    Importing IMX50  footage into Premiere Pro CS5.5

    Michelle Farley

      Hi,

       

      I've been trying to import a  Final Cut 6 project into Premiere Pro CS 5.5 without any success. The footage is originally  imx 50 codec.  I do an xml import and I get a error message saying it cant read the .mov codec. It can see the sequence but can't associate any of the footage to it.  I also tried transcoding the FCP sequnce to prores and then doing an xml export but with exactly the same result! Can anybody help?

          Is Premiere Pro on a Mac or PC? Do you have QuickTime Player 7 installed? IMX50 won't work on a PC, at least in a QuickTime container, but ProRes should be fine, so long as you have QT Player installed.

            Hi Colin,

            Premiere Pro is running on a PC. I know I have QT installed but not sure if it is v.7 or not will check.  Thanks for the quick response BTW

              Yep, with QT7 (just Player, you don't need Pro) the ProRes files should work just fine on a PC and, by proxy, in Premiere Pro. I'm guessing you must have an older version installed (or none at all), if they're being rejected.

               

              The IMX50 MOVs won't work since there is no decoder included in QT7; even on a Mac, I believe you'd need a Pro App, like FCP, installed. There are third-party codecs you can get, like QuickTime IMX for QuickTime and DirectShow|nanocosmos, but they're not cheap/free.

               

              The MOVs could be rewrapped as MXF files, which Premiere Pro would ingest natively, but then you'd have to go through a tedious relinking. Of course, you might be able to hack the FCP XML to make it work... but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it

                Hi Colin,

                 

                I am running Quicktime player v 7.7 (the free version- do i need QT pro?). The project failed to import with an error message "unsupporte format or damaged file".

                 

                Any suggestions?

                  QT Player (free) is, or should be, fine. Can you play the MOVs (the ProRes versions) in QuickTime Player? The IMX50 versions probably (99.99999% likelihood) will not play.

                   

                  That said, are you talking about the XML import failing, or the media? Are you trying to import an FCP project file, or an exported FCP XML? You can't do the former; Premiere Pro doesn't support FCP project files. You need to export an FCP XML from FCP itself, which--in most cases--will import into Premiere Pro relatively smoothly. Check the help file for some more information on this: Importing XML project files from Final Cut Pro

                   

                  I don't mean to assume anything, but we need to rule out all possibilities

                    Hi Colin,

                     

                    I will try to play the movs in QT and let you know how I get on.

                     

                    Regarding your other notes:

                    I am importing an exported XML file rather than a project file.

                    The edit time line will come in will all the correct subclip names (ie file 01304.mov has been renamed CU Dave etc) But Prem Pro asks me to identify the media in the rushes folder, offering the filetype window as MPEG2. When I select the file it has for, it returns the error message "unsupported format or damaged file". Wierdly I can see the .mov files in the borwser but when I try to load them into the source window it returns the error message "Unsupported codec".

                      Hi Colin,

                       

                      Sothe results:

                       

                      I tried playing each of the four shots in sequence through QT player. Two played fine. The other two returned an error message 2048: "couldn't open the file because that is not a file that quicktime understands." So they appear to be corrupted or incorrectly transcoded  by FCP.

                       

                      I then tried importing the two files that would play in QT into Prem Pro (without the XML file of course) as though they were rushes. Voila they appeared in the project panel and I was able to add them to the time line and edit them perfectly.

                       

                      No I just have to figure out waht happened with the transcoding. I will try two things.

                      1. I'll try transcoding IMX to AVI with the same sequence and see if that makes any difference.

                      2. I'll try importing another XML sequence from FCP in case the files on that project were corrupted.

                       

                      Please let me know if there are any further steps you think might help.

                        Hey Michelle,

                         

                        Interesting--the plot thickens.

                         

                        Please grab MediaInfo for your OS and use it to analyze one of the files that works, and one that doesn't. If you flip into Text view mode, you can copy and paste those results here. I want to have a look at the guts of the files...

                              Hi Colin,

                               

                              Tried importing same sequence as avi - same result. Loading xml of the sequence caused prompts to link to media. When the correct media was identified, an error message displayed regarding the codec. Also tried importing another sequence in case the original files were corrupted but same result. My friend who exported the footage for me loaded a trial version of the mac version of Prem Pro and tried the the xml export for himself and the sequence imported perfectly. of course in his case its much eaier as the there is no need to copy the source media and therefore the linking stays intact So it seems the issue is two-fold: firstly moving media and xml betweeen two machines rather than two NLEs on the same computer and secondly trnasitioning  a project from Mac to PC. Any thoughts?

                                Could you post/link to the XML you're using? Which of the MOVs worked and which didn't? They all appear to be the same flavor of ProRes, so if one works, they all should (unless the files themselves are broken somehow).

                                 

                                If you skip past one of the files during the relink that you know is not working, can you relink to one that does work? You can also skip the relinking completely when importing the XML, and then attempt a manual relink--right-click a file, and select Link Media, and then navigate to the file that is requested. That might tell us if it's just the broken files that are borking the whole process, or if the XML itself is wonky.

                                • 13. Re: Importing IMX50  footage into Premiere Pro CS5.5

                                  Will do. BTW: what we've been doing is transcoding the sequence to ProRes File-Export-XML then copying the XML and the source clips to a folder which is then copied to an external drive which I in turn copy to my media drive on my PC. In Prem Pro I then go File- Import, etc. Sound OK?

                                    Yep; there's really only one way to get the FCP XML into Pr, and that's to import it. Pr will do the translation when you import.

                                      Hi Colin,

                                       

                                      Sorry about the delay in getting back to you. So now here are the reults of my tests.

                                      I got two new sequences. The first - a straight cut sequence of about 2 mins -  imported the time line as previous attempts and again as before asked for each of the media clips. When I selected the correct file it returned "codec missing or unavailable". BTW the filetype it selects each time for import is MPEG2 even though I know the codec is Quicktime Prores. I've tried selecting clips with both options but same negative result. I followed your suggestion of trying to link them afterward but it made no difference.

                                       

                                      So without many expectation a tried the second clip - a series of five shots two of which had greenscreen elements. Did exactly the same again but when I selected the first shot requested: Bada Bing! It worked. Perfectly. I sat in stunned silence. It stared back. I blinked.

                                       

                                      I had all my media.  The cuts and layers had been preserved. I was able to use the keyer in Prem pro on the first shot nad just for the sheer hell of it , I exported the second clip to After Effects where i pulled the key there. Why did this work and all the others didnt? It was pro res in exactly the asme way as the others. What changed?

                                       

                                      Now, two interesting codas to that.

                                      1. When I exported the project to adobe media encoder the resulting video is black- no pictures. it's my first time using it however and I have probably forgot to select something but ...

                                      2. I created a new project and tried importing the screen footage again. This time it pulled in the sequnce with pictures/audio but the data in the time line. Which is to say that the sequence in this case is one continous grey line whereas on the first import you could see each of the shots and diffrent layers. What Sherlock Holmes called "a three pipe problem". On import it returned "Please check the FCP translation report for possible issues".

                                       

                                      Over to you...

                                        Hi again,

                                         

                                        Solved the media encoder "problem'. The problem was my stupidity. When I clicked to play the file, it selected Windows Media Player instead of Quicktime. When played in the correct application, it was seemless. Oh dear...
