I have a volume license for Premier Pro CS6 whereby I can run it on Mac OS and Windows.

When I run it on Windows, I get this:

enter image description here

But on MacOS it is fine.

The video is HDV 1440x1080i MPEG4 QuickTime.

Do you know why this happens?

    I'd examine your codecs. There are utilities that will tell you what codec is actually being used. Does this happen if you play a 1440x1080 QT video outside of Premiere?

    FWIW, that green/pink combination is often an indication of Y'CbCr data being interpreted as RGB. Mar 10, 2015 at 4:45
