gawd help me...it appears adobe would like to make my life miserable.  CS3 media encoder could import quicktime MOV files but for some reason CS4 can NOT!  I have installed the latest quicktime 7.6 -that doesn't seem to make a different.  I can open the media files in the quicktime player and in Premiere.  
I need to be able to convert to FLV including the alpha channel as we do greenscreen productions.

Hi infochip,

First: HAH!  Adobe strikes again.

Second:  What exactly does CS4 Media Encoder do when you try to import?

It looks like you have to install the latest Quicktime and then reboot. Adobe does boast it supports MOV files as you can see by the link below.
I can now convert MOV files.  I wish the error message was more descriptive.
