    for frame fixing you can try this tool:

    unfortunately they don't sell single user licenses anymore, but if you know where to look I'm sure you can find a "free" version.

      K Stark, I have just encountered my first dropped frame issue with BMPCC, searched the web and was referred to your post in this thread by some colleagues. Out of everything I have looked through online, you seem to have the most in depth understanding of how this stuff works (I'm mainly just a shooter and not a post expert by any means). I hope you have the time, and are willing to help me out if possible. Here's my situation:

      I shot an interview using a BMPCC (RAW), unfortunately, using the wrong choice of SD card. I ended up with dropped frames.

      The BMPCC footage was shot as one clip (no stop-start in recording). However, I ended up with the interview split into MANY separate clips which seem to be divided by dropped frames. My Audio track however (internally recorded in BMPCC) is all in one piece. I can easily assemble my video footage in the right order but my main issue is that my footage grows more and more out of sync with my audio track as it goes on. What is really confusing is that my footage (the individual clips placed in sequential order) run LONGER than my audio track! I would think if I dropped frames in Video, but my Audio kept recording (which seem to be the case), I would end up with a SHORTER Video track!

      I also have audio recorded externally, but in order to sync the footage with that, I first need to sync my footage with the internal audio (I use PluralEyes).

      1) Do you have any idea if/how I can possibly sync my many little clips with the internally recorded audio track? Since I have a B-cam, the dropped frames in themselves are not an issue (I don't need to recreate them) as long as I can somehow sync my damaged video and audio.

      2) Would you have any idea why my audio track be SHORTER than my video track?

      Sorry about the long essay, just trying to be clear.

      I would really really appreciate if you could share your expertise and help me out if you can.

      Cheers!

        I had pulled it down and then put it back up last December for someone. I'll try to send the new link when I get home tonight.
        This site is screwing up the link so I cant copy it from the old PM.
        PM me if I forgot.
        thanks

                This is what pops up when I START the program. When I click Continue on the error box nothing happens. If I attempt to START the program again after clicking continue, the Errorbox pops up again...
                The footage in one folder, in form of DNGs... Am I doing something wrong?

                      For the sake of those who might stumble upon this thread in search of cure for the broken up footage due to dropped frames:

                      Keith very kindly adjusted his program and it worked miraculously. It took literally 2 TWO SECONDS to process around 40 minutes of RAW footage, after which my RAW DNGs open in Resolve as one healthy sequence (which was initially broken up into many many clips due to dropped frames), fully in sync with audio!!!

                        Keith is a straight up genius and not only because of his awesome avatar.

                        Putting this little baby in my 'important software' archive, hopefully I never have to use it, but knowing it's there... yeah, feels good man.

                        Thanks Keith!

                        Bro hug.

                              Hi,

                              I'm getting a error like" File ..._00007.dng allready exists". Any ideas?


                              //edit: figured out that Jethro doesn't like exFat formatted drives too much works fine when I moved files to NTFS drive...

                                humm, I never tested it like that. I assume people would always move the files to a system drive first. Maybe dot net has an issue with ex-fat.
                                anyway, I would always work off of a copy of the files, not the source footage directly on the cards.

                                thanks
