    exporting problem - nothing but a GREEN frame

    Hi everybody,

    I have basically the same problem like this user here: http://community.avid.com/forums/p/110222/638843.aspx

    Unfortunately his posting and the reply does not resolve issue.

    What happens is that the file I am exporting from AVID to soerenson squeeze turns into a steady green background frame with only the audio. The original footage came from a DV camera and is in 1080i. I have other footage in the same project which came from the same camera but was imported to FinalCut some years ago and later imported into AVID from the files.

    I don't know what causes the problem.

    best regards,

    Christian

    ps: my presets in squeeze work fine with material that was imported into FCP first, but the same presets produce a green screen only with the other material. also, I export all videos in two different codecs/sizes/qualities. So, I guess the problem is unrelated to my settings within squeeze.

    Hi Christian,

    moorooduc:
    The original footage came from a DV camera and is in 1080i.

    Which camera?  Which format/frame rate?  Is the footage linked via AMA, transcoded from AMA, imported from files, or captured from tape?  If transcoded, imported, or captured, what resolution is it?

    What steps are you taking to export the file?  What export settings have you chosen?

    Finally, what version of what Avid product are you using?

    It was captured on a Sony HDR-HC1 HDV. The format was HDV 1080i/50. The frame rate is 25fps. The footage was not linked via AMA or transcoded from AMA, but recorded from tape into AVID. the "get info" option says what I have written above HDV 1080i/50 and 25fps.

    I splice the marked portion of the file into the timeline and then simply hit "sent to / encoding / sorenson squeeze". the setting are pretty much the default ones (see attached screenshot).

    I am using AVID MEDIA COMPOSER 6.5.0

    thanks for your help!!!

    I may be wrong, but I think you can't do a QT reference movie with HDV footage.  To test this theory, duplicate your sequence, and do all the following steps to the duplicate.

    1. Cut it down to 15 seconds.  That way the test won't take a long time.

    2. Do a video mixdown to a DNxHD resolution.  I think DNxHD 120 is a choice for 1080i/50.  If not, pick the highest DNxHD number available.

    3. Replace the video in the sequence with the mixdown video.

    4. Export.

    If that export works, and you can see the picture, then I'm right about QT ref/HDV, and the solution is to do a mixdown of your final sequence prior to exporting.

    If it doesn't work, and you still get a green screen, then it's something else and we'll have to keep troubleshooting.

    Actually it´s possible but it isn´t free, you need to buy extra codecs from Calibrated software for Squeeze or other applications to read that QT ref.

    To transcode to DNx before exporting a QT ref is free of course..

    Honestly.... save your self the pain and just export QT mov's.  I gave up on QT ref files eon's ago.  Too many potential pitfalls.
