XDCAM transfer glitches audio
on Sep 26, 2011 at 5:01:55 pm

Hello all,
I've transferred a few hours of XDCAM footage I received from a client in XDCAM Transfer. (The original file structure wasn't saved so I just have lots of folders with the .MXF and other files. Otherwise, I would have tried this in FCP Log & Transfer.) The files play fine in the preview window of XDCAM Transfer, but when I bring the .mov into FCP, the audio is crazy and glitchy. It's making it impossible for me to sync with Pluraleyes to my 2 other DSLR cameras and external audio files. I have the latest version of XDCAM Transfer and tried doing one file at a time, but still glitchy. The picture is fine, but I can't sync or use the audio.
I'm on FCP 7.0.3 and I'm using a MacBook Pro 2.6GHz Intel, 4GB RAM, on Mac OS X 10.6.8.
Any ideas?
Thanks!

I set the sequence to match the footage.
1920 x 1080 HDTV 1080i (16:9)
Square
23.98
Compressor: XDCAM HD422 1080p24 (50MB/s)
Audio: 48 kHz
24-bit
I can play the clips outside of FCP and they sound fine so it's something going on with FCP.

So I found a temporary solution to this issue.
To completely avoid using XDCAM in FCP, I transcoded the footage to Apple Pro Res (LT) (because that's what my DSLR footage is) and now I have my sound back in sync and it integrates into my project even better than before. The only losses I had were time, some quality, and hard drive space. So until this bug, or whatever this problem is, get's figured out, better luck transcoding.

This a dumb question, but how were able to transcode the footage?

Or better yet, what do you use to transcode your footage?
