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?
Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Final Cut 5.1
When I import video from my Creative's Vado HD Pocket Video camcorder on a month old MacBook Pro the video files in each event are black. They have no image. When I click on them I can see the video but I would prefer to see an image which makes identifying each video much easier.
Is there anything I can do so that I can see an image?
I can import only selected portions of video clips from my iPhone5. At present I have to import the full length of the video clip into the event and in so doing, I am unable to 'weed' out unrequired segments. Is editing the video clip in the iPhone itself the only option one has or is there any other way of doing it during the import process itself?

I edit on FCPX v10.0.9... (OSX 10.8.5) ...a client sent video at NTSC 720x480 DV... How do I FIRST import that video into an appropriate project setting without distorting the ratio (it keeps getting converted to 4:3 - narrower - and the original video is not 4:3)? and SECOND export and keep the same aspect ratio? I've done much research and realize that NTSC 720x480 DV is SD and FCPX wants square pixels etc.,My goal is to import the video, edit it, and export it all the while keeping the original aspect ration.

After importing HD video (from a Canon Vixia HV40) into iMovie 11 (v 9.04) at 960x540 resolution, you get a bunch of .mov files. Does anyone know why those .mov files, as they come out of the import process,will not import into iTunes? Here are the details. My brother wanted to put a small one onto his iPad. I told him the simplest way (or so I thought) to do it would be to import the .mov file into iTunes (v 10.6.1) and then sync his iPad. There was no need to make a project from the single clip, then share it. However, iTunes will not import any of the .mov files made with the iMovie import. Does anyone know why? This happens on my iMac (core i7) and his (core i5). Of course, if I open the .mov file in QuickTime Player (v 10.1) then export to a .m4v file (export setting "iPad, iPhone & Apple TV"), the new file imports into iTunes just fine. In case iTunes thinks you shouldn't be importing clips from the iMovie events folder, I dragged the clip to the desktop and tried the import, but that did not work either. I guess what this comes down to is given that iMovie, QuickTime Player and iTunes all come from Apple, why can iMovie and QuickTime Player read the file while iTunes cannot? I would think the same code would be in all three products (do the iMovie and QuickTime Player developers refuse to share, while the iTunes developers are lazy?).
I own a Sony Cyber-shot camera, and a 24 inch IMAC computer. I took a short video clip and downloaded it to Iphoto (no problem doing that). I then downloaded the clip to a 4 gpb flash drive, as an mp4 video. My problem is that my friends Microsoft based PC can't play it.
I have my firewire connected to my camera but I am not sure what to click in order to import my videos. I know nothing about technical terms and stuff so I used Imovie but i don't have that anymore. How do I do this on FCP?
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.
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. When i do that, i can't import it, but there are audio bugs (parasite sounds).From the past, that method also work on FCPX 10.1.1 but now i'm on 10.1.3 i can't see the content of the SDCard, arriving to AVCHD folder, FCPX will no more import or recogniste it as video media.
I recently purchased an MP3 album from Amazon, which downloaded fine. Unlike previous times, however, the Amazon Downloader app didn't load the music into my iTunes library. I tried to manually add the album to my iTunes Library, with no luck. I was able to load the album into my iPhone Music app by dragging and dropping on my iPhone device in iTunes (after turning off iTunes Match).. If I double-click on the songs on my hard drive, they will play in iTunes, but do not import.
I am running Mac OS 10.7.3, iTunes 10.6.1 (7) and have iTunes Match active on my computer.
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.
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.

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] ...
I upgraded to 10.1 and have been working with Libraries for a while now however there are some projects I decided not to move into the new version. Now I need to open then and the project folders are not recognised when trying to import?
Here you can see that the Final Cut Projects folder cannot be selected?
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?
I did a shoot with audio on a green screen stage. I have some video clips of my actors shot on a RED Scarlett in 4K 29.97.I have audio clips recorded on a Zoom H4 with a boom mic at 16 bit 44.1 khz.
I take the 2 clips in FCP X and I create a synchronized clip. The video clip doesn't have an audio channel so I have to manually sync using the slate. I have the correct audio clip and the correct video clip, but the audio clip is longer than the video clip. It's just running a tad slower than the video clip. I tried creating a project in 44.1khz instead of 48khz and FCP X didn't treat it any differently.
Cannot connect to external drive from Final Cut X import window; cannot create new project. I have tried repairing drives and permissions. I have a MacBook Pro, 2.7 GHz, Core 17, with OS X 10.9.3 (13D65). Everything is recently updated.
I can't import MXF files shot on a Canon C300 into FCP 10.1.2. I have the Canon plug in for MXF file to FCP import but FCPX still doesn't recognize MXF files when I try to import. Premiere works fine importing MXF on the same computer.

I don't do much with tape anymore but a client has provided me with some HDV tape that i want to edit as ProRes in Premiere Pro.
I don't have a third party capture card so therefore in Premiere Pro I am limited to capturing only as HDV from tape.
I'm thinking of capturing as ProRes in FCP 7 (which I had done for ages before switching to Premiere in the wake of FCP X) and then importing the subsequent ProRes files into Premiere from the capture folder.
my Final Cut Pro 10.1.3 is crashing when I try to edit a simple 2 minute video clip.I have been doing a web video series for over 2 months now uploading videos every day - with no problems using this same workflow but now I am stuck and have a deadline coming up in 24 hours.
I shoot with a Sony EX-3 camera using SxS cards which create XDCAM-EX files and I bring these into FCP via a Sony SxS external Thunderbolt reader, edit and share to Facebook. I have an orange LaCie Thunderbolt drive that store my Library and Project files. I have done this 70+ days in a row w/ zero problems. Now, any time I try to get tomorrow's video ready, FCP crashes
I re-start FCP, my Mac (I use a new MacBook Pro that works seamlessly).I run latest Mavericks OS.The only different thing that happened otherwise is I got some TuneUpMyMac freeware on my Mac when I restart which I never chose to get and cannot delete this because it doesn't show up and I am concerned it is a virus that is messing up FCP
