Long file import issue
on Apr 1, 2014 at 2:35:51 pm

Hi
I am having trouble importing a Long Motion JPEG A type into FCP. I find that if i create a short file, it goes into FCP 6 fine, but a long one (2 hours and more) brings up a "file not recognised" error.

Any suggestions as to
1) why
2) what i could do about it
or
3) what file type I could make that WILL go in. It needs to be smaller than pro res (which goes in fine) and I found that motionj peg was 1/10th size to perfect/

Any thoughts much appreciated.

How are you delivering this file? It almost sounds like you're encountering a 4GB file size limit interent in some disk formatting.

FCP doesn't edit that format natively...you should be converting it to a codec FCP does work with, like ProRes.

Hi thanks for that.
The hard drive is ntfs format and works fine on my Mac with fcp.
If that file type us t supported what else apart from pro res is support ed. Pro res seems overkill as it's just a PowerPoint t recording .
