    Green screen import from Panasonic CX-10 files

    I need to import media shot with a Panasonic AG-CX10. The files are .MOV, 4K HEVC at 50fps. Media Composer 2020.10 will not allow me to link to them through the source browser, offering Import only. When imported the audio is fine but the video gives the green screen typical of unrecognized codec issues.

    After Effects does recognize the files and will render them out in DNxHR format that I can then link to in Avid, but it will take too long - I have 73 files I need to get into Avid!

    Any ideas how I can get these into Media Composer quicker? I'm sure there must be an easier way...

    Using Media Composer 2020.10 Win10

    Hello,

    you will not be happy with the HEVC codec even if it manages to connect using ama.

    (http://www.nablet.com/products/plugins/avid-media-composer/hevc-ama-plugin/).

    HEVC is a highly compressed long GOP codec, completely unsuitable for editing. Transcoding to DNxHR is the best thing you can do. It doesn't matter if in MC or in an external program. If you own a camera, I recommend a different recording format (test formats).

    V.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yep, agreed on HEVC. The camera and format choice wasn't mine, I just received the footage to work with. I contacted Avid support this morning and they too pointed me to the plugins. Fortunately Adobe Media Encoder seems to fly through these files quicker than After Effects did. So at least I'll be importing DNx into Media Composer for the edit, fortunately.
