after importing the clips from my ex3 through XDCAM transfer I've noticed that a short part of the clip is missing. I shoot continuously for 2.5h and ended up with 3 files, two of which don't connect seamlessly. The timecode in/out of all 3 clips align perfectly though. Does anyone have an idea of what could've happened? I assume nothing can be done at this stage anymore, but I would love to be proven wrong, since it's an important file
Was the original card formatted to FAT? It has a maximum size of 4gb's a file or about 20min of footage so you may have ended up with split clip (a symbol should appear to denote that). If you import directly off the card via XDCAM Browser, or clipbrowser rather than transfer as that rewraps the files to a .mov rather therefore preserving the original file structure then hopefully everything you shot should appear as one file.
