    Problem with m2ts files in PPCS4

    MikeN09

      In PPCS4.1.0 I am having a problem where .m2ts files being imported and then viewed are staggering during playback, no matter what quality setting. I have downloaded the K-Lite Codec Pack and installed but had two error messages come up (attached). When I use the Sony utility "PMB" and convert the file to MPEG2 they view fine in PPCS4 on the first import screen but when I drag it to the bottom and view it staggers in the upper right screen. Sounds like a Codec or file conversion issue. Importing directly from the laptop hard drive not from the camcorder. WinXP, SP3, Intel 2.19 GHz, 3Gb Ram...performance not an issue on this laptop at all. All m2ts files play excellent quality in Sony's player "PMB" installed.

       

      Any recommendations from you experts out there?

       

      I am using a new Sony HDR-XR500V. Recording in AVC HD 16M (FH). The HD properties for the .m2ts clips are as follows:

          Chances are you need to reformat your disk, reinstall the OS and programs. Good luck. Everybody who installs these kind of codec packs is inviting disaster to strike and it looks like you got hit. Consider yourself lucky that you can still repair it by a complete reinstall of everything.

           

          Why did you made this (extremely dumb) move?

           

          RULE 1. Never, never install codec packs.

           

          RULE 2. Reformat and reinstall OS & programs if you broke rule 1.

            Harm,

             

            Adobe's technical support in Indian told me to install the Codec pack. Huge mistake I'm sure. Anyway, the laptop is running OK but the issue still has not been resolved in PPCS4 with the staggering of video media. I may end up buying a new laptop. OK...suggestions on what I should make sure is on the new operating system? Thanks.

              Mike,

               

              Some folk have had good luck with the K-Lite pack, but far too many have had major issues. There are probably some good things in there, like G-Spot (available free outside of K-Lite), but with most of the installations of it, other CODEC's ger hurt in the process. Also, there is a bunch of useless stuff that gets installed, and this just gets in the way. FFDShow seems to give many people issues (though some swear by it).

               

              My policy is to only install the exact CODEC's that I need for particular media, or for a particular Export. I always attempt to go to the "source" for these, and seldom bother with any "free" versions. I'd rather pay $ and get the best that I can. Now, some of mine, like Lagarith, are free, but if I have to choose between a free version of one and say MainConcept, guess who gets my money.

               

              Now, enough about CODEC's. My guess would be that you have the CODEC's needed to both play and to edit the files. There is a big difference between these two operations. With most media, PrPro has to get the media into an editable state. This can be done via conversion by the user before Import, or internally by PrPro. On all but a robust system, the former is usually the better, but the results can vary by the conversion program. I would have assumed that the Sony converter would be pretty good at handling this format/CODEC, but maybe not. I just do not know it.

               

              Since you are using HD material, you system will be strained. If there is internal decoding necessary, the CPU will come under a pretty heavy load. This can carry over to playback issues in PrPro too. However, with most media, playback is more heavily dependent on the I/O sub-system, i.e. your HDD's. Unless there is a video driver issue, less so on your GPU.

               

              First thing that I would do is make sure that your video drivers are as up to date, as is possible. I'd go the source - the vid-card mfgr's Web site.

               

              Next, please tell us more about your HDD's. If you only have a single physical HDD (partitions are a no-no), then if the vid-card's driver is functioning properly, your playback is most likely due to the bottleneck of the single HDD. This can affect all aspects of editing work, though is usually seen first in playback issues.

               

              More system info would be very helpful. I'm sure that Harm, or others, will likely spot some potential issues there.

               

              Good luck,

              PS I only have had the Coppola, and am not familiar with the other two wines, but will look. I've had the Yellow Tail Chard, and was not impressed by it, but then I grade Chards on a difficult scale. Few live up to it.

                One additional thought for you to check. You get good playback in the Source Monitor, but not in the Program Monitor, right? What are the settings on the Program Monitor? Hint: Rt-click on it and look for Quality, Display Mode and Magnification.

                 

                Good luck,

                  I've tried all that .... setting it on Draft, High Quality, and Automatic.

                  Same results. Both the Source and Program monitors stagger severely with the

                  .m2ts files. Source plays OK with the MPEG2 but the Program Monitor

                  staggers. MPEG2 export quality from Sony's PMB utility (720x480) is a far

                  cry from the original .m2ts (1920x1080). Perhaps I should call Sony but I

                  keep thinking that Adobe should get this as they say PPCS4 supports .m2ts.

                   

                  Your thoughts?

                  Thanks,

                    Thanks for the info on the wines. The std Yellow Tails are not that good.

                    Have you tried the Reserve series. For a table wine around $11 it almost has

                    the quality of Coppolas.

                      Both the Source and Program monitors stagger severely with the .m2ts files.

                       

                      Oops, I mis-read then. I thought Source was fine, but not Program Monitor.

                       

                      If both show issues, then the I/O would be my next thought.

                       

                      As for the conversion to SD from the original HD, I would have thought that PrPro could handle your HD MPEG files. Now, it will take some power and both from the CPU and the I/O, but I am surprised that PrPro cannot work directly with your files. Remember that with any HD material, you have a of pixels to push around.

                       

                      Since you have issues with the converted/down-sampled material, I'd check to see if the Sony converter can output as DV-AVI Type II files. Obviously, this will be downsampled too, from your HD material. If it can, try those in PrPro to see if playback is better. That is the native format that PrPro works in. If it will not play those smoothly, there is very likely an equipment issue going on.

                       

                      I have to admit that I do SD work only at the time. I am not THAT familiar with the various HD formats and CODEC's, so I'm not the best person to address that.

                       

                      Good luck,

                          To my knowledge I have not. I encountered this brand at an early trade-tasting, and would assume that it was just their regular offering at the time. Now, I know that they offer more varietals (Chard was the first to the US, IIRC), and obviously a couple of "levels." Will give it a try.

                            Mike,

                             

                            Why did you install that codec package, when PR comes out of the box with the proper support for AVCHD formats, including your camera? It should work by just importing the files into the proper sequence. Things may have been fouled up by these codecs. In that case it is back to square one.

                              I see that as a strong possibility too. I'd first uninstall K-Lite and chose "All Components," or similar syntax. Then, for good measure, I'd do a Repair Install of PrPro. That could reinstall any MainConcept CODEC's that have been broken. With both the Sony software and PrPro, one should have all necessary CODEC's. Now, I wonder if the Sony stuff fritzed up the MainConcept CODEC's though Adobe hides those pretty well with their proprietary naming convention.

                               

                              Should it not, then Harm's earlier advice to do a wipe and total install of the OS and PrPro might be needed. I'm a lazy sot, so I hold those operations out until the end, but that's just me.

                               

                              I'd still be interested in the I/O, but now that Harm tells me that the material is AVCHD, the CPU will come into play heavily also.

                               

                              Good luck,

                              PS wonder if FFDShow is getting in the way from the K-Lite pack. It has cause many others grief.

                                I guess the big question is - can PPCS4 handle these imports of d2ts files

                                and run them normally in both viewers? As 1920x1080? Adobe claims so.

                                Thanks,

                                  OK... turns out my laptop doesn't have the horsepower to run m2ts files in PPCS4. After spending a lot of time talking to all kinds of speciality houses ended up with Dell's Alienware team that put me in a machine that should do the trick. You need massive amounts of processing, video, and RAM to edit native in m2ts with PPCS4. Here's the config below. Will confirm after I recieve it that it does what they say it will.

                                    Mike,

                                     

                                    For the AVCHD files, a Quad-core processor would be a great advantage, due to the processing load required. If you can bump up to a Quad-core, you will be spending your money wisely.

                                     

                                    Also, if the laptop can accept at least a second HDD, your editing experience will benefit too. Do not know about the Alienware Dell's, but the multiple internal HDD's was the reason that I went with Sager - I could get 3x 200GB HDD's. Now, they offer even larger ones. Size is great, but more is better.

                                     

                                    Good luck,

                                      For your workflow you may need a laptop, but for AVCHD editing you really need a large workstation with an i7 CPU or better and a good dedicated video card, as well as at least three physical 7200 RPM hard drives. A Core 2 Duo will not suffice.

                                       

                                      The suggested system is way underpowered for what you want to do.

                                        I would recommend at least 2 GB of RAM per core.  So adding to Hunt's suggestion of a quad-core CPU, you should get at least 8 MB RAM.

                                         

                                        Go ahead and get Vista x64 SP2 now, but make sure your new system comes with a *free* upgrade to Windows 7 x64 when it ships.

                                            OK...I got a massive PC to process m2ts files (specs below) but still have staggering after 16 seconds of any video imported in the viewer window and staggering at any level in the program window. Don't get it. Perhaps PPCS4 wasn't really designed to handle AVC HD 16M (FH) files. I have tested with numerous m2ts files with the same result. Do I need more RAM (hard to believe with 2Gb per Quad)? What about a better video card? Hard to believe that as well. Any thoughts guys? Maybe some setting are wrong? Have installed PPCS4 from scratch.

                                              I'm finding tthis hard to believe. I have basically the same system (but with a nVidia video card.. not CUDA) and mine plays 1920X1080 highest quality HMC150 PH mode (24mb/sec) files back in RT at highest quality! Something's up here. You didn't install that codec pack did you? Latest ATI drivers?

                                              Is there a red line above your timeline?

                                                From your specs, I wonder why only 8 GB RAM (4 x 2 GB) when on an X58 board you would normally have 6 slots. For DDR3 you need to populate these per three slots to use as triple channel. So 6 x 1 GB or 6 x 2 GB.

                                                 

                                                It is not a good idea to use a raid0 for the boot disk. You would certainly profit from a separate boot disk like a Velociraptor for OS and programs.

                                                    A common problem is that people forget to turn of search indexing and leave on compression.

                                                     

                                                    Go to My Computer, click and when your disk is shown, right click on the properties and make sure that both tick boxes at the bottom are turned off. Select all directories and sub-directories when asked. Skip files that Windows indicates can't be unindexed.

                                                     

                                                    23-08-2009 01-12-36.jpg

                                                     

                                                    That can help significantly.

                                                      Bumped it up to 2Gb each slot for RAM (was at 4 slots with 2). Now at 6x2 = 12Gb. At least the program window is finally working with "Draft" quality. Highest quality still staggering. Showing 90-100% processing being used for .m2ts files. Hesitant to buy 4Gb RAMs as they're $400 each! I am told I shouldn't mix and match 4Gb and 2Gb in the 6 slots. If I go to 24Gb that will run me $2400....more than the hoss PC I purchased. What should my settings be for virtual memory. Below is what setting currently are. What do you recommend? Thanks...I'm getting close. Mike

                                                       

                                                      Also, how do I avoid going to India for support at Adobe? Is there a direct line to the U.S. for Level 2?

                                                        I would not even consider going up to 24 GB. It would be a waste of money. With 12 GB of RAM, the same I have, you could copy my settings. It works fine for me. Fixed size (min=max) of 8 GB, but I have it on a 2 disk raid0. In your case the D drive may be more convenient. Just make sure you delete the pagefile on the C drive later.

                                                         

                                                        What I miss, and this could be the reason for still sub-optimal results, is some more drives.

                                                         

                                                        27-08-2009 22-37-50.jpg

                                                         

                                                        This may be overdone for most, but it shows you how you can set up more drives. A, B and C are single drives, D is a 2 disk raid0 and E is a 12 disk raid30.

                                                          Harm- This is real eye gloss over stuff for me. I know enough about I.T. to be dangerous but when it comes to allocating drives I'll be going boldy where I haven't gone before. That being said, I below are several screen caps of exactly what my settings are. If you could offer a step by step I would greatly appreciate it. Even though it is a RAID, the C drive has the entire disk space of 984Gb. How many drives should I partition off of that? What will that do to the RAID config? Thanks for your efforts. I am getting close here.

                                                            I have 1 TB total on C. It looks like from your screen cap that you have 1TB on just the A drive.

                                                              I'll start by repreating what I said in post #20:

                                                               

                                                              It is not a good idea to use a raid0 for the boot disk. You would certainly profit from a separate boot disk like a Velociraptor for OS and programs.

                                                               

                                                              Indeed you have two Seagates in a raid0. I suggest you get at least 1 or 2 separate physical disks extra. Use one for OS & programs. Use the raid0 for media and pagefile, and use the 2-nd disk you buy for projects and scratch. Do not partition any disk at all. If will only slow things down.

                                                                Thanks for the reply. OK...let me see if I have this straight.

                                                                1) The RAID0 should not be the operating system drive.

                                                                2) Get 2 separate physical drives in addition (1 TB each OK?)

                                                                3) Move the operating system to one of those drives.

                                                                4) Use RAID0 for media and pagefiles

                                                                5) Use 2nd disk for projects & scratch

                                                                6) No partitioning

                                                                2) All media files loaded on RAID0?

Haven't done that before. Hopefully this is not THAT difficult. I am assuming once the drives are installed and recognized that I copy the entire contents of the RAID0 to one of them and then direct Vista to boot from the new drive. Correct? Or is that too easy for Microsoft?

Dell went over all the specs that Adobe stated in their literature and based on Adobe specs that was what I got....1TB RAID0 500Gb per mirror and no additional drives. You've been a great help but really Adobe should make this a lot easier than all this. Oh well...enough of that, it is what it is.

                                                                        2) Reformat the RAID0 or just delete all files on there after the move to the new drive letter? Hopefully just deleting all files should do. Not sure how to accuratly reformat a RAID0 from Intel.

                                                                        2) Standard NTFS formatting for the two new 1TB drives

I've been VP of sales for a number of years for enterprise software & content management and we always provide precise specifications for prospects and customers that we KNOW works with our software and solutions. I have spent way too much time guessing and stabbing in the dark to attempt to get the staggering to be resolved. Everyone has been quite supportive of my efforts but this really is an Adobe issue as to why they don't provide this to customers. Am I missing something? Do they have this listed somewhere?

                                                                                  D: Seagate 500 for pagefile and projects

                                                                                  E: Seagate 1 TB  for media

                                                                                  F: Seagate 1 TB for scratch, exports and backup of selected data.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  It would be a waste of space to use a 1 TB disk for just OS & programs.

                                                                                  While a raid0 is faster than a single drive it also entails a bigger risk of losing all data.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  While Jim's point about AVCHD is valid, it requires a very capable processor because of the CPU intensive nature of the material, it may be that your new system can handle it, even if barely, but that requires an additional step.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  While booting your system, enter the BIOS, go to the tweakers or advanced tab and search for a setting for BCLK Frequency. The default value is 133. All you may need to do is adjust that value to 162 and then save the settings by pressing F10. This will effectively overclock your system to 3.4 GHz, which is completely safe to do if the cooling is good. I suggest you check the temperatures of your CPU cores with HWMonitor to see that idle the temps will remain somewhere around 40 degrees C and under full load around 60 degrees C or lower. If that is the case, you are done and then you have taken all the basic steps to get the most out of this system. If temperatures go over 65 degrees under load, I would throttle back to 152 (3.2 GHz) and check again.

                                                                                  • 38. Re: Problem with m2ts files in PPCS4

                                                                                    D: Seagate 500 for pagefile and projects

Or is the RAID0 a problem for performance where PPCS4 would reside?

You really need to reinstall, unless you keep the raid0 intact and then add another 500 G disk as D drive. You can't break out a raid0 to individual disks without losing all data.

It may be possible Dell has modified the BIOS in such a way that BCLK settings are not obvious or even disabled. Maybe you can find it under tab related to Performance, Overclocking, Tweaking or something similar.
