There are much better programs for transcoding than After Effects, I'd suggest using Adobe Media Encoder, DaVinci Resolve or Compressor 4. I actually use Resolve a lot for transcoding, added bonus is that it's free also!

The first point is true on so many levels. If I got a dollar for every time a client asked for special effects or graphics during the colouring process, I'd own a DaVinci Control Surface outright by now. It's crazy how so many people don't know the difference between a colourist or VFX artist! Always makes for some really disappointing/awkward conversation afterwards too...
Thanks for your thoughts, Clark! I've not used an FS700 before and if it were several grand cheaper I'd certainly consider it. We also have a Sony PMW-F5 CineAlta, so I'm keen to stick with Sony in order to keep the PP's similar. What's your experience with the FS100 been like?
Hi George, that's really interesting – we purchased several of the SanDisk 64GB Extreme Pro SD (SDXC) Card UHS-II 280MB/s for use with the A7SII which I've been using on the field over past month. It's probably a combination of you shooting in Portland in winter verses me shooting in Melbourne during summer as to why our experiences have been so different... It's 39 degrees outside (102.2°F)!
Thanks Guy, this is what I'm thinking too. Not ideal – but certainly an option.
