    Import Error

    Media Composer 3.5 now support the of .m2t files.  I am now trying to import a collection of 720p30  .m2t files from a JVC GY-HD100.  This normally works perfectly when I import .m2t files created from a Canon XHA1 at 1080 60i.

    However with the 720p footage I start the import and it seem to work fine saying

    "Fast Importing MPEG file:__"

    Then a minute or two in an error message pops up...

    MPEGAudioImportReader::~MPEGAudioImportReader() CONSISTANCY CHECK FAILURE !?! : [0]

    Any ideas on how to solve this? Please help!

     

    Here is what the Console read...

    Re: Import Error

    I have found that m2t files exported from MC can be imported by fast import fine.

    Also captures from HDV Split can be imported by fast imported.

    Not other m2t files though.

    I am waiting the day that MC would be able to import ALL mpeg files.

    Actually I forgot to mention, they were captured using HDVsplit. Sorry.

    Re: Import Error

    Ok, I figured it out myself.  I'm posting this for anyone else that comes accross the same problems.

     

    I ran my .m2t files through this MPEG2Repair program (freeware). It did a wonderfull job repairing and logging errors.  For some, this may be all you need to do.

    http://www.videohelp.com/tools/MPEG2Repair

     

    However, when I tried to import the fixed .m2t files i recieved the ever vague "Track -1 Not Found" error.  Which I guess it basically means its corrupt(for Avid).

    So I ran the "fixed .m2t files through Canopus Procoder(Not "free") , with a target set as the same as the original file, so it basically recreates it.  (on a side note, Procoder is the best encoding software I've ever used)

    http://desktop.grassvalley.com/products/ProCoderSW/index.php

    (When you click "Add Target" Select SYSTEM then HDV TARGET. Then under the Target Parameters select your appropiate HDV Mode{720 or 1080} and Format{frame rate}. Adjust where it get sent to under "Path") 

     

    This is all a pain the ass, but HDV is a pain in the ass.

    However, these processes move pretty fast and it works.  And its MUCH faster and a higher success rate than MPEG Streamclip.

    Good luck to anyone who tries this!

    Re: Import Error

    Why you didn't capture within MC? Sometimes it has some problems but it can work after 2-3 attempts.

    I can't see how HDV is a problem. I work on that very much.

    AVCHD is a problem.

    Thanks, this helped me A LOT!!! I can't tell you how much I HATE HDV and MPEG in general.  I use P2 now and LOVE it, there's none of this craziness!

    Re: Import Error

    Is HDV and MPEG that you hate or a program that can't handle HDV and MPEG that you hate? I hate gasoline because it's too expensive or, do I hate the vehicle because it's a gas guzzler?

    Good point, but I certainly don't hate Avid.

    Re: Import Error

    Hai friend, I met the same problem. I could not get MTS files in to avid. I red your answer and tried a lot but i couldn't. finally I use tmpeg enc express 4.0 to convert my MTS files in to M2t files. Now it is working with no problems.

    Re: Import Error

    If you have m2t files causing errors while fast importing into MC, you could try to do an automatic scene detection with HDVSplit. I had a similar problem described in this thread.
