P2-Avid Adrenaline experiences: any to share yet?

While I haven't been through every thread yet, it seems like the overwhelming experience so far among HVX200 users is with Final Cut. Does anyone have experience bringing the MXF files into Adrenaline (which Avid claims should be totally seamless and virtually instant) yet? That's the machine I use primarily (though I have FCP at home now and am starting to learn it...)

re: P2-Avid Adrenaline experiences: any to share yet?

Scott,
I can't speak to Adrenaline, but I have use Avid Xpress Pro HD w/Mojo. Earlier this week I shot with the HVX, and had mixed luck. I was able to load the P2 drivers and copy the files from the P2 cards to a local drive on my Avid system (Dell 670) with no problem. The Panasonic P2 Viewer crashed my system on startup (of the P2 Viewer program), so that got uninstalled. Avid had a problem with the P2 Drivers being installed and wouldn't load until I un-installed the P2 Drivers. However, once that was done and I got Avid to start up, it all worked as advertised. From Windows, I copied the P2 files into the AvidMedia file structure, and in Avid used Media Tool to copy the MXF clips into a bin.

If you come up with a better workflow (less copying) let me know...
Cheers,
Paul

Avid's white paper on P2 integration indicates that
"Media Composer Adrenaline offers the ability to mount P2 devices and directly edit DV25, DVCPRO (DV50) and DVCPRO HD (DV100) media off these devices without having to first manually copy the media into the systemís Media Files folder. "
It says there are problems with Symphony Nitris, but doesn't indicate that any of the other current products behave any differently than Adrenaline. Have you tried just mounting and editing without the copy process?

No, I haven't tried to mount and edit without the copy. The directions in my XpressPro help file for how to edit P2 data were to copy them into AvidMedia directory. I'll be working with the camera again on Monday, so I'll try it that way and let you know.
