Can you edit HD CAM on FCP 6?
on Jun 20, 2007 at 11:56:39 pm

Can someone please tell me if there is a way of editing HD Cam on FCP 6?
Can you do it on a G5 Quad (not intel)?
Would IO HD from AJA do it?

Thank you any info is appreciated


Tapes come from a Sony HDWF 500 VTR

Thank you for the quick response. I knew you could edit HD on FCP, maybe I should re-phrase my question.

What hardware do you recommend? I would be digitizing the material from a Sony HDWF 500 VTR. Would the AJA I/O HD be the way to go, maybe the Kona 3 card or how about the Blackmagic Eclipse?

What's your suggestion?


Thanks,

Kona 3 is the desktop standard.

I have the Decklink HD Pro card and capture/edit to tape HD SDI from any of the HDCam decks 500, 2000, 1800 without problem. There are many Kona and Decklink cards. All you need for HDCam is a card with HD SDI in and RS422 control, so I would be looking at the other features of the various cards to determine the best price & features. I don't need analogue in for example but need component monitoring out.

Most important is a fast and big external RAID. I am using a 4TB sata RAID with dual fibre. This works fine for uncompressed 50i & 60i.

I use a Quad 2.5G5, Kona 3 and a pair of Huge raids to edit HDCam at 10 bit uncompressed, although I usually convert to DVCProHD. I bring the footage in HDSDI from the deck thru the Kona 3. It's pretty straightforward and I've had no problems at all. It works.

Great feedback, thanks to everyone, I will be doing some research, and go ahead with the HD transition.

Thanks again for all the replies.

I noticed you use a sata RAID and dual fibre. What brand? We have a dual fibre Medea SAN on a MacPro and G5, but I'd like to add a 2TB local sata to the MacPro to handle 444 10bit. Is there a card conflict issue? Can you recommend a good price/performance drive set?

Thanks, Film Joe
