Convert AVI clip to MP4

Issue = if you have an old AVI clip, then topaz will not render it to an MP4. I have an 640X480i inrterlaced at 29.97 fps. Audio is MPEG, 224kb/sec and 48khz. it will act like it is working then at the end it won’t make the file. Upon experimenting, this might be because the AUDIO MODE was set to COPY. It I change it to CONVERT then it seems to work.

You can reproduce this by merely reading what I wrote and doing it.

This is a defect in TOPAZ. If it is the audio that cannot be copied into an MP4, then why does the software not way you can’t render that and or automatically force the audio selection to only be CONVERT?

Since this is a major source of the video clips folks want to r-render up to 1080p, and that buy topaz, I am scratching my head why the managers at Topaz have not tested their product? Will this be fixed?

Firstly you posted in the wrong group and it’s not a bug.

MP1/2 is is over 26 years old and considered obsolete, heck not a single web browser supports it.

You now know not to copy so just convert when using those kinds of source.
