Sony Vegas & PDWF350

I'm currently attempting to figure out the workflow of Sony Vegas with the F350 and have been running into many roadblocks. The configuration I need is for basic news editing and exporting the finished product back to the camera or hopefully use an FTP.

One problem I've been having is exporting back to the camera. The deck will export, but it looks like it's exporting in 30p (we're shooting in HD HQ 60i). Another issue is slow FAM ingest speed, slow timeline rendering, followed by slow exports ... REALLY can kill you when you're working a deadline.

Please help. Any advice or point me in the right direction of websites, books & classes available is MUCH appreciated

I can only tell you that you should open the help index in Vegas and there is a section devoted to working with MXF files. I assume you're using Vegas 7. There is a new update to 7.0d that was just released within the last week.

I've found it to be fairly easy to work with F350 footage in Vegas7 even though I am really new to the software. That section in the online manual should get you going.

Sorry I can't be of more help here.

XDCAM timeline rendering IS CPU intensive. In FCP or Vegas or any other software, crunching HD rez material into small sized MPEG2 does require advanced number crunching.

so, you're best bet is to have these spec in a laptop:
- at least an intel core2 duo T7200 2GHz
- at least 2GB of RAM
- fast (& big) USB2 or firewire drive.
