Working With Tapeless and DSLR Media from Class on Demand shows you what you need to know to work successfully in a tapeless world. Using step-by-step techniques and actual media, Larry explains how to organize your system, how to name your folders and files, shows you traps to avoid, then, using Final Cut Pro, illustrates how to ingest (meaning "bring into Final Cut") virtually every popular tapeless video format.
In addition, Larry provides weblinks for useful utilities that can make working with tapeless media even easier.
Note: Tapeless media discussed includes formats such as P2, XDCAM EX, DVCPROHD, AVCHD, AVCCAM, RED, H.264, and DSLR (both Canon and Nikon).
