After shooting a bunch of P2 footage, I copied the contents of the P2 cards directly to my hard drive. I only have FCP4.5 and wasn't able to ingest the footage immediately. I now have a bunch of folders named "No Name" with all the folders intact (Audio, Video, Clip, etc).
The problem comes when I'm on my friend's computer with a newer version of FCP; when I try to Log and Transfer from the "No Name" folders, I can't seem to add anything to the Log and Transfer window. Any ideas? The footage only exists in those folders on my drive (P2 cards long gone with a rented rig). Did I screw myself?
Yup, didn't change the name of contents and last clip file is in each "No Name" folder.
I watched the tutorial. Basically at the point in the Log and Transfer step when I select the No Name folder, nothing shows up in the window.
Hey guys. Turns it it was FX Factory installed on my friend's computer. I used his laptop with no FX Factory, and, voila.
Thanks a bunch.
Two of the card that were offloaded to my drive only have Audio and Video folders in them (no Clips, Proxy, etc). They both have lastclip.txt files, but that's it. I'm assuming the footage from those cards is lost?
