It will only work if the complete directory structure is left intact. So make sure you copy the complete BPAV directory and sub-directories to your disk. With 5.03 there were problems with 4 audio tracks, that are assumedly solved in 5.5
I copy from the sxs card to a portable Hdd using the Sony software, and then to my editing computer also using the Sony software. Each CLPR folder has the following files: .MP4 .SMI .PPN .XML .BIM what is missing?
I have just tried the same thing with my laptop, Media browser imported the files ok but still the computer crashed when trying to change audio gain after modifing the audio to two stereo files instead of 4 mono. The source files were a first generation copy of the SXS using Sony EX software.
Check your audio setting on camera and in premiere. Make sure they are match.
Is this just a generic answer? As far as I can see there are no options in the audio menu of the PMW 320 camera that alter the number and type of tracks recorded. What options in premiere should I be looking at?
I have tested again by importing a clip directly from the sxs card and I still get the crash when I try to alter the Audio gain after modifing to two stereo tracks instead of four mono.
Are you using CS5 or CS 5.5?
What you describe is a bug in CS5 affecting audio.
The programme crashes when you try to change audio gain after converting mono tracks into stereo ones.
See this post for more information:
I feel your pain because I have a PMW-350K camera which like yours records four audo channels.
I know this is scant consolation for you if you are still using CS5 but this bug has been squashed in CS5.5.
You can change audio gain now without experiencing crashes, at least on my machine using files from my camera.
Hope this helps.
Does than mean that Adobe will give us EX cam users a free upgrade to 5.5 to fix their bugs.
Many thanks for all the replies.
No more likely than Canon uses getting a free upgrade for their MXF files.
"Does than mean that Adobe will give us EX cam users a free upgrade to 5.5 to fix their bugs."
Sadly, this is not going to happen.
But, CS5.5 has a lot more to offer than just bug fixes so I suggest you "go for it".
