I am in the middle of editing a TV spot we create bi-weekly and therefore on a tight timeline. I am using Premiere Pro CC (2014) just upadted last week on Win8.1, 4790k, 16GB, OS SSD 256GB, Project Drive 1TB SSD, Export and Preview Drive 3TB Seagate 7200. They shot this particular spot in a studio with different cameras. So I recieved files in: XDCAM HD 1080 422 i60 50mb CBR 1920x1080 - 1888x1062
My understanding is that XDCAM is supported natively in PPro, however, when I try to import into Premiere or add to Media Encoder I recieve error: "Codec missing or unavailable".
I asked a friend to re-encode it as ProRes rather than spend time figuring out -what I assumed was a codec issue. But the ProRes 422 LT that he exported I get error: "The importer reported a generic error". I'll say that I've been using prores on this same system a bunch of times, however it was a different possibly less savey person who did this transcode and so it is possibly still suspect.
These files were live edited on some box so the file is over an hour long.. could it be a RAM issue? I've jogged my page file up to a static 120GB..
I am able to play the prores files on a second laptop that has no adobe suite installed.. but still cannot export them from quicktime as something else. I get an error.
