Sanyo AVC/H.264 Conversion/import problems

By aquaent ·
I'm demo'ing Total Video Converter and I'm running into the same problem I've encountered with several other converters.

Ultimately, I'm trying to import a Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD1000EX HiDef file (mpeg-4 AVC/H.264) into my Avid editing software. Avid rejects these ".mp4" files.

Total Video Converter "crashes" when trying to convert these files into, .mov, .avi and .mp4 It creates a file in the destination that is only 36 bytes and is not recognized by any player - obviously.

The native Sanyo files play perfectly in "Nero Show Time 3" which shipped with the camera.

Any ideas? Suggestions?

(HP workstation 4400, duo core 3.0, 4 gig ram)

Thanks for your time and efforts.

Cheers, Mark

Sad news direct from Sanyo

by aquaent In reply to Try these out..

I received word direct from Sanyo's tech dept. that thier 1080i h.264 is not Quicktime compatible. I'll try your recommended conversion softwares, but I'm doubtful of success. Sanyo's 720p30 and 720p60 (h.264) work well with all my current conversion softwares and import directly into Avid editing software. I have to find a "workaround" for the material already shot in 1080i however.
