DVCPRO HD & XDCAM mutli clip
on Aug 4, 2010 at 7:26:20 pm

Hi im probably going to sound retarded but here goes. I just got a project shot on two different cameras, the EX1 and an HPX. The EX1 footage was a bit of a pain to bring in, not sure if its cuz im running FCP7 and snow leopard or not. The HPX footage comes in as dvcpro hd 720p60. I want to multiclip these but im getting an error that the clips are not of the same frame size. I looked and the dvcpro footage is at 960x720, as opposed to 1280x720 which the xdcam footage is in. I thought i should convert them in compressor to get it to match? Is this a good idea or will I lose data?
What is my best solution?
with compressor:
I converted xdcam to dvcprohd 720p60 with a frame size of 960x720 -- didnt match
I converted original hpx footage to dvcprohd720p60 frame size 1280x720 -- this didnt match my xd cam frame size... but oddly enough it does match the earlier converted file (xdcam to dvcprohd 960x720)
im so confused

And 960x720. You said one was 1280x720. EVERYTHING needs to match.

In order to multiclip, all the footage must match EXACTLY in every way. Codec, frame rate and frame size. Look at your imported DVCPRO HD footage...and convert the EX footage to match...exactly.

I got the suggestion just to convert it all to pro res w/ the same frame size... all opposed?
