POVhd Generic H264 import, log and transfer?
I have just purchased a Vio POVhd headcam which produces H264.mov up to 1080p resolution.
It records onto a 32GB SD card. The pictures are pretty amazing.
I can import from the card into my computer directly and convert to Prores etc to edit with.
(FCP will play the H264 directly on my timeline , just. good enough if there are long clips to top and tail, then conform to an editing format, but a conversion before import is recommended.
(I find streamclip better than compressor, it crashes less when batch converting a lot of files.)
Th SD card has: DCIM ,CHUNKS (empty), TAGS ( contains optional in-camera produced files around tag points) folders.
The DCIM folder contains the recorded .mov clips together with with an associated .xml file which holds tag information in the form of:
<?xml version=”1.0″ ?>
1. Is there a generic import template to “log and transfer” H264 files. from a DCIM folder
If not an any one point me to anything about how to write my own?
2. Is there any easy way of combining the above .xml file into a fcp readable format so these tags can be shown as markers on my clips?
( I could import the file, xml export it, then add markers, in frames, manually…… easy not!)
