Final Cut Pro X :: Sees Camera But Will Not Import

Dec 3, 2014

I have a Canon XL1s going into my MacBook Pro running Final Cut X via DV to FireWire 800 to thunderbolt. Since I am recording long meetings I skip recording to tape and record straight to the hard drive. I have done this in the past and it worked on older versions of the same hardware and software.

It will import only when the camera is also recording.Now When you import, you can see the feed and the computer says its importing, but after you stop importing the files are nowhere to be found. I even tried this on IMovie and used someone else's Mac with the same result.

Didn't dave this problem before, so when I'm importing to my project the the hard drive is listed as a camera and the program starts to scan through all files! this means that the ram memory is filled i no time! Is it something in my settings or is it the new version of fcpx that is playing tricks on me (not supported had drive?)

Final Cut Pro :: Unable To Import P2 Video / Add Clip To Import Queue It Just Times Out

Apr 1, 2009

Since upgrading to Snow Leopard, I can no longer import P2 footage. I get the stop sign and error: no data.In the import window I can play the clip and everything is fine, but when I add to the clip to the import queue it just times out.

Any thoughts? Is it somehow related to Quicktime being updated by Snow Leopard?

OS X :: Sony HD Camera - Best Way To Import Video?

Aug 13, 2010

I just converted to a 2007 Macbook (wife's old comp) and was using Sony's PMB software with my PC (Windows XP SP2). I know that I can use iMovie '08 to import the files but they are HUGE. I assume it's because PMB imports in AVHCD format and iMovie uses .MOV? Is there another program I can use to import my files. I don't want to waste all my hard drive space importing a few movies.

MacBook :: Installed Snow Leopard Now Cannot Import Pics From Camera

Mar 16, 2012

I recently upgraded to Snow Leopard on my Macbook and iMac. My camera will not Import any pictures since the upgrade onto the macbook only, the camera is recognised on the iMac in iphoto and the easyshare software. I had no issues with the camera using Leopard. The error message reads, "camera not detected, please retry" this is in the kodak easyshare software and the pictures will not Import into iPhoto either.

I have a Kodak M532 easyshare camera with a Sandisc SDHC memory card. The camera uses a usb lead. The memory card works on the iMac and it is also recognised in the Kodak printer memory card reader, so I don't think it is the memory card at fault.I took out the memory card then took some pictures, iPhoto and easyshare software recognised the camera and Imported them on the macbook.

OS X :: Final Cut Pro Compatability With HD Camera

Feb 24, 2009

I have a problem digitising footage into final cut from my Sony HD 1080i/mini DV camera.

It used to work ok, albeit with some rendering issues.I had it set to the HD settings. Suddenly it stopped working I have tried adjusting the audio visual settings, using several different types. The only one i could get it to communicate on was DV50 pal 48Hz anamorphic.But it stops digitising after 3/4 sec and says there is a problem with my source tape.

Final Cut Pro X :: 10.1.3 Does Not See Camera Archives?

Aug 23, 2014

I have tried to use the "camera archive functionality" for the first time and got a problem, I can't solve myself: 

I plugged a SD-Card with content of my Panasonic SD 909 into my Mac and opened FCPX. Then I went to the "Import Media"-Window. The card is shown twice. I think, this is, because it contains different media. Some clips shot in Panasonics "iFrame"-Mode (which leads to h.264), some shots in the well-known AVCHD-mode. First is shown in the one camera-card, second in the other. Importing media from this card(s) into an FCPX event works without problems. 

No I activated one of the two cards in the upper right panel and clicked on "create archive" (or similar, I use the german translation). A window pops up where I can choose the destination for the archive (I have chosen my desktop first). I did not activate the option "create favorite" for now and started processing. 

It took a long while (about 18 GB of data), but then the archive was created and in the finder, I can see it on my desktop. Annotation: Selecting the first or second camera-card for archiving leads to the same result. In both cases a archive was generated which stores both contens (approved by examining the package size and content in the finder). 

But now, the problem(s):When I go to the import window in FCPX again, the archive is not visible. It does not appear in the left panel of the import media-Window. Not as a camera, not as a device, not as an archive. Restarting FCPX and even my Mac does not solve this.I can navigate to the archive via choosing my harddisk/desktop in the left panel and can see it in the "choose media section" in the bottom of the window. It behaves like a folder there. When I open this folder, I only see the h.264-media, but no AVCHD-Clips. This happens, regardless which card I have choosen when generating the archive (tried it with both, and - as said - both ways result in the same archive). 

What am I doing wrong? I know, in older versions of FCPX, archives had to be stored in a special folder inside the movie-folder of my user, but this has changed with 10.1.2 and the folder is not there any longer. Is there an other place for the archives? I thought, starting with 10.1.2 it's no matter, where to store them... 

Or is this a bug in FCPX (10.1.3)? 

If this is on interest, my OS is 10.9.4, the complete system nearly a "virgin" (fresh complete install).

Final Cut Pro X :: How To Put Together Two Camera Shoot And Sync Sound

Final Cut Pro X :: Unable To Create Camera Archive

Aug 24, 2014

When I try to create a camera archive from the card a videographer gave me I see that the archive grows to the expected size but then I get a message saying "Unable to create camera archive". Here is what the card looks like with all its folders open:

Here is the Inspector from one of the files on the card:

Here is how Final Cut sees the card from the import window:

I also imported the files without making a camera archive. In that case Final Cut copied all of the files, not letting me choose the option to leave the files in place. I am able to use the files so copied, except the audio is missing in the final frame of each clip, an example of which you can see below. There is a video image in the final frame and it is different from the one before it and the one after it.

I've also tried to process the files with ClipWrap but ClipWrap does not allow me to drag anything from the card onto its clip window. Why does Final Cut fail to create an archive? 

Is there any better way to import the files than the way that led to the missing frame of audio on the end of each clip?

Final Cut Pro X :: Updated To 10.1.2 - Not Able To Import AVCHD Folders?

Jul 1, 2014

Just updated to 10.1.2. My typical workflow is as follows: 

1. Copy AVCHD folder (with all files and file structure) from a SD Card to ext HD

2. Import AVCHD folder (with all files and file structure) from ext HD to FCX 

But all of a sudden, when I look to import new footage that I just copied to my ext HD, I no longer have an option to import an entire AVCHD folder (with the file in it). FCX doesn't even show the AVCHD folders on my ext HD. 

HOWEVER - When I copy a newly created AVCHD file to my desktop, FCX sees those files (though I don't have the option to import and entire folder filled with the AVCHD files). 

I have an entire ext HD full of archived AVCHD folders from SD cards. I thought this was a good way to have back up files (I also have these AVCHD folders on another back up cloud drive), but now it looks like I can't even access them with the new FCX update.

Final Cut Pro X :: Copy File On Import Not Working?

Sep 8, 2014

An issue arose today with our new MacPro/FCPX/SNS EVO SAN combo. 

When importing media from a portable drive using FCPX in “copy files” mode, with the Library’s media folder residing on the SAN, FCPX imports but does not copy the media. The clip appearing in the browser is still linked to the original file. 

If the clip is of a codec that can be optimized and the option in the import window is ticked, only the optimized media is copied to the SAN volume. 

Renders work, writing to a dedicated NAS volume, Exports work too, writing to another dedicated Exports NAS volume. 

I am stumped. I have never seen FCPX behave this way. The strange thing is that at no time does it indicate any problem with the copying process not succeeding… 

Because the optimized media is created on the volume I would imagine this is probably more of an OS/FCPX issue but I don’t know enough about the processes in the mac to be sure of that. 

OBTW: Trashed the prefs, with both Pref Manager and alt+cmd at launch.

Final Cut Studio :: Pixelated Mini DV Import

Jun 30, 2014

I don't do a lot with Mini DV, but I have a mini dv tape that I'm attempting to capture using FCP7.  Basically when I play the video to a TV off the camcorder, it looks fine, and when I play it in the "log and capture" preview window it looks fine, but when I actually capture it, the video is very pixelated/chunky.  What am I doing wrong here?  I notice that in the "log and capture" preview window, there are interlacing/combing lines, and when I play the captured clip, there are not.  Can FCP7 be trying to deinterlace my footage and butchering it in the process?  I'd rather have combing than this pixelated mess.   

You can see a comparison in the screenshot here, especially noticeable in this comparison along the roof lines:  [URL] ...
