EX-1 MXF files and Prospect HD issues

Can Prospect convert the MXF file to cineform intermediate? If not, how do I convert spanned mp4 clips as one cineform clip in HD link? When I convert an 8GB mxf file in hdlink, it comes out as only 600mb and is green screen. The clips are 1080 24p HQ.

Thanks
Mike

thanks guys.

LH it is.

I take it that even though Adobe's site still totes the HS card, it appears that the card is on its way out even though aja updated the drivers to support Premiere CS3. Your thoughts?

We support MXFs, you systems seems to after an install issue. Try the CineForm->Tools->Register components. If that does fix it, please file a trouble ticket www.cineform.com/support

thanks David, just tried the 8gb mxf file to completion, it shows a green check mark for completed but is only 3 gb in size and is green screen when played back. I'll try your fix.

registered componets, but it still gives the exact result. It converts small files, mp4 or mxf, but large ones have problems. Also David, I am testing out Prospect with my EX-1 to see if it meets my needs, so I cannot submit a ticket.

Adobe specifically wrote drivers (their own) to support the HS card for PPro 2 (if I recall correctly) release. Adobe never wrote drivers to support the LH and LHe. For LH and LHe support driver support comes from AJA or CineForm. Because of this, Adobe doesn't specifically endorse the LH or LHe card.

Ignore that, the ticket goes through anyway.

Ok...

So aja updated the HS drivers to support Premiere CS3. The LH card is the recommended card but not offically supported by Adobe.

Both the HS and LH cards offer 10bit digital HD SDI. I have looked at the Xena overview page and can see that the LH card has some extra features like genlock, a few more i/o channels, 12 bit HS SD analog component/composite i/o and 8-channel SDI embedded audio I/O.

What other advantages does the LH have over the HS?

Does the HS have embedded SDI i/o?

another test, tried a 2.3 gb mp4 file and get this error in the log

Error: GetPin(pUpStream,PINDIR_OUTPUT, &outputPin)(0x80004005-Unspecified error) in (DirectShowGraph.cpp at 377)

Error: ConnectPin(AudioDecoder, pin)(0x80004005-Unspecified error) in (ConvertGraph.cpp at 2275)

just converted a 1 GB mp4 file, it converted it fine.

I took the 3 clips that spanned together, dropped all three mp4's on the timeline (PPRO3) and rendered out to cineform avi, of course no audio, but at least I can edit the files in a timeline now. Final Cineform file was 22 gb's.

Tried Prospect 4k still the same error

Error: GetPin(pUpStream,PINDIR_OUTPUT, &outputPin)(0x80004005-Unspecified error) in (DirectShowGraph.cpp at 377)

Error: ConnectPin(AudioDecoder, pin)(0x80004005-Unspecified error) in (ConvertGraph.cpp at 2275)

the file was 2.3 gb mp4 Sony EX1 file, it appears anything under 2 gb's works fine.

tried Prospect HD, 2k, 4k, all with the same error (although Prospect hd was (ConvertGraph.cpp at 2258) instead of (ConvertGraph.cpp at 2275)


Aspect Hd, same error, I have tried several different mp4 files over 2gb's, all do the same thing.

Hi David, do these errors sound like an install problem? Or a bug? I would hate to do a fresh install of windows to find out it was a bug.
