XDCAM Native to Vegas?

never tried this, but need to make sure. We have 5 tapes from an XDCAM the 335. Need to ingest in Vegas in HD but dont have the deck to do it. I will be having dupe house either transfer to drive or make tape copy back to mini HDV. Seems like direct to drive is best. But I dont know if the high bit depth of this cam will trip up vegas timeline, or slow it down to a crawl. Anyone?

you'll be fine (assuming your dup house don't supply you uncompressed AVIs that is.)

We cut XDCAM HD and HDV together on our timelines with no problem. (although I do edit with proxies from XDCAM HD) maybe your dup house could supply you with something similar or maybe you could use something like Cineform to convert you material into an intermediate AVI?

I've also ingested footage straight from FIREWIRE out on the back of DVCPro cameras before. I'm afraid I'm a cameraman so can't give you detailed technical specifics as to why and how....I just plug in and it seems to work! It's a great edit package. In contrast I tried the same on our AVid laptop and it died.
