    Panasonic AF100 AMA workflow

    I just want to confirm that there is no way to work with the files from this camera with MC 5.5.3 nativly AMA import...one has to import these files the old fasion way?

    Thanks

    this camera works with the AVCHD format... so you are right, until now in MC 5, you can only import it the old fashion (and slow ) way... no AMA yet.

    Re: Panasonic AF100 AMA workflow

    Thanks for the confirmation.  I hope they are working on an update that supports it.  BTW does the panasonic converter that they took off there website just rewrap the files or does it actualy compress them further when converting fles to P2?

    Currently the best method is a direct import.  Anything else is a waste of time and does not improve image quality.

    AVCHD Spanned clips.

    It is well known spanned clips take enormous time to import/ingest

    How big or long must a take be before it will span?

    It would be useful to know how to avoid them.

    Re: Panasonic AF100 AMA workflow

    Generally 4GB is the max file size for a FAT32 clip.  The bit rate of the codec will determine how much material you can record in a 4GB file.  Until you can do some research, figure about 12 minutes or less until the clip spans over to another file.  Your actual mileage may vary...

    Re: Panasonic AF100 AMA workflow

    Our experience with the AF-100 is anything over 15 minutes will span.  I have the camera guys stop during long interviews during a question every 15 minutes or so to start a fresh new file.  This has worked for us thus far.

    Re: Panasonic AF100 AMA workflow

    I've been using a program called clipwrap to import my large spanned clips, it creates a single file and transcodes to ProRes or various DNxHD.

    Not sure if that would help, just thought I'd suggest it.

    Sometimes its nice not to have to stop recording! Smile

    Hi tawliff..... link right to the .mts files.  Everything else can be ignored.  The same files you used to import, you now link to.
