XDCAM Frame rate converter

Hey guys

We are working with 24p and 25p together with 50p. Is there a way without using Cinema Tools to convert the files that are 720p50 to 720p25 at half speed? The sound doesn't matter..

In Adobe Premiere you can just right click and select interpret footage, and select 25p on the 50p clips and boom, they are slow motion 25p..

This is missing from Final Cut.. Any tips?

Need to send EX1 footage to someone with Final Cut 5.1.4

I shoot with the EX1, and I edit in FCP 6, but I'm working on a project that someone else is editing, and the other editor uses FCP 5.1.4. I am thinking that I'll load all the clips into FCP 6 on my machine and transcode them to a codec that the older version can handle... My thought is Apple Intermediate Codec - is that a good way to go? Uncompressed HD is too big to send, even though we're mailing hard drives around - we're mailing portable drives, not XServe RAIDs... As I understand it, old Final Cut doesn't like ProRes 422 any better than it does XDCam EX - is that true, or can I just go to ProRes?

EX1 for underwater work...

Gates, the underwater housing maker, has just posted a video test of
the EX1 underwater ( ~70 feet + )

This was a test of the new housing, the low light capability and white balance of the EX1 camera....

Looks like it passed ...

Extended Warranty for EX1

I'm not sure how many of you are aware that Sony offers an extended warranty for the EX1 (and other cameras that cost less than $10K), and I was a bit late myself to find out about this. The product is similar to AppleCare and costs only $160. Here's the Sony link:

http://pro.sony.com/bbsc/ssr/micro-x...SPSCAM10RSEW3/

I know a lot of dealers sell the Mack extended warranty which costs a bloody fortune and has questionable integrity, in my opinion. Given the price of the EX1 this Sony extended warranty is a no-brainer!

Component out flipped?

I've been exploring a number of portable cheap monitor solutions (portable DVD players with A/V in) using the composite video output. Has anyone noticed that the video is flipped horizontally on the composite output but not on the component output? For the composite output, the menu overlay is not flipped - only the video from the lens. Weird.

Would anyone have a contact at Sony for bug submissions?

I seem to have lost the plastic case for my 16G SxS card . Does anyone know if you can get an extra from Sony or anyone else?

Advice for Blue Screen and HD-SDI recording

Hi,

In a couple of weeks I'll be filming with my EX1 some Blue screen shots. I'd like to have some advice about best setup and PP settings for Blue Screen. We'll be filming in a dedicated Chroma Key Studio (only blue screen, not green). Also, as I'll be using the uncompressed HD-SDI out (to PC with Xena LHe and Cineform), is it possible to use the live HD-SDI output and, at the same, record to the internal cards (as a backup)?.

Thank you, any advice is most welcome.

Half image blur

I remember reading a thread a few months back about someone experiencing one side of the image rather soft but i cannot find it.
Anyone else experience this problem?
