DAV's TechTable by David K Helmly WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s New ?
With Premiere Pro CS3
and the 3.2.0 update, you can now natively Ingest, and Edit SonyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s XDCAM (DVCAM), XDCAM HD, and XDCAM EX format. Just as you would expect from Adobe and the Premiere Pro team, just drag and drop directly from the card into the Project Panel and start editing. No need to transcode your video with Ã¢â‚¬Å“wackyÃ¢â‚¬ single platform codecÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s and no need to worry about .mov and .avi files Ã¢â‚¬â€œ just edit ! There are also more updates to the MPEG-2 (HDV) editing modes. For more info jump to the Ã¢â‚¬Å“WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s New in the 3.2.0 release?Ã¢â‚¬ section and read about new Fixes, Known Issues, and more. With SonyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s XDCAM EX format, making quick rough cuts directly from your Sony EX camera is a snap . YES - you can edit directly from the Sony SxS Pro card in your laptop or a simple USB 2.0 cable connected to your camera
. When you return to your studio, simply copy the Premiere Pro project file from your laptop to your desktop via a standard USB2.0 Thumb drive or Network connection. read more...
