    AVC Intra vs XD Cam playback

    CBJDave Level 1

      I'm trying to figure out why I'm getting such varried results with AVC Intra 100/50 and XDCam clips.  I'm in an arena production environment with a variety of sources and while I think AVC-I 100 should be my codec of choice, I just don't seem to get the performance I'm expecting.


      For example, I shoot 720p AVC-I 100 & 50 as well as DVCPro HD on P2.  I'm import everything through the media browser and all my clips come in with the yellow playback indicator and stutter unless rendered.  I create my sequences by dragging the first clip onto "New Item" icon in the bin so as to make sure the setting match.


      I also bring in 720p XDCam 50 MXF files from an EVS XT Access transcoder and a Grass Valley K2 with Dyno Elite.  Those clips come in with no render indicators and play back completely smoothly.


      Is this typical of P2 workflows?


      I have pretty high end hardware.

      Thanks for any insight you might be able to provide.
