With a Sony plug in, SxS cards can be seen in the FCPX import interface as a "camera" and thus media can be ingested directly from the device into the FCPX library. VERY COOL. Does anyone know why this same workflow doesn't work with the optical disks or am I missing something?
As a workaround I've tried Catalyst Browse and I'm struggling to get the Transcode feature to work properly. I'm taking a single clip and trying to transcode to XDCAM HD (1440 x 1080 @ 35 mbps). I ended up with a .mp4 file on my hard drive, but it's been transcoded to 360p resolution. Thinking I accidentally picked the wrong Preset, I tried again. This time the resulting file was a .mxf and would not play on my computer.
