you need a converter. im pretty sure quicktime pro converts avi to mov, but it costs money to purchase it. you could also check out download.com and try some free programs like this http://www.download.com/4U-AVI-MPEG-Converter/3000-2194_4-10534969.html?tag=lst-0-2

blah its a waste. theres a d/l on the net that has all the codecs in one d/l. iw works great. if your just trying to play .mov..just d/l quicktime. the free version should work fine for yeah. :)
yeah but he's not trying to play clips..he's trying to convert formats

Premiere doesn't need .mov, infact you have to have Quicktime Pro in order to have the right codec to even put them in Preimere. .AVI is fine in Premiere.

You must be doing something wrong if it won't allow you to use avi clips in there.

What exactly are you doing and how are you doing it?
