I just finished transcoding a big project from diferent camera formats (all where h264 1080 and 29.97fps) into dnxhd220.
I'm getting once in a while this message over a black frame :
I can still play but I'm concerned that as soon the project start getting more complex I could have problems...
I looked on the older posts but all I found for a solution is to re digitize or video mixdown which is not possible for me...
Any more specific ideas why this is happenning and how could I fix it and prevent future problems?
Owner . Editor . Sound Designer . Music Composer
Nobody replied...I'm moving forward with the project and is getting worst...
Please anybody have any ideas?
I have the same issue after importing an FCP project, not even seeing the vision, just a timeline with this error on source and recorn monitors which are blacked out. If I find a workaround I will post it here.
Whilst not experiencing this issue myself, the info I have read suggests that this is related to corrupt clip(s). The suggestion to work around this seems to be more of a process of elimination to establish which is the offender(s) and remove them then re-digitize.. One of my colleagues has had this issue and like you had imported an FCP 7 project.
Turned out 3 of his clips had become corrupt. Re-digitized the offenders and he was away.
I couldn't re digitize (it's a hugh project plus all has been transcoded and it would take days) but just like the way it started the issue now it went away....everything works fine...no more messages (touching wood)...so I'm not sure what the problem was but I'm glad I didn't do anything and went ahead....the problem solved itself...like if the avid could heal itself...
thanks to all...
Thanks for that. Given it was a rebuild from FCP and the start of a project I tried a second export from FCP deleted all the media from the first Avid conform and tried again, same problem.
So I deleted media again via media tool then went looking on my drives and found half a dozen stray media files from that project that the media tool did not get rid of. I manually deleted them from my drive. tried the import again and bang it worked! No error message and timeline looking as it should.
Why the media tool didn't delete those files I do not know.
Now I just have to figure out why some clips aren't synched I suspect the "cameraman" has shot a mix of NTSC and PAL. Urgh think this little project has a curse. Back to the detective work.
Thanks again, Dan
