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.
An HP Z820 with two Xeon E5-2670 procs. 48 gigs of RAM, Quadro 4000 and AJA Kona 3. I'm editing from a 32TB Editshare with gigabit network.
Thanks for any insight you might be able to provide.
