Accessing Media Problem
I am using Hitfilm Express 12,
A good while ago, I took some video using my camcorder and also my camera using the same card swapped between the two devices.
It appeared that I could only see the media taken when replayed on the device that took the video when viewed on the devices.
When later I put the memory card into the pc to view the images and put them into files, the pc could not see anything.
A young lad at work had a look at the issue and loaded an app onto the pc called VLC media player, and then we could see the media previously not viewable.
All was good.
Now I want to use the media mentioned in a Hitfilm project.
I can put the memory card into the pc, create a new folder, copy and paste the files into the new folder and then view the content on the pc, ( with the memory card now removed).
When in Hitfilm, I go to the folder to get the media and import it into the project, I can see the individual media clips, but when I click on them to put them into Hitfilm, they just start playing on my pc screen and do not go into Hitfilm.
If I minimise the open file and go to the file name to use in Hitfilm, I simply get a statement saying there is nothing in the file, but minimise Hitfilm, go back to the file and it can again be viewed, so the content is there, but a missmatch must be preventing Hitfilm from seeing it.
Is there something like the VLC media player that can be used alongside Hitfilm so that the media can be brought into the project I was wondering.
Thanks for reading, Any thoughts welcome.
