Problem with file exported from Avid
on Jul 17, 2013 at 11:15:52 am


I'm unable to decode exported files from Avid.
After exporting a specific sequence as same as source, all the decoding software i tried makes files that are jammed on one frame and the sound continues.
I'm having this problem only with a specific sequence.
Please help!
P.S. i'm working on a p.c with Windows 7 64bit

If you're exporting 'same as source' what is the source media format that you're using?

Initially this seems like a video codec related issue as the audio works and the file can be read by other applications (even if the video doesn't play correctly).

Check the video codec you're using and if the decoding applications can see or use the same codec. Alternatively, use a different codec on export and see what happens.

If all the other sequences you have work fine, then you'll have to examine the contents of the one bad sequence to determine the problem. If the sequence is very long, split it in two and export one half, does it work? etc. You can typically find the problem area quickly.

Thank you clement,
After trying cutting splacing and using a hammer, i've came to realize it is a problem of the original import and you are right! It is a codec issue.
The seq was originally created on avid 3 and now i'm working on avid 7 (MC).

I will import the original footage again and suffer the consequences.

Thank you again,
