Re: Split files?

Any video editor, like Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere.

Re: Split files?

I see the same problem. But the video DOES advance on the last part of the file, so trimming would leave a video jump.

 

And the audio mute is on the last 1.5 frames, making it hard/impossible to trim completely.

 

This is at 60fps .MP4 highest bit rate.

 

Is there a fix for this for the G40?

 

I shoot church service each week, so there's 4 of these dropouts every week.

 

And my memory card is very fast, 128GB 95 mb/sec U3 class 10.

 

I take the card out and transfer from it for fastest transfer.

Re: Split files?

The reference to the Pixela software is faulty in this case - the camera ID # will not let you download the software for a Canon R800. I tried every option using the SN on the bottom of the camers, and it always gives an error.

Re: Split files?

Bansaw is correct. Unless there is a way to force the camera to record continuously, you will get  ca. 4 gb files, and when you try to assemble them into one file, there is a small dead space, ca. 1 frame, that is clearly audible. For a classical music recording this means anywhere between 1/16th and 1/4 note dropout, clearly unacceptable. Overlapping the files in a video editor leaves a conductor looking herky-jerky, let alone the poor musicians!

Re: Split files?

Thanks for posting I am canceling my R700 order - as this is unacceptable. 

Cannon T/S just told me zero drop outs, I seen another blog say the same things. 

I can understand he file rollover but not data loss. And Its not documented in the manual 

and they lie about it. 

 

This is the difference from Consumer to Pro I guess. 

 

Rather sad. 

 

I might be looking at Sony Panasonic next.

Re: Split files?

Wow I almost bought a R700 - just canceled my order after reading these file rollover issues. Canon told me zero drop outs too. He lied.

This, unfortunately, is the limitation of the FAT file system used on so many cameras. DLSRs have a limitation of 30mins max in HD but not in 4k. For long recordings you should possibly look at using an external recorder which has no file size or time limitations. There is the Blackmagic Video Assist and also the Atomos range which can take a clean HDMI feed from the camera.

Re: Split files?

Thank you for the reply.  I understand that the File system has to split and roll over to the next file, no issues there if my one hour recording is 2 files or 10 files. But the Camera CPU and Hardware should have enough buffering to prevent data loss as the CCD images and Audio are still streaming in real time. Yes I thought of another box to record, but sort of defeats the purpose of the camcorder!!  We are a small church on a limited budget, I think canon is out. I'm now looking at a Sony CX550V do you know anything about that?

 

Tnx, Ed

Re: Split files?

Can anyone tell me the following: Is there a way to change the recording resolution to extend the length of recording to 2 hrs? What setting would allow me to get a solid take of that length without splitting? Thanks in advance.

Re: Split files? 2hr

 

To record vodeo for 2 hours (120 mintues or 7200 seconds ) the max bit rate would be 

 

4gb meaning

 

4096 MB /  7200  = .5688 

 

convert bits to bytes 10x seem to be the conversion from expermentation 

on my Nikon D7100 Kodak ZX5 and Panasonic FZ200 

I dont owhn a canon video camera

 

so "I Think" the answer is  5.688 mbs 

 

Cross checking it with Canon specs 

 

from https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/camcorders/consumer/vixia/vixia-hf...

 

32GB SD Memory Card in MP4*:
4 Mbps (1280 x 720)**: 17 hrs. 20 min.
17 Mbps (1920 x 1080)**: 4 hrs. 10 min.
24 Mbps (1920 x 1080)**: 2 hrs. 55 min.
35 Mbps (1920 x 1080)**: 2 hrs.

 

32GB is 8 x your 4GB limit (one file max size we hope) 

or take the  35Mbps / 8 = 4.375 Mbps 

 

in any case there is no 5 Mbps recording rate only a  

4 Mbps (1280 x 720)**: 17 hrs. 20 min.

 

17 hours 20 minutes is   17*60 + 20 = 1040 Minutes 

1040 / 8 = 130 minutes or 2 hours and 10 minutes 

when using the 

4 Mbps (1280 x 720)**: 17 hrs. 20 min.

mode

 

Any one want to confirm my math?
