How can I import a project and files from m100i to 844x? Will 844 recognize m100 files?

thanks

Hi Todd,

You should install the iFinish transcoder and that should allow you to play and import Media 100 footage.

To import a Media 100 project you would first have to use Export > To 844/X. This will give you a posh XML file which you can then import to 844/X. You will then have to redigitise your footage, it won't relink automatically to your imported footage.

Hope this makes sense,
Ben

Thanks for info. So I have an xml file of my program. Can I have xml files of my bins and programs? The important part is having 844x be able to link the existing timecode and re-digitize from that. I don't mind the re-digitize as long as 844 can pull the same clips from the M100 files.

Is this doable?

thanks

I usually make bins by dragging the clips from the timeline into a fresh bin. Then (and this is very very important), select both Program and Bin in the Project window before you right-click and select Batch Acquire.

You'll get two copies of each clip in the Acquire window, but it will only take it in once. If you don't do this, you'll have orphaned clips and anyone who's seen Annie knows how much trouble orphans are.

If you want (and I always want), add handles to the clips you're bringing in. This works well with most things. Clips with TimeFX are a bit of a bugger but no more so than with EDLs.

Hope this makes sense,
Ben
