I have always been using Panasonic technology and only rarely XDCAM but now I have a question concerning SONY.
My company asked me to edit material on a OB VAN HD on XDCAM technology. I was wondering if there are any codecs you need to install on my MacBook Pro before capturing the material in HD? Something like XDCAM transfer or else?I am using "Easy Setup: in my FCP choosing SONY- XDCAM HD and then it appears to be ok: Device Control: Non controllable Device and Capture: Generic Capture Template. So i have a question if everything is ok or I need to install something?
The second question is what is your opinion concerning VBR and CBR. What to use?
