Big headache from last night miracle today?
Ok, got a very interesting experience here. I tried to import some MOV files taken from a JVC camera wrapped in XDCam format and all green, no video files after importing to M100. No way to view files. Tried installing the latest apple codecs and no go as well. A good friend of mine until yesterday(lol) told me to download VLC. Its a video viewer. Indeed, it worked and was able to view files. PROBLEM, all the files taken by a Sony HD camera with .MTS extensions were changed to .mov files. Upon clicking those files, no video or audio at all. I thought got really screwed and panicked, moved the RAID to another Xserve and all files worked fine. All projects made from Media 100 and bins turned BLACK. Cant play programs and get frequent bad video frame errors. At this point, CLIPWRAP giving errors as well when trying to import same .MTS files.
Next step was to restore to original drive again and tried downloading the XDCam Transfer software which might be the missing link within Media100, but cant import the clips also. (image)
Going back to the thread where Floh mentioned to install the latest Apple codecs without FCP, then I remembered that I have FCP sitting in a box and installed it. After installation, booted again and tried importing the files and played all BLACK clips also. Desperate, I did a software update and updated FCP to 6.0.5 and tried importing the clips again. The video all played in the timeline fine with the JVC movie files.
Shutdown many several times and Media 100 still does not recognize the files. Went home a 6am depressed. This afternoon, bootup - open M100 - tried importing clips - IT WORKED!
