Sorry to re-post guys but this may just be down to a preferred terminology by certain members: Is "wrapping a file" just a changing of file extension in order to be recognized by FCP?? from .mvx to .mov for example??
I'm pretty new at all things HD(V) and am making the transition in March to the AG-HVX200 as my premium format. I'm waiting a while for the launch of the PAL version plus any more info on related P2 storage hardware. I have been shooting underwater for 15 years on MiniDV cameras and in an industry where "Keeping up with the Jones" is paramount I will be adopting this camera as my recording format. I have all of the housing, lenses and lighting equipment arranged for the unit.
I read earlier in one particular post that when transferring the raw footage (I'll be shooting underwater in DVCProHD) to a computer (I use Macs) that in order to introduce them into FCP the raw files need to be "wrapped" as QuickTime files in order for FCP to recognise and be able to work with them. What is "wrapping" and how is it accomplished?
The issue also raises a later point discussed in the forum with regards to QuickTime (I have QT 7) that it tries to play around with the Gamma settings of the footage as it thinks it knows the best settings for the footage. How can this tampering by QT be neutralized?
I plan to shoot with either the FireStore FS-100 or Cineporter (depending on which one is released first) as using two 8Gb cards will mean very short dives which can be a pain if I am in the field (about 6 to 8 months of the year) and need to continually dump to my hard drives etc. What are the download time delays for using such a drive? I plan to use maybe only 80 to 85% of the drive capacity as I won't want to fill up the drive and potentially get loss of image quality (is this being too prudent?) as the drive becomes full.
In anticipation of some constructive answers to these points, thanks and keep up the great work with regards to this wonderful resource.
