H.264 Skips in Monitor Playback
on Oct 5, 2009 at 4:37:06 pm

Sometimes I have h.264 .mov file that I need to bring into Final Cut and edit or add to a program.

If the Sequence settings match the h.264 or the like, the h.264 file does not play back properly in the TV monitor. It plays in the timeline but pauses playback in the TV monitor.

If I drop the h.264 file into a Sequence with DV setting or the like, I have to render the h.264 file. This can take forever.

Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Furthermore, I am interested in buying a flash file based camera, in which the files are h.264, does this mean I would either have to always render my footage, or not use a TV monitor during playback?

Thank you!

h.264 is NOT a editing codec, it is a delivery codec.

You need to convert the files to a suitable editing codec.



There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!

So, if a Flash camera like Canon HF S10 (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/597438-REG/Canon_3568B001_VIXIA_HF_S10_Dual.html) has an h.264 codec, how would I change the codex to DV or the like?

Import the files in question, and set up a batch conversion project in Compressor.
