Re: Video Issue: "..could not be read ..." HELP!!

FWIW, I use video heavily with Ableton Live Suite in Windows 10 64-bit with MOV, MP4, M2T and just about every other video format/wrapper thrown at me using: https://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm
I will give that a try. Thank you very much.

Re: Video Issue: "..could not be read ..." HELP!!

I had to give up and move this particular scoring session to Performer, as there seems nothing I can do in order to get video to play in Ableton. The style of music I'm doing for this project would have been a better fit for Ableton though. I'm guessing there's a problem with 64 bit Windows 10, but ...

Re: Video Issue: "..could not be read ..." HELP!!

One additional note - I downloaded a trial of Digital Performer. Everybody single video I've tried to use in Live imports and plays flawlessly in Performer. The problem is definitely in Live. I just don't know if it's just the 64 bit version or not. Silence from my Ableton support request as well. I...

Re: Video Issue: "..could not be read ..." HELP!!

I uninstalled and then reinstalled fresh versions of the suggested codecs listed on Abletons' support page. Now, I'm no longer getting the error message, but the video appears to start importing, then Live immediately crashes. Every time. I've tried a number of additional .mov files that WILL import...

Re: Video Issue: "..could not be read ..." HELP!!

I also have Live installed on an older iMac. It's too underpowered for me to complete my project on, but as a test, I tried importing my ,mov file into a test project on the iMac. The file imports fine and plays back as expected. Therefor, the problem is definitely video import on the PC. I've conta...

Re: Video Issue: "..could not be read ..." HELP!!

Well, the docs say Live needs .mov files. I started there. I tried importing the MP4 as well - same result. That won't import either. Doesn't matter what format I try, I get the same error and it won't import into the project. ... BUT, any of those same videos will play fine in the Windows media pla...

Video Issue: "..could not be read ..." HELP!!

Running Live Suite 9 64 bit (latest version) on Win 10 64 bit. I've been sent an .mp4 video file I need to score to. I've converted the mp4 to .mov in Handbrake. The video plays back perfectally on the computer where Live is installed using the Windows Media Player, so the file must be OK and the ne...

Re: Live 9 Performance Test

1) Ableton Live CPU Meter: 8 tracks - 12% 16 tracks - 16% (added tracks by copying the original 8) 24 tracks - 22% 32 tracks - 28% Wow - I'm pretty happy with that. I'll never go over 32 tracks anyways... 2) Laptop/Desktop? Custom ADK Laptop - got it five days ago 3) Operating System: Windows 10 - 6...

ASUS ZenBook Pro UX501? Thoughts?

Just out of curiosity, is anybody running one of these with Ableton, and if so, thoughts and observations? Studio only, or playing out live with it as well? Seeing that it's almost $1000 less than a similiar Macbook pro, and fits my budget ... ( I'm NOT interested in a Mac vs PC discussion, I've got...

Stands (Yet Again) for live performances...

I've been researching a stand or stands I can use on stage for a laptop and Push. I'm currently using two Ultimate IQ-3000 double tier keyboard stands in standard "L" configuration at the moment. Consider those full.... I'm looking for something to fit in the joint of the "L" that will SECURELY hold...

Push plus Keyboard?? Suggestions?

Looking at a Push/Keyboard combo, and was wondering what everybody else was using. The Novation 61 SL mkii looks to be really nice, and if I wasn't planning on getting Push, this is what I'd probably do. But there's a lot of duplicated functionality between this and Push, so it seems like some extra...

Live Asynchronous Looping?

Is it possible to do, on the fly, asynchronous loops of random lengths? I'm still working out a rig for live performances, and though I sorta loath to use a laptop, it's looking like that's unavoidable. Hardware wise, the Boomerang III seems to cover what I want - it will let you record/payback un-s...

Re: Render a Reaktor Track to Audio

Finally figured out one way - switch to session view, route the Reaktor track to an audio track, and record over to the audio track. Works, but doesn't seem very efficient on a 20 minute track since I get to sit here for 20 minutes while it records over.

Better ideas?

Render a Reaktor Track to Audio

I've searched, but not found an exact answer yet... I have a couple to generative Reaktor ensembles that I've programmed - they don't require any MIDI input. So, I drag Reaktor into a track in Arrangement view - chain some effects I like - hit "play", and it does its thing. No keyboard or MIDI track...
