    Philip,

    I had a similar issue a few days ago on set before a shoot. I read the instructions and followed them to the letter and had the same result you did. NO FILE etc...
    Until I opened the .TXT file that was created by the camera on the SD card per the instructions and noticed the discrepency. If you open the .TXT file your camera created, on the second line you'll notice HVX200x where x=a letter specific to your camera. In my case it was "T" for some reason. I simply opened the scene files I got from the Panasonic website and changed the suffix letter to match the one my camera provided which was a "T".

    If you open up the .TXT files from Panny you'll notice that all the files are "HVX200P" except the files you are having issues with (VELVET, MUSIC1, PUNCHY) which are "HVX200A". You can simply change the A to P and see if that works or take my first suggestion and change the letter to the same letter your camera created, which might very well have been "P" seeing as the other scene files worked.

    I hope that helps. I wish the Panasonic site was clearer about that little detail. I lost an hour on set trying to figure out why my scene files wouldn't load!!!

    Ryan,
    Thank you for figuring that out! You saved me a lot more time that I would've spent trying to figure out what was different about those 3 files!
    On another note, not that I have the camera yet, but does anyone know if these files can be converted for use in the HMC150?

    I have HPX500 and I put all scene files to a scene file dial. In SD card I created three files called SCENE1.TXT, SCENE2.TXT, SCENE3.TXT. Each one consist six settings (F1-F6). In SCENE1.TXT I have changed: TITLE:MYOWN (you can name it like you want - only 8 characters and big fonts!) , <F1> is the same (DIGINEG) <F2> characters I have changed: there are items from <F1> of NATURAL (you can name it like you want...), <F3> is changed by <F1> of OLDPHOTO and <F4-F6> in the same way.

    In SCENE2.TXT and SCENE3.TXT I have put others scene files from http://www.panasonic.com/business/pr...p?model=HPX500
    After saving changes on SD card I put SD card into my camera slot and in menu: CARD FUNCTIONS>SCENE FILE I have four names of the scene files: first - MYOWN, second - name of TITTLE: in SCENE2.TXT, third - name of TITTLE: in SCENE3.TXT. I choose one of these to load into my camera. If I choose first - MYOWN, I have immediately my favourite six scene files by rotating the scene file dial on the camera.
    Quick, easy and very usefull! I do not need another "the same scene files" in scene file dial with different frame rate like it is in panasonic.com site. For me is much more important "my own favourite" six scene files I can have immediately.
    It works!!!
    I hope it helps to someone...

    Hi,

    We started the scene files this way but, I chose to have all the same because I have had too many phone calls form customers that had inadvertently changed the scene file dial and were wondering if there was an easy fix. So while this method works for you, be aware that it isn't always the best solution.

    The way they are now is more like the bigger cameras: You load one look at a time, not six.


    Best,

    Thanks Jan,
    I will have a look on it... Maybe someone else has more experiences with six different scene files in the scene file dial on a camera...?

    me i think having 6 same scenes is just not logical, you can always easily change the framerate, i will use east film's solution to fit all scene files, seems to be better solution.

    Does anyone else think that the DIGINEG scene file is very, very noisy? I think almost unusably noisy!

    Might anyone have any scene file settings they could suggest for getting the most filmic look with the DVX100? I'll be shooting outside. I know that they're situation-specific and will most likely need tweaking, but I'm looking for something I can start with as a base that folks have had success with. Thanks very much for your time!
