I'm currently cutting a film and the camera I am using is recording MXF Files to a Nano flash device. It imports Great!
I recently did a shoot where the nano flash failed and I had to record to the in-camera card. It recorded the files as MPEG-4.
As the camera was a rental I had to copy files onto my drive then return the camera.
I am having trouble coverting these files into something Avid will understand.. They wont even import into MPEG streamclip.
Do you recall the camera make and model? The specific codec used? Can you play these files using any other program?
Must think of something clever to go here...
The camera used was a Sony PMWEX3
The PMW-EX1 camcorder records 1920 x 1080 HD images using the “MPEG-2 Long GOP” codec,which conforms to the MPEG-2 MP@HL compression.
I can view the files in VLC.
MPEG Streamclip says 'Unrecognised file'
Use AMA to load the files into Media Composer or use the Sony Clip Browser to view them. If you're running MC 5.5 make sure you download the XDCAM AMA plug-ins from http://www.avid.com/US/products/Avid-Media-Access
Howard:Check your link. It doesn't go where you think it does.
The Pentagon Channel
Ok then.. So I've since grown a brain and realised what AMA is all about.. i've watched the You Tube tutorials, read the forums etc.
But my problem now is when I LINK TO AMA VOLUMES (exactly how they do it in the tutorial)I get the message Unable to clips at volumes LACIE/RUSHES
Any reason why it wont recognise the clips.
I am Running Avid MC HD Vers. 5.0.4
First off the files need to be inside of the BPAV folder located somewhere other than the root level of the disk or they need to be on the card and the card has to mount on the desktop but you need to load up the Sony drivers so that can happen.
If the files load up in the bin but the media is offline, chances are there's an illegal character (usually a : or a / ) in the file path.
Tell us what you're seeing on your end.
