XDCAM Transfer 2.5.1
I have no previews available and the viewer says 'No Media'.
I can import footage if i check the box that says 'Import clips with no installed codecs'.
The resulting imported footage has audio only and the picture is completely white.
I have ten XDCAM EX presets available to me in FCP along with the other XDCAM sequence presets..
I've done my homework but it is still not working!
Issue was finally resolved - i think - by the recent plug in manager update 7.3.1.
I can't be sure as i had been tinkering with so many different things but shortly after the update and a restart, my transfer software displayed previews and FCP recognized the XDAM EX codecs allowing ingest.
Thanks to all who contributed and helped during my day and a half of configuration hell.
