Media Managing footage from a single raw clip
on Mar 24, 2010 at 3:26:09 pm

I'm hoping someone out there can shed some light on what I'm trying to do.

This past year we've made the switch to a full FCP shop. For the job I'm working on now, we needed to bring some old B-roll captured to our PC tower into FCP.

We've done this by taking the SDI out from the PC's Matrox bob, and going into the SDI in on the AJA Kona. This allowed us to capture straight from Premiere to FCP.

What we're trying to do, is put cuts on this capture to separate the B-Roll clips, and then either Media Manage or Batch Export to render them to their own self-contained clips.

I've tried a variety of settings and techniques, but the Media Manage keeps spitting out the lone raw capture from the Premiere timeline.

Am I doing something wrong or am I trying to do something that's simply out of the realm of possibility? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I should add that one of our Editors attempted this, laying the footage on the timeline and making cuts, then media managing. It worked, but we can't seem to duplicate the process on other machines.

I managed to find a less-than-pretty work around.

Once you cut up your clips on the timeline, drag them back into your Bin. They will all be named the same, but this is ok.

Highlight them all, then click File > Batch Export.

Once you set your destination and Item settings, click export. Batch Export will automatically prompt you to re-name all of your clips.

Thus far its the easiest thing I've found with out purchasing ReCut.

I'm not an expert with Media Manager and I'm sure others who use it will have some recommendations. There's an excellent Cow tutorial on how to use Applr Automator. You might be able to use it for your task.
