    I don’t know of anyone using it. In the small market where I am it’s Resolve, Premiere, Avid and FCPX. I posted the news release somewhat tongue in cheek in that they’re naming it “Edius X”.Grinning

    For what it’s worth…the FX9 is not on the list of supported cameras.

    Alister Chapman reports an issue with FX9 footage on his XDCAM-User blog.

    If you are a mac user and especially of you use it to edit footage from a Sony camera I recommend that you do not upgrade the operating system to OSX 10.15.6, Pro Video Codecs to 2.1.2 or upgrade FCP-X to version 10.4.9 at this time.

    At the moment there is clearly an issue with footage from the FX9 after these updates. It is not clear whether this is due to the new Pro Video Codecs package 2.1.2 that is comes as part of the update to OSX 10.15.6 or whether it is just related to the FCP-X 10.4.9 update. Some users are reporting that some FX9 MXF files can not be previewed in Finder after updating as well as not being visible in FCP-X.

    While so far it I have only seen reports that footage from the FX9 is affected, but it wouldn’t surprise me if Venice material is also affected.

    I would suggest waiting for a few weeks after the release of any update before updating and never do an update half way through an important project.

    I have a Sony PXW-X70, but didn’t update FCP X yet. Catalina is at 10.15.6. I am between video projects and was about to do the update.

    I’m using Affinity Photo to create simple graphic screens for video, such as corporate or government agency logos for end credits. I’m not anti Adobe, just can’t justify the subscription. Affinity Photo replaces PS CS6. One cool feature allows you to export a PSD file for FCP X, my NLE of choice.

    Prior to its release, I downloaded the beta of Affinity Publisher – their desktop publishing app à la InDesign. Participating in the beta qualified me for a half price offer on launch. I couldn’t refuse. My desktop publishing experience is limited to a few brochures and flyers in Pages, and Pagemaker on the Amiga. I’ve created a trifold marketing brochure for myself in Publisher, which my graphics and designer friends gave me high marks on.

    Affinity’s amazing StudioLink allows you to move between their three apps without having to export/save, import. Designer (Illustrator like) is the third app. As an example, you’re working on a layout in Publisher and want to alter a photo. Clicking on the StudioLink button transforms the interface to Photo.

    With a move a 2019 iMac 27″ last fall, I had to find a replacement for Lightroom 6, which Adobe no longer supports. It’s not compatible with Catalina either. I found ON1 Photo Raw 2020, which allowed me to migrate my Lightroom catalogue and serves as a DAM. I was able to keep the folder structure that began with LR 1.

    ON1 has just released a free photo app that gives you manual settings and RAW processing on your phone. It’s available for Apple and Android and allows you to tie in with ON1 360, their cloud based service for a fee. The app works as a standalone, so no purchase is necessary. I downloaded it to my original iPhone SE, but haven’t had time to play with it.

    The other thing I just thought of is the Sony XAVC/XDCAM Plug-in for Apple.
    You can find it here: https://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/pdzk-lt2

    Okay, so it’s not the Pro Video Formats – I’ve got the same 2.1.1.

    My camera card structure from the Sony PXW-X70 is different.
    There are two folders – AVF_INFO and PRIVATE and an AVCHD file.
    Inside the PRIVATE folder we find three more folders: M4ROOT, SONY AND XDROOT
    What camera are you using? Is this a new problem?

    I’ve got nothing else other than to suggest trashing Preferences, empty Trash and restart Mac.

    I would suggest copying the entire card structure into a folder rather than just the XDROOT folder to eliminate the possibility of some file information not being copied.

    I would double check Pro Video Formats is in fact updated.

    Verify installation of Pro Video Formats

    Make sure Pro Video Formats for Final Cut Pro X, Motion, and Compressor is installed, install Pro Video Formats, and check for updates.

    Pro Video Formats provides support for Final Cut Pro X, Motion, and Compressor to work with a variety of video formats, including MXF files. Use System Information to see if Pro Video Formats is installed, and if so which version:

    Press and hold the Option key, then choose Apple menu  > System Information.
    From the Software section of the sidebar, select Installations.
    To sort items in alphabetical order, click the Software Name column heading so the arrow is pointing up.
    Scroll down until you see Pro Video Formats in the Software Name column. The Version column shows the version number of the corresponding Pro Video Formats software.

    To install or update Pro Video Formats on a Mac that uses macOS Mojave, use Software Update in System Preferences.*

    Is the camera card being formatted in camera? Formatting the camera card on the computer as FAT16 invokes the 2GB file size limit.

    I’ve been working with XDCAM files in FCPX for five years without issue. The current job I’m working on has several clips over 2GB, so it’s not a FCPX issue.

    You may want to check to see if in fact Prov Video Formats was installed.

    How to get updates for macOS Mojave or later
    If you’ve upgraded to macOS Mojave or later, follow these steps to keep it up to date:
    Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu , then click Software Update to check for updates.
    If any updates are available, click the Update Now button to install them. Or click ”More info” to see details about each update and select specific updates to install.

    Were the XDCAM files imported from the camera card or were they copied to your computer?

    What OS are you running?

    Make sure you’re running the latest Pro Video formats from Apple.
