    Import or relink XDCAM

    Could someone tell me why Avid always skip the settings when you import an XDCAM HD codec? I mean there is always a way to work around but, when you have to batch some files it's always a bit awkward. Or maybe I'm just missing something in the settings?

    For example, I've got an interlaced project and one of our assistance ingested two discs as progressive. It would be much easier if I could batch this directly in the right format. Now I have to relink, transcode and relink again to bring the original master clips up to DNxHD 50i.

    I know avid does this but, I didn't fount some information about why.

    One reason Avid might ignore your Media Creation settings for XDCam HD is that it is an Avid Native codec. If you are doing a "legacy Import" and your project frame size and framerate match the file and you are set to import legal levels, Avid will Fast Import just rewrapping the XDCam codec in MXF OP Atom.

    If you Link / Consolidate you will also get the XDCam codec. If you Link / Transcode you can get the codec of choice.

    Thank you, this is a piece of really helpful information. It´s still a bit confusing there is no option to import this directly to a bigger codec. But it's nice to understand why Avid is doing this. :)
