xdcam HD import
by Paul Friedli on Aug 11, 2008 at 10:04:35 am
Has anybody tried the new sony import feature? My experience is that it takes long to import the files into m100 (tried with ProRes422 Codec). is there a faster way of doing this or having the files in a preview mode in m100, not in the sony software. is using another codec faster? Thanks for any sugestions.
I can't answer your question---your information/query is too general-- it would be helpful if you include some additional information:
1- Your clip lengths (total amount of footage) that you are trying to import. Include bitrate (25/35,etc)
2- Your machine (4 proc/8 proc MacPro/G5, etc.) and processor speed/RAM, etc.
3- Your storage. (Single drive or SCSI/SATA raid)
4- OS/QT/M100 version.
5- A description of HOW LONG it is taking to import convert. (ie. a 4 minute clip loaded directly from the camera is taking 40 minutes to convert, etc.)
I edit video. I post sometimes.
I fix things. I eat marshmallows.
I play drums. I drink scotch.
I like TV.

Sorry for not posting all details
The system is an 8 core 2.8Ghz running 10.5.3, QT 7.5 and m100 12.7.1.
bitrate is 35
storage is a 3 drive Raid 0 internal with more than 200MB/s
Approximate time for import is 1.2 x real time
footage is variabel but I have tried with 1 min clips and it will take 1 min and 10 sec to import
