Important RAW video not recognized, battery died.
« on: July 08, 2016, 08:26:02 PM »
So that's not new but nobody got an answer. I can't open one RAW file spanning a lot of .Rxx. I've understood that in the raw.rec module that I'm using (a nightly a few weeks old) the informations that give you the possibility to handle the file are written at the end of the recording process so if the battery dies they're not recorded. This happened a couple of times to me but this night it was on an important interview and I also got a backup.raw file, maybe because the card was almost full and I stopped using it?

Anyway, I really really hope that there's a way to recover it, right? :(
Promise that when MLV Lite will be stable I'll switch immediatelly.

P.S. I've tried searching for this header/footer but I can't manage to find anything.

Copy the header from another video with the same resolution, and adjust the frame count in a hex editor.

yeyyy I did it! Thanks a lot. I don't know why I didn't find those topics with the search box, I really tried.

Waiting for MLV Lite more than ever. And of course a new developer for MlRawViewer. Christmas.
