I still use this old Camera and if the clip is longer than 4GB then the Camera splits it on storage. So if you are recording longer clips like for 1 hour you could have many clips. So the problem is when I use this longer clip on premiere timeline running Apple Silicone version the I could import only first 13minutes and I cannot see the rest of it, however when I run the Premiere as Intel version then the clip is displayed in proper length. Could this be fixed so we cann use XDCAM ex codec on Premiere pro running native on Apple Silicon?? Thank you.
We're sorry about the poor experience. Currently, XDCAMEX import is not supported on Premiere Pro running on Apple M1 devices. You may refer to this link to know more about these limitations & differences. Also, on which camera was the media captured & are you importing it using Media Browser?
Is this issue going to be fixed in a future version of Premiere or is Adobe just dropping support for this codec on Apple Silicon machines? I have a lot of archival clips in this format.
For me, the workaround is to transcode an MXF file through Sony's Catalyst Browse software using the "Same as Source" settings in that program to get a single clip from spanned sections. Slower, but works.
Sumeet, thanks for the response.
Is Adobe dropping support for the XDCAM-EX codec completely or is a resolution in the works?
We have a massive back catalog of projects using that codec and this is a fatal blow to our workflow.
Same problem here, wondering if anyone found a way to fix this issue.
Nothing's changed. Usually, legacy formats aren't given much attention until support drops entirely. Just be glad it still works in the timeline with the MXF workaround. You could also convert to Prores or Avid's codec if you prefer.
I found a solution. Install EditReady app for mac and cose Rewrap preset. Drag folder in this app and convert. It will just copy files and make mov container format but it will also combine all separate parts of a long clip into single clip. Then just import to premiere and start editing on Apple Silicon.
