Hello,

I have a question for the Flash XDR. I have windows at my pc. What for a codec should I install for using I-Frame 100 Mbit mov or mxf).

Thank you!

Hi Peter-
If you are editing in Avid or Edius, then the CODEC is already built into the program. We use the XDCAM HD 422 CODEC (MPEG2 4:2:2). If you just want to view the clip, then you can use the Sony Clip Browser, which can be download from: https://servicesplus.us.sony.biz/son...l-PDZVX10.aspx

Best-

Hi,

You can also use our Calibrated{Q} XD Decode Codec - a QuickTime decode codec for XDCAM HD422/HD/EX/HDV .MOV files for applications that can import QuickTime files. You can download a demo here:

Calibrated{Q} XD Decode

Cheers,
Greg

Hi,

thank you for your answer. I edit with Premiere CS3. If I want to input a file I get an error.

Greetings
Peter

Hi Peter, the following is a quote from a different thread regarding Premiere support.

We do not expect to alter our MXF files for Premiere as they already play in Avid, Edius and Vegas.
Hope this helps,

Paul

Hi Paul,

but I can't convert the file with Procoder from Canopus (Grass Valley), the same company who produced Edius.

sad, but true. Procoder will not parse the XDCAM HD 422 codec. however, if you're looking for a conversion utility, it can be found with Mainconcept's Reference Codec, which will read XDCAM HD 422.

While Premiere does not natively support XD422, the Matrox AXIO extension does. So in theory those MXF files should play on an Axio system. I would like to test this. Are there any XDR generated MXF files posted online that I can use to test that functionality?

Hi Mike-
We will post some test MXF files on our website on Monday.

Here are a couple of mxf files: nothing fancy, they were shot out of our lab window.
We are working on better footage but here is something in the meantime:
