Bill MarcellusMXF necessary?
by on Jul 6, 2006 at 3:37:02 pm

We are shooting our first project on the HVX-200 and will be editing in FCP. Our initial workflow is P2 card to P2 Store. From P2 store copying files through a MacBook Pro to an external Firewire drive for archiving and for transfer to the editing suite. Then checking the footage on the laptop in FCP. Ultimately transferring the footage to a RAID for editing.

Yesterday we were advised that since we are editing in FCP there is no benefit to archiving the MXF folders but only need to archive the QTs generated upon import into FCP. Then I log on here last night and see that Jan has advised keeping the MXF data? One other point is that we are editing 10 hours of finished program material and are shooting in 24Pn.

We are confused (nothing new there!). Jan, can you explain the benefits of keeping the MXF data- or the pitfalls of NOT keeping the data?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Bill Marcellus
