    Re: We need XAVC-S AMA since a year. Why is there no XAVC-S?

    Drastic has a trial version available and you can get their XAVC-S (only) plugin for $99

    or use ClipToolz as mentioned elsewhere to rewrap (not transcode). 

    Frankly - Sony is the 'bad guy' here in my opinion (if we have to do any finger pointing).

    mjolnarn:
    Yeah , tons of threads about this now , maybe these plugins should be included inside Avids own ama support pages , I don´t think that they are yet

    Re: Sony a7s MP4 AMA plugin?

    I've tried repeatedly and can't get the Drastic Plug-in to work properly.  The AMA-linked footage stutters and sticks.  This is true even with the latest MediaReactor version.  Drastic has been very responsive to this problem and I'd spend the $99 in an instant for the plug-in if the trial version worked.

    Do you usually cut with AMA linked footage or do you trancode first....I suspect AVC AMA linked footage might be very proccesor intensive

    Re: Sony a7s MP4 AMA plugin?

    I don't cut with AMA-linked footage.  I use it to log and to select clips for transcoding.  You're right: it isn't possible to cut with it in codecs such as H.264 because it's too processor-intensive.  Once you have a bunch of AMA clips on the timeline and start to work with them, the computer keeps slowing down until it just hangs, no matter how powerful the computer is.

    Does your transcoded footage stutter, too?

    Re: Sony a7s MP4 AMA plugin?

    No, not at all.  But I have to transcode to to DNxHD 145 QuickTime using Premiere Pro.  I AMA-link the transcoded file.  No problem except that the workaround is a big nuisance.

    Re: Sony a7s MP4 AMA plugin?

    So you can't AMA link and then transcode in media composer and get a smooth result?

    Re: Sony a7s MP4 AMA plugin?

    I don't remember if I've tried this since I need to watch the AMA-linked footage to log and assess it in order to decide which clips to transcode.  I'll give it a try when I have a chance and report back.

    Thx - I'm just curious - it should work according to everything I've read but the reality may be lacking...

    The transcoded footage is perfectly fine.  No problems there.

    Re: We need XAVC-S AMA since a year. Why is there no XAVC-S?

    FYI,

    There is a new version of Cliptoolz V3 that Wayne Norton has come out with for 64 bit systems.  Has some interesting tools built into it.  For $25.00 it looks good.  It can be found at

    Marriana Montague of Avid says it will be ready in the fourth quarter of 2016.
