I'm not sure what I am doing wrong, but for some reason I can't get an EVT file to be created when I import a MPG into DVArchive.

I get the NDX, XLM and MPG files but missing the EVT. How does this get created? I'm using ReVue to generate the files (I think with the RTVTools)

you want to process the MPG with rtvedit to create the EVT file.

do I have to run this seperately via the command line? I thought I could do this all within ReVue by telling it where the RTVTOOLS files are located.

i've never done it from the command line. I thought ReVue handled all that.

If I only have a raw .mpg file, how does on generate the associated files for the Replay 55xx ? The readme for RTVTools doesn't clearly indicate the format for RTVEDIT - at least I can't figure out what its expecting as input.

actually, my mistake.. if all you have is the raw mpg, you can use rtvconvert to generate the ndx and evt file, then import those files into DVA.

from the command line, just type:
Code:
rtvconvert source.mpg target.mpg

just make sure you either copy the rtvconvert.exe to the same location as the mpg, or set a path, or you should be able to use the absolute path in the statement above...such as:
Code:
rtvconvert d:\folder1\folder2\source.mpg d:\folder3\target.mpg

I did manage to get it to generate the new mpg, evt, and ndx using ReVue. I guess the xml file is only created when I actually import into DVArchive.

It still ddin't work. I'm guessing there is a problem with my original mpg file.

When I used rtvconvert as you suggested, the mpg file dies at about 18MB, and it displays an error message Unsupported Audio encoding must be MPEG -1 Layer II

When I used reVue it died at about 1GB.

I guess I'll have to play around with some other mpegs to see if its the file I'm using.

Thanks for the info..

that is correct...it is DVA that creates the XML once the mpg, ndx, and evt file are imported.
