I need some help troubleshooting. I finished a project and went to export the final version, but AME kept stopping. I would have to force quit. If I tried in Premiere, I get “Error Compiling Movie: Error Unknown” part of the way through.

Some of the .mov files in the sequence showed up as offline after I restarted. Tried again and they showed up as green.

I switched over to my Macbook to see if it was the system. Now the .mov files are showing/playing fine, but I’m still getting the export hang and error.

I’ve tried removing all effects. Exporting XML and importing. Deleting some files from the sequence. I can’t seem to find any way to narrow down what’s causing all this.

I was trying to encode a project to mpeg-2 DVD yesterday, when I repeatedly received the message “Error compiling movie. Unknown error.” I had had this happen before and I can’t remember what hoops I jumped through to fix it. But yesterday, I found a simple solution that may work for someone else in the future should they ever search for this problem in our forum.

The problem turned out to be with some .wmv files mixed in with all the other .avi files I was using. And the solution was to right-click on the .wmv clips in the project bin, choose “modify,” then choose “interpret footage. From there, I changed the frame rate choice from “Use frame rate from file” (which was 30.00) to “Assume this frame rate” and entered a value of 29.97. Voila! Everything rendered without a hitch!

“I have purchased the Sony HXR-MC2000E Camcorder, it records MTS videos, when I import the recordings to Final Cut Pro I always got problems, can you give me some suggestions to help me import Sony MC2000E MTS clips to FCP?”

We found that most of the problems lie within the AVCHD MTS compatibility with Final Cut Pro, the reason that you can’t successfully ingest those recorded AVCHD footages from Sony HXR-MC2000E to Final Cut Pro is limited by the FCP itself. AVCHD is a very non-standard format and it’s unsupported in FCP 6/7 even the latest FCP X, so they have to be converted into ProRes MOV. Obviously, we need to get some help from a Sony AVCHD Converter.

The Mac Sony MTS to ProRes Converter is such a powerful MTS/M2TS to Apple ProRes converter program which works well by allowing you to convert MTS files from Sony MC2000E to Final Cut Pro editable format on Mac.
