How to import video?

Post by Soderlund » Sun Jun 14, 2015 11:10 am

Hi, I use my IPAD to film myself singing... then I want to import this whitout the IPAD-sound to my music in Nuendo. I have tried to convert the video to several formats but is not able to open it because Nuendo tells me that the file is "invalid or not supported" . What am I missing? I thought that Nuendo is capable of reading all the formats..

Please help, Regards Micke S.

I hate to say it, but have you checked with the manual to see that the container type is supported?

And have you made sure the actual codec is installed?

Can you open it in any other program in the Nuendo computer?
Lots of useful stuff......and info on my studio...
at http://www.jayrose.com. Or check my book, now used at most US film schools, at GreatSound.info.
(Nuendo setup: 10+..., Mac 10.13+ on 3.2GHzQuad 8GB, MOTU 2408, Blackmagic Intensity, TC Powercore updated to current OS, MCP plus expander, Steinberg mini control panels, lots of plugins, SoundMiner.)

Hi, What container?
In my manual it's on page 749. The file consists of a container that tells the computer about what data it "contains", along with the actual data. The data is encoded, which means that you need a codec that matches the data. So you could hypothetically have a file format/container that is fine, yet lack the codec to decode the data.

As stated in the manual:
Nuendo manual page 749 wrote:"There are two ways to figure out if Nuendo can play back a certain video file:

•Open the video file with QuickTime 7.1 or higher, because Nuendo uses QuickTime for playing back video files.
•Check the file information of a video file in the Pool. If the information reads “Invalid or not supported file!”, the video file is either corrupt or the format is not supported by the available codecs."
So I'm guessing that checking in Win MediaPlayer and on an Android device won't suffice.

You said you tried (converted?) to MPEG4, and MOV, and they are approved "containers" from what I can see. So if it still doesn't play the question is what codec was used.

"shift+s" to the setup dialog and make sure the frame rate of the project is the same as the video. Just for housekeeping's sake.
