  • Why don't nested effects aggregate?

    Hi, I've been trying and failing to learn how to use multiple nested effects. Was attempting the following: 1. Use the Paint/Clone Effect to erase an unwelcome detail from a (static) shot. 2. Use Resize to add a little digital pan. 3. Colour correct. Step 1 went fine. But when I add a nested level to install the pan, the clone effect doesn't

  • Can You Upgrade Transcode Quality During Ongoing Edit?

    Hi, I'm mid-4K edit and suddenly realised a selection of shots from a given camera were trancoded as DNXHR LB, wheras all the other footage is DNXHR HQ. Is there a way to simply upgrade those clips to HQ, thereby automatically replacing the existing lo-res shots in the edit with the correct resolution? I'd hate to have to go through the edit

  • Re: Disk seems corrupted - what now?

    Well guys I've spent several hours on this with sadly unproductive results. The 'successive approximation' process became increasingly surreal as I created sub-folder after sub-folder like a Russian doll. No matter how limited the number of files left to scan Avid always 'hangs' after 5-10 seconds. Alas the concept of waiting out

    Scott, Thanks for the advice, will give it a try. Successive Approximation - thanks for giving it a name. My terminology is poor. As you say MC doesn't 'crash' per se it just freezes/hangs about 5 seconds in. If you click on it you get 'Avid Editor is not responding'. So from what you say, one just persistently sifts files until

    Hi Scott, Thanks for the tip. Sounds practical if attritional. However the drive is 3GB and contains around 1800 MXF files! And every time it crashes Avid will have to be rebooted. How long did it take you?? NB Ran chkdsk thanks.

  • Re: Disk seems corrupted - what now?

    Thanks Scott, fair point. Disk has survived and works fine. I think we may be approaching this from different directions. You're concluding the disk has failed and is in need of recovery. In fact the disk functions just fine - I just copied a load of music onto it which plays perfectly. The issue is there's something within the Avid MediaFiles

  • Re: Disk seems corrupted - what now?

    Btw to answer your question, yes the MXF folder on the drive is accessible and presumably copyable. There's even a neat new little 'Quarantine' folder containing around 10 MXF files. The issue is every time I open Avid it tries to Scan the drive, then hangs/crashes before Avid can even get going. It's unlikely to be a cooling issue as

  • Re: Disk seems corrupted - what now?

    Scott, Thank you. I gave the drive a rest, even stuck it in the fridge to cool off. I think it's just dead. Do you or anyone know how to go back to the original rushes (archived on another drive) and reassemble the edit? I guess one needs metadata (stored where?), a way of directing Avid to the original rushes, a way of reassembling them onto a

  • Disk seems corrupted - what now?

    Hi, In ten years on this forum I've been dreading having to write this post. The disk my project is on seems to have given up the ghost. It was a 4K project with all media edited natively then mixed down to HD for export. Firstly it says ...various files are not an .MXF file. Offers the chance to Quarantine. I Quarantine all. Then it tries to scan

  • Is there any point transcoding these days?

    Hi, I'm back after several months' absence and a Bourne-style new identity (RIP joepineapples, thanks Mariana). Things seem to have changed... I've been trying to import some slo-mo HD/ realtime 4K .MXF footage off a Sony FS7. The AMA link, once juddery and unusable, now plays seamlessly. the DNXHD/DNXHR transcode on the other hand is painful
