    DPX Symphony Workflow

    Hi,

    I have a feature supplied in DPX and was going to export out using Metafuze on a PC then copy the file on to my XSan and AMA in to the Symphony.

    This will take a long time , does anyone else have a faster workflow ?

    I'm running Symphony 6.01 0n a Mac , hence using 2 workstations. I was going to use Parralels to run Windows or Boot Camp but they seemed a bit flakey.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    A method I have used is to create a quicktime reference of the DPX's using the AJA DPX to QT translator in your Mac, which you can download fron their site as part of any driver package.

    You may be able to use AMA to transcode the material to an Avid codec inside Symphony and maintain 10 bits.

    Importing directly works but the QT engine will truncate the material to 8 bit.
