PMW-EX1 – use regen timecode

Free run TC may confuse XDCAM Transfer

A post on the Cinematography Mailing List yesterday indicates that XDCAM Transfer may not see all the clips on an SxS card if the EX1’s timecode was set to “clock” mode, one of the free run options. Sony is reportedly going to address this issue with an updated version of XDCAM Transfer. For now, it appears the safe thing to do for now is to leave the EX1’s timecode in regen mode. UPDATE 2008-03-06: Version 2.5.1 fixes this bug.
