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 :: Can't Import Correctly AVCHD From 10.1.3

Dec 2, 2014

Well, till the upgrade to FCPX 10.1.3 i have problems with importing footage from my Sony VG30 ( .MTS AVCHD files). From the past, i just copy the file from the SD card on the computer and then import it in FCPX.

Final Cut Pro X :: 10.0.9 import Window Doesn't Show Folders On Desktop

Jun 25, 2014

I have a number of folders on my desktop that contain movie files, jpeg files, you name it. When I try to import from the desktop, the import media window only shows the files and not the folders they are in! I have included a screen shot of what my window looks like when I select the desktop to import media. Again, I have a number of folders that don't show up, only the files in them. This is maddening when trying to import files! I know i can move the files to my hard drive but i am used to desktop work flow.

Mac Mini :: Final Cut Express And AVCHD?

Jun 27, 2010

Does anyone have experience using Final Cut Express (FCE) with AVCHD files on a Mac mini? Editing AVCHD is CPU intensive and Core 2 Duo instead of i5 on the mini is disappointing. But in practice, is the performance acceptable? I don't do large projects. The Mac Pro is out of my price range.

Final Cut Pro X :: AVCHD Or MP4 For Editing And Uploading To YouTube?

Jun 30, 2014

Our company just bought a Canon Vixia HF R52 camcorder so we can shoot instructional videos, edit, then upload to YouTube for our customers to access.  This camcorder has dual recording in AVCHD and MP4.  The guy doing the recording and the guy doing the editing live on opposite sides of the country, so the files will need to be uploaded to a website for sharing.   

Question 1:  Will the AVCHD files be too large to upload to a file sharing site or is it better to use MP4? 

Question 2: Which version of Final Cut can handle AVCHD the best, Final Cut Pro 4.0.1 or Final Cut Pro X?

Applications :: Final Cut Express And Sony SR7E AVCHD Camorder?

Dec 16, 2007

I am desperate to get some HD AVCHD footage off my new(ish) camcorder on to my iMac.

Neither iMovie nor iMove 6HD can transcribe AVCHD so I recently bought Final Cut Express 4.0.

This package at least accesses the movies on the HDD on the camcorder, but when I use the Log and Transfer or Capture facilities Final Cut lets me select a clip but when it tries to transfer it the application just crashes.

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?

Final Cut Pro X :: File Naming Scheme Change When Importing AVCHD Files

Jul 1, 2014

After updating to 10.1.2 it seems that FCPX now uses a different file naming scheme on imported AVCHD files.  

Previously on import, it would use a file naming scheme based on date ie. '2014-06-14 10_49_47 (id).mov' etc. which is great for me as I could see exactly what date & time that clip was created at a glance in the event viewer, also when a camera on a shoot had it's time out by an hour due to an incorrect daylight saving setting, I could use easily go through the clips tweaking the time in the file name & then they would show in the correct order in FCPX. 

Now 10.1.2 just imports the clips using the useless file naming scheme of 'clip' etc ...

Any way to get FCPX to import using the old naming scheme - or am I now boned if I have a camera set incorrectly ...

Final Cut Pro X :: Camera Icon On Bottom Left Of Imported Clip (AVCHD)

Aug 27, 2014

I import clips from a flash memory drive (the one attached to Sony NX5U camera). The drive is connected with USB cable. All clips imported are fine except one. The problematic one is in the AVCHD category in the browser and has a little camera icon on the bottom left of it's thumbnail. I cannot share the project containing that clip (there is a message that says:''this Item cannot be shared while it is still referencing media on the camera''). What does that icon mean and how do I import the clip properly ? I tried importing the clip again and it does the same thing...

Final Cut Pro X :: Updated To 10.1.3 And Now It Is Not Responding On MacBook Pro

Aug 29, 2014

I just updated to Final Cut Pro X 10.1.3. FCPX is not responding.  It has the spinning wheel going.  Now it is not functioning at all! 

In the Activity Monitor it shows 2 programs as "(Not Responding)"  Those are:  Final Cut Pro and Codec32BitTool.   

When I open the FCPX program, it seems that the spinning wheel starts as soon as I try to preview a clip.  I have tried using new projects, projects updated from 10.1.2, and I have also tried with a new user. All have the same result.  Not responding!!!   

If only I had not updated some critical projects to 10.1.3, or I would simply revert back to 10.1.2. 

I am using a 2011 Mac Pro, 16GB RAM

ICloud :: How To Import Personal Folders

Jun 3, 2012

I have personal archive folders that were on my Mac but were not in MobileMe before I transitioned to ICloud. I exported all of them (as .mbox files) to my Mac Desktop. I see no Import function in iCloud mail. I do realize that Smart folders won't work in iCloud, but nearly all of the personal folders are regular folders. Is there a way to get these archives into iCloud mail? I don't want to have to create them all over again and mail every message to myself at my iCloud email address and file all of them to newly created folders.

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.

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] ...

Final Cut Pro X :: 1080p Import But Showing 720 In Info

Dec 4, 2014

My Canon 70d took a sample video set 1080p 60 fps (59.97) (ALL-I). I then imported to a project (FCP set up for 1080p) but when bringing the clip into the timeline and selecting it then looking at "info" it states 720. Why is this? And will this still export to full 1080p?
