(However, not all media types arecross-compatible between Windows and the Mac OS.)This paper will cover: Part 1: Acquiring and archiving footage to be edited. Ways of acquiring P2 footage throughshooting, from NLEs, from sharing files, or from content generated by P2 software and equipment,methods for archiving the footage, P2 file structure, and accessing footage on your computer. Part 2: Ingesting and logging footage in Adobe Prelude CS6. Get into the creative zone faster byingesting and logging your clips in Adobe Prelude and then bring them into Adobe Premiere ProCS6, retaining In points and Out points set in Prelude that help you quickly produce a rough cut. Part 3: Working in Adobe Premiere Pro. Project setup, importing footage, working with thefootage, and exporting to a variety of formats. We will explore integration with Adobe Encore andAfter Effects through Dynamic Link. Part 4: Working in After Effects. Importing footage, creating composites, working with thefootage, and exporting through the render queue, as well as integration with Adobe Premiere Prothrough Dynamic Link. Part 5: Adobe CS6 Production Premium HD delivery options. Production Premium offers a widearray of HD delivery options, including P2 format, content for the Web, Blu-ray Disc authoring, andeven export to HD tape for broadcast. Part 1: Acquiring and archiving footage to be edited Acquiring P2 footage The most common method for acquiring footage in P2 format is to shoot with any of the PanasonicP2 and P2HD camcorders: the high-definition AG-HPX170PJ, AG-HPX250PJ, AG-HVX200A, theAG-HPX370, the AG-HPX500, the AJ-HPX2000, and the AJ-HPX3100GJ, as well as theAJ-HPX2700 and AJ-HPX3700 Varicams. (Model numbers may vary slightly by region.)The AVC-Intra codec is implemented by Panasonic in several of its P2HD broadcast cameras,including the HPX250PJ, the HPX2000 (with optional AJ-YBX200 codec board), the HPX3100GL,and the HPX2700 and HPX3700 Varicams.Footage may be acquired in other ways as well. The AJ-HPM200 P2 Mobile six-slot recorder/player,as well as the HPX370, HPX2000, HPX2700, and HPX3700 cameras, have the ability to createsubclips or roughly-edited sequences from P2 footage stored on P2 cards, and to output them inP2 format to a P2 card. Workflow with these types of clips will be the same as with any othermethod of acquisition.Footage already shot may also be delivered on storage media such as hard disk drives, digital tape,optical media such as CD, DVD, or Blu-ray, or by any other file storage system. As long as the P2 filestructure is maintained, these files are identical to the files recorded on a P2 card.Also, P2 footage may be created from the timeline of various NLEs, including Adobe Premiere ProCS6, and then exported to P2 format as data files, or played out to a P2 camcorder and recordeddirectly to the P2 cards.As video is shot with a P2 camcorder, it is recorded to the P2 card. The P2 card is a mass mediastorage device which is functionally identical to other storage devices like hard drives or flashdrives. The media files are stored in an IT file system with folders, subfolders, and a text file called“LastClip.txt” – this text file stores the file name of the last clip shot, and when transferring media toanother drive, it should be kept along with the rest of the folders and files.Next to the LastClip.txt file is a folder called “Contents.” In it are six subfolders – Video, Audio, Clip,Icon, Proxy, and Voice. These folders contain various files which make up the P2 data. The Videofolder contains the video portions of the footage, while the Audio folder contains the audio files.The Clip folder contains XML files which store the metadata recorded with each clip. The Iconfolder contains small .bmp thumbnail images of each clip. The Voice folder contains audio files of   3 Adobe CS6 Production PremiumPanasonic P2 any voice memos recorded with the clips (a function available on the HPX2000, HPX3000,HPX2700, and HPX3700 cameras as well as the P2 Mobile. Voice memos can also be added in P2Viewer). The Proxy folder contains low-res proxy video of the footage shot (again, available on theHPX2000/3000 and Varicam cameras and the P2 Mobile).For the P2 system to function correctly, all  folders and files must be kept intact and in theirrespective folders. If they are not, vital information will be lost and the footage may not be usable. Panasonic P2 drivers and software Before working with P2 footage, download and install the P2 drivers and P2 support software.They can be found at  http://www.panasonic.com/business/provideo/support/software.asp .The drivers will allow the computer to access and understand P2 hardware, including the P2 cardsthemselves. The support software, including P2 Viewer and P2 Contents Management Software(P2CMS), will provide a substantial set of tools for working with the P2 card contents. (The Macversion of P2 Viewer is included with P2CMS.) Archiving footage It is highly recommended that P2 data be archived before working with it. The data on P2 cards isproperly thought of as computer data, and not “video” data, and it should be archived accordingly.There are numerous archiving options. Whichever method youchoose, be sure to keep the entire file structure intact and includethe corresponding LastClip.txt file. The best options include:1. Hard disk drives  Transfer the P2 data just as you would anyother data; this can be to an internal drive, but an externaldrive  whether over USB 2.0 or IEEE-1394 400/800 (FireWire)  would be most useful for long-term storage.2. Optical media  e most useful variety will be Blu-ray Discs,because they are the highest-capacity and can store multiple cardson a single disc, but standard DVD+/-R DVDs and dual-layer DVDscan be used to store single, smaller cards.3. DLT or LTO tape  Not video tape; DTO or LTO tapes aredesigned to store computer data instead of video footage, and canstore hundreds of gigabytes per tape. Hard disk drives To transfer to hard disk drive, the best option is to use P2 Viewer (in Windows) or P2CMS (Windowsor Mac). This will allow you to create “virtual cards” with the correct file structure and all necessaryfiles and folders intact, as well as mixing and matching clips from multiple cards as you see fit. Thiswill allow you the greatest flexibility and control over your archiving process.Or, you can simply copy over the existing folders and files of a card, making sure, as noted severaltimes, to keep the file structure intact, including the LastClip.txt file. You will need to createseparate folders for each card, as each contains a Contents folder and LastClip file, and you cannotrename them and maintain P2 functionality.To maintain functionality between Windows and Mac systems, a hard disk drive can be formattedas FAT32, which is compatible with both systems. All P2 cards are formatted as FAT32, so any cardwill be able to be stored to a FAT 32 disk drive. However, cards may also be stored on hard diskdrives using the Windows NTFS or Mac HFS+ file systems. For cross-platform access, Windowsusers can use software such as MediaFour’s MacDrive to read and write to Mac-format drives. Macusers can read NTFS drives natively, but for read-write capability, additional software such asParagon Software’s NTFS for Mac is required. Optical media To archive onto optical media, you will need an appropriate DVD burner and burning software(such as Nero) to create data (not video) DVDs. Again, you would maintain the P2 file structure and  4 Adobe CS6 Production PremiumPanasonic P2 LastClip file. You can burn a single 4 GB card to a DVD+/-R, a single 8 GB card to a dual-layer DVD,or multiple cards to a Blu-ray DVD, again creating separate folders for each individual card.Archiving to DVD can also be done through Adobe Encore. To do this, choose File>Select DVDROM Folder, and then navigate to a P2 card; choose the folder level containing both the Contentsfolder and the LastClip.txt file. Then go to File>Build and pick “Disc” from the submenu. In the Buildpanel, you may choose the DVD size from 3.95 GB, 4.7 GB, or 8.54 GB Dual Layer. Under Output,choose “DVD Disc.” When you click “Build,” choose “Ignore and Continue” when the box pops upwarning there is a problem which may cause the disc not to play; it is unnecessary to make aplayable video DVD. After you click, the process will continue automatically with instructions. Digital tape For archiving to digital data tape, Quantum offers DLT and LTO tapes and drive which specificallyunderstand the P2/MXF file structure. LTO-3 tapes are high-capacity and can store several hundredgigabytes of data. Drives such as the Quantum LTO-3A and SDLT 600 are P2/MXF compatible. Flash media Small cards can be stored on flash drives or memory cards of 4 GB or higher; however, the datarates and error rates for those cards may not be appropriate for direct editing from them, especiallyHD footage. Cards stored on such drives should be transferred to hard disk before being used. Theprocess for transferring to a flash drive or memory card is the same as for storing to hard disk drive. Archiving to video tape Footage can also be stored, with no quality loss, on video tape; DV/DVCPRO can be stored on DVtape. DVCPROHD, DVCPRO 50, and DVCPRO footage can be stored on DVCPRO tape.To archive on video tape from Adobe Premiere Pro, you can use File>Export>Export to Tape. DVfootage can be printed through 1394 with a DV deck or camcorder. Printing to DVCPRO 50 orDVCPROHD decks will require a hardware card, such as those from AJA or Blackmagic Design.Archiving to video tape will mean the loss of all metadata and will require linear capture for futureuse. Footage srcinally recorded in 720p Native modes will be recorded to tape as “over-60” or“over-50” and will lose any space-saving or timeline advantages that the Native mode affords whenon a P2 card. Accessing P2 footage on your computer There are a number of ways to read P2 data within Adobe CS6 Production Premium: Reading P2 cards directly The quickest path to working with P2 footage would be to read the data directly from a P2 card  this can allow you to edit your footage literally seconds after shooting, with no waiting for captureor transcoding. The footage is ready to edit as soon as it is recorded.As the P2 card is a mass storage device, it can be read directly by either Windows or the Mac OS thesame as any other storage device. Whichever method is used, in order to read a P2 card as a device,the computer must have the Panasonic P2 drivers installed.Various options exist to connect a P2 card directly to a system. The P2 camcorder itself can be usedas a card reader when connected to the computer  through IEEE-1394 on a Mac and through USB2.0 on a Windows machine. Likewise, an AG-HPG20 P2 Gear player/viewer/recorder may be used.(Using 1394 with Windows or using USB 2.0 with the Mac OS are not certified for completefunctionality.) A P2 Mobile in card reader mode will work as well.There are several options for a direct connection. The AJ-PCD30PJ is a three-slot card reader whichconnects to the computer through USB 3.0 or IEEE-1394. The P2 Drive has the advantage of reading all cards inserted as a single card, automatically stitching together any spanned clipsbetween cards, and making the data on several cards accessible all at once.
