i use mxf import plugin to do it.
so I can choose whether to convert or just drag the clip to my timeline without convert.
I use fcpx10.0.9 and fcpx 10.1.1.
there's a large amount of 4K 50p XAVC 30mins long clips in my project
when I want to use all the clip, I just copy the clip from sxs+ card to the raid and drag it to my timeline
when I only want to use the 10seconds of 30 minutes
I use the fcpx to convert the clip
that can save my disk space a lot
we use mac pro:
1 5770 card or 1 K5000 card
USB3.0&ESATA 6Gbps card for mac
Promise 3TB*24 Raid for 1 mac pro
Aja knoa 3G card
Sony F55 to shoot.
we use 4K 25P timeline to edit for more editing speed.
Output 25p SDI signal to Sony HD monitor when editing.
Sometimes check 4K 25p singal to Sony 4K monitor.
For HD broadcast, we output 25i SDI signal to Sony HD monitor, first we will copy our finish timeline to 4K 50p, do some check on 4K monitors dragging pointer in timeline
then copy the finish timeline to HD 25i render to HD25i.
I've test the 50p to 50i interlaced render of FCPX for fast dancing clips, it's good.
thanks a lot for your immediate answer. As I could see you use all this equipment for professional use while I don't use it for a professional purpose. I bought the 4k sony camcorder fdr-ax1, the 4k Sony Tv and the new Mac Pro quad core last week. At the moment my desire is to use this equipment to watch at the end of an editing process my video movies on my 4k TV connecting the Mac Pro via HDMI. But the results are not as I expected. Do you have any advice for me to use at the best my equipment? Every thing now seems to be complicated because maybe the connection via HDMI is not the best solution. Do you think we have to wait for Sony or somebody else when will produce a 4K video recorder -just like the HD Models-? Sony will introduce in a few months to the world market a consumer 4k camcorder FDR-AX100. How they expect the consumers can edit the video clips considering the enormous number of data due to this 4k standard -for istance Sony Vaio i7 has the software Vegas Pro 12 but not " enough power" to deal with 4k- and how they can watch the video movie on a 4k TV? Who knows?
