Hello there Sorry for the vague question- I work at a TV station using XDCam for shooting/editing (a mixture of SD and HD)... but they haven't worked out how to archive material... eg where to keep masters of finished programs, compilations of b-roll likely to be needed again etc. Can the XDCam decks (we have PDW-F30 models) be used to record back onto with Final Cut? Is there anyone using them in this way- eg to generate master copies of programs or segments? This station can't afford a server-based archive, and we can't archive onto digital tape so would this work? Could we make compilation discs of b-roll and slowly fill them up on XDCam? (Then we could re-use discs for shooting and save some more money). I have previously worked in environments where DigiBeta was the standard and everything could be kept on tape, from finished programs to b-roll- can XDCam be used in the same way? I asked this question on Apple's own forums and someone mentioned it can be done but is incredibly slow... does anyone else have this experience?
