I recorded on a HPX-500 in 720p60p to some P2 cards. Generally, my understanding for spanned clips is that you need to combine the CONTENTS folder from each P2 card into ONE folder so that the clips span properly. Secondly, I thought that duplicate filename is something that should never happen.
While dumping my P2 cards, I got a File Exists notice from Windows, to my surprise, the file existed and when I checked the MXF XML files, they had different "TOP" clips altogether. How does this happen and how can I prevent it from happening? These were not part of the same spanned clip. I really only had two 90 minute shots, and I suppose randomly, each one had a clip in the middle of the same filename.
