Export problems- it's renaming my MOVs to strange things and they're huge!

Hey guys,
strange fcp export problem. I have a 10 minute anim compressed fcp project, 1920x1080, 30fps on a top-of-the-range macbook pro with external terabyte HD. I did a test export a couple of days ago, because our deadline is really soon, and that all worked fine - a 10 minute quicktime, 100% anim codec, was 26GB. That was fine. I did another test clip, just a spinning bitmap for 10 mins, from AfterEffects with similar, succesful, results and file sizes.
Now, however, when I export, it comes out as 60GB, and FCP changes the filename to something which is the first half of the filename I chose, and a strange number for the second half which is different each time I try it. Something like "filena#CF342.mov", for example. This file seems to have video in it OK, but it's 3 times the size, and the data rate is much higher, too high to play back.
The only changes I've made since my successful test are replacing many of the low res previews with hi res versions, and adding 1 minute to the end. And I changed my QMaster setup, not sure if that's anything to do with it.
Anyone got any ideas? I'm getting pretty worried.....
thanks in advance....

Thanks for the quick reply! No, don't think that's the problem. The new render doesn't have an alpha channel - it's Animation 100% Millions (not Millions+), and I don't think that would add more than 25% to the file size anyway. It also wouldn't account for the strange renaming of filenames. And the increase in length is only 10%. The file size has tripled!
The final delivery format was going to be animation, 1920x280, because it's going to projected on a 30m wide cinema screen and live TV tomorrow night but our playback solution (while it handles the test files ok) can't handle the data rate of these strange new files: it's 800mb/s, which is pretty ridiculous.
The renaming of the files suggests (to me at least) some kind of bug/error, but it doesn't report any kinda error in either fcp or quicktime.
Plan B is to recompress the strange big file using h264 which gives an ok quality and is 10% of the size. Reason I'd like to do it animation is I need to do several versions with different gamma, so I need to do further processing on the rendered file after it's dumped from FCP.
Any thoughts? I'd like to get to the bottom of this.
one thought - I didn't tick "recompress all files" and some of the source DOES have alpha - would it be taking the alpha channel even though I didn't ask for it?

    Welcome to the Apple community.
    A number of people have reported similar issues recently, many appear to have found a discrepancy of some kind in their account settings and making changes to these settings or simply resetting them has resolved the matter.
    Check your account details are correct, check that you are using the correct details for Location, Region and Time Zone. You may want to change these settings and then change them back to see if that helps.
    You might also try logging out of and then back into your iTunes account (Settings > iTunes Store > Apple ID’s > Sign Out) and restarting your router. (Some have reported that after doing this, they need to check for rentals even though it may report that there aren’t any, after which rentals once again appear in the ‘movies’ feature)
    Rentals should appear under their own heading in the ‘Movies’ feature, you might also check at Settings > iTunes Store > Check For Rentals.

  • SQL Server 2012 Management Studio:In the Database, how to print out or export the old 3 dbo Tables that were created manually and they have a relationship for 1 Parent table and 2 Child tables?How to handle this relationship in creating a new XML Schema?

    Hi all,
    Long time ago, I manually created a Database (APGriMMRP) and 3 Tables (dbo.Table_1_XYcoordinates, dbo.Table_2_Soil, and dbo.Table_3_Water) in my SQL Server 2012 Management Studio (SSMS2012). The dbo.Table_1_XYcoordinates has the following columns: file_id,
    Pt_ID, X, Y, Z, sample_id, Boring. The dbo.Table_2_Soil has the following columns: Boring, sample_date, sample_id, Unit, Arsenic, Chromium, Lead. The dbo.Table_3_Water has the following columns: Boring, sample_date, sample_id, Unit, Benzene, Ethylbenzene,
    Pyrene. The dbo.Table_1_XYcoordinates is a Parent Table. The dbo.Table_2_Soil and the dbo.Table_3_Water are 2 Child Tables. The sample_id is key link for the relationship between the Parent Table and the Child Tables.
    Problem #1) How can I print out or export these 3 dbo Tables?
    Problem #2) If I right-click on the dbo Table, I see "Start PowerShell" and click on it. I get the following error messages: Warning: Failed to load the 'SQLAS' extension: An exception occurred in SMO while trying to manage a service.

    I get this problem fixed in my PC that is an end user of the Windows 7 LAN System? Note: I don't have the regular version of Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 in my PC. I just have the Microsoft 2012 Shell (Integrated) program in my PC.
    Problem #3: I plan to create an XML Schema Collection in the "APGriMMRP" database for the Parent Table and the Child Tables. How can I handle the relationship between the Parent Table and the Child Table in the XML Schema Collection?
    Problem #4: I plan to extract some results/data from the Parent Table and the Child Table by using XQuery. What kind of JOIN (Left or Right JOIN) should I use in the XQuerying?
    Please kindly help, answer my questions, and advise me how to resolve these 4 problems.
    Thanks in advance,
    Scott Chang    

    In the future, I would recommend you to post your questions one by one, and to the appropriate forum. Of your questions it is really only #3 that fits into this forum. (And that is the one I will not answer, because I have worked very little with XSD.)
    1) Not sure what you mean with "print" or "export", but when you right-click a database, you can select Tasks from the context menu and in this submenu you find "Export data".
    2) I don't know why you get that error, but any particular reason you want to run PowerShell?
    4) If you have tables, you query them with SQL, not XQuery. XQuery is when you query XML documents, but left and right joins are SQL things. There are no joins in XQuery.
    As for left/right join, notice that these two are equivalent:
    SELECT ...
    FROM   a LEFT JOIN b ON a.col = b.col
    SELECT ...
    FROM   b RIGHT JOIN a ON a.col = b.col
    But please never use RIGHT JOIN - it gives me a headache!
    There is nothing that says that you should use any of the other. In fact, if you are returning rows from parent and child, I would expect an inner join, unless you want to cater for parents without children.
    Here is an example where you can study the different join types and how they behave:
    CREATE TABLE apple (a int         NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY,
                        b varchar(23) NOT NULL)
    INSERT apple(a, b)
       VALUES(1, 'Granny Smith'),
             (2, 'Gloster'),
             (4, 'Ingrid-Marie'),
             (5, 'Milenga')
    CREATE TABLE orange(c int        NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY,
                        d varchar(23) NOT NULL)
    INSERT orange(c, d)
       VALUES(1, 'Agent'),
             (3, 'Netherlands'),
             (4, 'Revolution')
    SELECT a, b, c, d
    FROM   apple
    CROSS  JOIN orange
    SELECT a, b, c, d
    FROM   apple
    INNER  JOIN orange ON apple.a = orange.c
    SELECT a, b, c, d
    FROM   apple
    LEFT   OUTER JOIN orange ON apple.a = orange.c
    SELECT a, b, c, d
    FROM   apple
    RIGHT  OUTER JOIN orange ON apple.a = orange.c
    SELECT a, b, c, d
    FROM   apple
    FULL OUTER JOIN orange ON apple.a = orange.c
    go
    DROP TABLE apple, orange

  • Since updating the software on my iPhone 3gs it has developed the so called "white screen of death". The phone has not been dropped or damaged in anyway, the problem only developed after software upgrade. Rung apple and they were less than helpful

    since updating my iphone 3gs software it has developed the so called "white screen of death" this happened immediately after software install. It has never been dropped or damaged. I have tried the solution which seems to pop up most of holding down the power button and the home button for 10 seconds but this hasnt helped at all. Tried ringing apple, who were less than helpful and disinterested as the phone is out of warranty. I am hoping there is a solution which doesnt mean shelling out for a new phone! any ideas?

    Basics from the manual are restart, reset, restore.
    Try all of these.
    If these fail, then:

  • How can I export a keynote proyect to a movie?

    I am making an assigment for the university and I don't know how to export a keynote presentation to a movie, ( with short videos and narration inside of it ).
    I tried quicktime export and it didin't work , the whole timing thing was awful!
    I really need this presentation to be exported into a DVD or a CD or anything so I can give it to my guide teacher...
    Help me please
    PS: I am using a MacBook Pro to make this

    This is a well known problem with Keynote 6.1, the only thing you can do is use Keynote 5.3 instead, if you have it.
    Meanwhile sit back and wait to see if Apple issues a fix in the schedule of updates they said they would issue during 2014.

  • HT1657 What happens when you rent movies and they don't play? How come that question is not on the list?

    What happens when you rent movies and they don't play and you tried getting credit for it?  I rented two movies which they were very very old movies in black & white and they both don't play.  I never had this problem before even when downloading videos. Now how can I get credit for it?  I contact itunes a number of times and no one has done nothing as of yet.  Itunes also asked me for my order number which I sent them but still no credit.

  • Rented movies failed to download and are gone from downloads

    I rented three movies on my ipad.  One downloaded successfully, the other 2 failed.  I kept trying to download and they kept failing dues to space.  I removed some of my other movies to make space and they still failed to download.  Now they are completely missing from the downloads area.  When I click on the movie in the store it tells me that the movie is already rented and is in the cloud and I need to go to downloads to download it.  When I go to downloads it's not there.  When I go to rentals under videos there are two grey boxes there where the two movies should be.  If I click on one of them I can see the movie title and description and then there is a cloud icon.  When I click on the cloud icon and log into iTunes it tells me I have to download the movie in downloads.  So I'm stumped.  I've tried loggin in and out of iTunes and also in settings and they are still not showing up in rentals.

  • When I move high quality clips into my timeline in Final Cut Express HD, they look and export low quality. I have tried converting the clips and de-interlacing them, but they always look the same, What is the problem? Thanks so much.

    When I move high quality clips into my timeline in Final Cut Express HD, they look and export low quality. I have tried converting the clips and de-interlacing them, but they always look the same, What is the problem? Thanks so much.

    You should check that the Project settings match the clip settings before editing them to the Timeline.
    Only newly created Projects will change not existing ones by adjusting the Project settings.
    If, for example, you have a Project set to NTSC DV you can only end up in trouble if the clips are PAL 1920 x 1080i.

  • IPhoto copies, Export problem, upload photos

    HELP!!! I definitely need your expertise.
    Here is the background:
    - I wanted to upload photos onto Kodak Gallery through ofoto Express. Since Ofoto can upload pictures from iPhoto, so i went to organize my photos there.
    - I created a new folder (let's call it "F1" ) in iPhoto and then I put new pictures into "F1" from a photo CD, then I manually re-arranged the photo order "F1".
    Then here comes all the troubles:
    1) Can I resize all the photos in this "F1" album all the once? If so, how do I do that?
    2) When I put pictures into this "F1" , I notice the Library, film roll and 2005 also have a copy of my photos except they are all out of order, why is that?
    3) Can I just keep one copy of "F1" without having so many duplicated copies elsewhere such as under the YEAR or keywords?
    4) Are there good and faster way to upload all 300 full size photos?
    5) From the album "F1" I created, I tried to do EXPORT all the photos too, but all the photos that was exported were out of order and not in the right orientation, what can I do and what is the function of this Export then?
    6) How come the Duplicate photo function in iPhoto only put the copy right next to the original? Can I have a seperate duplicated folder? When I made duplicate, I found that the library also have the duplication and once I deleted one copy out of two, it deleted the original image in my "F1" album. I don't understand.
    7) How come I cannot just make a "copy" of "F1" album to my desktop?
    PLEASE HELP, I am so lost!!! Am I the only one that has this problem?
    Thanks,
    MC

    Hi Michelle, I will try to answer some of your questions...
    Then here comes all the troubles:
    1) Can I resize all the photos in this "F1" album all the once? If so, how do I do that?
    You resize the photo when they are exported, not while they are within iPhoto.
    2) When I put pictures into this "F1" , I notice the Library, film roll and 2005 also have a copy of my photos except they are all out of order, why is that?
    I don't know about the out of order part, but it could be that the album you made you manually moved the images where you wanted them. In the library, roll, and year view, the View is set globally by what you chose under the View menu
    3) Can I just keep one copy of "F1" without having so many duplicated copies elsewhere such as under the YEAR or keywords?
    Those aren't duplicates, they are just like an alias or a plcaehold for the real image
    4) Are there good and faster way to upload all 300 full size photos?
    Not really, it all depends on your connection speed. That amount of images will take a long long time
    5) From the album "F1" I created, I tried to do EXPORT all the photos too, but all the photos that was exported were out of order and not in the right orientation, what can I do and what is the function of this Export then?
    This has been a problem for many people including me. There have been work arounds listed here on the discussions by Old Toad. You must rename the images with numbers either within iPhoto as a batch change or when you export them, use the album name as a naming scheme and the images will be numbered. This order may or maynot be what you expected though. Like I said working with so many images is going to be very confusing. I will have to try and find Old Toad's solution for you.
    Are you uploading these images to put in an online album or for prints. You know you can also manage them on the online album, rearranging order,naming,etc. These online places also limit the number of images for each album.
    6) How come the Duplicate photo function in iPhoto only put the copy right next to the original?
    So you can find it easily
    Can I have a seperate duplicated folder?
    yes, make an album and put the duplicates in that album
    When I made duplicate, I found that the library also have the duplication and once I deleted one copy out of two, it deleted the original image in my "F1" album. I don't understand.
    If you made the duplicate in an Album it will be reflected in the library.
    If you delete an image from the library it will be deleted from the album too as the library is the place where all the images are kept. The albums only have place holders. If you want to work on a group of images and want the edits and names etc. to be different than the ones in the library, duplicate all the images in the library first. Make an album and move only the duplicates to the album. Now you can make your images B&W, sepia, edit, crop, etc. and all these edits will be reflected on the duplicates and not the originals n the library.
    7) How come I cannot just make a "copy" of "F1" album to my desktop?
    You can, but it will take some work to get it exported in the order you want. I will have to do some experimenting to see

  • I can't move photos from iPhoto to my secondary hard drive or to a burn folder.  I have never had a problem with this before.  This is something new.   They will not drop into either folder.  Nothing happens.

    I can't move photos from iPhoto to my secondary hard drive or to a burn folder.  I have never had a problem with this before.  This is something new.   They will not drop into either folder.  Nothing happens. 
    I checked my secondary harddrive and there is plenty of memory.
    I emptied my burn folder but the photos still will not drop into it.
    I created a new burn folder, no luck with this either.
    230 photos is the maximum size of the events I am trying to move from iPhoto to save elsewhere.
    I have shut down and restarted my computer.   No change. The photos still will not drop out of iPhoto.
    My Mac Computer Storage shows that I have 62.2GB free out of 249.2GB (movies, photos and contacts taking up the most space)
    My Lacie External Harddrive (2TB capacity) shows that I have 1.79TB available.  It shows that 207,729,520,640 bytes (207.73 GB on disk) are used.
    I have never had this problem before.  It is usually very easy to move my photos from iPhoto.
    I am not a computer expert (I work in surgery so don't have a need for lots of computer knowledge) so please explain in simple terms.  
    Thank you so much for any help you can provide.
    I really appreciate it.

    YES Terence!  Thank you. Exporting allowed me to move my photos from iPhoto into the Burn Folder on my desktop.   But that doesn't explain why I'm having to go that route now.   Have I done something (accidentally changed some setting) on my computer that will not allow me to just click and drag anymore?   I really liked the convenience of the click and drag option. 
    I don't have the time tonight to export and burn a lot of CD/DVDs.  I'll try that tomorrow and make sure my photos are moving properly.  I also need to export photos to my external hard drive to make sure that route is working. 
    Wouldn't you know that my Apple Care Plan runs out this Wednesday?!  I need to make sure everything is working properly before that expires. 
    Thank you so much for your help.   I really, really appreciate it.

  • Export problem "A serious error has occured", or hang, upon export to Encore.

    Hello,
    I am using adobe Premiere CS3 3.2
    I am trying to export my project to a DVD.  I've been told that the best way to do this with minimizing quality loss is to export to Encore.
    My project has some filters that affect system memory and have locked up the computer numerous times before, like Looks Suite and Noise Remover (on some clips)
    when I choose export to Encore, then choose settings, I get the error "A Serious Error has occured...."  Then I trried lowering the settings, and I got the window that says "Rendering", at least, but nothing appeared in that window after I left it overnight.
    So I have some questions:
    - What's the best thing I can do to export my movie onto a DVD with minimum loss of quality?
    - Should I export as a video file first?  Which is the best quality?  Then can I export to Encore?
    - Does it help to pre-render my entire project in Premiere first, THEN export to Encore?
    I'd appreciate some advice.
    Thanks!
    EDIT:  I just tried to export as a Quicktime Uncompressed video with the regular method (Export-> Movie).. and it gave me the error "Could not compile movie..."  then the message "adobe premiere pro is running very low on system memory"
    So I am assuming this is a memory issue?  Then what should I do??
    Also, I want to ask- If I put my entire project with all its files onto an external hard drive, then move them to another computer with adobe premiere pro installed which also has the same filters installed,  would I be able to export this way?

    I am quite sure it is a memory problem... the computer exported other videos in the past just fine, but its never been used for making a film with a lot of filters and such that run down the memory, and so it gives me the memory errors.
    I am not sure what is "Memtest86+"... I would like to try such a program, but in fact this is not my computer... I am using a Workstation at a University and now I have limited time to complete my project (I must figure out a solution by the end of the day on Monday)
    Maybe AVI is the best for some... but I have done comparisons beforehand which found .mov to be the best... and I was even told that uncompressed quicktime doesn't lose quality at all (though in fact it seems to just a bit). So if you not completely sure which will be better, I will go with .mov.
    So I will try a few things- like exporting only the "special" clips which  used a lot of filters on individually as .mov, then reimporting them into the project, then trying to export the whole thing into  encore...  If that does not work, I will try to export fragments as.mov (because if I try to export too much at one time, it has the memory error->crash).. then create a new project, import the .mov files, and export to Encore.
    I only have limited time to solve this problem.. do you all think I am taking the right steps?
    Also one key question I have is about the audio.. do you recommend that I export all of the audio into one wav file, and then put that into the new project?  Or should I just export the quicktime files, with their audio, into the project and keep it like that?
    I appreciate the help, again

  • Exporting Problems

    I've been orking on my sister wedding slideshow in motion. Now I have to export it to a .mov. Have the settings set to 128x720 29.97fps h.264. I've tried exporting it in motion with compressor: it crashes my computer. So Exported the background first w/o the pictures. It worked fine. But then i the bg in final cut then put the pictures in video 2. Then I tried to export , but after a few hours final cut unexpectedly quits. Is my computer fast enough; I have a iMac 24" 2.33GHz intel core 2 with 2GB memory an 7600GT video card.
    I'm thinking if upgrade it to 3GB will it speed it up and not crash?
    Or should I get a MacBook Pro and use Qmaster to distribute the work?
    Also is their a company that I could sent them the files and they would render it for me?
    Thanks !!:)

    Is the 128x720 size a typo. That's a really weird frame size. Not that that should cause the problem. Your computer should be up to the task. I think you're making some mistakes with your workflow. I suspect that your inexperience and ignorance (I don't mean this in a nasty way) are going to make this difficult for you.
    If you want to send me the fcp project (just the project, no media), I'll take a look at it and see if I can see any obvious problem. My email is in my profile. Be sure and archive the project file before attaching to an email (control-click on the project file and in the finder and choose archive).
    A few things. All graphic files should be RGB not CMYK. Also, they should all be 72dpi and no bigger than 4,000x4000 pixels (and that's probably too big).

  • Export Problem in LR 3.5

    Hi folks,
    I have been working with LR 2.7 for a while now and was happy with it.
    PC - Win XP - LR3.5
    Photo's stored on external hard disk (K:)
    The RAW captures of a Nikon 3100 I recently won were not being recognized/imported by LR 2.7 and I installed the 3.5 version to see if it was any better. I would have to buy it anyway by the time I switch to Win7. In 3.5 the Raw files were imported, the settings of 2.7 were nicely taken over but now and I cannot export the files I have worked on to the K: drive of the external hard drive as I used to do with 2.7.
    I get the message 'The folder could not be found' though it is set in the Export Window and I am looking at it in Win Explorer.
    The original RAW captures are on the D: drive but that was always the case with 2.7 as well... I am doing it exactly as I used to with 2.7.
    I tried with a photo from an older folder of my usual camera and everything works fine there.
    The problem seems to be only with the Nikon files. Now I start wondering if there is something with raw format of this Nikon camera that is putting LR in a twist...
    Anybody any ideas to help me out?
    Thanks and grts

    @ web-weaver:
    Of course they go to a different folder and they also get different
    titels/names once processed in LR. The originals are always RAW (NEF) and I
    export them as jpg or tiff files depending on what more I will do to them.
    @ ssprengel:
    I get the message when I have renamed the file in the export window, set
    the folder it has to go to and hit export.
    In the 2.7 version I got it already when I tried to import.
    As I said, this only happens with the Nikon (NEF) RAW files. With the
    Olympus (ORF) RAW files I have no problem at all and had no problem in LR
    2.7 either.
    I cannot see anything wrong in the Export panel nor in Preferences.
    Plug in is Metadata Wrangler and has been updated to the latest version >
    no joy...
    I tried import/export with jpg files and no problem there.
    Yesss! Got it! What I had overlooked was a question mark next to the folder
    in Library (sooo small). A rightclick and telling LR where it was solved
    the problem. Strange, though, as it has never done this before... the main
    folder and the path are still the same as the ones that work perfectly with
    Olympus exports... just a different subfolder named Nikon and another named
    Test... Also strange that if I started off with jpg, it was no problem
    either...
    Anyway, thanks a lot for shaking my senses for me
