100 Mb/s Timeline Settings

Hi there,

I have footage that was shot via the nanoFlash in XDCAM 422 1080 25p @ 100Mb/s I-Frame.
When I drop it into FCP, I match sequence settings to the clip, and the data rate is maintained at 100Mb/s, however when I export it compresses to XDCAM's max of 50Mb/s.

Is there a way to edit the compressor limits so I can export at 100Mb/s?

It's possible I may not be understanding the exact process, so any help is greatly appreciated!

Re: 100 Mb/s Timeline Settings

If you don't render your sequence, the file, although nominally 50Mbps, will keep the original 100Mbps.
If you render the resulting file will be 50Mbps.
No workaround.

Re: 100 Mb/s Timeline Settings

Set up a ProRes timeline and when FCP asks you if you want to change it to match your clip say no. 100 Mbps Nanoflash files should work fine within a ProRes timeline. That way the export render will be a high quality. If it's 100 Mbps I frame I'd pick ProRes LT or 422 and if it's 100 Mpbs Long GOP I'd pick 422 (HQ) to maintain the quality.
