  • Corrupt MPEGHD422 files

    Posted by Jim Watt on November 5, 2016 at 9:44 pm

    Shooting job for the last 3 days, on Sony FS7, 1080/30p recording on 128GB “G” cards. On two different clips, both about 2 to 21/2 hrs in length, on two different days and I think two different cards the clips are corrupt. When played in Premier Pro CC, newest version, they start with a bright red, solid frame that goes on for about 10 seconds, then I get video of what we were shooting, but no sound.

    I put the clips in Catylist Browse and they play fine as do they in Edit Ready. I did a transcode to ProRes 422 in Edit Ready and the clip is fine and as expected…audio and video. Anyone ever run into this?

    Also one more note and I have no idea if this is any way connected to the issue, but ur roducer was using a PC Laptop and wasn’t too swift in handling video files and he did his transfer first before i could do it on a Mac. Is there any way the files could have been corrupted in the PC before I got to them with the MAC?

    Thanks…Jim Watt

    I had a chance to use an FS-7 a while back and went end-to-end on my Windows 7 PC with no trouble whatsoever. (Both 1080P and 4K, for that matter.)

    Did you take the files from the cards themselves or otherwise?

    Producer used my card reader and imported the entire folder. Then I used my Mac and did the same thing.

    Do you know if your producer imported via the Media Browser via drag and drop via the Windows Browser? If you don’t know you’d best make certain your producer is aware that the Adobe Media Browser should always be used, becsuse it intelligently parses the files on SD cards.

    I instructed him to use the media browser. Did he…not positive we were off shooting while he transferred the files.

    Is there any chance he could have corrupted the file on my XQD card as he was transferring it to his hard drive, before I was able to transfer it to my hard drive with my MacBook Pro?

    Been using this camera for about 18 months now and have never seen this, but also have never had anyone data wrangling files using a PC. Always a MAC.

    Is the file structure complete on the card?

    I notice people seem to have more issues with Premiere on Mac. (Just an observation.)

    Yes the entire root folder was transferred to the hard drive.

    Given both that and your initial observation that they play elsewhere and play if transcoded, the files are not corrupt.

    Something else is going on.

    I can’t speak to what.
