    Importing from sony ex3

    I've been given a drive with files from a Sony EX3 camera, the files are MPEG4.The DS is not happy with them and as far as I can see from old posts I have to go through a lengthy process via a media composer to ingest them. Is this the latest state of play or is there a simpler way to import?

    Currently, you have to follow that lengthy process. Hopefully your original folder structure is still intact. AMA them into MC and then transcode the media to what ever DNxHD MXF flavor you like, then send via AAF or AFE to DS.

    Let us know if you need more precise info on how to.

    If it's only parts you want you can use the XDCAM Clip browser
    to browse, extract and convert parts of clips.

    I guess you need the XDCAM Clip browser anyway
    to create the AAF/AFE for MC.

    XDCAM Clip Browser v2.60 can be found here.

    Hey Mike,

    Using the XDCAM Clip browser to extract parts is a good tip.

     

    You can just AMA the XDCAM footage into MC, no AAF or AFE needed, then transcode from MC in order to send to DS.
