    Sony AVCHD

    I'm using MC5.5 and I'm considering purchasing the Sony NX5U camera recording in Sony's AVCHD format. Does Sony have a "quick" conversion program like Panasonic does for getting these files into the Avid quickly. Importing is like watching paint dry.

     

    Thanks

    All the clips I have tried from AX2000 came into MC fine.

    They are faster than RT.

    I don't know about this one but I could imagine Sony to use the same codec.

    Re: Sony AVCHD

    It's beginning to look like Sony's AVCHD is a very different breed of codec. I've had a lot of compatibility probs with PCM audio encoding and the Sony AVCHD codec that comes on the NEX-FS100. Yet, there are apps that deal with it just fine...like Adobe Media Encoder, After FX CS5.5, and TmpGenc Master Works 5. I think it's a case of application technology lagging camera hardware. In time, everything will be made clear.

    Re: Sony AVCHD

    Im a underwater hobbyist with a Sony Nex 5 which imports fine using DNxHD 120 (HD 1080i)

    Obviously a lower format than the NX5, but still quicker than capturing from tape.

    Would love an NX5 though.

    Sorry cant be of much help.

    Regards
