    Wow I wish I had this yesterday as it seems to fix the random clip order where you select the clips, having them in numerical order is great. I changed the clip reference label for many different products on a table top shoot and I imported them into their own folders and had to search through the random clip order to separate them and now the clips are in order of when they were shot.
    I’m not sure what else was fixed but it is much better to have the clips in numerical order.
    If any other fixes were made please post them.

    [Michael Palmer] “Wow I wish I had this yesterday”

    Sony UK had this posted a few days back Sony USA is (and has been) days behind the other Sony regions. Sony USA also makes it REALLY HARD to find the updates IMHO.

    [Michael Palmer] “If any other fixes were made please post them.”
    If only Sony made all this clear with a What’s New fixes and enhancements. They did add support for XDCAM HD 422.

    Just to be clear the Transfer Tool is not just for the EX series. It’s for all XDCAM transfer with Final Cut Pro.

    Release notes:


    PDZ-KP1 XDCAM Transfer version 2.7

    This version of XDCAM Transfer features the following:

    1. Adds support for the new XDCAM HD 422 products which record using 50 Mbps MPEG-2

    PDW-HD1500 XDCAM HD 422 Deck
    PDW-700 XDCAM HD 422 Camcorder

    Note: Although this version can be used with older versions of Final Cut Pro, you must
    use Final Cut Pro version 6.03 to in order for XDCAM Transfer to recognize the 50 Mbps
    HD content recorded on the disc (and to edit the material).

    2. Qualified for use on both Tiger and Leopard (Mac OS X version 10.4.11 or later)

    3. Continues to supports the use of the following products with Final Cut Pro as before:

    PMW-EX XDCAM EX Camcorder (Requires Final Cut Pro version 6.02)
    PDW-U1 USB 2.0 XDCAM Drive (Requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or higher)

    4. This version also installs the Leopard qualified FAM driver for the optical XDCAM products:

    Standard Definition XDCAM Camcorders and Decks

    XDCAM HD Camcorders and Decks



    XDCAM HD 422 Camcorders and Decks



    5. Bug Fix: This version enables XDCAM EX clips which were shot with timecode mode set to CLOCK to be recognized
    and imported into Final Cut Pro. In previous versions, XDCAM Transfer would display the error message:
    “Error There is no timecode calculator in timecode track builder”.
