  • Does EDIUS 4.5 support the Sony PMW-EX1?

    Does EDIUS 4.5 support the Sony PMW-EX1's HQ mode?

    That's 1920x1080 at 50i/60i and 24p/25p/30p?

    And, 1280x720 at 24p/25p/30p/50p/60p?

    If not, when will it?

    It's been stated that it will support it in 4.6, which is coming out early 2008. Some have seen it in action at a recent trade show.

    Since Edius supports Full HD (1920x1080) I don't see why it wouldn't support all the specs that the camera shoots in.

      I would be concerned about the processing (CPU) needed to digest 1920x1080 HD - I don't know if some of the filters might choke in real time.

        I didn't think Edius supported this in PAL mode?

            Any idea whether that will handle footage from the Convergent XDR recorder, with options including 1080p MPEG2 I-frame at 160 Mbps? This is a third-party accessory which could be connected to the HD-SDI outputs on the EX1 for some really high-quality HD footage:

              Without a sample clip, it's hard to tell - I do know that the MXF handling with MPEG-2 data is getting a few little additions, but whether it'll extend to the format used with this product, I'm not sure.

                The camera doesn't record at 1920x1080 50i or 59.94i

                    oh, thought it only did interlaced in HDV mode.

                      Yeah it has an HQ mode at 35mbps like the bigger XDCAM HD cameras.

                      It's still Long GOP MPEG2...

                        It would have been nice if they'd included a 50 Mbps recording option, but even at 35 Mbps the footage should look great - and you can actually distribute the results at that quality using Blu-ray discs. Plus if you get the Convergent recorder I mentioned above you could record MPEG2 I-frame at 160 Mbps, which should be about as good as any camera can do without larger sensors.

                        This camera will be a good test of the trade-offs between a high-resolution sensor with moderate bandwidth recording versus the low-res sensor in the HVX200 using high-bandwidth recording.

                          It also has HD-SDI...a nice addition.

                          Not sure if the color space is 4:2:2 for the HQ mode. I doubt it is...

                            It's 4:2:0

                            HD-SDI transfer using 24p will be captured at 59.94i with pulldown. The question though is whether the reverse pulldown export works well. In the ProCoder forum a guy said he tried it with ProCoder 3 and lost a few frames at the beginning

                              Eeek!

                              I'll wait for Panasonic to drop some competition against this camera with the AVC-Intra codec @ 4:2:2 Full HD.
