That is indeed not funny, but for me the import of all kinds of videos to Aperture works well. What is the type of videos you are trying to import?
Just to make sure - you have not by any chance accidentally excluded videos from import in the import settings? That section of the import settings is missing from your screenshot.
Your pictures were showing like below, thanks for the second link. But what is the file type of your videos? mpeg, quicktime movies, AVI?
This list is not exhaustive, Aperture may support more formats than listed below, but any codec mentioned clearly should be supported.
It was .MOV from iPhone and .MP4 from Canon camera. Any ideas?
I cannot test with .MOV from iPhone, but .MOV from the iPod touch and Canon and all movies play well.
Have you installed any third party video codecs lately, like the 3ivx codec?
Can there be permissions problems with the folder you are importing from?
Aperture has been known, to not to be able to play video, if the library is in a shared folder.
I'd try to do some general Trouble Shooting Basics, repair the permissions of the Library, remove the preferences.
Trouble Shooting Basics doesn't help me. I have tried everything before I asked for help to this forum, of course.
I haven't installed any codecs for Mountain Lion. What codecs can you recommend to install?
I have Perian (http://perian.softonic.de/mac) installed and Flip 4 Mac (http://flip4mac-wmv-windows-media-components-for-quicktime.softonic.de/mac), for better video compatibility with Windows media, but I think it is unlikely that missing codecs are your problem, if you could view the videos before.
I mentioned the codecs, because some third party codecs interfere and even may cause Aperture to crash, for example:
I do have exact the same problem as you, in2om!
Not only that I can't import videos from my Canon SX230 (.mov-files), which worked fine under the very same version of Aperture (3.3.2) under Lion, but also I can't play my old video, that is already in the library.
And the same thing here with iPhoto, I can import and playback here, even the old video!
BTW, I did remove that 3ivx-codec, but it did not help!
I got the same problem
it couldn't be import any type of videos in Aperture
I use the same library file in Aperture and iPhoto, it's shared.
in iPhoto, I could import video and play it, works good.
but when I enter Aperture and use the same library which is video imported
the video shows, but the thumnail is corrupted, and video isn't playable.
i've tried clean install mountain lion
and after finished, I just install one software Aperture
at this time, Import video funtion works good.
but after I rebuilded my mac on this clean installtion
the problem's emerged.
Guys, let's write a list of applications that we have installed. Maybe so we can find an "unnecessary" application. I'll begin.
Adobe Photoshop CS6
Blackmagic Disk Speed Test
I think the problem in an "unnecessary" app. Who has the same apps?
