fcps2 p2 import problem.
on Apr 1, 2008 at 3:36:00 am

I'm having a new problem which I'm sure has been discussed but I can't find a solution for it.

fcps2's Log and Transfer tool is not reading the p2 contents of 3 p2 cards I have transfered to my hard drive. I did transfer the txt file and each p2 card is in its own folder labeled p1, p2, p3.

Panasonic's own P2CMS program can view the footage on the exact same location.

So why can't FCP?

Thanks

Is the CONTENTS folder named anything other than CONTENTS, like CONTENTS #1, CONTENTS #2?

This?

#36 - One or More P2 files failed to import.

Shane's Stock Answer #36 - "One or more clips failed to import..."

Very often in the field with this camera the camera operator will delete clips from the P2 card that they just don't like. That is the beauty of this camera. But, the still for that video file (located in the CLIP folder in the CONTENTS folder)...the still that you see when you are in the P2 Import window...is not deleted. So you will see the image, and the name, but the video file would have been deleted.

What you can do it compare the file names in the VIDEO folder and CLIP folder and see if anything is missing. If something is, then you know what the problem is. You can then just import the rest a few at time, skipping that one.

ALSO...in the P2 Import window...in the P2 Browser, there is a little sprocket drop down menu. Click on that and choose PREFERENCES. Uncheck REMOVE PULLDOWN and then try importing again.

ALSO...make sure your file names aren't too long. Try shortening them and see if that works.

first of all I really appreciate the late night help!

the log and transfer window never generates any error message. it simply doesn't mount the P2 volume.

Yup...it is a problem. Either remove it or update it...they updated V2 to fix this problem. The update is free for V2 owners, and V1 owners need to pay the small upgrade fee.

oh man wow thanks for adding to yet another post on this problem. I think this is probably the issue I'm updating it now.

My pleasure. Threw me at first because you said that other cards imported fine.

Hi Shane,

Sorry to go back to the well here but I'm stuck again. I updated the fX pluggin on my mac and everything works great on my tower. a client of mine has a macbookpro and has been having problems with the exact same P2 volumes. He has updated the plugin except his log and transfer window produces a spinning beach ball of death when he selects a clip to add to the transfer que.

are there any other known reasons for this?

Try removing the FXPlug plugins. I learned that the LOG AND TRANSFER window and the FX Plug plugins share, or try to share, the same system resources because of the type of computer code they are written with. The L&T window might be conflicting with this, or some other FXPLUG plugin.
