    Why would a 21 minute video only show up as a partial clip in project panel and timeline?

    met5699

      When I import uncompressed AVI file (21 minutes long) into project panel, it shows up as 4 seconds and 18 frames in length. Clip shows the full 21 minutes long in bridge and windows media player. I have rebooted computer and checked for updates. Also shows up as a shorter clip in After Effects. Any ideas?

          Welcome to the forum.

           

          Where did the AVI Clip come from?

           

          Does G-Spot show the full Duration of that Clip?

           

          I've seen this happen with some converted AVI files, and it appears that the Duration flag in the header is not set properly, or is missed by PrPro.

           

          Good luck,

            Thanks for helping Bill.

            The clip came from my Church service I recorded this morning using vidblaster (I am definitely not a professional). I analyzed the file in g spot. Note in container said 28.5 GB unneeded bytes at end of file. Do you know if there is any way of fixing this file at this point?

              Forget GSpot; get MediaInfo, load the clip into it, and switch the view into Text mode. Copy and paste the results here.

               

              Does the clip only import about 4 minutes of video, or does it only say that it's 4 minutes of video? In other words, if you drop the clip in a sequence, is the clip 4 minutes or 21 minutes?

                Yes the clip itself is only as long as the info in the project panel when I drag it to the timeline, about 4 minutes
