No EX option in FCP Easy Setup
on Oct 13, 2009 at 5:59:17 am

So I've been trying to edit footage on my laptop (Macbook Pro w/ FCP 6.0.6) from my EX-1 and for some reason the correct EX formats are not showing up in my setup options. I can only choose the Sony XDCAM HD options, bc the HDCAM EX and XDCAM HD422 options are just not there in the drop down. Am I missing a codec or plugin or something?

Thanks for any help ....

Hi Max,
I'm not sure but I think the Easy Setups get installed with the SONY TRansfer and the FC Plugin.

Easy setups for EX should be there with FCP 6.0.2 and up. They're built in. That said, this is an oft reported issue. I can't quite remember what the fix was but it might be a reinstall of Quicktime and Final Cut Pro. It might be an uninstall and reinstall of FCP. It might be trashing FCP preferences. It might be adding the above as Rafael mentions that jogs FCP's "memory." They should be their with FCP 6.0.2 install. I think sometimes the issue happened when updating from FCP 6.0 or 6.0.1 to FCP 6.0.2 and up. It's a flaky but common issue. I just wish I could recall the voodoo that fixes it.

If nothing works, you can always create a custom setup yourself,
name and save it. It'll appear inside the easy setup dialog box.

[Max Morse] "i've tried the custom setup but i still get extra rendering time when it says "conforming mpeg-2 format." "
What means that?
With the Conform functions in FC, the Easy Setups have become almost unnecessary.

Hey all ...

So I've tried just about everything suggested. Trashing receipts, reinstalling FCP, and reinstalling all the XDCAM products I could find (SxS driver, Log and Capture plugin, XDCAM transfer, browser, etc.). And still no EX formats in my setup. Any more ideas? Do you think the next step is going to see a genius?

Thanks!

Hi Max,
From FC 6 on there is a kind of Easy Setups manager.
Open the Easy Setups window and select:
Format: All formats
Rate: All rates
All the easy Setups that you have should show up on the Sequence Preset.
I have Easy Setups in four different places on my System.

Maybe post what you figured out so others bumping into this (and others have) can learn what might fix it.

Of course, Craig!

After Rafael told me where to find the Final Cut Pro Additional Easy Setups folder (in Applications), the question was where to put the EX files. The answer I found was ~Macintosh HD/Application Support/Final Cut Pro System Support/Custom Settings. Just copy the Easy Setup files you want into there and they show up in FCP.

Thanks again for all the help, everybody!
