    Importing 1080 60P files

    Hi:

    I am using MC 5.03 and have a video camera that can create AVCHD 60P files.  Is there an import file update or patch available that will allow me to bring these into Composer?

    Thanks for your help

    Chuck

    Re: Importing 1080 60P files

    Chuck,

    I don't think that those files can be imported without first transcoding them.  There is a product from aunsoft at aunsoft.com.  I believe it is called MTS converter that will transcode the files for ingestion into MC.  You can download a trial version I believe to test it out.

    Re: Importing 1080 60P files

    I think you can't import AVCHD 1080 60P in MC. Only 60i... 720 60p is the only 60p format available.

    What happen if you open the clip in Sorenson? Can you open it there?

    Re: Importing 1080 60P files

    Thanks for the quick replies.  I screwed up the question though it was a Panasonic native 1080/60P file not AVCHD.  I will try the MTS converter from auntsoft - Thanx again

    Re: Importing 1080 60P files

    I've been importing 60 p files as 60i. Since a true progressive format contains full raster, identical fields, I experience no interlacing effects or loss of vertical resolution by doing this.

    Re: Importing 1080 60P files

    I have tried importing the 60P files directly to MC but get a message "This type of mpeg file is not supported".  I tried experimenting with the Auntsoft conversions by converting the 60P file to: H-264 HD Video (mp4),  Xvid AVI (xvid)(avi), Mpeg-2 (mpg), AVI HD Video, WMV HD (wmv) with no success in the import.

    The one successful import I had was when I saved it to MOV (acv)(mov) but it was only available as 720 x 1280 and after I ripped the file and re-exported it from MC it played choppy.

    To further clarify the Camera I am using is a consumer grade Panasonic HDC-TM900P.  It's best file capability is 1080/60 P at 28000 mpbs. The rest of the formats are all at 60i in AVCHD format (only at lower Mbps ratings 17000, 12000, 5000, all of which I can bring into MC with no problem.

    Thanks for you imput

    How do you this exactly? I got footage shot on a Panasonic HCD-TM700 at 1080/60p, ama tells me "unable to link clips" (other types from same camera, like 1080/60i, link fine), and import tells me "This type of MPEG file is not supported".

    Re: Importing 1080 60P files

    Have you tried to convert your 1080 60P files using Sorenson Squeeze.

    Maybe you can convert them using Quicktime H.264 or by making a cusom Quicktime DNxHD 145 preset.

    Re: Importing 1080 60P files

    yeah I was afraid that was the only way... QuickTime DNxHD turns a 130MB clip to a 2.2GB one, H264 works but import time is very long. with 22 hours of that stuff, I'm up for a lot of coffee!

    merci Sylvain!

    If your final output is for Blu-ray and broadcast, you can go with DNxHD 145 (or try XDCAM HD 50).

    If the output is DVD and the web, DNxHD 45 is acceptable.

    Ça fait plaisir!
