That's the problem in a nutshell...I need some Mac experience to weigh in.

In my current situation, I have an uncompressed, 10 bit, HD QT that is sitting on a Mac and I need to get it over to my Windows XP machine (Xena LH) for CC and trimming...

NTFS disk formatting seems to be readable but the mac tells me I do not have "permission" to write to it...is this something I can change? I've always just formatted whatever harddrive to PC (FAT 32) on the Mac and simply carried the stuff over, but it was always P2 footage...file sizes always were compliant.

This is a film transfer...one continuous roll. Shots are long enough that even if I cut it up on the mac, I wouldn't have small enough filesizes for FAT32.

Anybody that has any ideas?

(two different organizations BTW...networking not really practical)

There are some really great networking options, but as you said that they aren't an option, I would suggest this:

http://www.paragon-software.com/home/ntfs-mac/

It will allow you to write to NTFS on the mac. That way you won't have to deal with the file restrictions on FAT32.

MacDrive is software for Windows that will let you read Mac formated drives. If you're on Mac and want to write to a NTFS drive, then you'll use the Paragon software.

If you're in a multi-platform workflow, then I think both programs are a must.

So the real question is, what OS did they use to edit that video:) Linux open source editing software?

Guys, thanks to you both...

I'm working my way back to the fruit from about 10 years on the darkside and I'm not up-to-date yet on all the subtleties of cross-platformness.

i will look at both and may indeed grab them both.

Thanks again.

Turn on the FTP (sharing) on your Mac. Then FTP into it from your PC. If you have gigabit network structure should be relatively quick.

Thanks Erik,

the drive reading software actually is the perfect answer for me as the two systems aren't close together...

Two words:
Image Sequence. If you export as .tif, .tga or .dpx you won't have these file size problems. You'll have to include the audio as a separate file, though.
