Munted Quicktime File Ex SI2K - help appreciated.


In fairness to Silicon Imaging and P+S Technik, I think I switched off the camera while it was still rolling after going forward to tail slate all the cameras and getting into bother with the audience mass exodus. On return I was distracted by others and I think thought I had already stopped the roll. Prospect 4K has a fix for broken .avi files. There may be one for .mov files which is what this request about finding out.

Here's a weird one for anyone with the knowledge.

At the Sonic Sessions gig last night The second of two long files originated in Quicktime has gone errant in its ways.

It neither plays back on the camera nor in Quicktime on another computer and is reported as a generic import error in Premiere operating with Prospect 4K.

The camera was running, timecode was rolling, the pictures were moving and all seemed well with the world.

The error report by Quicktime is ERROR -2048 cannot open file because it is not a file that Quicktime understands.

If it was a cineform .avi file, then I could run the repair utility.

With the quicktime file, it is an orphan. There is a 51.4G file there waiting to get out. It is occupying disk space so I know its there, I can practically smell it.

So, does anyone know any neat trick to recover this file?

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
