    XAVC-S long clips won't transcode MC8.9.1

    Hi all,

    I've been given a project shot on a Sony. The clips are mp4 XAVC-S. The newest version of Media Composer (8.9.1) lets me link the clips, which is great. However, long clips always fail to transcode. The longest clip I have that transcodes successfully is about 10 minutes. Longer clips always fail.

    Has anyone else run across this? My workaround at the moment is to convert with Squeeze and link that clip but the colours don't match.

    Thanks!

    I have seen simular posts on the Avid Editors of Facebook Forum on clips over 20 minutes. I don't recall what their work around was, or if they had one yet. Not much help, but yeah...it's happening to others. 8.9.2 anyone? :)

    Trtanscoding also fails for background transcodes (see this other post http://community.avid.com/forums/p/181552/846587.aspx#846587). It's been entered as a case in the support system 03275602. I'll send an update that it's also happening on foreground transcodes.

    Thanks for that link. My searches didn't come up with that one.

    My error was the same and also during background transcoding. Can't remember if I tried in the foreground.

    Cheers,

    It's the generic MC plugin, new for linking XAVC-S in MC8.9.1

    Just to note, I've only been testing on the PC. I don't have a MAC on which to compare results.

    Re: XAVC-S long clips won't transcode MC8.9.1

    Out of curiosity, can you ama a clip in, drop that clip on the timeline so it has all its a/v tracks and data track, then remove a track at a time and see if you can transcode that sequence. Start with removing the data track. It might help show where the error is.

    when the fs7 first came out we had issues with the data track on xavc-i clips so used to ama, unlink, deselect tracks then relink, then transcode. I still do that for safety even now.

    XAVC-S doesn't have data tracks. For grins I just removed the audio tracks and started a transcode in the foreground. I'll wait to see what happens; if it works, I'll try it in the background.

    Removing the audio tracks didn't work.

    This is now bug number MCCET-2027. Hopefully it will be a quick fix (and include the other XAVC-S problems as well).
