Can I edit and export XDCAM422 or XDCAM EX?

I'm working on a TV program where the station only accepts HD in the XDCAM 422 or XDCAM EX formats. Can FCP X handle this? Can the new Compressor?

It doesn't handle it natively and you can't use the XDCAM browser. You have to use the XDCAM Transfer utility to wrap the XDCAM into a Quicktime file. Apparently you can just think of the XDCAM Transfer utility as your new log and transfer window.

Be warned though, XDCam Transfer doesn't currently work with Lion, apparently an update is due next month.

Once you have rewrapped your clips, FCPX works very well with both XDCam 422 and XDcam EX, in fact it's actually more stable with EX clips than FCP7 was.

Hopefully we'll get native editing in FCPX at some point

Thanks for the info. This appears to relate to importing XDCAM.... what about exporting it?

Bill,

I sent you an email. You can export as EXcam422 50mbs right from FCPX.

Here is a screen shot of the export window:
