    Photo-JPEG mov.’s not Linking but will Import

    I just received some files played out from Shotgun, and they are in the Photo JPEG codec. While I can bring these in via traditional File->Import Media, I would prefer to link to them (alt-drag or via source browser). But when I do so, the resulting clips show the “wrong format” image.

    I don’t know why, is there any way I can force Source Browser to somehow properly handle this codec?

     

    thx

    Hi Job,

    If you open the Source Browser are there any clues to the problem? What plug-in is MC using to link to them, and are there any other choices?

    I'm stabbing in the dark. Sorry.

    I don’t think Source Browser gave me any insight, nor did I see which plugin it is using, nor did ai see a way to change that.

    There are (should be) columns for all the metadata MC can "see", like Codec, FPS, Color Space, and there's a Plug-in column which shows you which plug-in MC is using. If you right click on the Plug-in column you get a drop-down menu that shows you what other plug-ins are available to choose from.

    I'm not certain using a different plug-in will fix a "wrong format" situation, but it's worth a look.

    Job ter Burg:

    I don’t think Source Browser gave me any insight, nor did I see which plugin it is using, nor did ai see a way to change that.

    If you look at the 4th or 5th column in the Source Browser, you'll see it says 'Plug-in'. This should tell you what AMA plug-in it's currently using. It's likely you're seeing 'Can't be Linked'

    You can click on this field and sometimes you'll get a drop-down list of alternatives you can try. If you don't get any alternatives, (and you can't find suitable AMA software from Avid's AMA web page) then importing is the only way left open to you.

    There are a few paid-for plugins out there (like Drastic Mediareactor Lite) that might open up these Photo-Jpegs for linking, but you'd need to check with the company before parting with the cash. Details are on the Avid web page

    Well, you know, first it was finding out that I won't be on TV when I win the Oscar for News & Sports Editing, and now this. I'm sorry; it's been a tough week.
