I am trying to help a fellow cow user and it has been suggested that CatDV might be an answer to his question.
Basically, he gets a temp file, cuts a promo with it, receives a high res file and needs to use the High Res file to connect to the Low Res edit.
WIth FCP7, he did this through EDL.
With FCPX and CatDV, it seems I can do this as well, but it's not working.
Here's the process.
Edit a 720p23.976 DVCPro HD file down.
Export FCPXML of the Project.
Import to CatDV
OPen the Sequence and "Attach Media" and attach the high res 720p 23.976 ProRes movie
Export an FCPXML or "Send to FCPX"
the resulting sequence in FCPX results in a 25p sequence.
The media shows up as online, but the timeline is all black (meaning no media is shown).
All signs point to FCPX showing the proper file, but for some reason it isn't displayed in FCPX.
Oddly enough, we recently noticed a similar issue where FCPX would get confused if you tried to include 23.976 footage in a 25 fps sequence. Can you provide more details on how you created the initial sequence, was this within FCPX? What sequence settings did you use?
