BIG MLV FILE PROBLEM
« on: October 23, 2015, 08:01:27 PM »
Hi,

I have a big mlv file spanned over 10 different files.

I've tried to convert using Rawmagic, MLVF and MLRAWViiewer without success. Other files are converting ok, but this one is not. In the MLRAWVIEWER, it only shows a black screen. Can't do a thing, in rawmagic, it crashes the app.

There is probably a topic for this in the forum, can't find a solution though.

Can someone please help me?

Hola Sebastian

Are you using PC or Mac?

Try MLFVS to convert your footage if you use OSX. I'm not using PC.
And in Resolve timeline put the files converted. Maybe you lost a couple of frames in between.

Next time use exfat format for your card.

Agreed. ExFAT is such a life-saver!

@sebastienguerra01 , Are you trying to exact of the Memory Card or locally of the HD ?
What Camera did they come from ?
You may have a corrupt header file , did the camera crash, lockup, drop frames or did you record until the card was full?
You can join all the spanning file together in terminal though Command line input
Have a look at this Post Split RAW File - Mac it will apply to .MLV as will as .Raw Also checkout this post about repairing Corrupted clip. Anything I can try? 
Look like there support for MAC & PC there.
Hope that helps

Edit: Did you try to use mlv_dump , it just exports DNG not Cdng's thou
