Quite a number of ophthalmologists have purchased or are about to purchase the new Sony PMW-10MD full HD camera to record surgery through the operating microscope. This camera uses a pair of SXS Express 34 solid state memory modules to record HD at 1080i with 60 frames per second. Proprietary XDCAM compression is used allowing surgeons to store several hours of video on one or two cards. Editing files compressed with XDCAM and in Sony's folder structure has been a burden. Fortunately, Sony upgraded its plug-ins and drivers for Final Cut Pro 7 and OS 10.6 making editing a joy again. This tutorial explains how to start editing your surgical videos again.
