HD100 - Firestore - Avid Xpress

If I'm shooting with an HD100 to Firestore at 24p, I shouldn't have any of the 24p capture problems on Avid Xpress, correct? Will I be able to drop the files into the timeline and edit in 24p?

Avid Xpress Pro and Media Composer DO NOT support the JVC HD100 720/24P HDV Editing. It is disgusting that the best and largest video editing company in the world failed beyond belief with ProHD support.

Here is the best workaround currently (and free):

- Use DVHSCap (or a firestore) and capture the .m2t file.
- Open the file in MPEG STREAMCLIP.
- Select Avid Codec DNxHD.
- Bring the Quality Slider to Best.
- Deselest the De-interlace check boxes.
- In the Frame Rate Box, enter 23.976.
- Next to DNxHD, you need to go into the options and select which quality and frame size you want to edit in (Either 1080 or 720, and one of the qualities).

In Avid, create whatever project type is correct with your frame size. Avid will quickly import the files, but it will also Copy them and transcode to MXF...it does this quickly because of the DNxHD. You can delete the original files after importing.

This seems like a long workaround but it is rather quick. The only time consuming thing is the conversion. You can also Batch Convert in MPEG STREAMCLIP
