    Export sequence from Media Composer/ Sony Z1U

     

     

    System Spec -Intel Core 2 Quad CPU @2.4 Ghz– 2 Ghz, 3GB of Ram

     C and D drives – 200Gb capacity /External Hard drive of 335 GB capacity

    Windows XP 2002 version/ Avid Media Composer v2.6

    Somebody, anybody, help me, please!

     Using Sony HVR-Z1U and I am trying to export a sequence (shot in 1080i/50 HDV) out from the Timeline directly to Mini DV Tape in ZIU camera.  When I turn the camera on and move to VCR setting and make all the required settings as prescribed in the Sony HD Video handbook – such as Set VCR HDV to HDV and HDV-DV CONV to OFF in I LINK CONV - plus in Avid Media Explorer – attach I- Link cable and there is no image in the camera viewfinder or flip out screen at all and I cannot record material. I have no problems importing materal into the avid and can also see image on camera viewfinder

    1 – I have gone to Output -  Export to HDV device – Export to HDV square comes up., pressed OK and then a box comes up with export as an Mpeg Transport Stream comes up, which I do not want to do.

    2- File – Export – Export as dialogue box – I go into options and there is no straight to HD Camera option

    3 – Mark in/out marks in timeline, play clip and record directly to tape in camera – no image in camera at all.

     

     I’ve pulled so much hair that out that I think I’ve given myself a Brazilian wax! Can anyone help?

     

    - When I changed the format to 25i PAL, an image came up on the viewfinder, but did not when I changed it back

    Luca's right.  In any long GOP format, if you don't create an mpeg transport stream you have nothing to write back to tape.
