    Was there any progress on this please? What is the correct way to import from the Sony CF Memory Recording Unit to Edius 5.11?

    I was just butting up divided (long) m2t files on the timeline without problem in earlier versions but now have frames missing at the join.

    You can't update it, it'll want a dongle (which you don't have).

    I'm not sure what I can suggest - I haven't received an updated Trial archive package to upload and replace what is there...

    The problem is I still only have a TBYB version. I don't think I can update it from Canopus site - or am I wrong?

    Why aren't you entitled to download the update? All you need to do is create a free user account and register your software.

    Hi Kenneally,
    Could you give me a working link to the 4.52 update? They say the DR60 import is fixed, but I am not entitled to download from the offical site (as of now) - if the feature now works, it'd help me decide between Edius and Vegas, which aslo has problems with the DR60! Thanks,

    Piotr

    Still looking into it. Things have been slow due to IBC and preparation for a new update to the software.

    I hate to be a nuissance, but I'm suspecting my DR60 to be at fault and would like to know whether other users can import files by index from the DR60 without problem. TIA.

    Hi!

    1. I'm running the newest TBYB from www.canopus.com (4.51c, I guess)

    2. I'm in PAL region; most of my footage is 1080/25p (within 1080/50i) - I have the Sony HVR-V1E

    The functionality of handling the DR60 drive is very important to me in regards to my buying decision! Of course I realize I can copy the files manually in Windows, but:
    - it can be very tedious, with sometimes even 100+ directories and several files per directory
    - when i put such 4GB files on the timeline, they do not stich seamlessly due to the long GOP of MPEG-2

    Thanks.

    Ok, they need a bit more info:

    1. Are you running 4.50, 4.51 or 4.51c?
    2. Is it 1080/60i or 50i footage?

    I appreciate your efforts, please be patient with me - I'm afraid we're having a communication problem. So, here is what VEGAS is doing to DR60 spanned files: if they were split due to either cache recording (this produces a short 14-sec m2t per directory), or due to the FAT-32 limit of 4GB - it stiches all fragments into one seamless m2t file per each DR60 directory while copying them to a user-specified folder

    Conversely, Edius usually can't do anything when pointed to an idx file (it simply displays the "can't open file" message), or even if it can (can't tell you when it can or and when it can't) - it puts the stitched file in the BIN (I'm saying 'stitched', because indeed there is one m2t per directory in the BIN, whereas there are 2 on the DR60). However, it hungs when I want to play it in any monitor (player or recorder), it crashes when I try to render it. It keeps the DR60 busy all the time (the red light is on). It denies the advantage of fst off-loading the drive!

    Could you please ask your source what is the procedure - step by step? I'll really appreciate it.

    The joy of an IT-immersed technology - the ingest is a simple matter of copying the M2T files over to wherever you'd like them to be on your system (or network) drive.

    I'd say the purpose of IDX seamless stitching is for long, uninterrupted recordings that have had to be split because of 4GB file size restrictions. (FAT32)

    If you're getting an error message, could you please take a screenshot and show it here?

    Thanks, this is exactly what I expected - only it doesn't do it! There is an error message instead...

    But suppose it does work, what is the idea of what it should do next: I mean, I'd like it to stich the files AND copy them to my local harddrive (thus off-loading the DR60 for immediate use). What do i do to achieve that?

    Because from what I see (assuming it will do what's supposed to be done with an idx file), it puts the clips the Bin, but they are still on the DR60 drive, physically!

    Hi again - I received word back - apparently I was right. You select the IDX file and it will seamlessly stitch spanned files together, making them appear as one clip.

    This only works on clips that have been split due to file size while recording. If you start/stop REC, then a new file is created - these won't be stitched.
