Quicktime MOV - preview/render issues. FIXED

I just found another reason it's a good idea to keep V5 around a while longer.

I am using a Digital Juice Background in the format of Quicktime MOV (PNG frames). This displays just perfectly within the project... but when you render... the frames all turn black.

While the preview monitor is set to Draft or Preview (any setting) you can see the frames... as soon as you put the preview into GOOD or FULL mode the frames turn black.

I loaded the same MOV file into V5... and everything works fine (all preview modes... also when rendering.

So... this looks to be a V6(b) bug.

Anyone else with ETK 6 who would like to give this a try (background for animated set 133)

Luckily... for this project I could render the MOV file using V5 into AVI (YUV) and use that instead of the native MOV file.

I generally prefer using the native Digital Juice files within Vegas rather than rendering them out using their juicer product (which is a little ODD shall we say).

UPDATE FOund the issue was actually related to the version of QUicktime I had installed. Updated from QT6.1 to 6.5 and the problem was resolved. Still rather strange that Vegas 5 was rendering these files just fine (even with the older QT).
