Saw a Demo Today of the MXF4QT package from Spericho for FCP7.
We had the best results after polling the files ( Blazingly fast BTW ) using the AVCINTRA 100 footage on a ProRes HQ timline. In fact we stacked five layers of mixed footage from XDCAM EX in 1080 and 720 and DVCPRO100 on that timeline in Realtime with no render. No Trans coding or re wrapping?
I'm Sold on the MXF4QT suite.
My attention turned to harvesting the Cards from the Camera to feed the beast that goes this hard! It occurred to me that an older Intel PCIE Tower could house two PC-35 card readers giving me access to up to Ten P2 cards @ one time. Handy on a multicam set thats going all day.
Can I use two PC-35 card readers in one tower with a remaining slot for the target Drive?
Will the tower cope with the data of two esata streams? Will five cards in the slots max out the esata stream b4 the tower anyway? Shot Put Pro will probably slow things down a little I guess.
Whats the oldest tower I can use?
