xdcam EX multiclip needs render to view & edit
I’m doing a 3 camera multiclip edit with XDCAM EX 1080i/29.97, 35 mbs vbr, footage and when I put my multiclip on the timeline using safe rt/dynamic I get a red bar and it needs rendering to view. In unlimited RT/dynamic playback I get a yellow bar, but the quality is too poor to make edit decisions on focus etc..
I haven’t done a multiclip for several months, but it seems that using DVCPRO HD, I didn’t run into this problem. Am I missing something basic that would be obvious to anyone “with a clue”?
