  • XDCAM EX 1080p Project settings?

    Where are the 1080p25 and 1080p30 projects Presets?

    The Sony EX1 shoots 1920x1080p25 and 1920x1080p30? EDIUS supports the HDCAM EX, so it should support these Projects settings.

    Is anyone shooting with the EX1?

    My understanding on this is limited. Since you have not had a response I will take a shot at it.
    Neither of these are available in Broadcast. I do believe that they will be available in the next version. But, Do not hold me to that.
    I did read that some of the EX frame rates would be supported in the next version. I just do not know which one.

    This is the case where the camera does more, at least at the moment, than the software that can edit it.

    If it was only a case of 1920x1080 24p to playback out through NX or SP,
    I would just say change your setting to 29.97 and do your edits, then switch back to 24p for your final.
    If you are wanting to do Blu-ray with the final, you might want to think about shooting in 24p. It is the only true "p" at 1920x1080.
    If you want 50p (conversion would be easy 2x 25p) you can get that at 1280x720, as well as the 24p.
    This way you have one frame rate all the way through the project.

      I'm glad -- in a way -- that you confirm there are no presets. I'm really surprised that one can't simply change the Frame-rate of a Preset.

      It makes no sense to me to have to buy V5 just to be able to get two copies of the 1080p23.98 Preset: one with a frame rate of 25 and one with a frame rate of 29.97.

      The lack of a 1080p25 Preset is a killer since that is the only P mode for 1920x1080 shooting in Region 50. Yes, they could shoot 24p, but historically they don't.

        EDIUS has traditionally been hardware-oriented, meaning that it only allows project settings that the output hardware supports. It still is, though the OHCI modes are slowly moving a little away from that. A lot of EDIUS's speed comes from its direct tie-in with the hardware (so there's no translation required between), but that comes with the current inability to edit in non-video-centric modes and modes that the hardware doesn't support.

        As for changing project framerates, there's a feature request for that, but in my discussions with engineering it's not an easy feat due to the fact that it changes the timescale of everything in the timeline (keyframes, cut points, etc).

          EDIUS presets are built around a specific output medium. This is how it has been since the beginning - it is bound to hardware devices first and foremost. A request for 'free form' project settings has already been submitted.

          There is only one tailored EX-1 preset in v4.61 - 1920x1080/24p. Keep in mind that EX implementation in 4.x was added entirely for free. So in a sense, you're getting use of the format earlier than originally planned.

          Full frame 25p and 30p presets will arrive with the next release. If you don't think this is worth the money to upgrade, that's entirely up to you to decide.

          In the meantime, the options above are valid workarounds. As are using 1440x1080/30p and 1440x1080/25p presets.
