These links should help, you must convert the AVI file type -

I encountered the same problem months ago. I use this solution and it works very effectively.

Would this be of any use converting AVCHD to MTX compatible files as well?

Thx -

I'm going to guess not, as the Canopus utility was written several years ago specifically for DV avi files and it would not know what to do if given an AVCHD source clip

Hi nghiadt,

Please let us know your findings concerning your issue.

Has the links provided by autumn about converting your AVI type made the clips realtime?

Best Regards,
Sam

I want to run the file directly from a Sony HVR-Z7 with Realtime Matrox card without the need to one through software convert any. Matrox can help me to fake this is not so?

Hi nghiadt,

We are sorry for the inconvenience in your workflow. You will need to convert the DV AVI files to be compatible in realtime with Matrox presets:

Quote:
Sony records AVI files on the CF card using the AVI Type 1 standard but Matrox only supports AVI type 2 files (Premiere Pro CS3 supports both Type 1 and Type 2). So in order to get my AVI files from CF card to work using the RT.X2 LE, I have to first convert them from AVI Type1 to AVI Type 2. I could use Premiere Pro CS3 to do the conversion but there is no way to quickly batch convert 100's of individual files without creating a single larger file.


Hope this helps and please let us know your findings.

Best Regards,
Sam

I have found that if I import files from the MRC1V Compact Flash recorder (which comes with the Z7) into a Matrox RT.X2 project that they play back in real time without the need to render.

These are HDV files, .m2t.

Perhaps it would be easier for you to capture to CF as well as tape and then just copy the .m2t files from the CF card to your computer? This is the workflow I'm using and I'm very happy with it. Quick file transfer, and the tape for archive.

HTH

The nice part about this workflow is that you can do the conversion while transferring the footage from your CF card to your system's video drive. The additional time to convert the file during the capture is negligible - I was able to transfer 2 hours of footage in 15 minutes over 1394.

Give it a try - it is a pretty easy and effective solution compared to some of other workflow "fixes" out there.

mark_m - your M2T files work in reeltime because they are HDV files. It is only the AVI files from CF that have problems because they are Type 1 files, while Matrox only supports Type 2 files.
