    Export Quicktime ref from XDcam Sequence problems?

    HI PC forum, Please be gentle with this MAC user who needs help.

    I have been editing for a friend on his Windows XP Ver 5.0.4. I imported XDcam rushes into a 1080i 25p project in DNxHD 120 (1080i25P), did the edit and then did a 'send to' Squeeze QT reference of the edit.

    In Sorrenson Squeeze, all the HDCam XD material in the edit did not show up! Everything else did, the graphics, file vision, Canon 5D .movs, etc.

    I also tried exporting just an XDCam clip via export quicktime reference to the desktop and play in in quicktime and it would not play.

    What have I done or is the system missing something to read the XDCam Quicktime reference material. I did not use AMA. The XDCam was imported into the avid and MXF media was created?

    I was able to achieve an oupput by doing a video mixdown of the entire sequence and sorrenson was happy with that Quicktime reference

    Any thoughts?

    You need a quicktime component that can decode XDCAMHD. Have a look at calibratedQ XD Decoder from calibrated software. Or make a DNxHD videomixdown.

    When XDCamHD material is imported into MC using a DNxHD codec, doesn't it cease to be XDCam material?

    If imported as DNxHD ceases to be XDCAM material.

    If imported as fast import remains in the XDCAM codec.

    Thanks all, I was back in the suite today and sorted out the issue. Vilem, you were spot on. What I did was to transcode to DNXxHD after linking, (via AMA) and the rest was sweet.

    My producer was VERY happy!
