XDCAM HD / Vegas 8 / partial FAM

Though release of Vegas 8 clearly states "partial clip import in FAM Mode" (and YES, there´s an option to click in the "consolidate window" I cant bring Vegas + F330 to import partial clips...

Any idea? Anyone working with Vegas 8?

Thanks

I take it that you are conforming proxy footage to the full resolution files?

Which version of Vegas 8 are you using (have you downloaded the latest update?)

Can you describe to me in detail your workflow?

Hi Simon,

well , I guess its the first V8 release (I can try with latest release next week):

I import the proxies via XDCAM explorer within vegas.

Edit proxies (e.g. trim them),

go to xdcam explorer -> conform files

->windows open "please insert XDCAM disc #"
->select "partial FAM for regions if possible"

->GO

I also trimmed some clips within the cams Edit List and tried to place those proxies into the timeline (hoping I could import a small portion via this way), but no luck.

Uli, can you check for me what firmware version your camera is currently using?

Hi Simon,

I just updated V8 to build 179:

Just had a try with a short region out of a 1.5GB clip - and it works perfectly with V8 179 (importing just ~100mb). Vegas captures the region(s) only and offers a 2s spare area at the beginning/end of the clips.

Interestingly also Vegas 7 offers the "partial FAM" option - but always imports the whole 1.5gb.

BTW : the cam is

AT 1.52
Package 1.60

Kind regards
