  • dv avi export

    a client brought me avi files on an external hard drive it was from a 2 camera shoot he did with sony1000's I edited it down and mixed the 2 cams then exported it back onto the hard drive as a DV Avi when he got it back he could only hear audio no video was playing in windows media player. It crashed his pinnical software as well. I checked them here and everything played back fine. Any ideas why he couldn't view them?

    edius pro 3.64 with broadcast installed

    If he can't view the video he doesn't have the codec required to play it back -- I suspect it's not a DV AVI file but possibly a Canopus DV file. You can use GSpot to determine which codec a particular file requires.

      thanks for the reply T Hoff from the list of avi's in exporter on edius is there a "generic" one I should use instead? or should i use the link you gave me and determine what his originals were and then see if edius has a matching codec? he needs to be able to encode the switched avi's for upload on his computer to his web site

          The "Uncompressed AVI" file will get you a file that is as generic as it gets, but it will also be very large.

          My recommendation would be to select the "Canopus Procoder Express for Edius" exporter, then "Select Generic Target", and choose "AVI (DV)". That will be a file that matches your source material nicely.

          You could also select "AVI" in the last step above and then select a codec of your choice in the "Advanced Output Settings" dialog later on in the wizard.

            This is the best and fastest way to export MSDV (compatible even with FCP!) files out of EDIUS.

              Could be, but I can't see a thing -- I just get an image placeholder.

                  Yes I did, I even tried pasting the URL into a separate browers, all I got was an empty window with the image placeholder.

                  Anyway, I guess my curiosity has been satisfied, and that is indeed the easiest way. Thanks!

                      used Sr's method of export, client can now see the files on his win media player but it crashes pinnacle when he tries to open them in there, sounds like he needs to update the pinnacle software? he is using version 9. Pinnacle says it can handle type 2 dv avi files which is what these are correct? i assume if his win media player can play them the codec is installed on his system wonder why pinnacle crashes when he tries to open them there?

                        The files you are creating with that method will play on all windows machines. Uses microsofts dv codec. If it crashes in his pinnacle software there must be something wrong there because these files will even be accepted by final cut.

                        So clients needs to get updates :)
