  • Sony XAVC L codec

    I'm getting a new camera and having been studying and shopping for a year. I use Edius Work Group 8. I don't want to take anything for granted. In the past that has cost me dearly. I see at the Grass Valley website, it does say that Edius 8 now does support Sony XAVC intra as well as XAVC L & XAVC S.
    I'm wanting to maybe buy the Sony Z90V because of the 4.22 10 1080HD option and it's broadcast quality specs at 1080. I'm not a broadcast pro now but perhaps someday soon I will be. I'm a rookie now, but study intensely for many years. Please weigh in if someone with a grand amount of experience has any advice or direction on this matter. Also I Considered the xf400 by Canon since I don't really need the SDI output on the xf405.

    So my question is: Will my Edius 8 work group handle these files which are supposed to be difficult to handle. The video review I saw on these codecs was from 2016 (a full 3 years ago) said machines and software platforms had a hard time with them. The threads I found here in the form appear to be older and I don't really understand them so well as they all digress. I often use a 2 camera timeline with 2 or more audio tracks. My computer is new and up to par. You can see it. Thank You.

    On my previous edit PC with i7 4770K CPU and 16GB Memory and E8 WG I had UHD 50p XAVC-I 10bit clips in an HD 50p project and they only just played back without having to render. However UHD (4K) 50p XAVC-L being highly compressed may need to be converted to HQX or use proxy files if used on my i7 4770K machine.

    Using XAVC-L HD 10 bit files in an HD Project may playback okay especially on your newer PC, but hopefully other users can confirm this. I do not have any XAVC-L clips to test as I only shoot in XAVC-I UHD 50p. However you always have the option to convert to HQX (but time consuming and extra storage drive space) or if using the WG version to change the playback quality/resolution.

    It may be helpful to confirm the exact CPU being used and if you are likely to use UHD (4K) clips. Peter

      Thanks Peter

      Thanks for the reply. I did post in the post that I am using Work Group 8. Also all my computer specs are at the bottom of my post in my signature. No worry. I was looking for someone who uses the Long Gop Files to see how they they flowed on Edius. Of course intra files are the way to go but those cameras are pricey. I'm still looking and researching.

        Primary Colour corrector plus XAVCL 3840x2160 is really difficult
