Sync Problem when transferring...HELP!!!
on Nov 21, 2008 at 1:22:16 am

I shot about 40 min worth of footage using an hpx500 at 720p at 30fps

I am using the Panasonic AJ-PCD20 P2 card reader to transfer to my FCP

When i review it in the tranfer window the audio is synced, when I transfer and view, the audio is not synced and it seems to get worse as the clip plays.

What the heck should i do???

Have Perian installed? Remove it. How about this too...the part about remove pulldown....

#36 - One or More P2 files failed to import.

Shane's Stock Answer #36 - "One or more clips failed to import..."

Very often in the field with this camera the camera operator will delete clips from the P2 card that they just don't like. That is the beauty of this camera. But, the still for that video file (located in the CLIP folder in the CONTENTS folder)...the still that you see when you are in the P2 Import not deleted. So you will see the image, and the name, but the video file would have been deleted.

What you can do it compare the file names in the VIDEO folder and CLIP folder and see if anything is missing. If something is, then you know what the problem is. You can then just import the rest a few at time, skipping that one. the P2 Import the P2 Browser, there is a little sprocket drop down menu. Click on that and choose PREFERENCES. Uncheck REMOVE PULLDOWN and then try importing again.

ALSO...make sure your file names aren't too long. Try shortening them and see if that works.

I have ingested all my footage without unchecking REMOVE PULLDOWN, and I don't have a backup of the .MXF files - :( :(

My footage plays back half speed, and with only the first few seconds of audio. is there ANY way to make this footage play correctly so I can edit it?

any help extremely gratefully received!!....
