I am not sure how this happened but while recording an event, one of the video files in the middle of the event is a DAT file rather than MOV.
I’ve Googled DAT to MOV conversion and think I can save it, but what I”m more curious about is, how the hell did that happen?
I have probably 20 MOV files and there’s one right in the middle that’s a DAT. It’s at the file limit for the DSLR’s (~12 min) but so are several other files and they managed to behave. Why do I have a renegade DAT file that came off my SD card?
Shooting with a Canon 60D and a Class 6 SD card in full HD.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated so if I did something I can avoid it in the future! I swear all I did was hit record again when the camera hit each file limit.
Also, if anyone has experience with converting this to usable format in FCP, let me know.
