Import Creates Empty Files?

I have Sony HC42 camcorder. I connected it to a brand new 27" iMac and am using the latest version of iMovie. The import window shows up fine, I can see and control the movie, so then I try to import it. The import appears to work fine but nothing get created. The import shows up on the left but there are no clips. If I look in my Movies folder, I can see that iMovie created a bunch of .dv files for the clips, but they are all zero length. Can anybody tell me why importing seems to work fine but nothing gets imported?

Is the /vaults/active/.status/ containing filesystem full? Can you create a directory? Ifso, can you create content in the newly created directory?

  • Edits in iPhoto create empty files

    iPhoto '08 imports photos correctly, but creates empty files (0kb) once I edit. The original is retained correctly, and I can always "revert to original" to get the files back, but about a quarter of my edited photos show up as empty files when I try to view them.  How can I fix it?  Why does it happen to some, but not others?

    Have these been shot with a Nikon? I've seen occasional reports on here of this happening with Nikons.
    As a Test:
    Hold down the option (or alt) key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Create Library'
    Import a few pics into this new, blank library. Is the Problem repeated there?

  • Receiver file adapter creates empty files, Empty-Message Handling SP19

    Hello,
    We have just upgraded the system to SP19.
    One of the new features is that it should be possible to determine how XI messages with an empty main payload are to be handled in the receiver file adapter.
    If the parameter Empty-Message Handling is set to 'Ignore' no file should be created if the main payload is empty. In our case an empty file (size 0 kb) is still created even though the main payload is empty and the flag is set to 'Ignore'.
    Has anybody experienced the same problem?
    //  Best regards  Hans

    This should work:
    Use your own adapter module that parses incoming message and checks if it has any record sets in the document. If it does not have any record sets, then set the message to empty and then give this modified message to File receiver.
    For example, see the example code below:
    Module imports..
    Audit log import..
    DOM imports/SAX imports..
    public ModuleData process(ModuleContext moduleContext, ModuleData inputModuleData) throws ModuleException {
              try {
                   // get the XI message from the environment
                   Message msg = (Message) inputModuleData.getPrincipalData();
                   AuditMessageKey amk = new AuditMessageKey(msg.getMessageId(),AuditDirection.INBOUND);
                   Audit.addAuditLogEntry(amk, AuditLogStatus.SUCCESS,"RemoveRootTag: Module called");
                   XMLPayload payLoad = msg.getDocument();
                   Document doc = parseXmlFile(payLoad.getInputStream());
                   if(doc != null){
                        if(!doc.getDocumentElement().hasChildNodes()){
                             Audit.addAuditLogEntry(amk, AuditLogStatus.SUCCESS, "Document is empty!!");
                             payLoad.setContent("".getBytes());
                             msg.setDocument(payLoad);
                   // provide the XI message for returning
                   inputModuleData.setPrincipalData(msg);
                   } catch (Exception e) {
                   // raise exception, when an error occurred
                   ModuleException me = new ModuleException(e);
                   throw me;
                   // return XI message
              return inputModuleData;
         private Document parseXmlFile(InputStream xmlpayload) {
              try {
                   DocumentBuilderFactory factory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
                   factory.setValidating(false);
                   //        Create the builder and parse the file
                   Document doc = factory.newDocumentBuilder().parse(xmlpayload);
                   return doc;
              } catch (SAXException e) {
              } catch (ParserConfigurationException e) {
              } catch(IOException e){

  • Create empty file

    Hello Experts,
    I have a requirement something like this.
    I have file to file scenario.
    I have multiple files in sender folder coming everyday. I have PI File adapter scheduled at some perticular time to process these files. For each sender file one receiving file is created.
    Now the requirement is, my client wants that once all the files from sender folder processed and create files at receiver end, they want PI to create one Empty file to indicate that all the files are processed.
    Is it possible? If yes then how?
    Thanks,
    Hetal

    Hiiiii,
    Answer for ur quesitons:
    1) Sending side is that within your organization or is it some kind of outside data?
    Ans: Its within our organization.
    2) Your sender channel is that only opened once during the day or at regular intervals?
    Ans: Its open just once in a day but if needed we can open on regular intervals.
    3) What's the aim of creating an empty file?
    Ans: Actually there are around 3000 files coming from Sender and PI is processing them and dropping it at receiver end.
    Now after PI drops the files at receiver end, another process (we have some other process on receiver side which is inside the organization) will start processing those files. But they dont want to be time dependent, what they want is once PI will process and keep all the files on receiver side then PI should drop one empty file on receiver side, so when receiver process will see this empty file, it will understand that PI has processesed all the files so they can start processing those received files.
    Hope i hv cleared your dobts.
    Thanks,
    Hetal

  • Receiver-File-Adatper creates empty files on FTP-Server

    Hi experts,
    I have a problem with my IDOC-to-File-scenario. My Mapping converts IDOCs to XML-files. Then the xml-files should be send to a ftp-server in New York. but only the filename is created on the ftp-server in New York. but without any content.
    At first I tested the scenario with a ftp-server in our company. and it works. the files and the right content were created. so the scenario and the mapping are working correctly.
    Have you any idea what the problem is?
    Thanks and best regrads
    Christopher

    Dont use anonymous login. Please provide user name and password.
    Also go to adapter engine queue. There see the details description of your message. There it will specify which file got created, on which FTP server, in which folder and also how many bytes XI has transferred. If possible let me know these details.
    Also try uploading any other file to FTP.
    For this got to Command prompt.
    1. open (o) IP ADDRESS
    2. User name
    3. Password
    4. go to specified folder
    5. Use PUT command to save the file on FTP server.
    If after all these empty files is getting created then contact your system administrator and tell him to check firewall settings. Because there are few parameters which allows data transfer.
    Because if firewall problem is there then u wont be able to put a file manually on that FTP server.
    Let me know the output.

  • File receiver: Create empty file named "start.txt" at end of process

    Hello,
    When my file adapter finish the generation of file at the receiver server I want to create another empty file at the same directory named "start.txt". The use of that file if for a scheduled task of OS that only starts a process if start.txt file have been created (the process delete that file).
    How can I do that? I've tried with OS command after precessing but that's for the XI OS not the receiver system SO...
    Then I've seen that I can use ftp command but there isn't ftp command to create a file... only to transfer files.

    You can achive this using script.Write a script/bat to creat a file using ftp connection as well in the script and place in xi machine. Using OS command to call the script before the process ends.

  • Solaris 10 creates empty files on one partition

    When I use following on this partition
    echo "This is a text" > /vaults/active/.status/TEST
    the system creates a empty file
    cat /vaults/active/.status/TEST # returns nothing
    The file will be created with 0 bytes.
    When I use another partition all is correct
    echo "This is a text" > /tmp/TEST
    cat /tmp/TEST # returns: This is a text
    What can be the reason for this behaviour? There are no quotas specified for the system.

    Is the /vaults/active/.status/ containing filesystem full? Can you create a directory? Ifso, can you create content in the newly created directory?

    did you refresh FTP (F5) ?
    maybe you're checking wrong ftp server? with the same folders ?
    ups - I thought I doens't create any file...
    as suggested check your mapping as per my blog:

  • Avoiding empty-file creation

    Hi,
    Is there any way to avoid empty file creation on the receiver side? I am using variable-substituton for file naming.
    Thanks,
    Vishal

    Vishal,
    Once I faced a similar issue, a 0kb file though empty file creation "ignore" option was creating empty files.
    Try to avoid empty files creation using
    1. Receiver determination where you can check for required field, and generate target only if it appears
    1. Message mapping by not generating a target structure
    Again, it depends on your requirement on when these empty messages are getting created...
    Can you tell us, on what cases is this empty file is getting created?

  • How to import a text file created in Pages (iWork '08) to Photoshop Elements

    I am totally a novice at working with Photoshop Elements.  I need help.  I want to create my business card in Photoshop Elements with a background image and then a text layer over the background layer.  The logo and text was created in Pages (iWork '08).  Can I import this text file to Photoshop Elements and if so how do I do that?  I cannot create the same logo in Elements unless someone can tell me how to draw a circle with a transparent background so that just the outline of the circle shows and the background comes through.  Thanks for any help you can offer.  I have OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.4 and Photoshop Elements 6.

    In PSE, to draw an empty circle use the elliptical marquee tool and hold down shift while you drag to constrain it to a circle. That will give you an empty selection, then go to Edit>Stroke (outline) selection. A window appears where you can choose the width and color of the stroke.
    However, I'm not understanding why you would want to create your business card in PSE rather than in Pages or equivalent. Is there a special reason for this?
    EDIT As for the text file, it would be simpler just to retype it in PSE, since it can't be very much text. Remember that PSE doesn't do all the fancy things with text that Pages can, although it can do some things (like warping) that Pages can't.
    You could activate the text tool and use copy/paste, but you'll lose most of the formatting.

  • Can I import a swf file (created in FC) into Flash?

    Can I import a swf file (created in FC) into Flash?
    ...also, do you need Flash Player 10 to play these files?

    Just did some testing here, and Flash Professional definitely does not like Catalyst projects. Importing to the stage failed silently (gotta love that), while Import to Library appeared to work - I got a MovieClip in my library. However, the clip is empty. I'd guess it is as Chris said, having to do with the fundamental differences in the Flex framework from the way Flash Pro works.
    As this did spark my curiosity, I decided to give loading the Catalyst-created project into a Flash Pro project at runtime using ActionScript. I was able to at least get the Catalyst content to appear through this method, but the effects (in this case, a simply button with a Rotate3D effect applied) was a mess.
    So the simple answer is "no".

  • After I import a movie file from the camera memory card, Imovie 10.0.1 acts as if the memory card is empty though I know it isn't.... I can't import that file to iMovie again.. is that the way it worksnow?  Thank you, Filippo

    On IMac 10.9  After I import a movie file from the camera memory card to Imovie 10.0.1 it acts as if the memory card is empty though I know it isn't.... I can't import that file to iMovie again.. is that the way it works now?  Anyone know?  Thanks, Filippo

    I would like to know this too. I imported a lot of files, then Imovie crashed. I went back in and they are not in imovie at all.
    I reconnected the camcorder to import again and though they are still on the camcorder, I no longer see them in the available list of files to import. I'm sure there is some sort of simple setting somewhere that reveals all files even if it thinks they are imported.
    Thanks

  • Is the prores file that FCPx creates when importing c300 .mxf files stable/quality enough to then copy to other drives for further use? Are there any quality disadvantages to doing that?

    Im wondering if I can directly copy the prores files fcpx creates when importing c300 .mxf files from the "original media" folder, reimport them for another project to and use them that way. Is there any problem with working that way? I'm doing this bc I want to have an organize finder structure for a client but cant break the c300 card structure to split clips on a card into different "scenes" to make it easier for them to understand what they're looking at. This is all to stay NLE nuetral--we like fcpx but they might want to edit somewhere else and more details in the finder level seems like the best solution? Suggestions on any of that? Thanks.

    Thanks for your response. Are you sure that FCPx is working with .mxf/c300 natively? I thought it was just a background sort of repackaging or transcode into prores that it does without you having a choice? And bc of that, for me, it's sort of a "back end" feeling file: I'm curious if it's bad to get into the package contents folder to copy it over? Not about copying prores in general-- specifically, is the prores created of c300 footage in fcpx more of a fcpx, high quality alias file? Maybe I'm just feeling a little uncomfortable grabbing things from the inside/finder level of fcpx.
