XDCam HD plug in

I really don't care if it is a Aspect Module or Prospect addtion. I just wish that Cineform would support the FAM Workflow for the XDCAM HD 350. I know that I can still capture the video through the AJA card and all that good stuff. I also know someday it will happen that the FAM workflow is going to be the standard, but I hope and wish that I can stay with the Adobe workflow and not have to switch Apple. Which I believe a few people on this forum had to do because no one on the PC side sees this camera as a real contender in Video Production. I guess Mainconceipt but so far I hear it really is not worth installing. That is why I wish Cineform would implement the FAM workflow for the XDCAM 350. They have a solid rep and you know that their products will work that is why I would like to see them do this for all who use the XDCAM 330/350. I guess I could look at the AXIO. Axio is actually a grand more then Prospect. They do support FAM but only for import.

Help with HDLink Export to XDCAM

HELP!

I'm trying to use HDLink to Export a M2T file via firewire into an XDCAM HD Deck with MPRG TS Card option and HDLink is not cooperating.

The Deck and the card work as I can take my Z1U and transfer stuff in and out of the PDW-F70. It's only HDLink that insists on rolling the F70 on record then goes into a tizzy when it can't talk to it.

I don't want HDLink to record the F70.... I just want it to stream bits out. How can I disable transport control, or does anyone have a better way to do this?

thanks!

Prospect 3.xx and XDCAM HD

I just installed the latest Prospect update that supports XDCAM HD. What is the ingest procedure? I can't find anything on the site when I search for XDCAM or XDCAM HD.

Thanks.

Mount you XDCAM media/camera and convert the MXF files, either directly by specifying the output path, or copy the MXF data to your local drives first.

files

Hi David,
Can you send me your private email? So I can send you a ftp address to download three files that I just uploaded, so you can test.
And I can send you the messages that I received.
Thanks,

Gerson

I was able to convert your clips. However I did find an issue with the clips with only 2 channel audio, all our samples have 4 channels. So Banrisul0004.MXF converted fine, yet Ipanema0046.MXF & CapsulaZH-090.MXF required a small patch HDLink that will get into the current build. I'll send you the patch.

No need, all the new builds are up and they work fine with XDCAM-HD MXF clips, give it a try.

Hi David,
Just downloaded and tried Aspect and Prospect.
Neither worked. HDLink that comes with Aspect shutdown when I try to convert from MXF to AVI.
HDLink that comes with Prospect returns this message: Format not avaiable (P2 viewer missing).
But I´m trying to convert a XDCam HD file, not P2.
The version is 3.0.5 Build 135. There is no capture card installed in the computer.
I tried two different computers, with a up to date SP 2 installation.
Since I´m in Brazil, the XP comes in Portuguese. Don´t know if this can be a problem.
I read in other posts that some guys installed and are working with the files.
Do you think this can be a instalation problem?

It seems the HDlink can find the MXF libraries on your PCs.
Attached is .reg file, download, unzip and edit it: modify this line to much the path on your PC.
"DataDir"="C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\CineForm\\Data"

Then double click on the .reg file to update this entry. I'm guessing that the "C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\CineForm\\Data" path doesn't exist on a Portuguese XP install.

If this works, will will have a official fix in the next build.
