I have a set of .MXF files that need transcoding to Apple Prores 422 because Premier crashes everytime I try to open it with these MXF files.
Im trying to use AME CS6 for this - The source clips are all in different lengths, all over 30 seconds but no more than 4 minutes a file. However for some reason Adobe Media Encoder will only give me the first 30 seconds of the file, and never displays any longer than this, so I lose whatever footage is after 00:30. Even when i try to export them as same as the source file, they all export to 00:30.
Does anyone know whats causing this?
I hope someone can help me. Many thanks!
Sounds like you used a non-standard workflow to ingest these .MXF files. If one uses the proper workflow, CS6 has no problems with .MXF clips.
Proper workflow is:
Transcoding to ProRes or whatever is not necessary, time consuming, takes up lots of disk space and gives a generation loss.
