I'm trying to use a video in .mov format. I can't open the file in any programs such as premier, aftereffects or quicktime... says I'm missing a codec. The file was exported out of final cut and is in .mov format. Is there anything I can do to open this .mov file without having final cut on my machine?

Check your codecs:

If the mov file is exported from Final Cut and contains material encoded in the Pro Res codec you need this decoder to play it back in a Windows environment.
