Re: How to batch import XDCAM EX MP4 files into Final Cut Pro with Calibrated Software EX MP4 Plugin.

This was a great tutorial (though I too wish there had been audio).

quick question: I tried this using the trial plugin, liked it, bought it, activated the software license, restarted....yet I'm still in demo mode (can only see first 30 seconds of footage).

have contacted Calibrated Software, yet haven't heard back. am sort of in a time crunch. any ideas?

Could not get the audio to work, but could follow the onscreen instructions for a very successful outcome. Thanks very much Craig. Much quicker than via the Sony XDCAM Browser.

There is no audio in this tutorial. I thought the on screen text would be sufficient. Just a personal note, but I sometimes find audio in tutorials to be a distraction from the pictures. Sometimes using my ears distracts my eyes much as some like reading in very quiet environments.

Maybe I should start a "quiet tutorial" movement.

As we know, Final Cut Pro is a non-linear and non-destructive editing software application, it can only import non-destructive video format including DV, HDV, P2 MXF (DVCProHD), XDCAM, and 2K film formats. Nevertheless, the widely used MP4 is lossy format, which is a final delivery file type and is heavily compressed. In order to successfully import MP4 to Final Cut Pro, we have to convert the lossy MP4 to non-destructive format like DV which is compatible with FCP.

just google search Step by Step Guide on How to Convert MP4 to DV so as to Import MP4 into FCP/FCE

you will find a powerful converter and a step by step guide on how to convert and import mp4 to fcp

NEVER convert a nice XDCAM EX file to DV, which will result in significant loss, for post production. NEVER!. Convert to Apple ProRes or Uncompressed. Absolutely HORRIBLE suggestion.

Calibrated Software EX MP4 Plugin
by Jacob von Kreuz
Hi Craig,

Ive just tried the procedure you kindly made available here. It works but it just doesn't show all the folder nor any files in the only one (first of the list) that appears. Im wondering if that's because I don't have the plugin. If that is the reason, would please tell me where i can get this plugin?

Thanks again,

Jacob
Don't forget ClipBrowser
by Craig Seeman
The above video shows you how to make the EX MP4.

The next step would be to import the MP4 into Sony ClipBrowser. That will make the full BPAV folder. Keep in mind due to FAT32 file limit, the MP4 can't be more than 4GB. You'd have to make separate sequences/outputs for that.

Sony doesn't seem to provide a way to create an .SMI needed to join files so that the multiple 4GB files would play back as a single clip as they do when you shoot.
