Video saved as just a PICTURE!!! PLEASE HELP

edited July 2016 in Express Support

I exported the video and used the same file name as the video clip i was editing and it saved as a 7 minute mp4 picture! please help I need to somehow recover the original footage


  • I just tried that and yes, it is possible to overwrite it...which surprised me. The first frame is stretched out over the whole video, but no, you can't recover the original. It's gone.

    If you didn't have a backup, do you still have it on the camera's memory card?

  • no...

    @fishinsalt13  If you're on Windows try right clicking the file, select properties then click the "Previous Versions" tab of the window that opens. If a previous version is listed you should be able to restore it.
