Dear Friends,

We feel that this is a significant day for us.

The PC Version of our File Converter is something that we wanted for quite some time.

Now, one can shoot in quicktime format, ".MOV", then "re-wrap" the files to ".MXF" whether they have access to a Mac or a PC.

The "re-wrap" process is not a transcode, no image quality is lost, and the process occurs fairly quickly, about disk copy speeds.

One can select files on a CompactFlash card, and then "re-wrap" them when doing the initial copy to a hard disk system in a computer.

Thanks Tommy and Dan!

This PC utility will most certainly come handy, especially when exchanging material with fellow nanoFlash operators within a common project, who themselves work on Mac platforms.

While we're at file utilities, the next one on the wish-list would be one for 4GB-limited, and/or card spanning, chunks concatenation into a single file per take of any length...

Any plans for that?

Thank You ! Thank You !! Thank You!!!
I just tested this last night and it worked great! I had shot some (EX1) MOV green screen footage for a client a couple of days ago, and wanted to do some test composites to demo it with a bunch of backgrounds I had just shot. My home system is all PC, and I was able for the first time to easily take the Nano MOV files and make them usable in PC-Land! Even though I was only doing 'demo composites', it was great getting to use the high quality 4:2:2 Nano MOV files rather than going back to the 4:1:1 SxS card data. And the client loves having the MOV's since they speed up the process of getting the data into Final Cut.

Thanks very much, this was the missing piece of my workflow. I am going to write up an article on how to use it next week.
