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?

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.
