Re: Split files?




Well I think you pinpointed the differences and ruled out the FS and cards sizes. Nice specific answers, thank you. 


I see it as an advantage having one larger file vs smaller files. There always seen to be some overhead in switching files and

a few dropped frames. So I think this is better. My Opinion.  I guess a phone call to Canon will let you know what their intent was.


As a retired Software Engineer, we always did think that managers never understood the how and whys off.

So don't be surprised if you get same vague answer form Canon !


I guess you can put in a FAT32 (not exFAT) and see it it's smart enought to roll over into the next file, or will it just stop? 


I guess I wasnt much help, but you helped me understand the problem much more, thanks for that!

Hi, eugenepsantos, to merge the splitted files together, you can try Joyoshare Video Joiner. It would help you.

My issue is not really with the video split but rather the audio. I record my music shows which last from 60 to 90 minutes. The camera separates the files into about 5 or six smaller files and when I attempt to join them together in Sony Vegas 17, there is always an audio drop in the middle of a song due to the sparation. This is very frustratining and even a video joiner program can't fix the dropped audio. My camera is a Canon Vixia HF R300.

Re: Split files?

Try a different joiner program. I use fjoiner.exe but there are a couple of others around too.
