  • How best to use XDCAM EX footage already on-disk ?

    Given footage from a Sony XDCAM EX on hard disk (only, no longer present on the camera), in both its original form (BPAV) and the "MXF for NLEs") previously generated by Sony ClipBrowser (prior to the existence of MC3.5), what is the best way to make use of it in an Avid Sequence? I tried importing... (read more)

  • Re: XDCAM EX what resolution?

    Close but not quite - Using the Avid AAF method from ClipBrowser you get two specific output for each clip - the first is a set of OP Atom MXF files that Avid can read natively, the second in an AAF file that contains no essence, only the metadata. You need to set the OPAtom folder to be one of Avid's... (read more)

  • Mixing P2 & XDCAM EX in one doc? Need advice

    Hello, We are in production on a doc feature which is being shot over many months in different countries and by different crews. So far we shot with the Sony EX-1 & EX-3 cameras and we're very happy with the results and the workflow. File format is XDCAM EX 35Mbits (1080p/23.976). Been able to... (read more)

  • Re: Motion effects won't render!

    I equally had this problem with XDCAM EX and HD footage on an MC 3.5.4 / OS 10.5.7 - media consolidated from AMA volumes. The solution for me was to make sure that under Settings/Render an intraframe codec was selected (DNxHD) and the 'Same as source' was deselected - no need to transcode. Janusz (read more)

  • writeback to SxS cards

    I am using MC 3.5.1 on Macbook Pro (version 10.5.7) and Clipbrowser version 2.0. No problems bringing in 1080i/50 PAL material from an SxS card in the slot on the Mac. However, once I have edited my news-story, I would like to copy/write/export it back to the SxS card in a format that the XDCAM EX can... (read more)

  • Re: XD CAM EX1 HELP

    Thanks for that. So here's the next and real issue: I've upgraded to 3.5, got it running. I understood that the new version is supposed to have "end to end" support for XDCAM, which will make importing the clips easy as drag and drop. Apparently not. Is there a tutorial or workflow...

  • PMW EX Cam mixed with Avid...

    Hi, Have many people used the EX camera for projects in Avid? I'm trying it out at the moment and would love to open up discussions about it. We're using Avid Media Composer, EditShare and Sony EX Clip Browser to convert it to an MXF file to then import into avid. Currently it takes about 1/2... (read more)

    Hey Guys, Just received an external drive with XDCAM EX1 footage from a shoot. First XDCAM edit. Am preparing my workflow. I've got a few basic things to take care of first: got to upgrade to MC 3.5 (so I have to upgrade my OS to Leopard first) - and I'm planning on doing that. But I was looking... (read more)
