Does the release version of the software work natively with XDCam/XDcam EX footage, Gary mentioned his beta version didn't but they do seem to be part of the codec downloads.

[Steve Connor] ", Gary mentioned his beta version didn't but they do seem to be part of the codec downloads."


its a semantic issue for me.

Sony support in FCPX requires that you use the Sony XDCam Transfer Tool, just like you did in FCP7

I just cannot call that "native" file handling, because it is not.

That's depressing because XDcam Transfer won't work with Lion and Sony have announced they will never support it because they want you to use the awful XDCam Browser, which probably won't work with Lion when it's released anyway.

Luckily I already have PPro which works with XDcam natively just fine

Why won't it work with Lion? Has Sony stated this? Or is the sky falling?

This is truly a major BUST!
We're left with no native XDCAM support in FCPX and no XDCAM Transfer for Lion.
Apple has just a few weeks to motivate Sony to develop XDCAM Browser support in FCPX on Lion (coming in July). Sony tends to be slow on this stuff.

So the supposed file based NLE FCPX cant support file based XDCAM as it stands. We are left with hoping or moving.

Look like the transfer is being replaced for support in Lion.

Gary, can you confirm that files that have been "unwrapped" by XDcam Transfer do work OK in FCPX

I tried this earlier today and it worked. The clips looked great. Hopefully this process is only temporary.

Best,
John

YES They DO.

Files processed via the Transfer tool ( like with FCP7) work without issue on FCPX.

I am just now getting to the Release version, there are some minor differences.

Trying to download XDCAM Transfer from Sony site as Apple Support directs me to it but hit free download and it downloads a Citrix app and error message. How do you get XDCam Transfer?
