It will export exactly what is on the timeline, just as when you export to any other deck.

I've only done this once, no FX, but a few titles and some sound track.

Interesting... So this means FCP can write MXF files using Sony's XDCAM MPEG-HD codecs right?

Bingo! That is correct. And you can place all the supplemental items like scripts, notes, graphics, etc. in the GENERAL directory of the disc. That's your 500mb to do with as you like.

I think the issue with the IMX drive not working with HD is down to the fact that the camera/decks/drives creates the proxies internally when you write a full res clip to the unit. So even a drive must be able to "read" the data in the files to be able to create an appropriate proxy. I am guessing that this is important to maintain the integrity of the disk file structure so that any compatible deck/camera can read the disk correctly.

Aha. Makes perfect sense. I had been searching for a real tech reason why that drive would be limited.

I bet with the new drive coming out, they offload that functionality to the computer; as in the drive will only work with software that will make sure that structure (with proxies generated by computer) happens correctly.
