Error importing mxf from FS-CF Pro (Canon XL-H1)

Aug 23, 2011 1:21 PM

I need some help. I recorded important video under highest setting on XLH1 camera: 60i (fps), HD (16:9) and HDV setting on Focus Enhancements hard drive and in MXF format. Recording under DV format on FS-CF pro shows no problem but the HDV format does not. I get the message "file has unsupported compression type"

 

I can play the clip form hard drive but it is a preview (no sound).

 

Can somebody please help me recover these files? Thanks

    Chances are the MXF file is using a codec that you don't have installed.

     

    Find out what that is, and install it.

    Premiere Pro doesn't support HDV in an MXF container (at least, not that I'm aware of). Installing a codec won't really work. Do you have a short sample of a clip that you could share somewhere? Even a few seconds would be enough to diagnose and figure out a workaround.

    What do you mean you can't get a clip? Don't you have them on your hard drive? I want one of the MXF files as-is; I'm pretty sure I can make it work, but I can't give you any specific instructions without trying it myself. I'm Googling for such a clip right now...

     

    If you have one that's 100MB or so, send me a PM and I'll give you an FTP upload.

    Standby... think I found something...

     

    Can you grab MediaInfo and use it to analyze a clip? Use Text view mode and then copy and paste the results here.

    Need to see audio...

     

    (Hmm... on a Mac... I'll see what I can do.)
