Using Media Encoder CS4 to make EXCAM mp4 files ?
on Jul 12, 2009 at 8:33:55 pm

Does anyone know how to make EX-XDCAM .mp4's from the (windows) Adobe
Media Encoder CS4 ? I have an AJA LH but, no raid for it. What are the
exact spec's to make a final, say a TV show to a realtime ( .mp4 ) format that Premier can playout not needing rendering. I do have a striped two disk set in my box so I have some speed.

Can you explain WHY you want to do this?
I doubt Adobe Media Encoder supports this unless Sony's components hook into is (see FCP below).

Telestream Episode can encode file to XDCAM EX MOV but not MP4.
Final Cut Pro can export XDCAM EX MOV as MP4 with the Sony components installed.
XDCAM EX MP4 is unique to Sony. It's an MPEG2 Long GOP in an MP4 wrapper.

Well When I'm done with a 1 hour long project I would like to find the
right ( Mpeg 2 Long GOP settings ) to render out a final. Then flop it on the timeline to get the lower bandwith .mp4 realtime playback.
The whole idea is to make my timeline realtime and less taxing on the hard drives since I don't have a deticated raid just ( 2 internal striped SATA drives ) which is alot easier than uncompressed.
I hope someone could tell me how to wrap a file to .mp4 EX-XDCAM like
mac people can write back to the camera with the FCP importer / exporter. Yeah how come mac users got that advantage to write back to the cards ?

Thanks

Ryan

EXCAM mp4 files ?

I have an .MP4 from an XDCAM that won't open in ClipBrowser 2.6 or Transfer.

I've tried all of the advice you have from other threads on this. I've also downloaded calibrated's plugin and it can't read it either.

I'm frustrated because the file is there, and my OS is calculating the size (3.2GB) and everything.

Is there any way I can get this data?

Maybe it's corrupted.
Try playing it in VLC player.
If that can't play it, you may need to get the file repaired.

It must be corrupted then.

Can you point me in the right direction to get it repaired?
