[Brett Sherman] "Are there significant advantages to copying MXF directly off the camera card versus rewrapping to Quicktime? I'm not sure why I would do this."

For me, it's one less set of media to archive.

I have been using MXF media in fcp7 and X for s long time. With direct MXF import, I don't have to archive both the MXF and QT rewraps, instead I just archive the MXF. This means if I have a shoot with 2TBs of shoot media, I can archive that 2 TBs, and not 4TBs.

This is separate from backup. You should slways have backups. The nice thing about it is, should something go wrong on your main storage system, you can simply reimport the MXF files directly from backup instead of waiting for all of them to rewrap again. I am curious to see what is going to happen with X's consolidation commands and MXF.
