Problem with mp4 in slide list

Recommended Posts

When I drag an mp4 from the file list to the slide list, it says converted file cannot be found. When I check in Windows explorer, I can see and play the converted avi.

Something seems to have gone wrong during the conversion.

Try deleting the converted file in Explorer.

Right click on the original in PTE and then convert WITHOUT modification.

Wait for the converter to finish.

Does the thumbnail of the converted file now look like the thumbnail of the original?

Thanks for the reply.

I have used the Mp4 without modification abnd that works. I have used an external converter to change to avi, and that works as well.

The file that shows the cannopt find file in the slide list does work in preview, but unfortuntely it is difficult to work with in objects and animation (to add a mask for example) as you are working blind.

Peter,

Can you make the mp4 available for someone to take a look at it?

When you converted the mp4 in pte what modifications, if any, did you make? I have been using the converter in pte regularly, as have others, with no problems, so I don't think that the converter is the problem.

Did you trim it etc?

I hve put it in my Dropbox, which I could share.

 

I too have used the converter with no problem until now. I don't think I made any modifications. I have it set to convert automatically, and that's what I did.

As I said above - delete the converted copy and try again.

If it is still the same please post the DropBox Link?

Peter,

I get the same result as you.

If you look at the properties of the MP4 it indicates that the frame rate is 3fps??

When I play the MP4 it just staggers along as though that indication is correct. Has it been through another conversion process at any time?

If you are sure that it is the original straight out of camera then maybe you should suspect tat the camera had a little hiccup.

More detail??

It was created using Olympys Viewer as a time lapse, hence the jerky appearence. Could that be the problem. I've created a few others using Olympus Viewer with no problem. I have tried re-doing the Time lapse creation several times, with the same problems.

 

Thanks

I think the problem is with the Olympus Software. If I convert the raw images to jpegs before making the timelapse, it works ok.

Thanks for your patience.
