“Is anyone working with media recorded on GFPak via an Ikegami GFCam HDS-V10? We just started working with the Adobe production suite, and I can’t seem to find any reference to the best way to import clips recorded to a GFPak. In Avid, the GFPak mxf (which I believe is similar but not identical to XDCAM) must be transcoded to a different codec to allow for playback and storage. Does anyone have a workflow suggestion for removing clips from the GFPak to the storage harddrive, and what format/codec conversion might suit the clips’ playback best?”
