    Importing REELS from Liquid into MC 5.5

    Hi All,

    Sincere apologies if this topic has been going around and around, but I cannot seem to find a direct answer to something that should be relatively straightforward.

    I used to use Pinnacle Liquid 6.1, and I have an unfinished project that I'd like to bring into MC.5.5 to finish.

    I AM a Media Composer noob. In Liquid, however, I am crash-HOT, but due to the problems of MC and Liquid co-existing on the same machine, I have uninstalled Liquid.

    The project was imported into Liquid from a HDV camera, and is in 1080p/25. In my Liquid REELS folder, the reels exist by their name and a large .M2V file (11GB) and 2 .WAV files of about 350MB each (presumably left and right channels). There are some other files in addition, which may, for all I know, contain data regarding scene changes etc..

    What is the best way for me to load this files into MC 5.5 for editing, syncing audio, detecting scene changes, etc..?

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Importing REELS from Liquid into MC 5.5

    Hi Ian, the audio files should direct import into Media Composer, the M2V file is easiest converted using Sorenson Squeeze, converted to an Avid DNxHd codec that will fast import or ama link into Media Composer.

    Once all these 3 files are brought into Media Composer add a mark in at the start of all and autosync using that mark to get one single clip to work with .

    Re: Importing REELS from Liquid into MC 5.5

    Thanks Tomas.

    But now that creates an additional problem...

    My original Liquid M2V files play fine in VLC Media Player. 

    However, the moment I import them into Sorenson Squeeze 5 for conversion, they flip upside down and some info/display text appears in the bottom left corner that gets converted and added to the resultant output Avid file! WTF??!!!

    I'm outputting a .MOV file in HDxDN 120 format (1080p25).

    VLC plays the new file upside down with the text!

    Any ideas anyone?!!?!

    Re: Importing REELS from Liquid into MC 5.5

    I have seen that a couple of times in the past, this is usually caused my foreign codecs, Nero was one of the apps that caused mpeg 2 codec problems , there might also be other apps that causes this.

    Also installed games can cause this problem .

    One source of this problem can be FFDShow.

    Check to see if you have that installed.

    Re: Importing REELS from Liquid into MC 5.5

    Maybe I should add that FFDshow is normally installed in the background by other applications.
    So you do not have to have actually installed it on purpose.

    Take a look at your "Programme/ Uninstall" list from your Control Panel

    Re: Importing REELS from Liquid into MC 5.5

    Douglas! You Genius!

    Sure enough, I have FFDShow popping up in my system tray, and for some obscure reason, flip and OSD were checked! How bizarre! A quick unchecking and now Sorenson is behaving itself! Thanks!!

    While you're on...

    Can you recommend the best settings for me to take these HDV M2V files into MC 5.5?

    Best regards,

     

    Ian

    I think that Tomas is the man for that, Ian.
    I pulled down the blinds on Liquid many many moons ago and, with my short memory span, have forgotten anything I ever knew about it.
