Edit Sony PMW-200 50Mbps MXF with Premiere Pro CS6

Postby jacknjchn » Sun Feb 03, 2013 10:08 am

Utilizing the UDF file system, the Sony XDCAM PMW-200’s MPEG HD422 mode records in a MPEG-2 Long GOP codec. 4:2:2 color sampling gathers more chroma information than older generations of XDCAMs, so the codec’s bitrate has been increased to 50 Mbps to accommodate. The average person may not see the difference, but your footage will be much better suited for color correction, green screen and other chroma keying effects.
