    AVCHD won't play

    I have some ACVHD files that were recoded on a Panasonic GH3 and when you try and play or transcode them MC crashes. Any ideas why this might be happening?

    Re: AVCHD won't play

    In order to help, I think you have to be a litle more specific on your work flow!

    like mine: Workflow: Panasonic AF-101 set to AVCHD 1080p25 > SD card > transcode to DNxHD120 > edit sequnce > export to QT same as source > TEMPGnc Authering Works 4 & 5 burn to DVD and BD.

    (Let me surgest that we all publish our tested workflow in our system specs.)

     

    But annyway, I shoot a few hint from the hip:

    Is plugin "Windows AMA AVCHD v1.x" installed? (you may check it in control panel > programe >)

    Now start to checkt from your source: (I gues its AVCHD recorded on to a SDcard)?

    Will the clip play in the camera?

    Will the clip play in QT-, VLC-, or windows-player? (make sure that thise programes are updated)

    Try to transcode just one short clip from your card. (Some of the clip may be corupted and cause MC to crash. Skip those clip. Let us know. And we deal with them later). ( I allwayes transcode a few clip at a time, to incircle posible corupted clip generated by the camera, I know its anoying. "Trust is god but controll is better". Vladimir Ilyich Lenin.)

    Re: AVCHD won't play

    Hi Allan,

    I have V6.5.3 so I dont have AMA AVCHD installed as it is supposed to be wrapped in this version, well thats how I read the document on install, I even did a re-install in case it was corrupt.

    The clips all play fine in windows player etc. it's just avid that don't like it. I have the folder contents on my raid as the cards were wiped. The are intact as the camera has written them.

    Re: AVCHD won't play

    It appears as I should be able to import and at least transcode which I can't it must be to with avchd ama is there anyhting else I need to update or check such as qt version, graphics card driver etc.

    Thee mov files (720 50p) recorded on this camera don't play smoothly at all.

    It appers that the old avchd AMA plug in should be deindtalled before opgrating to 6.5.3

    Re: AVCHD won't play

    Not sure if they fixed it in the new version but AMA linking with AVCHD wont work with panasonic cameras which use variable length GOPS.  ( someone correct me if I remember this wrong!)

    The symptoms are - AMA links OK but as soon as you try to play a clip the whole thing crashes.

    Solution - use the import dalogue on the M2T clips.

    Re: AVCHD won't play

    You may try to remove the old AVCHD plug-in, in:

    c:\Program Files\Avid\AVX2_Plug-ins\

     Perhaps uninstall dident remove them.  Check the file date.

     

    And the usual suspect, remove settings files from the old MC-version. Just a guess. Dont giveup.
