  • XDCAM Proxy


    When importing proxy from XDCAM PDW-530P (SD) I have no possibility of entering metadata to assign a REEL NAME for my clips from the particular XDCAM disk.

    The result - If I have a project edited from 50 XDcam disks, when I want to high res the material, the 'proxy handling' feature asks for each disk with a unique ID. The ID is not visible on the disk. It is only visible in the clip path of the associated (imported) files. So the only way I can find the relevant disk for the up res, is to search through all my material for a file with a matching ID. Hopefully I have given this clip some prefix or folder name that links it to the 1 of the 50 disks I have in a stack on my desktop.

    The better way would be for Edius keep a database over unique ID's, & to ask for a REEL NAME each time it recieves a disk with an ID it has not seen before, linking the REEL NAME to the ID. This way the proxy handling process could look up the REEL NAME & could ask me for it instead of the ID. (BIG time saver)


    Is consolidate with XDCAM working the way it should? Of course, If I up res a timeline with a clip of 2 seconds from a file of 20 minutes - proxy handling will up res the whole 20 minute file and not just the 2 seconds I need. (BIG space saver)

    Good ideas. Please add them to the Feature Requests section.

    For now, the easiest way to handle your problem currently is to use the "Prefix" option to assign a clip name prefix to clips you import.
