra information in a data block marked "For Private Use Only". Other software, if adhering to Adobe's PDF specs, will simply ignore this (and thus my little jab at Apple's Preview). Does that mean you can edit such a PDF with *any* software? No -- the Illustrator data is "proprietary", and the details are not published to use by other software developers. Similarly, one could envisage InDesign to do the same. Yes, it would lead to *huge* files -- but hey, you would be able to open THAT file into InDesign and edit it. But not with any other software!
    The meta-problem is that an extremely large amount of this private data would be *extremely* dependant on the software that was used to create it with. What would an Illustrator file do with InDesign's GREP styles? What would InDesign do with Illlustrator's brush styles, or symbols? Illustrator allows slanted guides, InDesign does not.
    And let's not focus purely on a combo of ID and Illy; Photoshop *also* outputs PDFs, and its graphic data has yet another set of requirements.
    So all of Adobe's software would need to be able to parse *every others' data* to some degree. Well, it's still not "unconceivable" as all of this would need to be done in one office (note that in that single office there are still vast differences in something as straightforward as a User Interface across the CS suite). But there are lots of other software developers out there, and they *all* want to write out PDFs, all with their own internal data! (Think of the different requirements between an architectural app and one for graph plotting.)
    A *possible* solution would be to add "more" metadata to a PDF without crossing into the realm of "every single bit". Article tagging is an example of this -- it tells software that wants to know in which order *plain text* is to appear, and as such it serves as meta-data for plain text content. But the mind reels thinking of what more to add -- a list of used GREP styles per paragraph would probably be useless to anyone else.
    But such an idea will not solve the problem, as 1. this meta-data is optional (lazy programmers would be allowed to say "nothing to see here, move along"), and 2. this data would only get added to *newly created* files, and it would not retroactively make older PDFs editable ...
    (Now that's just the *short* version :-) h

  • Open and edit animated .gif while preserving frame timing

    CS4 Premium Design Edition, Win XP
    I was disappointed with the removal of Image Ready from CS3 because although some of the functionality was placed into Photoshop 10, there was no way to open and edit an existing animated .gif while preserving the timing of each individual frame. I was told on the PS forum at the time that I really needed to use Fireworks. I resented that, because I was very happy with Image Ready and I didn't want to have to learn a new application just to gain functionality that had been included in previous versions of PS/IM.
    I've now got CS4 Premium Design Edition which of course includs Fireworks... and here's what Help has to say on the subject of imported .gifs.
    "Note: When you import an animated GIF, the state delay setting defaults to 0.07 seconds. If necessary, use the States panel to restore the original timing."
    This is no use to me. What if I don't know the individual frame timings? What if there are 200 frames with varying timings?
    Simple question: which current Adobe product is capable of importing a .gif while retaining the frame timings? If anyone knows, or if I've misunderstood the nature of the Fireworks Help quote above, I'd really appreciate some input here. Thanks :)
    Not so simple question: why was an excellent gif-editing application thrown out to have its functionality partially replaced by a bunch of scripts and half-effective workarounds cooked up by desperate users ("import a gif by using the video import and typing *.* into the filename box..")? It's a fair question I think.
    Mark

    Hi Bob, that's not glib at all, it's a reasonable question.
    I uninstalled it along with everything else when I installed CS3, in the reasonable expectation that whatever replaced IR would be at least equal in functionality.
    Perhaps I should just dig out CS2 and install IM from there, but I have some serious reservations about doing so, because I don't know if/how a partial install of CS2 will impact upon my installation of CS4, and I'm not confident of getting support.
    I am also curious to know if/why Adobe actually removed basic functionality without replicating or replacing it in their other software. I really want to know: which recent, currently supported Adobe product
    should I be using in order to regain this functionality? Or do Adobe no longer produce a geniuinely comprehensive .gif-editing application?

  • How to open and edit CRP files?

    Hi,
    at my workplace I see the following folders:

    In this folder I see secret files like: 20090115.CRP and 20090115-web.CRP
    Each days ZenWorks create this 2 files.
    How can I open and edit it? Which software have to install at home for check it? I'm interested in very much what contain this files...
    Thanks,

    Those files would be software usage metering files. There is no software to the best of my knowledge that opens those files. They are loaded automatically by the collection server into the database.

  • Does iWork for iOS allow me to open and edit documents created in the Microsoft Office suite?

    Hi all,
    I have just purchased an iPad 2 32Gb. I want to be able to use it for work.
    I need to be able open and edit documents created in Microsoft Office. Primarily .doc and .docx files. Is this possible? or am I better with D2 or Documents to Go.
    Also, can I save a document attachment from an email and open it on my iPad for reviewing and editing?

    Yes, "pages.app" will open these files. In the same manner "numbers.app" will open xls,xlsx and "keynote.app" will open powerpoint files.
    iwork09 files from a Mac can also be opened. And you can save each files back in various file formats, also save them  as pdf.
    Also, can I save a document attachment from an email and open it on my iPad for reviewing and editing?
    Yes. "open in .." then a suitable app is in the list : say you get a docx, then pages will be presented as app to open it.
    Cheers

  • How open and edit the coherence.xml file?

    How can I open and edit the coherence.xml file?
    I cannot find the coherence.xml file in the coherence.jar package.
    Thank you,
    June

    If you are intent on changing the coherence.xml file, then you could use the JAR command (that comes with Java) to extract the coherence.xml file from coherence.jar and the later repackage the coherence.jar file using the udpated coherence.xml file, e.g.:
    C:\java\opt\coherence-331\lib>jar -xvf coherence.jar tangosol-coherence.xmlextracted: tangosol-coherence.xml>
    Instead of using JAR, on Windows you can associate the .JAR, .WAR and .EAR extensions with WinZip and use it to access / modify the contents of JAR files.
    However, the suggested approach is as follows, and does not include any changes to the tangosol.jar file:
    The tangosol-coherence-override-dev.xml file can be found in the coherence.jar file. After editing this file (in this case to define a unique value for the port system-property value for the multicast listener), save the file and add it to the server's classpath. When the server is executed, the values in the tangosol-coherence-override-dev.xml file will override any corresponding settings in the tangosol-coherence.xml file.Peace,

  • Is there a way to open and edit my iMovie HD files with iMovie '09 and later versions?

    I am getting ready to update an older iMac from Tiger to Mountain Lion. (Long overdue, I know) I have several files that I created using iMovie HD. After I update, will the new versions of iMovie be able to open and edit my iMovie HD files?

    I don't think that iMovie 11 is backwards compatible with iMovie HD 6.
    If you still have the install disks for iMovie Hd 6 (iLife 6) you can keep it alongside the newer version:
    Happily this is easily achieved, but it has to be done backwards.
    Delete iMovie 11 (just drag it to the trash). Now install iMovie 6 from the iLife 6 install disks. Update it to iMovie 6.0.3.
    Now re-install iMovie 11. This automatically moves iMovie 6 into a folder it creates in your Applications folder called iMovie Previous Version.
    Then reinstall iMovie 11.
    iMovie 6 works great with iDVD 7.
    Now you have them both, and you can have both in the Dock as well.
    Alternatively you could try this method, suggested by poster Uitech:
    Open a terminal and type "touch /Library/Preferences/com.apple.iLife011.plist"
    (No quotes)
    Install iMovieHD6 from the iLife 6 install disk.
    This works with both Leopard and Snow Leopard Macs.

  • Opening and editing a PDF in INDESIGN

    I am trying to edit a newsletter that was created by someone else using INDESIGN.  It is now a PDF.  I downloaded the free 30-day trial version of INDESIGN and cannot even open the PDF using said software.  Can someone please offer any suggestions or ideas on how I can open and edit this PDF?  Thanks.

    No can do...
    ID will Place a pdf, not edit it.
    There is a plug in, PDF2ID, might be cost justifiable if you are going to do this occasionally (Really bad idea, really bad)
    There is a widely known program which will open the pdf, widely frowned upon, strongly discouraged by all who represent Adobe...it is one of their flagship programs.
    Save the pdf as a Word file, Place the Word file, rebuild that file from scratch, tedious. ..

  • Can i open and edit nikon d810 raw files in lightroom 4.4

    can i open and edit nikon d810 raw files in lightroom 4.4

    No. Lightroom 4.x will never be able to open Raw files from the D810.
    D810 support has only just been added to the RC version of Camera Raw 8.6. It is never retrospectively added into older versions.
    Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw 8.6 RC for CC and CC 2014 Release Candidate | digital camera raw file support - Adobe Labs
    Adobe will probably add D810 support to the next version of Lightroom.
    Either way you'll have to upgrade to Lightroom 5 to be able to open D810 Raw files in Lightroom.
