    Cineform coded file import into MC 5.5.2

    I have used Cineform Neo (Trial) to capture HDV 720P50, and subsequently used it to convert the .m2t string into Quicktime files. They are 10-bit coded. When I import them into MC using AMA, color-values are all about half of the original values. When I import them, they look like interlaced video with every second frame black.

    Can someone help me, how to import Cineform 10-bit coded files?

    Are HDV 720P files 10bit?

    Why create 10bit source files from 8bit sources?

    The Cineform codecs got some really interesting features are you intending to use them while AMA'd?

    Re: Cineform coded file import into MC 5.5.2

    The original files are 720P50 MPEG 2 long GOP files created by JVC GY-HD200 on tape. As I have (again) problems with MC's capture solution (see my other thread on re-occorring capture bug), I tried to capture with Cineform HDLink. Capturing worked flawlessly. Then I used HDLink to convert the m2t file into Quicktime Cineform files, which also worked fine. My problem came with import the Cineform files into MC. As described, they showed up in a interlaced-like form.

    However, I found in another thread, that this may be an issue with the setting of the Cineform codec. In that thread a solution was described: Open First Light (another Cineform app), import one of the clips and set the 3D-display to "left" (it was set to line "line interleaved"). This solved the problem with the incorrect display when importing into Media Composer.

    So, my problem with Cineform coded files is solved. Not solved is the MC bug when capturing 720P50 files, wheere audio losses sync. at scene changes and produces white noise audio with full scale level (it sounds like defective word clock of the audio signal).
