XDCAM Transfer Software: No Codec?
on Sep 5, 2006 at 6:24:11 pm

I'm trying to use the XDCAM Transfer Utility to import some XDCAM footage. I can view the proxies just fine, but when I try to add them to the import list, I get an error that says "The files that you have selected are not supported by the codecs on this system." Can anyone suggest a fix? They were shot on an XDCAM F350 at 23.98, SP(25 Mbps CBR) Non-drop frame Timecode, 4 channel audio AES-3. I am using verion 1.040 of the transfer software.

Thanks for you help!

Ok, found it. There's a Pro-Application Support update which solved the problem. Sorry to bother everyone!

I reiterated the necessity for having all the software updates to FCP Studio today, if you want to work with XDCam HD Transfer software. The PDF manual has specific information on how you should have your settings, especially for playout, mainly having dual mono on audio tracks. I captured outside of FCP when I had dupilicate clips show up in the bin, just setting the cache location in Transfer Preferences manually for each XDCam HD disk I inserted in the P70 deck. An Apple rep I spoke to didn't have any info on a duplicate clip bug, so it's important that anyone using the XDCam HD Transfer software give Apple and Sony feedback.

Re: XDCAM Transfer Software: No Codec? IBC Update!!!!

Reports out of IBC indicate that Final Cut Pro 5.1.2 will be released this month, supporting XDCam HD bit rates 18 and 35 mbit!!! Will be a free software update...

Also...

JVC 24p from GY-HD100 and higher cameras in HDV
Canon 24f support for XD H1, and maybe the two newer Canon cameras

One report said FXPlug is supported now. That will be huge.

This was a bug in FCP, that Apple described here: "Final Cut Pro 5: Unexpectedly quits after importing XDCAM Clips" http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=304033. It has been fixed in the FCP 5.1.2 update.
