    MXF from P2 to Avid Xpress 5.1.3 - Master clip only goes to 19:51 min?

    I am trying to import some MXF files from a P2 camera (HPX500) to edit in Avid Express Pro 5.1.3. I copied the MXF files into the Avid MediaFiles/MXF/1 directory and then tried to view them in the timeline, but for some reason, each master clip only goes up to the 19:51 min mark on the time code. It seems like there is some kind of restriction and that it can't go past that.

    Anyone have any experience with this? Is there some kind of limit to file size and if so, how can I change this? Thanks in advance for the help!

    Have you had a chance to check out this page: http://www.avid.com/p2/

    The reference guide on the right is really well done and there are also a few blog entries in community.avid.com on P2 resources that should be very helpful.

    No, I actually haven't seen that yet, but I will definitely check it out and let you know what I find.  Thanks for the help!

    This is a very old version of the Avid and a brand new camera. Any chance you could update the Avid? My guess is these are spanned clips, are they 2 gig in size? If so, this is the issue.

    Also, are you importing the spannned clips from the P2 card, or have these files first been transferred to FireStore? The latter seems to mess up spanned clips.
