During the summer before the 2011-2012 school year, we were fortunate to receive a number of Flip HD video cameras. These have allowed us to expand the breadth of the (very!) short movie project by letting students check out cameras and tripods for shooting over multiple days.
Unfortunately, we found that the .MP4 files the Flip records were causing problems during the rendering process in Adobe Premiere.
We’re using Quick Media Converter (http://www.cocoonsoftware.com/) from Cocoon Software to convert our Flip HD .MP4 videos to .WMV files, which Premiere seems to handle. to avoid the crashing problems we’ve been having in Premiere Pro.
To use the software, you need to do 3 things:
Identify the files to convert;
Select the conversion format;
Identify the location for the converted files
Here’s a short demo of using the software:
