Thanks Eddie, but those links doesn't really do it for me. VirtualDub doesn't seem to like 24 bit audio and why on earth is the audio shorter than the video according to MediaInfo?
You might try Digital Media Converter (Deskshare). They have a trail version, but full is ~US$40. If you have the XviD CODEC (often part of the DivX CODEC) installed, it's worth a shot.
As for your AV file, how was it created? Did you edit to this format, or did you receive it from someone? Not sure about the difference in Duration. Could be MediaInfo giving bad results, or a real problem with the file. The Audio info could well be truncated. I'd try running it through G-Spot and see if it will render/play the file. Also check its error messages.
I've had luck using Rising Research's Digital Video Repair. It's a freeware tool, that has saved a few truncated and damaged video files. Also worth a shot.
Thanks Bill! I got the file from the filmmaker and he wasn't able to convert it (or didn't have the time) for me. So he edited to this format i guess. G-spot seems to render it ok, look here:
...and this is how it looks in MediaInfo:
I'll check out those applications, definitely. But a weird thing is that I manage to open the file in VirtualDub without a problem but when I want to convert the audio to 48KHz and save a wav-file - that's when I get the error message. And when I save a wav-file from VB without converting it, it has the same duration as MediaInfo says, i e shorter than the video.
Well well, any tip would do right now...
What happens if you take the shorter audio and stretch it inside Premiere?
Hi David! How do you mean? I don't even know how to open the avi in Premiere, I've tested several different project settings but there is none which uses 8.000 fps. When I watch the movie in WMP the sound is ok, it's just in MediaInfo the audio has a shorter duration (and when exporting wav from VirtualDub).

Are you saying you tried the recommended utilities and they fail like VirtualDub does?

This link is about VirtualDub so no luck there:
And then I tried that STOIK app and that allowed me to convert the avi to 25 fps, but then the movie kind of got stuck on a couple of frames. Looks ok otherwise though but the audio is missing, same goes for Digital Media Converter. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I've been at it all day now so I give up.
If someone know a detailed guide of how you convert 8 fps to 23,976 fps and 44.1 KHz to 48 KHz please let me know. Thanks for all your replies!
Try using VirtualDub in the following ways:
1.) Open your original video file
2.) Go to Video / Frame Rate, choose "Convert to fps" and enter 23.976
3.) Go to Video / Compression and choose a compressor (DV perhaps?)
4.) Choose File / Save .WAV -- and create a separate .WAV file
5.) Go to Audio, and choose "No audio"
6.) Choose File / Save as .AVI -- this will now create a 23.976 fps .AVI file without sound
You can now open your .WAV file in Soundbooth or the audio editor of your choice and convert it to 48kHz, 16 bit. You can import the .AVI and .WAV into Premiere and drop them on the timeline together.
Or, after completing the above and converting your audio:
1.) Open your new "silent" 23.976 fps .AVI in VirtualDub
2.) Select Video/Direct stream copy
3.) Go to Audio / .WAV and select your new 48kHz / 16 bit .WAV file
4.) Choose File / Save as .AVI
You should now have a video that's editable in Premiere.
In exactly the same way you convert 1 pound of apples to 3 pounds. I just don't know how.
Just add water?
Thanks Dan for getting me out of the fog created by too many hours of trying to get a nice result. The end quality is in this case not super important, but I actually think it looks ok! Don't think you guys prefer using the rate stretch tool in Premiere but it actually did a nice job this time, so now my movie is 23,976 fps and has the correct duration. Thanks a lot!
