Importing DV footage from SONY PMW-320 into final cut
on Mar 30, 2012 at 3:43:24 pm

Just received some SD footage from a two camera shoot with PMW-320s, one camera had 4 audio lines and both cameras timecodes were synched.
Is there a way to properly import the files to Final Cut? since just moving them from the card gives me no timecodes and only 2 audio lines. plus the quality seems lower than i expected.

Thanks.

Do you have XDCAM Transfer? It's a free download from Sony. Use XDCAM Transfer to download your footage into FCP ready files. I have never shot SD with the PMW-320 but have shot many times in various HD settings.
XDCAM Transfer works great. (It makes files that can ONLY be used in FCP). Just drag and drop.

XDCAM Transfer does not support SD, need to use the Log and Transfer extension or XDCAM Browser, these will convert to .mov. JFYI the .avi files can be brought into FCP but you'll get a 'media not optimized' message and some performance issues (no destructive media management on non-mov clips, for example)

What is the version of Final Cut? FCP X can natively render and edit SONY PMW-320 MXF.

Log and Transfer plugin can help you transcode and import the videos to FCP 5/6/7.

FCE doesn't support MXF format, you have to reformat it to a playable format, like AIC .mov, before importing.
