    Do we need intermediate codec to export XDCAM EX files from Premier Pro

    Puneet Malhotra

      hello ,  I have one question in mind. I have read in an article,


      Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 Workflow Guide -

      Using Adobe® Premiere® Pro CS5 with tapeless Sony XDCAM content


      This article says we do not need to transcode XDCAM EX1 or EX3 files , for editing as CS5, CS5.5 and CS6 natively supports the editing of these files.

      But when we finish a project then what we do, in which format do we export to archive the edited master. because MPEG2 and H.264 are for disrtibution purpose, but

      when we are talking of archiving then we need sobe robust format and codec. please explain me , I have searched a lot but get confused in different forums.


      All suggestions are welome.....
