Not enough info. Try getting a copy of the GSpot Codec Information program (google it) and report back here what it says about the file. Size is almost certainly not the problem.

Analyzing the files that fail to open in contrast to those that do open just fine shows one glaring problem: All lines in the project.prel file (which is just an XML file) where there should be decimal numbers in <StartKeyframe> or <Keyframe> tags are damaged. Example: Correct version: ...

I think the simplest way to this is to use MP4Box. ./MP4Box -add file1.mp4 -cat file2.mp4 -cat file3.mp4 output.mp4

FFmpeg should be able to do this - assuming you don't mind getting down with the command line (there may be some GUI options out there too possibly). My Olympus E-P3 produces .MTS files - I assume they're similar (AVC/AC3 in a Blu-Ray Video wrapper). I ran the following command: ffmpeg -i 00001.MTS -vcodec copy -acodec copy -f mp4 00001.mp4 That just ...

This can also be accomplished if you have VirtualDubMod and a TextSub provider installed such as VobSub or VSFilter. To use VobSub, during installation you must select the Plugins -> TextSub for VirtualDub and Avisynth option. To use VSFilter, you must locate the VSFilter.dll file in the installation directory and copy it to the plugins folder with the ...

After tearing my hair out I found the "hand cursor", now I can drag the panel around however I want it :)

Most likely, the jerkiness is just your system being overloaded. Many screen capture programs record relatively large files to avoid loading the CPU while capturing, but this means that the data rates needed for playback can be very high and thus can result in problems with reading the data fast enough to keep up with playback. As far as the degradation, ...

You can't do much about it. Movie Maker can only export in WMV format - and WMV is created for small video sizes (at the cost of quality). You will need another software package to export in other formats than WMV. Check out Pinnacle products for alternative - they target amateur producers.

Driver type ASIO Audio device ASIO4ALL v2 Aha, there we go. ASIO is designed to give only one program at a time access to the audio hardware. As I said, this is in principle a good thing, because it ensures the DAW can run trouble-free and without overly long latency or crippled sound introduced when the OS tries to combine the audio from different ...

Blender does have compositing capability, and can be used to do some of the stuff that AE does. It's free, but you have to learn how to use it, so how highly you value your time counts in the final equation. If you want to see Blender in action as a compositor you can see the "Tears of Steel" short film made with Blender last year.

I can recommend Adapter. It is a Wrapper for the ffmpeg package and does its job pretty well. Because of its easy UI. You could also use ffmpeg directly via macports, but I think that Adapter is far easier to control.

The good news is I didn't just overlook something. Transcoding .WMV to .MOV is a real problem. The bad news is that it cost me $29 to solve it. I purchased the "Player Pro" license for Flip4Mac by Telestream after reading this support article by Apple.

Sadly Adobe doesn't support FLAC in any of their video products. The only Adobe product that supports it so far is Audition. Though there is this great and open source plugin that works just fine with CS6 even though it was made for CS5. Plugins made for CS5 are usually compatible with CS6 and CC. For CS4 there is a 32bit version of the same plugin: ...

iMovie comes free with a Mac and can easily do what you want. Here's how I'd do it, for each section you want to replace with a freeze frame: Decide where you want to start and stop the freeze frame. Cut the video clip at each of those points (right-click and select "Split"). See how long (exactly) that section is. Within that section, click on the frame ...

HitFilmFX integrates nicely with Sony Vegas Pro 12. It is much cheaper than AE. Take a look at Sony Vegas Pro 12 Suite. There is also Boris RED and Boris Continuum Complete for Sony Vegas, GenArts products, NewBlueFX...

After Effects is an extremely powerful tool, not just because of the out of box abilities but also its integration with 3rd party plugins...In some degrees I could say it can compete with Nuke which is like 4k, and even more for Nuke X In terms of Pro-sumer/ boarder-line Professional Software these two are in a league of their own, being both MAC and PC ...

Best tool for this is MediaInfo. This tool is opensource and has nearly daily updates for features and bug fixes. It is an analyzer of media files. Have many levels of how deep it will report you about media file. While it is not checking the integrity of the whole media file it check correctness of headers and tells you about capabilities.

1. Recover broken files I found this online application very helpful. http://www.vibait.com/software/premiere-fix-keyframe.h-142/ Simply upload your Premiere Elements file and you get a fixed version in return. Save it to your disk and open it. With one file I got error messages like this one a few times: Parse error on line 1431. Expected 8 values, got ...

While what you are asking about is technically possible, it wouldn't be easy or cheap. It would in fact be very expensive. To use a channel, you would need to form your own cable network within your house and play different sources for each channel into the system. These are the kinds of systems that hotels buy to do their own cable network in the ...

Create a .bat file containing: del "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\SLCache\X19zbGNfZmVhdHVyZXNfXw==.slc" start "AME" "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder CC\Adobe Media Encoder.exe" and just run AME with it. You could add Premiere Pro in as well so that AME get's started before Premiere Pro and all is good. Premiere will then be able to ...

While it can't go direct to H.264, VirtualDub I believe can work with Vfw codecs and can transcode to something more compatible with your other tools. I don't know if Quicktime for Windows supports Vfw codecs or not, but I do believe the Pro version of Quicktime supports H.264 encoding. If you have Adobe Media Encoder, it would also easily do what you ...

Meanwhile, I found a solution. Not sure if there is a hidden function under Windows to do the calibration, but some programs like Skype can be used to configure the camera settings. Whatever settings are applied in Skype->Options->Video Settings, they are global for the overall system.

Adobe premiere has a speech analysis system built in, after cs4 I believe. Machine transcription systems tend to be very poor though - in my experience it is only useful for a vague sense of where you are in the video. See below: http://www.realeyes.com/blog/2010/03/05/caption/ Human transcription services are getting cheaper as many of them use Amazon's ...

I would suggest using ffmpeg, and the -vcopy switch. Usually this will work, but it depends on codec support. Various builds of it have various codecs. If one version of it doesn't work, try downloading a copy from a different site.

Avidemux should do the work. Load File Go to File -> Append and select File To the left of the video window, set video mode to Copy; same for audio mode; set format to MP4. Go to File -> Save -> Video.

For Mac, there is a very simple and efficient solution that results in no loss of quality whatsoever, however it does require you to install some software. Install the clipgrap app. This contains the necessary codecs required for step 2. You don't have to use the app again, and I just left it in the 'Utilities' folder in 'Applications.' Download the ...

You can't edit FCP project files on Linux for sure. Sorry :)

If you are a starter go for after effects, check videocopilot.com for subject of interest.. short: new project, import your prerpared files, create new camera, drag your footage to the timeline, mark the 3d layer switch, set up the positions of the layers(x y z) and roll the camera ;)

Put keyframe distance in the encoding options to KEY EVERY FRAME. When you export in the export options you have keyframe distance, which is used to calculate "intermediate key points/key frames", and the default is 25/30 frames. The player calculates pixels and frames inbetween keyframes. Sometimes it gets lost in calculation because of lost bits or bytes. ...
