Card reading newbie: why not record .movs, why complicated BPAV folders?
on Mar 6, 2016 at 6:30:21 am

Our lives should be getting simpler with better technology so why don't cameras just record .movs to cards? With these BPAV folders, I have to download third party software to get the footage into any editing system, I get constant errors, the file names are long number sequences and each clip creates its own bulky folder. I know I must be missing something: why aren't these modern card based cameras making things easier on us by recording .movs that we can simply drag over?

why .mov?

mov based on old 32bit quicktime that's so antiquated compared to more modern codecs. if anything you should be asking why not mxf, dnxhd, dnxhr, etc.,

Okay. Why not MXF?

To me the pain is editing FS7 footage. Resolve is to slow to properly edit the footage, so I choose FCP X.
FCPX is fast, but transcripts all the files to movs. Fine.
When I want to go to grading I can transfer the edit to resolve, but resolve can't read the movs.

I am still looking for the proper workflow.
