Problem 1: iMAC
Problem 2: is not a problem, it is a streak of luck you are not condemned to QuiRcktime.
Problem 3: don't do that.
Are you, like, the official forum comedian?
This is not helpful.
Harm got the numbering a bit off.
Problem 1: You can't change this. The files are MPEG and you have no other options.
Problem 2: This is sometimes the result of shooting in MPEG. Others with experience on this issue may be able to make some suggestions. The only thing I can offer is not to shoot in MPEG. (Meaning, get a diffrent camera.)
Problem 3: This shouldn't be happening. Do you still have the captured clip on the hard drive after the crash?
Some additional info:
1. HDV is always mpeg, If you want quicktime you will have to downconvert in the camera to SD.
2. If you get red frames that means there are dropped frames: capture with scene detection on that will reduce the sync problem. And run a cleaning tape once in a while.
Don't use someone elses tapes.
I have a hdv camera and never have seen red frames.
3. no issues there.
Do not use timecode in Premiere Pro 1.5.1 or CS 5.5.2 unless you have stripped the tape ( ie.but, run the new tape to record timecode,blank recording ) when videoing before hand, works perfectly on PC, no problems with over 100 Sony Pro Digital Master Tapes we have had issues with a Mac and never use it in other Media Business. At 1920 x 1080p do not use Quick time ,Some Macs do not like Anamorphic HDV/mpeg-2 The hybrid recording in this camera if 4.2.2 color space may be an issue ? Normally 4.2.0 to tape; Ask SONY SERVICE. In HDV Tape mode it is > 1440 x 1080 i , are your settings right ? Do not use Cinema Mode 24 fps unless you are going back to 35mm film, frankly there is no point ???
Have a good day ? But, what a great video camera !!!!!!!!!!!!!, the best of both worlds.
Experiment >Why don't you use the hard drive output,it may not be anamorphic, it may solve the problem ? or if desperate go to Sony Vegas Pro 11 ? Actually Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 11 may even solve the issue.
