I believe CS5 supports both AVC-I and DVCPRO HD, the two formats that camera records.
What sequence presets do you have available?
You are correct in that the HPX250 supports both these formats, with a variety of presets, but it still produces an MXF file which I cannot import to CS5. I checked out the Raylight Encoder, it looks like it will do the job but maybe not much of a time saver. I think some kind of third party encoder/converter is going to be needed, I'm hoping someone with a little more experience can let me know what works for them.

I'm saying I believe you should be able to if things are working normally. That you can't leads me to believe something isn't normal.
So...what sequence presets do you have available?
Thanks Jim, you got me thinking about those presets and I started monkeying with the media browser. The MXF files import cleanly through it. I was also not saving enough of the MXF contents file to my hard drive. Yeah, you need more than the audio and video. By saving the whole folder, opening in the media browser and importing from there, seems to be working like a champ. I’ve never had to go through the media browser before, but I usually deal with only with .avi or mpeg files.
Thanks again for the nudge in the right direction.
