    Re: SONY Z7U 1080 PROGRESSIVE M2T IMPORT?

     Hmm, so in order to use Sony's Z7U camera's 24P feature, it basically means its not compatible with Avid so far right? Only 30P? 

    I guess Im wondering if there is a way to convert these m2t files which was shot on HDV native progressive 24p into 30p for avid to be able to import from the CF cards..

    It's weird on how I can import 24p Scan mode no problem, probably because it was shot 1080i, but not this new progressive mode they have..

    BLKDOG, let us know what is the outcome going to avid and see what they say.. its a bummer now because the only way to edit these clips is to capture downconverted to Standard def and capture with tape.

    Re: SONY Z7U 1080 PROGRESSIVE M2T IMPORT?

    BobRusso:
    My only suggestion is to use DVFilm Maker and convert the .m2t file to a DNxHD QuickTime file. DVFilm recommends recording using 1080i/59.94 and allow Maker to convert the video to 23.976.
    Or you could stay within Avid corporate and get yourself a copy of Liquid, which imports the 24P from the CompactFlash without problems and edits natively on the timeline (no render to another CODEC required). (OK, a blatant plug from your friendly neighborhood Liquid mod. Big Smile)

    This is something that's going to need to be addressed, as the whitepaper referred to was written before Sony had a true 24p HDV camera. Hopefully this will be supported in a near-future update.

    Re: SONY Z7U 1080 PROGRESSIVE M2T IMPORT?

    What project type do you select in MC if you want to do 1080p/30? I don't see that listed.

    And will 1080/24p be available as an option soon?

    Thanks,

    Re: SONY Z7U 1080 PROGRESSIVE M2T IMPORT?

     so i got no updates.. nothing.. zilch.. is avid making another update that supports this?

    Also how about for the Z7U Standard def on the CF card (DV or AVI files), is there any support so you can import these files with timecode? Everytime I import these there is no timecode..

    Re: SONY Z7U 1080 PROGRESSIVE M2T IMPORT?

    I ran some tests with a borrowed 270 (which is the big brother of the z7) and found that all the media (60i with pulldown for 30p, 24p, or 24pa; as well as the 'true' 30P and 24P progressive footage) imports into the 1080i/59.94 Project as HDV 1080i 60.  This is really strange because it is listed as true progressive (not pulldown) but is labelled by Avid as 60i.  These progressive clips won't import into 1080 24P project, but will into a 60i???

    I was able to get timecode on all my HD clips by switching the TC setting on the camera from Regenerate to PRESET (had to do this when a tape was NOT synch recording), but the SD footage timecode always resets for each clip...  Makes no sense.

    Re: SONY Z7U 1080 PROGRESSIVE M2T IMPORT?

    So, what happened here? Where's Bob Russo? I don't want to have to go with Apple/FCP, but it looks like that's the only solution here. Why can't Avid MC just include 1080p/24 HDV as a project type?

    Or... the absolute best solution would be to transcode the 24p M2t file into DNxHD115 and import it into a 1080p/23.976 non-HDV project. But what S/W can do that? Is there some licensing issues with HDV that makes it too expensive for Avid? Why can Apple FCP do it, and Avid can't?

    Re: SONY Z7U 1080 PROGRESSIVE M2T IMPORT?

    According to this pdf, 1080p 23.976 is supported from the Z7u and Z5u in Avid MC 3.5 and later, but ...
    Capture is only supported with "on the fly." There is no Batch Catpure, and capture using In & Out Marks. The timecode from the tape is unusable.

    http://cdn.pinnaclesys.com/SupportFiles/attach/SUPPORTED_DEVICES_FOR_AVID_EDITOR_PRODUCTS.pdf

     

    I have not tried 3.5 yet.  I am still running 3.1.3.  Has anyone tried the 1080p 23.976 project in Avid MC 3.5?

    Starting with MC 3.5 1080p/23.976 was supported. The Supported Devices document details what is supported.

    Re: SONY Z7U 1080 PROGRESSIVE M2T IMPORT?

    So, does MC 3.5 have a NEW project type called 1080p/23.976 HDV, or is this new HDV format supported in the old 1080p/23.976 project type?

    This is important because in the old 1080p/23.976 project type, you would be able to easily mix shots from other formats like XDCAM & HDCAM.

    But if there's a NEW project type called 1080p/23.976 HDV, then how do you transcode & import the clips to a 1080p/23.976 project?

    Anybody know this stuff?

    Re: SONY Z7U 1080 PROGRESSIVE M2T IMPORT?

    There's a 1920x1080 and 1440x1080 raster type. Any raster can be combined into the same project type, but selecting the same raster as the video will dramatically improve performance.

    Re: SONY Z7U 1080 PROGRESSIVE M2T IMPORT?

    So, if most of my footage is shot in HDCAM/23.976, then I should make the project with a 1920x1080 raster. Right? And importing (or capturing?) the 1440x1080p/23.976 should be no problem?

    I noticed, in the PDF of supported formats, it says 1080p/23.976 HDV Digital Cut is NOT supported. But are other digital cuts (say to HDCAM tape) supported?
