Fast and Efficient Workflow for AF100 Needed
on Nov 14, 2012 at 7:09:48 pm

Ever since I purchased my AF100, I've struggled to find a workflow that meets my needs. Primarily, I'm concerned with reviewing material on location in quick and timely manner that also benefits me in post.

Before the AF100, I used the Sony PMW-EX1 and EX3. They're great cameras and offer 2 major benefits that I can't seem to replicate on the AF100…

  • Review footage in the field via a library/viewer, from multiple cards, in a quick manner (and ability to sort)
  • Consecutive file numbering across cards, formatting, etc. I could set the number counter to anything on the EX1, which means that I wasn't concerned with duplicate file names in a project.

  • Solutions Attempted...
  • I've tried ClipWrap, but the wraps are still slow when I view them in Premiere. I don't have time to transcode in the field.
  • I have a file renamer for the finder ("Better Renamer 9") but its too time consuming and too many steps to mess with in the field
  • Mountain Lion (the current Mac OS I'm running) complicates my process because it views the AVCHD folder as a file. Yes, I know I can right click to view the package, but time consuming to drill down multiple levels in the field across reels.

    I don't have an AF100 myself but I was always a fan of P2CMS for my HPX170. Have you tried Panasonic's own AVCCAM Viewer?

    - Final Cut X can read/edit AVCHD files natively

    - Portable Blu-Ray players with an SD card slot can play AVCHD files natively
