    Import issues

    Hiya, Im trying to import a video off a Sony HDV FX1, and the first time it imported a clip for three minutes before a message appears saying " Capture aborted due to lack of progress the media captured to this point may be unusable and/or incomplete"  i tried again with a few methods, and now it will only capture abou 20 seconds before the mesage appears. I've tried all sorts of different variations but same message appears.

     

    plase help!

     

    regards

    Re: Import issues

    I have seen this message hundred of times with Z1 and HV30.

    There is no cure.

    Just retry, go back the tape and retry.

    Try capturing to a different drive or partition.

    Turn off the timecode track when you capture.  SHOULD fix the capture.

    You can add the TC back after capture with the Modify command (and a little mental math Wink )

    It doesn't. It's the small timecode breaks that MC doesn't like.

    Re: Import issues

    It does here, unless someone has recorded using the fast start option. 

    There is also a console command to increase the TC break tolerance though I have had little success with that.

    Set tolerance of timecode break detection during capture across timecode breaks
    SYNTAX tcbreaktolerance 4
    NOTES The digitize window/capture window must be open while entering the console
    command.
    This command sets the interval after which the system will check for a TC break. The
    default is to check the timecode every 6 frames during capture. Shortening the interval
    will catch the breaks earlier. It may also avoid a Timecode ‘slip’ which happens
    occasionally where the timecode on part of a clip can be off by several frames due to
    the (rather lengthy) timecode check interval.
    CAUTION A setting below 3 is impractical – it will generate too many error messages when there
    are not any. The minimum practical setting seems to be 3.
    As stated above, type this change into the console with the Capture window active for
    it to work.

    Re: Import issues

    I heard about this thanks Andrew.

    I didn't know that the capture window must remain open.

    This is the only thing I haven't tried yet.

    The only thing dissapoints me in MC is the capture and HDV.

    But I manage to capture what I want but sometimes with many retries.

    Even the captures from HDV Split generates errors when imported to MC and I have to cut out some frames.

    This indicates that there are errors in the tapes. However it is strange to me as I have never had problems capturing in Liquid HDV with EZ Capture tool.

    sverkalo:

    Maybe not.  It is very possible that neither of those programs and a lot of other popular NLEs only use TC to get an original start point and do not poll the deck/cameras TC during capture.

     

    As you can see from "This command sets the interval after which the system will check for a TC break. The
    default is to check the timecode every 6 frames during capture." in my last post Avid regularly checks the deck. 

     

    FWIW Many of my HDV capture problems when using FW reduced significantly when I set the decks menu to HDV INPUT and HDV output.
