Message "searching for movie data in file **.jpg" ??

Postby schooloffish » Mon Jul 15, 2013 11:21 pm

Hi all. I have a problem now with Cineform that is apparently well-known in FCP and I-Movie according to all the forums I have been reading. When I try to open Cineform, it comes up with the message 'searching for movie data in file G0010001.JPG.' When I hit stop it pauses for a while and then goes to G0010002.JPG. I can't get past that to use the software. I can only forcequit. I have tried renaming a MP4 file with the one it is looking for as a JPG and an MP4. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling. I have used Cineform quite a bit in the past without any problems. The only thing I can think of that I did different is that I allowed I-Photo to launch as a default when the Hero 3 was plugged in and this time actually downloaded pics and movies into that and then opened a movie from I-Photo. (I wanted to see if it stuttered when I played). When I then went on to open Cineform, I found this problem. I've since deleted all of those particular files that I downloaded in case they were corrupt but still the same. Has anyone experienced a similar problem and found a fix? Please keep any answers dumbed down to Neanderthal level please. Thanks.

Courtesy of tgrizzle73 and Cineform support, a solution came through:

"Hey Schoolofish,

I finally got a response from cineform studio support and this is what they told me to do:

'Delete the GoPro Projects folder in your documents folder. Then try opening Studio again and let me know if it still does not work.'

I did this and it opened right up and works... just thought I would share this with you."

It worked for me too. Relief

I'm having this same problem on my mac. However deleting the project directory didn't help. I've also tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling, but obviously I am missing a preference file somewhere as Cineform keeps searching for old JPG files each time it starts up.

Anybody know how to do a complete clean uninstall in Max OSX?

I was able to get rid of my similar annoying Searching for movie data in file... message by:
    force quit GoPro Studio
    open my user home directory library/Preferences folder
    move (or trash) the file: com.gopro.GoPro-Studio.plist
    restart GoPro Studio

I was prompted to go through the GoPro Studio tutorial again as if I had just installed GoPro Studio for the first time but that was easy to cancel.
I hope this helps someone.

PS. my computer specs: Mac OS X 10.6.8 GoPro Studio version 2.0.1 If your computer OS or version of GoPro Studio is different the above may not work for you.
