    Sony PMW-350 XDCAM EX footage does not import into PP CS4

    SiliconPixel Level 1

      I have the new Sony PMW-350 XDCAM EX camera - just tried importing a load of footage shot last week - importing the raw MP4 files from the media browser just like EX3 footage that I edit all the time in the same way.

       

      Unfortunately, the video imports but no audio. The clip shows a single mono channel but no audio data in it (i.e. no sound at all).

       

      If I convert to MXF using the Sony Clip Browser, it seems to work OK though.

       

      I guess this footage in it's native form is just incompatible with PPro - anyone else tried this?

       

      Also, I recently installed Windows 7 64 bit on one of my edit PC's - this behaves even worse and on playback of the clips will hang. Even the MXF files hang. Not done much troubleshooting yet in W7 though, so there could be something else contributing to the problem.
