Avid Media Composer 3.5.4

As of now Media Composer supports JVC's which use the Sony codec with the new AMA feature.
Those are very good news for all Avid editors.

As it happens, I'm editing files from a Sony EX3 camera on an Avid Media Composer 3.5.1 on a Mac. But, I used the clip manager to convert the .MP4 files for the Avid. Does this mean, for both the EX3 and the HM700/HM100 that these files will import directly into Avid MC 3.5.4? I would simply install the update and try it for myself, but I dare not do an upgrade in the middle of a project.

Yes Don. For all intents and purposes the Avid should not be able to tell the difference between Mp4 files from either the EX1/EX3 or HM100/700.

Have you tried using AMA with v3.5.1?

I apologize. I didn't phrase my question correctly. My HM700, without the add-on adaptor, produces .mov files. Does the latest Avid MC see both .mov and .mp4 files as XDCAM EX files and will import either natively in the newest version? As I mentioned, I'd try it but dare not upgrade in the middle of a project.

No AMA won't work with .MOV. From what I can tell it is designed to only look in the BPAV folder for .MP4 structures.
Since your Avid is on Mac you will just need the open-source XDCAM component for quicktime to work with your .mov but they will have to be converted to a DNX or similar codec, which I assume is what you have been doing.

Hi Tim, hi Donald,
when you work on a PC you can
use a little Help-Tool, it works with MP4
and .mov and is called "MP4 to MPG"
Here is the downloadlink
