  1. My FMP pro 15 doesn't allow to import ".avi" and ".mkv" files. The error is the files are not the specified file type How to do so?
  2. Thanks GG I found an old version of FMP Advanced 9 This version works fine with smaller files, but crashes on High Sierra if the FP5 files are larger. And I am unable to find my old FMP 11 ... and filemaker doesn't have it at all. Thanks
  3. Hello I find in an old drives some fmp5 files. To open them in FMP18 I need to convert them first to FMP7. I have an old version of FMP7 however each time I install it the app crashes telling me the installer was modified with another version and crashes. I tried to download from the Filemaker site the trial version but I can't find it ... any help? Thanks
  4. Thanks again Fitch and miss Agnes Sorry I made a mistake my first post as I meant to export the video from the container field and name it joining 2 other fields as a title for the exported container field the actual field names are exactly as this: CLIP (container field with a ".mov" suffix) ClipName (text field) Sequence (textfield) The result should be Sequence&ClipName, as the new name for the Container Field (CLIP)
  5. Thanks for your time and reply: My answer will be a bit long and I hope you will have the patience to read it. I am a film maker and I use FILEMAKER as the heart of my editing process. Is a great program and in my job I use it in ways which might be not so common, this includes editing within FMP13 advanced and organising my work in different ways according to each project and step of the project. I can do so as other film software I use generally gives me the opportunity to export files in TAB format, but as they are not database, they don't allow me selections, sorts and more
  6. I'm surte this is quite a simple task ... for someone expert I see I can export Record content using a Variable as the new filename for the exported file. I have more than 1200 records in my db and I hope to export 3 fields using one [fieldname: Title] as a filename. The path for my db is as follows file:/Macintosh HD/Users/Claudio/Documents/Synch Test Copy Copy.fmp12 Thanks a lot
  7. It works perfectly in case the pattern is either KB or GB Hower it doenst work in case the pattern is MB
  8. Thanks for your interest however even following step by step I am unable to create the external function After I paste in New external function the code FMPADV 13 tells me I need to enter the function for: Floor ( Ln ( bytes ) / Ln ( _ratio ) ) It selects the word bytes and I am unable to continue as I am not skilled enough to do it Even if some kind person will help to find the "bytes" I am afraid I will run into some similar or different tasks which I won't know how to solve. Thanks however
  9. Thanks for your interes and time. But .... How do I add it as a custom function to my FMPADV 13? If I use it as a calculation or script FMP tells me it cannot find various fields and I am totally lost Thanks again
  10. In my DB I have a text file which tells me the size of audio and video clips as such 927 KB or 1020 KB and 27.5 MB or 15.26 MB and 2.01 GB or 11,3 GB I used the following suggestion from this forum: Mediasize::MediaSize * If ( PatternCount ( Convert Mediasize::MediaSize ; "GB" ) ; 1024 ; 1 ) but while it works fine with GB it doesnt work with MB or KB Instead of doing a script a did a calculation as such Case ( PatternCount ( Convert Mediasize::MediaSize ; "GB" ) ; Convert Mediasize::MediaSize* 1024; PatternCount ( Convert Mediasize::M
  11. Hi in FMP 13 every time I create a new field I need to go to the layout mode and add it manually I think there is a way to do it automatically ... but I forgot how Would anyone be so kind to refresh my memory .... Thanks a lot
  12. Hello I am using FMP13 and I have a MEDIASIZE field where all the data is something like this: 64.3 MB or 3.96 GB How to write a script which will convert to a regular number this information? As it si I can't sort the various records while converting them as an even number it will be possible Thanks a lot
  13. Thanks LaRetta for your time and suggestions which I will try right now I will explain a bit further the need for those two related tables and so on. I need to synchronise Audio which was recorded on a separate machine from the Camera And explain why I hope to be able to order the Vidoe Audio combo and export them to another tab file. I would be able with a script I still need to think about ot open the files in Quicktime and rename them according to various criteria for the rest of the process. In Filemaker I did amazing stuff including video editing just using the script
