I just finished a shoot and dumped all my BPAV folders into my Drobo, then opened XDCAM transfer and imported all the folders.
I have about 100 shots and 98 of them came in and are uncompressing as I write this... BUT TWO of the clips have a .SMI extension instead of MP4.. and those two give me no image thumbnail preview and when I hit import, it says "There is no codec that can convert and .SMI file"
I hit OK, and it's crunching away at the 98... but I'm scared about the two that are.SMI... can anyone clarify what this is?
It's been my experience that in order for the Transfer program to properly join a clip that is spanning both cards, you must have both cards selected and transfer all the files on both cards simultaneously. Has that been the case for you as well?
