  • FS-100 Quicktime PN questions

    I just upgraded my Firestore FS-100 to version 4, and I have a few questions about shooting in the Quicktime PN mode.
    I normally shoot with a Panasonic HVX200 in DVCPROHD P2 format and import into FCP6. I want to use the FS-100 REELS to organize my clips but found that the REELS function does not work with P2.
    The folks at Focus suggested that I use the Quicktime PN mode, which will give me the same quality as P2 and then I will be able to organize the reels. I tested this and it worked.

    My questions are:
    1. How do I name the clips something other that the FS-100 crazy naming conventions?
    2. Will I be able to log and transfer this way or do I need to just drag the folder containing the clips to my drive and then import to FCP6?
    3. Is the quality the same?
    4. Other than the fact that you need FCP6 to use these files, what quirky things should I be aware of in this mode?

    We have a big shoot next week and are thinking of using this mode but do not want to have any problems.
