Joining EX1 clips in post

I was shooting with two cards in the slots and I now have a clip that is split. How do I join them? I have FCP and have installed the Sony reader but haven't had any luck.

Use XDCAM EX Clip Browser.
1) Open two windows, make one of them your SxS card and the other a folder where you want to move the clips to.
2) Drag the first clip from the first card (window 1) into the clips folder (window 2)
3) Eject the first card and insert the second card
4) Drag the second clip from window 1 to your clips folder (window 2)

Clip Browser will join them together into one long clip in your BPAV folder. Then using XDCAM Transfer, import the clip into FCP (or what ever your using)

Sorry, I'm a little confused. Open two windows in Finder or in the Browser? When I tried to drag my second disk over it wouldn't let me because the file names were the same.

Just a friendly reminder to please use the search next time, the EX1 may have only been out for a short while compared to a lot of the current cameras but a lot of ground has been covered in this forum.

Hi Jesse,

Please re-read my original post. The first line.... "Use XDCAM EX Clip Browser" (not XDCAM Transfer).

Here, I tweeked the steps so they are more understandable:

1) Launch the XDCAM EX Clip Browser application
2) Inside the application, open two windows (this is the default, so you may not have to do this)
3) Inside one window navigate to your SxS card and in the other window navigate to the folder where you want to import your footage (where you want to store your footage).
4) Drag the first clip from the first card (window 1) into the clips folder (window 2)
5) Eject the first card and insert the second card
6) Drag the second clip from window 1 to your clips folder (window 2)

NOTE: The EX1/EX3 creates a special label for clips that span two cards (the clip names end in SMI). Using the above steps, you can easily join them together. In fact, I just import ALL the clips on CARD-1 associated with my project, eject the card, insert CARD-2 and import the rest of the clips associated with the project ALL AT ONCE. The software will automatically join together any clips that spanned both cards so you don't even have to worry about it. But you must import both cards to the same folder for this to work.

Hope that makes sense! :)

EDIT: I just read Joe's post from a while back, I guess you can do this using XDCAM Transfer as well. Read his post if you're interested. (see post #5 above for the link)
