Hi, I am having a problem with Aperture.
Whenever I try to open a video (MOV files shot with the iphone) I just get a blank screen, the video does not open. If I drag it outside on the desktop I just get a very small file (like this small http://goo.gl/1yJwS ) that obviously does not work.
This happens with every video on Aperture, and I tried the following procedures:
- I repaired permissions on the Aperture database, repaired the library and rebuilt the library
- I repaired permissions and disk on DISK UTILITY
- I uninstalled Aperture with CLEAN MY MAC, a program that is supposed to completely uninstall apps and then I re downloaded it from the Mac App Store
- I opened the library with iPhoto ===> in this case I am able to view the videos, EVERYTHING WORKS OK
- I opened the library with another Mac (same OSX version and Aperture version) ==> in this case I am able to view the videos, EVERYTHING WORKS OK
- I opened the library with another user on my Mac ==> I get the same error
- I opened another library with my Mac ==> I get the same error
It would seem that the problem resides somewhere inside my Mac, not in Aperture since I reinstalled it, and not in the library since it works fine on other Macs.
I don't recall installing any strange video editing software recently, since I have looked around in some forums and some users suggest uninstalling divx codecs.
I also tried using VLC media player as the external video editor, but when I try to open the video with that it gives me this error "Editing Error - This image cannot be rendered for editing because Aperture does not support the image format."
All my files are located in the aperture library, they are not referenced files. Also I am able to see the thumbnails of my videos and when I click on the INFO panel I am able to see al the file properties, including the video size which is obviously not in the order of Kilobytes like the video it exported but several hundred megabytes.
Sorry for the long post but I figured I would already let you guys know all my troubleshooting steps so as to exclude repeating the same procedures.
