Raylight Ultra Demo crashes P2 to avi - Avid DV XPress export to DnxHD instead
 
Hi folks,

I'm angered by the Raylight Ultra Demo. I created an avi file form an mxf using Raymaker and 1) when it imports into Vegas 9.0 it has lots of shash red/green bits in the video and, even worse 2) whenever I navigate to Windows Explorer the new avi file crashes Windows Explorer (I'm on XP) so I have to go to Task Manager to End Program. I can't even get to the file long enough to delete it, so I'm probably going to have to use a DOS command to delete the stupid file to stop Explorer crashing... The actually Raylight plugin seems to work fine.

I've shot an hour or so on a HVX200 at 1080/50i and 720/50pon a Firestore FS-100 so wanted a way to get it into Vegas and Raylight seemed an option but I'm now going to be using Avid DV
Xpress to Batch export DnxHD .mov files to cut in Vegas. I thought I'd share this workflow with people annoyed with Sony's lack of P2 support and who have access to an Avid system and don't want to fork out for Raylight. If anyone has any other ideas, or can shed some light about Raylight, do let me know.

Cheers,

Baldwin

How about using Raylight Ultra to import the MXF files directly into Vegas? That's what it's for.

Yes, the Raylight demo plugin in Vegas seems to work ok and I can import MXF files directly into Vegas but I won't be forking out $195 for a piece of software that doesn't work 100% correctly.

Incidentally, my alternative workflow is working great and I'm happily editing away at the moment:
Import P2 clips into Avid then batch Export to DnxHD .mov and edit the .movs in Vegas

Obviously it involves having Avid and took overnight to export 3 hours of footage, but otherwise worked out ok.

Cheers,

Baldwin

Hi Baldwin,
over at dvfilm.com I noticed an update has been released which fixes your problems it seems
DVFilm Support Blog: Raylight Ultra 1.2.2 Released

- Fixed a bug where more than 8 processors would cause the decoder to crash.
- Fixed a bug where AVI's made with RayMaker would have a scrambled image.
- Improved playback performance with AVC-Intra and more than 2 processors.
