Can't you use the pre-record buffer? If the action is only a few seconds, use a remote record button. As soon as you have seen good action, hit the button and the last 7 seconds (on 50Mb) will be dumped to the card... Very efficient. Use the continues recording tape as a backup.

Dear Ron,

Yes, good suggestion.

Our Pre-Record Buffer is especially useful for wildlife filming.

A remote control switch, which we offer is very helpful in this situation, especially if the camera is on a tripod, aimed at the place where the action is expected. This allows the videographer to be in a comfortable position.

To answer the poster's question as to whether FCP Log and Transfer can be used to work on nanoFlash files, the answer currently is no. Log and Transfer will not recognize them. But, as Dan suggested you can merely play the mov files directly off the card and pick the takes you want.

But what I think the poster was asking for was the ability to set in and outs on the clips and only fill his hard drive with a specific usable portion of the file. This saving of drive space could also be achieved by using Media Manager after setting in and outs in FCP to recover the drive space taken by unused sections of the clips.

I'd second what John said, media manager is the first option that comes to mind. Alternatively, you could open a clip with quicktime, create in and out points, and then "trim to selection" and "save as". This is faster than the XDCAM transfer process, but the interface is less elegant/efficient and you will need to manage your source files and carefully control your archival process so as to only keep what you need.

L&T is for footage that needs transcoding.
No need of L&T with NANO.

If you want to work with subclips, you just need QT player.
Mark IN and OUTS and copy&paste to a new QT window.
