I have a rather unorthodox XDCAM HD workflow. I want to exploit the soft import functionality of AMA in Avid. For that, I have to use XDCAM formatted folder structures (so that the Avid thinks that it has camera rushes connected to it). My goal is the take loads of QT files, transcode them and end up with XDCAM HD 422 50mbit files inside an XDCAM file structure with, if possible, XML metadata attached using a software. I have tried XDCAM clip browser, FCP and I get MXF files, but no structure. Is there a soft out there that emulates a XDCAM machine?
Having read around and tested, I see that Sony clip browser reads the files without needing the MEDIAPRO.XML. Sadly, the Avid AMA uses the MEDIAPRO.XML file and does not see the mp4 files. Therefore any idea on how to create the MEDIAPRO.XML file automatically?
