Spanned clips

Hi

Ive seen quite a few comments on various forums about problems with spanned clips.Most do seem to be human error,and or wrong software.

Anyway my question.. is it better to avoid spanned clips if at all possible.. or given everyone knows what their doing.. its not a problem at all.. ?

Any standard procedure..

Thanks

They shouldn't be a problem as long as all info is in tact, and by all info, I mean the full card structure, and really the single most important part after having all the video and audio essence, is that little XML file. Those direct the program to where the other part(s) of the span is/are.

Nothing really.. iam not an editor.. but just reading up on P2 it seemed a common problem,issue .. and i have had directors ask me to,if possible not shoot from one card to another.. obviously they have had some problems or heard about them as i have ..

Although it does to be human error,or ignorance at the root of these ingest problems..

Hmm. It can only be an issue if all the data is not present, but that would be due to human error as you mentioned. If the span is for whatever reason missing, it's not really a big deal, you just won't have all the data. If the span is found later, you just bring in the other part of the span. It's no biggie.

I find the P2 format to be very solid.
