    I was just in B&H IN NY (Wow is that an experience) and they looked up when the release date was for them to have it, and they said any day now.

    For what it's worth, I've heard that the mid-quality recording mode on the EX1 is fully HDV compatible, so if necessary you could record in HDV and capture via Firewire to the HQ format for a workflow we know works today. That would also give you more recording time than the full quality mode, so could be useful for event videography.

    Rusty: if you hear of any way we can get our hands on an EX1 for testing purposes, let me know. We have SPVA meetings scheduled for November 28 and January 9, so either of those would be a good date to have the camera available.

    I've never seen P2 Select start automatically, and I actually use that every time because I have a Panasonic HVX200 -- P2 Select doesn't appear in the System Tray until I run it from the Capture menu. If I work on an existing project and don't capture new material into it, then P2 Select doesn't start.

    XD Select on the other hand always wants to start as soon as I open Edius: Lame with a capital L! I'm a software engineer by trade and would be embarrased by something like that -- I'd like to slap my colleague in Japan upside the head with a sliderule!

    I have begged several times for them to make the XD Select startup optional, but no luck so far.

    I sure hope Eduis can read these New Sony files or at least the converted MXF files.
    The camera will come with transfer/browser software that lets you transfer native < mp4 wrapped files > or convert to MXF wrapped files.
    I have tried loading a native file from the Ex-1 < mp4 wrapped > and Eduis will NOT load/play the file.
    I have a camera ordered and hope a Eduis update will be soon.

    Not sure what to say there.
    My P2 Select starts up sometimes. I can't quite figure the rhyme or reason tho.
    My XD Select always starts.

    I'm sure there's a reason whether or not it makes sense in the mind of the observer.

    The reason why P2 and XD Select run automatically in the background is to enable the background transfer.

    I do agree that there should be an option to disable this behavior.

    To be honest, I have absolutely no idea what the final product will be like, behaviour-wise.

    I hope the developers don't implement the bit where the tool always starts up when Edius is launched unless you rename the executable...

    The actual editing side of things is the same as always.

    Thanks Kenneally,

    I'd like to get one of these in Q1 '08.

    But I'd like to familiarize myself with the XDCAM work flow and see if my systems are up to snuff. Unfortunately, the GV website shows XDCAM support, but comes up short on the work flow end. (Unless I missed something)

    Thanks for the help.

    Rusty
    I probably should have anticipated the soooooon.

    It has been stated numerous times, that EX support is currently being worked on and is expected to be released within the next major 4.x point release.

    Sony XDCAM EX – PMW-EX1

    This weekend during a Same-Day Edit we got the opportunity to use a Sony HVRDR60. Needless to say I was fairly floored by the performance of the unit and impressed that it recorded DV and HDV simultaneously! 25 min. of DV (.avi) transfered in <5 min.! The downside of this drive appears to be that it is FAT32, and divides files. While I don't think we encountered this last Sat., it may be an issue in the future!

    Back on topic...
    While I'm not the biggest fan of Sony, I work in SonyLand every day and because of what I'm hearing about this camera I'm very tempted to spring for one.

    Does anyone know the current state of Edius working with these cameras and a workflow? I'm mostly interested in the functionality for Same-Day Edits. Perhaps a link to GV info would be helpful.

    Thanks, Rusty

    DD,
    Can you say "Proxy?"
    I know I'd like to for this camera!
    Background conversion would be great!

    thanks guys.... but what about RT performance? full raster in a format other than Canopus HQ might limit us to only 1 maybe 2 layers, and mega prebuffering before playback even on powerboxes! The current workflow for the EX-1 seems to be:
    Drag and drop the native files which are wrapped as mp4's < not currently read in Eduis >
    OR copy and convert to MXF via Sony's Clip Browser sw that will ship with the camera.
    Either way, the added resolution and compression seems to scream max CPU usage!
    I wonder if converting to CanopusHQ will be something we must think about?
