Importing XDCAM EX clips from FCP7

I'm trying to import XDCAM EX clips into PPro6 (PC) from an FCP project.  The clips were originally brought in through the Sony Browser into FCP7.  The format info is:

 

XDCAM EX 1080p30 (35 Mb/s VBR), 1,920 x 1,080 (1,888 x 1,062)

MPEG-2 Video, Linear PCM, Timecode

Total Bitrate:  35,860

Original Format:  MPEG HD

Linear PCM, 16 bit big-endian signed integer, 1 channels, 48000 Hz

Linear PCM, 16 bit big-endian signed integer, 1 channels, 48000 Hz

 

All of the clips have the .mov extension.  Here's an example of a clip label:

 

GRY40715_01.mov

 

I think the codecs are all registered - I've brought in other footage directly off the card and it reads and edits fine, so I think the XDCAM EX codecs are there.  It is only the material that has been through FCP.  The originals still play and edit fine in Final Cut.

 

Curious.  Any thoughts?

 

James

    Bring in the complete BPAV directory from the SxS cards. You don't want to use .MOV files, since it reverts the 64 bit nature of PR to 32 bits because of QuiRcktime. The original BPAV directory contains the clips with a .MP4 extension, nothing .MOV.
