A couple of questions:
Did you copy over the entire folder structure from you SD card?
Did you allow each file to Conform and Index, before you dragged them to the Timeline?
This ARTICLE goes into more detail, regarding Conforming.
Hi. thanks for the speedy response, Hunt! I imported the images through Organizer and set it to auto-delete, so would I be right to presume it took off everything it needed? Hmm. I didn't know anything about conforming and indexing! On the link you provided, you mention:
The progress bar tells you how much Conforming has been done per file, and gives an indicataion of how much Conforming is left to do. It is a good practice to not touch the computer, while Conforming is on-going, as this can cause the process to stop (usually leading to truncated Audio), the program to crash/hang, or even the computer to crash/hang.
Where, exactly, is this bar? I usually import a whole folder (i.e. whole SD card) in one go, and start dragging the clips I need onto the timeline immediately. Is this a bad thing? Should I have imported in smaller batches and been waiting for them to conform? If this is the case, should I start a new project from scratch (which I could easily do) or just delete files and re-import?
Ah, OK. I see the progress bar I think you're talking about. It 'conforms' pretty rapidly, but I only see the bar going up to about 91%. then it disappears. Would that suggest it isn't fully conforming? Anyway, the broken files are still broken!
Problem solved (I think). I dragged and dropped from Organizer and saw the conform progress bar, which I hadn't seen before. Also indexed clips. Anyway, something obviously worked. Thanks for your help
You are most welcome, and glad that you got things working. Many users never even see that progress bar, and scant little mention is ever made, of Confirming and Indexing, beyond this forum.
Good luck and happy editing,
