CS4/CS5 and P2 cameras

First time poster here; hello everyone. I have a thread like this one started int he P2 area as well. Just seeking as much feedback as possible.

I use a Panasonic HPX-370 (P2) with Avid Media Composer at the day job. I am looking into a Panasonic HPX-170 (also P2) for my church, where we currently edit on Adobe CS4 platform. We will be upgrading to CS5. Initially we'll just shoot DVCPro50, but that will change to HD in the near-term future.

Is the Adobe workflow as simple as copying the MXF files to the project edit hard drive and doing an import in your Premiere project? Or are there a few more details?

Initially I would be connecting the camera via USB 2.0. The CS5 machine with have a SmartCard reader on board, of a flavor the Panasonic drivers will like.

Any thoughts or "tribal knowledge" I should have as I investigate this?

If you know of previous threads that would help, feel free to share links as well.

Thanks for any assistance you might offer!

Jon

Hi
Yes you just copy the "contens" folder to your hardrive and import the video folder into CS4 or CS5 project. As simple as that.

Jon,
I answered you in the Panasonic HD forum. But one thing I should add . . . when you drag the "contents" folder to your computer hard drive, also be sure to drag the .txt file along with it. Then import the video into Premiere and you're editing :)
