I am about to start a project shooting on Sony FX6 and FX9.  I haven't cut a sony project in a long time.  Back in the day you use to have to convert the Sony footage before you can edit.  One of the many things I love about Premiere is that it seem to handle any footage that I dump into it.  Will this be the case with the Sony footage?  Is there anythign I should know about the footage coming from these cameras?  Is there anything that I should tell the DP about settings that will make my workflow better?

Yes, transcode to ProRes.


Also, be sure that your Sequence Video Previews are set to the same settings.

Depending on the camera settings for which flavor of Sony encoding the DP chooses, it ... might ... work just fine. Warren's comment is in general, wise.

 

Like anything else, it's best to completely test all variables out before shooting the actual job begins. Both the shooting variables such as format/codec/ISO & such, and then post testing of the resultant clips. Then you know the ISO limits that will be acceptable among other things. And which format/codec works best for this job.
