Couldn't find an answer that made sense so forgive me if this has been covered.

Does AE CS5 handle native AVC-I 100 video from P2 cards?

I am planning to autoduck an FCP sequence over (simple cuts only stuff) to AE CS4 (which won't work) but hand the project over to someone who has CS5. Will this work? I don't have CS5 to test it.

Thanks!

Jeremy

My guess -- and this is JUST a guess -- is "yes", Jeremy.

Here's the pertinent info from AE 10's Online Help:

It talks about AE & Premiere, as you'd expect, but MXF works in AE. Spanned clips? I couldn't tell on a brief read.

Walter Soyka, a gent who visits both the AE and FCP forums, may have a better handle on this than I do: I just don't play with that MXF/AVC-Intra stuff to know for sure.

In lieu of Walter's wisdom, I recommend a test: if you've got a few MXF/AVC-Intra clips lying around, you could build a very brief FCP project with folders arranged properly (no Capture Scratch needed of course), clips trimmed in the timeline, with spanned clips if you've got 'em, use The Duck on it, and send if off to your AE person.

I'd say it'll work, and the only issue would be access to AVC-Intra.

Well, I bit the bullet and downloaded CS5 late last night, installed early this morning along with Autoduck, removed my fancy MXF plugins to make sure my machine would match the machine I am handing it over to and it works. Yay!

Thanks for the response.

Glad to hear it and thanks for writing back.

I'm interested in how AE would handle a spanned clip. I assume it would be okay, but I just don't know for sure.

[Dave LaRonde] "'m interested in how AE would handle a spanned clip"

Probably how MXF4mac in FCP handles it. It's just another clip. Using P2Flow and FCP, the clip is named as spanned and it easy to pick out the spanned clips. I would imagine that AE handles it the same way. Premiere might be a different story, but it's not a test day for me.
