using XDCAM Transfer

I have a client that is all FCP. They own an EX-1. They are using XDCAM Transfer for moving clips to drives. I had been under the impression that Clip Browser was preferred. Seems that XDCT is faster. Are there any issues for them in using XDCT instead of Clip Browser??


Also, they were not able to make the Sony SxS card reader work with SDHC cards in an adapter. Is that normal?

Afraid so.

Have them use a standard SD carder reader.

ClipBrowser with CRC to copy files.
XDCAM Transfer to wrap to MOV.

If they go straight to MOV, they have no Camera Master once the cards are erased. If the files are corrupted during the re-wrap they are in major trouble once the cards are erased.

Craig, have you ever had a .mov corrupted?

I never have. In well over a 1000 maybe more like 3000 clips transferred using XDCAM transfer.

Nope. Not ever. I wouldn't want to experience the first time on a camera master though without BPAV backed up.

On the other hand have you ever handed anyone an XDCAM EX MOV file who didn't have Final Cut Pro?

If I have a job where I have to hand off files to PC users, I give the BPAV and support files or I will include transcoding in the price. I have done this a few times. QT uncompressed is a good though big standard, that pretty much anyone can read, as is the animation codec. Some people even just want a .mpg.

Most of the time I just shoot and hand of files, HDcam tapes etc. it is to people with Macs. A lot of them shoot EX themselves. I end up uploading H.264 files at times, very easy from .movs.

I often have cpu's running all night transcoding. I have even delivered some EX footage on HDV tape, because it is the "only HD we handle".

Umm...yes. With disastrous results I might add. But that was when I first got my EX-1 and knew nothing about codecs and wrappers
