Hi

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.)

THX.

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

That's about what we get. Outside of simple quick transitions....Most (anything) on this system seems to render at 1x(realtime) or slightly slower.

10 min usually takes 10 min for us as well. (primary system -quad proc - 2.66 dual/dual)
