XDCAM Transfer 2.7 Still double clips
on May 20, 2008 at 4:39:09 am

I just did a clean install with 10.5.2 and am still getting the duplicate clips when importing clips with XDCAM Transfer 2.7 from FCP 6.02. Anyone else?

Just a thought

Good Luck

No, this was a known issue in 2.51, I was hoping it was fixed in 2.7.

Perhaps you can uninstall it, trash preferences and repair permissions and reinstall a fresh download.

Hi Michael

My feeling is that this is a bug in FCP and cannot be fixed by an update to XDCAM Transfer.
XDCAM Transfer copies and rewraps files to the target HD without issue and these files are then imported to FCP by FCP itself not by XDCAM Transfer. XDT creates an XML file describing the clip as an item contained by the targeted project, that clip is then "imported" to FCP by triggering an AppleEvent in FCP to Open the XML file ie FCP is controlling the import... at this point XDT has no more to do with it. As far as I can tell the problem is a cosmetic one caused by the process of importing a file into a bin by this method if and when the imported file cannot be graphically displayed in that bin (without scrolling) directly after the import due to the browser window already being full.

Its certainly a pain, anyway.

Cheers
Andy

Andy,
Open the XD Cam Transfer program, pulldown the XD Cam Transfer tab upper left corner and go into preferences, go to import and see if the box is checked for Write Final Cut XML file. If this is checked you will see 2 files importing to FC. Is this the issue?

Good Luck

No. As Andy said, the duplicate clips are caused by a bug in FCP that has been fixed in 6.0.3.

Cheers,
Rob

Really, this was fixed in 6.03? Hmm, to be able import XDAM into FCP or use Livetype with backgrounds on Leopard. Tough choice.

I would run into this problem if I was importing into an already existing project (that was a different format). If I created a new project that was setup to be XDCAM HD from the get go I did not get the double clips. It is really frustrating when you need some footage off of a disc for a different formatted project. You got to love work arounds!!!!
