Compressor & Quicktime Error: 0
on Sep 25, 2009 at 12:15:23 pm

Hi,

I've been trying to compress a fcp project but the video always fails because of a QuickTime Error: 0.
The audio file works great everytime tho.

Anyone ever experienced that?

I'm pretty rookie at understanding all the formats and everything.

I already tried to export it using the QuickTime conversion which worked great, the only thing is that I can still see interlaced lines in some shots of my movie.

So that's basically why I'm using Compressor, in the hope that they will go away if I compress it in a progressive mode with a deinterlacing filter.

Please anyone, let me know if I'm all wrong there.

Any help would be extremely appreciated.

Thanks


Strada

Ok so here's what I came with after gathering all the info needed.

Computer- MacBook

Operating System- Leopard (10.5.8)

Software used including version number- FCP 6.0, Compressor 3.0, DVD Studio pro 3

Source codec- DV

Destination codec-AVI

Type of destination use-DVD


I still have some troubles figuring out the source codec and the destination codec. What is a good way to make sure I found what the right codecs were?

Thank you


Strada

I don't understand your workflow.

What's the point of creating and AVI file?

If you needed AVI Compressor is not a good app for that. You're better off using MPEGStreamclip.

Test using a preset (any preset) to make sure there's nothing wrong with Compressor and Quicktime codecs.

Also you should not be on FCP 6.0 and Compressor 3.0. FCP should be 6.0.6 and Compressor 3.0.5 I believe. Updates fix bugs.

Computer- MacBook
Operating System- Leopard (10.5.8)
Software used including version number- FCP 6.0, Compressor 3.0, DVD Studio pro 3

Source codec- DV
Destination codec- MPEG-2 video elementary stream
Type of destination use-DVD

I re-checked my codecs and I think this might make more sense. Let me know if you thing I'm wrong there.

I've been able to compress it once, I used the setting DVD: Fastest encode 90 min. The only thing is that the quality of the video is really low.
