We have been shooting xdcam for at least a year and a half. We copy the BPAV folder from the card to a hard drive. Then link the media through AMA and away we go, no problem. We are using Mac Based MC 5.5.
I just got back from a 7 day shoot in Israel shooting with Sony F3 and recording on SxS cards. I have about Ten folders of material that contain folders with BPAV folders. All but 2 of the folders link. The 2 that don't come in to the bin with the file name but they don't turn yellow and they don't contain the drive path. Some others I shot on the same day and they are fine. Any ideas?
They open in good ole Premier and I can export to QT but what a hassle.
I had a lot of problems getting some red files into fcp.
It eventually turned out that the red application was only a front end driving a unix programme, which would not accept many characters in the file name ("&" in our case). It did not produce an error, just would not load.
