XDCAM pdw800 no codec on variable frame rate material
on Jul 26, 2010 at 2:56:33 pm

Hello

Sorry if this has been posted before. We recently shot three days of material on an XDCAM pdw800 mostly at 25 fps 1080. However a few shots were done at 50 fps using slow and fast motion. In XDCAM transfer these shots show up with a no-codec message and end up as black in quicktime. I can see the proxies and these play fine so I know we have the shots. They just won't transfer.

I have re-installed XDCAM transfer versions 2.10, 2.11 and 2.12 to no effect. I am using a MacPro tower and FCP 6.0.6.

Any help greatly appreciated

Cheers

Mark

Hi Mark,

Support for variable frame rate 50 MB 422 (PDW-700, PDW-F800) footage requires Final Cut Pro 7. FCP 6 will not be able to decode slow motion files from the F800. The codec is present only in 7.

Cheers,
