For XDCAM users converting to Cineform

Hey guys ,i spent most of today searching for a solution to cineform crashing on me while i was converting xdcam footage

So far using this method ive had no problems

Workflow:

Use Clip Browser to copy off of SxS
Export all clips to .MXF for NLEs
Convert with Cineform

this stopped the persistent crashing i was having ,i realize this might be common knowledge ,but i didn't find anything while searching ,so if someone else was having the same problem just thought id help

I guess you're having trouble using HDLink to convert the clips directly? Works for me.

I'm using CF Neo4K 5.1.0 on Win7 64 and having no problem with EX1r footage- import with clip browser, and convert directly with HD Link. CF v.5 products are still 32 bit, tho optomised for a 64 bit environment as well.
You might try posting on the DVInfo CF forum- support for this sort of problem is excellent over there:

I'm using W7 64bit with NeoHD v5.12 b271 . I download from the card using ShotPut Pro and point HDLink at the CLPR folder and set it to converting the files to avi.
