AAF Import / AVC Intra playback within FCP
on Jan 18, 2013 at 10:57:17 am

Hi.

I'm needing to get a project from Avid into FCP 7.0.3 where the Avid's MXF files are using the AVCIntra codec.

I've installed Panasonic's AVCIntra Decoder / driver, and used Automatic duck to import the AFF project, but the video won't play back in FCP on the timeline.

Is there any way to get the files to playback? Am I missing anything?

Any pointers gratefully received.

Thanks so much.

Looking around it seems like the Hamburg Pro AVC-Intra QT codec is the way to go? I've requested a trial but has anyone used this codec in anger?

Thanks again.

What about using the option to transcode to ProRes? That's what I'd do.

Hi Shane

Thanks for the reply.

When you say 'the option' to transcode to ProRes, do you mean on the Avid System on when importing?

To transcode on my FCP system I surely need an MXF / AVC Intra plugin. And if the Avid system is PC, which I think it is, then normally you can't write ProRes files although I know there is a new PC ProRes codec (although it comes up as not being optimised for FCP when importing files written with it and Cinema Tools doesn't like it - so I'm wary!)


Am I missing something?

Thanks.


Ben

Hi Shane (or anyone else out there)

I'm struggling to find a solution. Plugins by Calibrated don't work in FCP7.0.3, Hamburg Pro's plugin's don't seem to work...

Is there really no way to open AVCIntra in FCP7? The AAF import creates QT Reference files to the original MXF files.

Think I may need to get the project delivered in a different way...

I just received some footage that turns out to be the AVC Intra100. The folder structure looks like P2. And, it comes in with my P2 log and transfer (FCP 7). But, FCP hates this footage. Quicktime hates it. It plays somewhat, but has locked up the software too many times. I have now converted to ProResHQ. I guess this stuff is probably happy-go-lucky in Premiere, not doubt. Is this pro-sumer stuff?

Nope, it's one of the many 'standards' that are being implemented in the distribution world at present.

For FCP7 you need a plugin to play it back / edit with it.
