Select MPEG2 MXF as your format; XDCAM export options are available there.
That's exactly the preset i used... Still the xdcam hd machine won't accept the file i get out of that.
Help me out.
You're trying to FTP the export to a deck for recording?
Sorry if i was a bit fast in my initial posting. i'm trying to get a workflow like this:
1. Use the PDZ-1 Software from Sony to get the footage from the deck via FTP
2. Edit it with After Effects, Premiere, whatever
3. Export it as XDCAM HD and transfer it back on a disc vie FTP and PDZ-1
Steps 1 and 2 work as they should but the deck refuses to accept the files i get in step 3.
Try taking the FTP out of the equation.
The problem is that i can't really do that. Ethernet (and FTP along with that) is the only way to get a connection to the XDCAM HD machine from that work station. It has no built in hd video card as it's not meant for editing. It was built for vfx stuff and is supposed to get and deliver files as file transfer.
The problem seems to be partly solved. I got an USB XDCAM drive for test purposes and it works fine with my files. It's no problem with the codec but seems to be a problem within the Sony software (or me using it wrong).
I'll talk to them now...
For the deck to see it it has to appear as the correct folder structure.
xdcam browser from sony can provide the structure required.
drag all your xdcam MXF clips into the explorer then load them into the preview side
they will be then put into separate folders w xml and folder structure.
gather these folders into a folder and you will have essentially an xdcam disk
xmls created as well
There is a readme regarding ftp with the software
It has no built in hd video card
Ah. I'd recommend correcting that. Hook the deck up directly.
