Question about Avid Xpress Pro

1 Answer

I am having trouble importing long HDV footage

Hi, I'm using Avid Xpress Pro version 5.7. I shoot on a Canon Vixia HV30, 1080/24p mode. I have not been able to capture from this camera into Avid, so maybe figuring out how to do that could be a solution, but here is the current problem:

I capture my footage in Adobe Premier CS3, and then import that footage into Avid Xpress Pro. Normally, I have not had any problems with this method. In fact, it has been downright convenient because Avid "quick imports" this footage much faster than other file formats I've tested out.

Anyway, I have only been capturing maybe 20 minutes of footage at a time, until now. I have a footage-heavy project and I must capture entire tapes at a time. I have made several attempts to import this footage into Avid but it fails every time with some error to the effect of "Exception: AudioElementaryStreamParser"

How can I fix this problem? Each file is about 01:01:00 long, and about 12GB. Is there some kind of cap on file import size? All of my Drives are NTFS formatted, so I shouldn't have problems with FAT32 filesize limits. If I absolutely have to, I can go back and re-capture my footage in smaller chunks, but the problem is that I have 26 hours of footage that I'll have to go through again. If there is some simple solution (or even not so simple) then let me know please.

Hi and welcome,


How did you import the video to your Studio? Is that camcorder connected directly to the usb port of your computer? If so? please try and check this one. Found this on the Pinnacle knowledge base

Can Avid Xpress Pro be installed on windows vista?


According to the manufacturer's spec, version 5.8 is not supported for Vista. It also requires a FireWire port ( 1394). The application key (dongle) is shipped in the box for legally obtained (first-buyer) software. If you didn't get the dongle, you will need to contact the manufacturer.
http://www.avid.com/products/1906.htm

The software will not work without the key. (Personally, I avoid such software since dongles get lost or damaged.)

I wish that I could be of more help.

After i import my hd video, it is cropped and i


I suggest getting Aimersoft video converter. I use Aimersoft video converter pro and its very good. You don't have to get pro they have different versions and trials so you don't have to buy. I would suggest getting that, because you can remove the black bars from movies. With Aimersoft video converter it supports hd videos and it can remove the black bars. If i helped please leave me a rating.

Avid is a complete different animal. The logic is backwards from Pinnacle or premiere. If you're used to those, Avid will seem like a forgeign language. Also, projects aren't compatible with Avid.

Print to Video from Final Cut to GV-HD700 HDV has been impossible. What are the proper settings for both programs?


Depends how you are out putting the signal and the aspect of the original source footage. If firewire insure input select is hdv / dv, iee. And that remote is selected (if that deck has a remote option). Ensure the aspect ratio is correct as a sequence setting mark the area with an in and out and select in/out in the print to video window. Away you go, unless the tape is for broadcast (which I doubt as HDV is not generally a deliverable format).

Do you mean .omf and .mxf? On mac the souce files are quicktime. Audio, generally works with .aff the best but can use .wav also. Though that message seems to suggest it is an audio card problem. I'd check if you can record in other sofware programmes and maybe if you have an on board sound card as well as an external one (if using PC) turn the on-board on off in MSDos as it could be conflicting.

HD footage stutters after captured in Final Cut Express HD 3.5.1


Did you capture as HDV? When you render is it ok? Some times it is best to capture as DV not HDV the quality will be as good (letter boxed) but it means fce is not having to decode the mpg4 compression of HDV in realtime. Can lead to a jolting due to extram RAM usage.
