When i set my sequence to a XDCAM1080p30 35 VBR preset, then import footage shot to the same settings. I get message that the footage doesnt match the sequence settings. When i change the sequence to match the footage everything looks fine.
But im wondering why have a preset if it doesnt match the footage it is preset for, seems to defeat the purpose?
Hi Anthony,there are three different XDCAM flavors;
- XDCAM HD.
- XDCAM EX .
- XDCAM HD 422
Reading through your posts, I saw that you where working with some EX-3 footage.
Your preset shouldn't be XDCAM, but EX.
Both differs in the size and pixels: XDCAM is 1440x1080 HD pixels, while EX is 1920x1080 Square pixels.
I don't remember where the EX presets come from.
Is possible that you needs to install the SONY Transfer tool.
You get a plugin installed in FC so you can Log&Transfer and you can "Export to XDCAM".
I think that is when you get the Easy Presets installed too.
If you are unable to get them, post me and I can send them to you.
