    PLEASE GOD or Somebody need help TODAY!!

    I have already posted this a while back without getting a solution to this issue; I have tired from searching online hearing the same thing over and over.  I seriously considering switching editing application cause I tested this in another without experiencing the issue I am having here.

    ERROR MESSAGE:

    SWDC_Codecinterface_Task::Execite()  CONSISTENCY CHECK FAILURE !?:[<idNum>]

    I am editing footage shot in AVCHD format from Panasonic HMC-150, this footage was imported under the settings using the panasonic codec AVC intra 100 MXF.  It is 1080 60 frames.  My project type in AMC 5 is 1080p/29.97. My hard drive is external where I store and edit from on my computer.  I am using a docking station for internal hard drives; it has two slots with 1TB in each one.  My second slot is used for time machine and the first is used for my projects.  The docking station is a BlacX duet for eSATA + USB 2.0 connection. 

    I am editing on an iMac i7 quad core with 8 g of memory and 1TB hard drive space inside.  PLEASE could someone help me resolve this or point me in the right directions where I can get answers.  I just purchased this software and computer and should not be going thru this.  Before you ask, yes my computer is updated as well with the most recent version 10.6.7 OX SNOW LEAPOARD. THANKS

    Also, I forgot to add that I am seeing a lot of it when I am editing in multi cam mode; I have not compared how much it does it if I am just using a single clip but it does the same when not grouped.

    AVC is a processor intensive codec. Your computer may just not be able to handle the workload, especially during multicam.

    Snow Leopard 10.6.7 isn't qualified yet with MC

    Not necessarily causing your problems but support will tell you to go down to 10.6.6 before doing anything.

    The error you're getting is related to your storage, either drive speed or data transfer I believe.  How are you connecting that external?  Does the iMac have an eSATA port?  If not, then that means you're connecting via USB and that is too slow to use for this material.  

    The only way to really test this is to put the media on your internal and see if you get the same errors.

    that was my last thought about this whole ordeal; I was hoping that it was not too slow; I have not tried it yet but I will copy my files over to see if this is causing the issue.  Yeah, it is connected using USB port.  I appreciate the information given; wish me luck.  Thanks.

    Yeah, USB is just not going to cut it.  It's nearly too slow for DV25 so you can imagine the performance you'd get with HD

    Another thing you could try is to Batch Import your footage in a DNx codec rather than the AVC Intra codec.

    Basically, you've clogged up the works: AVC-Intra is a very processor intensive codec, try using DNx instead. And use an internal or a firewire drive rather than USB.

    Must think of something clever to go here...

    So I should either go look for an adaptor from HDMI into firewire 800 going into my computer or change my whole storage all together?  Damn!

    HDMI to FW800??  Huh?

    The iMac doesn't have an HDMI port.  How would you do that?
