XDCAM transfer only exports whole clips

Good suggestion.

Thanks

OK, so I tried this out on a machine with FCP installed and it behaives exactly the same - i.e. if you chose 'export clip to folder' you get the whole clip, regardless of in and out markers set in the clip, but if you choose IMPORT and create a new .mov file you get the trimmed clip.

I've still to try doing an IMPORT to create a .mov then converting that mov back into an MXF using the CD tool, then putting that back on a Nano, or an XDCAM HD disc.

Regards

Dave

With this firmware does it limit the size of the "disk" to 23 or 50gb, or do you have to manually break it up?

I think you have to split manually

As far as I know you have to split up the clips manually which is a little tedious.

'be been trying to work out a good 'algorithm' for this but I haven't found one yet.

Seems a shame to only put 32GB on a 50GB disc for example.

Dear Marshall,

By "this firmware", do you mean our File Converter?

Or do you mean something else?

Dear Dave,

Are you referring to our File Converter when you say:

"As far as I know you have to split up the clips manually which is a little tedious.
I have been trying to work out a good 'algorithm' for this but I haven't found one yet.

Seems a shame to only put 32GB on a 50GB disc for example."

I am going to get a confirmation before I answer questions about our file converter.
I believe I know the answers, but I want to be 100% correct.

Could converter tool help?

Hi Dan - interesting.
I hadn't thought about the convertor tool having a role to play in 'packing' files onto an xdcam disc but that would be very handy if it is correct.

Since it looks like we need to do an export as mov files anyway it would be great if, in the process of converting them back to mxf the tool also warned you if you were trying to copy too many files onto one xdcam disc.

Regards

Dave

Dear Dave,

Please just send me an email with the details of what you are proposing.

I will forward it to our developer to see what we can do.
