Exporting Issue
on May 14, 2013 at 8:41:17 pm

So I finished editing my project, tried to upload it but I get that damn "still referencing media on camera" pop up. So I used the "Reimporting from Camera/Archive" feature but still couldn't export. Then I tried to transcode the media to create Create optimized media but still couldn't export. I trashed my rendered files., still couldn't export. I'm out of options.


Any advice?

Can you export at all?

I faced this on some of the footage I brought back from NAB. Particularly one of the longer interviews I did from the show floor.

Eventually I noticed that the project I was working on was a long compound clip where I'd married the double system audio from my H4n to a video clip that I'd shot on my DSLR. But in reviewing the clip, I noticed that the compound had 3 minutes of video attached to about 5 minutes of audio where I'd let the H4n run after I shut off the DSLR shot.

I don't think that caused the problem because I've done that before without issue - but somehow - and I don't have a clue about whether it was the original video file, or the audio file, or the compound that I created from them - a corrupt "end of file" marker got created so that X trying to process the clip resulted in an internal failure.

Essentially, the clip would import - I could range it, tag it, edit with it, - but every time I tried to Share any project that contained that clip, X would NOT see it as a complete project and my Share options would be greyed out for that Project.

The solution was to go back to the BAD clip and export a new RANGE (with a good END marker) and reimport and replace the damaged clip with that.

Anyway, that solved the problem for me.

I was lucky because with just a few master clips, identifying the corrupt one was pretty easy. If you've got a bad clip among a lot of others, you may need to do the traditional problem finding process of copying and deleting the first half - then the last half of your timeline to narrow down where the problem is. And work that way to ID what's bad.

It's also possible that what I experienced (greyed share menu) can also be caused by other incomplete links to clips - so it may be something like unfinished calculations or other problems different from my "bad clip" but that's how it worked out for me.

But that's what I finally figured out as a cure.

Good luck.

It *might* have simply been that X was processing stuff behind the scenes and wan't done.

Often with X, patience and allowing the software to calculate in peace for a while will solve issues.

Honestly, some times I just go have lunch or knock off until the next day leaving my system open to process and render - and when I come back, stuff that wasn't working before IS working.

As I've often noted, just because X does a LOT of stuff instantly, doesn't mean it's ready to do everything instantly.

FWIW.
