Cool, according to Media Info, those raw files are progressive. (Which is what makes sense to me, and what the file looks like when I play through it.) When I drop the same file into Final Cut, it com

by Doug Weiner 6 years ago

I have the same problem, and just bite the bullet and separate out folder manually into bite size chunks. I have a Cache-A unit, which can also span tapes, but if you lose one of those tape in a span

by Eric Weiner 8 years ago
