Problem Viewing XDCAM proxies
on Oct 14, 2010 at 5:55:10 pm

I have been sent some XDCAM proxies that came in as .mov files. I need to know how to view or convert them to a viewable quicktime file, or something similar. When I play them in quicktime I get perfect audio, but no picture. I downloaded XDCAM transfer, but it said I was missing codecs and wouldn't even let me select the files. I don't have Final Cut so that may be part of the problem. Is there a way I can view or convert these so that I can load them into Avid.

Hi Nate,

Without FCP you won't be able to view the files in QuickTime. I would try downloading the trial version of Calibrated Software's MXF component; I believe that has support for the MPEG4 Proxy Codec.

Thanks Ian
I'll give that a try. I do have an older version of Final Cut Express, but as I understand it, it needs to be Final Cut Pro. Is that correct?

Hi Nate,

Yes, my guess is Express will not work with the proxies either as Apple only puts the Pro codecs in Final Cut Pro..
