Ex and Avid

Can you work with EX files in Avid yet?

Yes, I'm doing it in Avid Media Composer 2.7.2 on a PC.

There is only support for the formats that is the old XDCAM HD formats like:
SP 1080i50 (1440x1080)

You have to use the Sony Clip Browser and export to .mxf files that can be imported into Avid.

I made this thread before on how to get 1080p25 files into Avid using ffmpeg.

Does this give you full support for the EX codec? No loss or problems?
What formats can you not get?

I tried http://www.ex.bolanski.com and didn't get anything .

I have a major client who uses Avid so this question radically affects whether I buy the camera yet.

It's not www.ex.bolanski.com its ex.bolanski.com.

Avid only supports SP formats to my knowledge, as stated in my post. I'm in a PAL area so I use SP 1080i50 I guess 1080i60 would work to but I don't know.

I also have a solution to use HQ 1080i50 and HQ 1080p25 but I don't know how lossy that would be, my guess is not much but try for yourself and see.

Go to ex.bolanski.com and download a clip if you like, I have a zip file of almost every format the camera can do, but they are only 9-12 frame clips. I made them for users to test if there NLE's can use them at all.
