XDCAM import
on Jul 30, 2008 at 8:23:36 am

Anybody using the XDCAM workflow in 12.7 ?

As far as i can see there is no native support for IMX ?

The files get imported to the selected codec in Media 100 that means importing and converting, takes about as long as digitising normally.

Also widescreen 16:9 media is interpreted by media 100 as 4:3 media.

And if you import to lo res media 100 media and later want to reimport for online finishing there is no functionality to do this.

Any hints or insights would be welcome !

I may be wrong here, but with my limited FCP experience, my xdcam-hd files had to be rendered into my fcp project as well, apple just didn't use the sony transfer utility. As far as length of imports go, I imported 32min 1080 / 23.98 footage in about 10 minutes. The speed may be affected by your cpu, I'm not sure about that. I'm on a 8 core 3.2ghz mac pro.

Hi,

FCP supports native imx and xdcam formats, it only rewraps the files into quicktime.


Media 100 converts (in this case IMX files) to your chosen media 100 codec setting.

Hey Marc,

Can you be more specific about the 16:9 vs 4:3 problem?

I'd like to try to reproduce it here and (if we can) make it go away.

Hi,

Specifically:

We have a PDW-1500 connected to the Media 100 via firewire and mounted on the OSX desktop.
The files on the XDCAM are MXF-IMX-50 SD 16:9 media files.
Media 100 does not support IMX so transcodes the files to chosen media format. The files are standard definition and widescreen.
After import the files in the media 100 bin are 4:3 aspect ratio.
That means when dumping them into the timeline, media 100 asks to conform media or interpret as 16:9

Clear ???

cheers !
