Re: NEW Version 8 firmware

As far as I know, FCPX does not yet support XAVC class 480.  Maybe with the new version later this month?

Re: NEW Version 8 firmware

Okay, so now I'm ready to do my first update and the instructions say, connect to AC.  I don't have a cord, only a freshly charged battery.  I am assuming they say use power cord in case the battery dies?  I doubt it would die.  Any advice?

 

thanks, Mark

Re: NEW Version 8 firmware

Ive done 4 updates now all on fully charged battery.. yes its Sony covering there backside.. fair enough of course.. it takes about 10 mins or so.. read the instructions !.. there are 2 stages.. and the camera appears to die in the middle of them...! dont be alarmed it comes to life again.. just never switch it off.. if say after 30 mins it hasnt happened.. something is wrong.. 

Its best to fo an All Rest after the upgrade..

Re: NEW Version 8 firmware

...and of course it says No FIle Found!  I have to figure out what I did wrong.  It's v6.0 and is ******,040kb.  Does that sound right?  It's the Bin file that was extracted.

Re: NEW Version 8 firmware

I see my figure did not display...file is 67.4 MB.  I copied it directly onto the SDHC card, no folder or such...

Re: NEW Version 8 firmware

Did you format the SD card in the camera.. did you un zip the file.. had that once and i hadnt "unzipped" the BIN file .. put in top layer of card.. ie not in any folder..

Re: NEW Version 8 firmware

Yes, formatted in camera and when I chose extract, it extracted to a particular spot I picked and I then copied that file...

Re: NEW Version 8 firmware

HOLD THE PRESSES... FCPX doesn't support 480?  WTF?  Why is this even an issue in 2016, how different is 480 than the other?

Re: NEW Version 8 firmware

So does anyone have a solution on how to edit this footage from version 8 firmware?  Any ideas would greatly be appreciated.
