Hi all. Running FCP 6.0.2 with an Early 2008 8-Core / 8GB / 5TB / 10.5.2. All FCS updates are current.
I have XDCAM EX footage (1080/30p) that I’ve imported using the XDCAM Transfer app. I’m putting those XDCAM EX native Quicktimes into my ProRes HQ Final Cut sequence. It plays fine. But when I go to export a clip as ProRes to process in After Effects, FCP crashes or footage is missing in the exported movie.
Has anyone else run into this?
I see two workarounds:
1) Pre-processing all my EX footage to ProRes using Quicktime Player Pro. (Like to avoid this due to disk space and long processing times)
2) Export EX footage from FCP using the native EX codec, then converting it to ProRes with Quicktime Player (but this would introduce another round of EX compression, won’t it?)
You can not stay your whole life suffering a workflow like that.
You better look for the reason of your problem. As Jeff suggest, and I second, you should think about going 6.0.3.
Here is working without any problem.
