“Does anyone know how to do this? We’ve shot a ton of media from a Sony EX3 camera and recorded it out the HD-SDI to a NanoFlash. Our Avid workflow isn’t working out so well, and we’re considering editing on FCP instead. Has anyone worked with this kind of media in FCP before?”

Tip: Click the “Settings” button and set proper video/ audio parameters. My advice is to set the video size, bitrate and fame rate to be exactly as the footages so that you will suffer least quality degradation. For example, when the video is shot at 1920*1080, 50mbps, 30fps, you could set Size-1920*1080, Bitrate-original, Frame rate-30. If you would like to use default settings, simply skip this step.
