Problems when exporting/transcoding DV AVI files - Render/transcode stalls
I opened several old project containing DV AVI PAL footage. I noticed that all project with DV AVI PAL has problems when exporting from AME 14/15/22 and Premiere Pro.
The export (or transcode) stalls, continues, stalls, continues, etc, etc until it´s done. This does not happen with another source codec such as Blackmagic Design Motion-JPEG or Prores.
An easy way to reproduce:
1. Open Premiere Pro and create a DV PAL 4:3 timeline.
2. Create and add Bars and Tone and place it on the timeline
3. Make the Bars and Tone 1 hour long
4. Export to AVI > PAL DV
- Launch AME and import the file you just created
- Set the format to QuickTime and choose the Apple ProRes LT Preset
- Start the Queue.
The transcode process will start only to stop completely after a couple of seconds. Note that the Elapsed time will stop counting as well. After a couple of seconds AME will continue and the Elapsed time will "jump forward". This will repeat itself until the file is transcoded.
As a test, do the same thing for the file that you now created, iow the ProRes file. This time the encode will not stop.
DV AVI PAL files=Encoding stalls several times.
ProRes files=Encoding never stalls.
I have seen AME stall for up to 30 seconds.
This is not a heating issue/disk issue since i can transcode Blackmagic Design Motion-JPEG DV files to ProRes for an hour without any stall
