Log And Transfer FCP7 / EX1R

Hi !

Does transfering ex1R with log and transfer on FCP7 made a new encoding of the video and then make a lower quality ?

My timeline is set to prores422 HQ and i have clips from EX1R and 7D.

When i use log and transfer from 7D, the clips goes in prores422hq

When i use log and transfer from EX1R the clips stays in XDCAm HD (it is the same compression as the native clips ?)

Thanks !

No. it doesn't make a new encoding.

Yes it's the same compression. Both XDCAM Transfer Tool and Log and Capture Tool work the same way. All they do is use the same video clip and re-wrap it in a different "container" that Quicktime and FCP understand. To over-simplify, it's the same present in a different box and wrapping paper. FCP likes blue paper and Avid likes grey (I think). :-)
