I have shot three 8GB P2 cards at 720P 24N and copied them to a
Lacie hard drive. I guess that means that I have 12 partitions left.

I want to shoot DVCPRO 50 24P tomorrow onto the P2 card and store
it on the same Lacie. I'm just getting started at this so I want to know
if it's okay or if since I started storing 720P 24N do I have to stay with
that only for this drive?

My guess is that they're all P2 files but I don't want to screw anything
up. Thanks!

Hello Jim,
You can shoot DVCPRO 50 24p....
You can shoot any mode any time, even
on the same P2 card, does not matter....
What does matter is that you create a
separate folder for each CONTENTS folder and LASTCLIP.txt
The LASTCLIP.txt is needed if you have clips that span two cards.

Thanks, Michael. I'm shooting different modes for different projects and storing them until I can edit.
My first project is all 720P 24N in two partitions and today is for a different project in DVCPRO 50 so
I'm glad that you mentioned that I should have a separate folder for each Contents folder and
LASTCLIP.txt. (although I'm using one 8 GB card so I guess that I won't be using the LASTCLIP.txt.)

It's great to be able to check Cinematography.com on the way out to a shoot. Thanks again!

Hi.

You don't need to partition your drive. it's only what the P2-store does for a silly reason.

You can store whatever on your disks.

Hey Gunleik,

Maybe you shouldn't shoot anything new until you do some editing! Although it sounds like
you'll be editing for a long time. Good luck!

I'm fine, thanks -;)

It's all the extras I want to do with the footy, which is suffering.

I'm not totally on my own, though.
