Sony Content Browser 2 doesn't work with new MAC OS 10.12.4 update....Update

Hello all....

Any update on this issue? I still use Content Browser to transcode raw BPAV files into .mov for Final Cut Pro. But I do need to update my Mac, but I don't want to loose the use of CB2, as I have paid for it.

Any feedback would be helpful....

many thanks...

Catalyst Browse is compatible with Sierra (10.12.x) so why would you need Content Browser?

Unless I'm missing the feature someplace (I looked), Catalyst Browse doesn't allow copying files from multiple cards into a single folder. It throws an error saying there's already video in the folder. It's a fundamental capability of Content Browser to wrangle your footage from multiple SxS cards into a folder on your workstation.

UPDATE: It's a bug in Catalyst Browse. As we all know, XDCAM creates the BPAV folder structure for everything. You have to drag/drop the second file into the BPAV folder (unlike Content Browser that's smart enough to understand the XDCAN folder structure).

The bug is that sometimes, after dragging the first file into a new folder, Catalyst Browse does not let you un-twist the new folder to reveal the BPAV sub folder. I had to quit and reopen CB in order to access the BPAV folder. YMMV

I think you have to choose whether to keep Content Browser and your older OS, or upgrade and try EditReady or Catalyst Browse.

OK guys....I still have some clients that want me to shoot on 35mbps....which I do on the sxs cards....then I have to convert these files to .mov for FCP10....I use Content Browser for this purpose and it has served me well over the years.

So, I am not that familiar with Catalyst Browse....I do have it...

so how do I convert BPAV files to normal .mov?


any help would be nice...as I can't get the Sony Help Desk in New Jersey to call me back....

Many thanks...........
