          What DV? MS DV AVI, Canopus DV, Avid DV? Are you sure, your comp resolution is correct? Does the file render correctly without the effect applied? Is the source fiel intact?

            Hi Mylenium

             

            The original file is from Sony Vegas with the Panasonic DV-AVI codec (PAL), all small files render correctly, but i have a 90 minute file that when rendered produces the corrupt file, the format is still AVI-DV codec, if i rendered the file with the .DV formatt the files works ok, just not in the formatt i need.

              Could this be a limitation in the Panasonic-Codec perhaps? Very much sounds like a Bug in there that makes it go kaputt, if it exceeds a certain length or file size. Can you capture files in Vegas to that length with teh same CoDec?

                Well the original file is 16 gig with the panasonic codec, i am just importing the full file into AFCS3 and using magic bullet letterbox to put black bars over the image to make it look like 2:35:1 widescreen, and exporting back to DV-AVI, as i have said before the small files work fine, even VLC media play can't fix the corrupt file, in sony vegas i have made bigger files using the same codec up 80gb,  from a VHS tape and that work fine too.
