    If you have Quicktime Pro, try exporting the QT file into a different format- perhaps you'll have better luck importing it from there.

    I have personally also edited the whole movie together(check 2ndquest's thread for more information on that). I personally used Magix Video Deluxe for editing, which doesn't seem to have any problems with the audio in MOV files.

    You can find more info about that product here. There's a demo, but I'm not sure what kind of capabilities it has. It's a worth a shot tho'.

    Perhaps because Premiere 7 is unable to work well with MOV files. I have a bit of a past experience with Adobe Premiere, and although it is a very good video editor, I always had problems with trying to import something else than an AVI file.

    *shrugs* I suppose that Premiere just wasn't build to work with MOV.

    You'll need Quicktime Pro to export it using a different compressor.

    I did the same myself using Quicktime Pro. Export the .mov's to uncompressed .avi files, import them into Premiere and then after editing, export into your chosen format, (DVD MPEG-2 in my case)

    what setting did you do for exporting it as an avi?

    because when I did it the file grew to 1 gig

    Well, just off the top of my head.....

    Did you make sure to check the timeline? Sometimes, some tracks are disabled. You can also try importing it as another type of file, do what you have to do, and then export it as a mov.

    I had never thought of putting these together. Good idea! I'll go home and try tonight. I also have Premiere, so we'll see what's up.

    I have a Mac and in Quicktime Pro and you can just copy and paste movie segments. Maybe it's not as simple on a PC.
