Help with FCP Import of P2 Media .MXF Files?
on Jan 11, 2010 at 6:59:27 pm

While in Florida I couldn't get the HVX170 camera I was shooting with to dump our files onto our Macbook so I took the cards to a Video Production House and had the files dumped to my external hard drive. The files are .mfx files which I think are supported in AVID and not FCP? I have FCP 6.0.6 installed on my IMac 2.66ghz. I am looking for the easiest way to get these files into FCP so I can use them for editing. If any of you could provide some help I would greatly appreciate it!


Thanks,

Mike

File > Log and Transfer. Then load the cards in there.

Hey Shane thanks for the help! I got through the 1st step of log and transfer and a few MFX files were in the window. My problem now is how do i get the rest of my MFX files into the log and transfer window. files are on an external hard drive and i was not able to import them? I went to add custom path and it said "VIDEO" contains unsupported media or has an invalid directory structure. Please choose a folder whose directory structure matches supported media. is there any way you could help me?
Thanks you
Chelly

Point it to the CONTENTS folder.

Also, did by any chance any of clips say (Spanned) in the log and transfer window?

[chelly ortiz] "Now that i got my .MOV files i am trying to open them in adobe premiere but i am unable to can you help in any way?"

What? Why did you convert the MXF to QT in FCP if you are going to use this footage in PREMIERE? Why not just use PREMIERE! It supports P2. The codec that FCP uses only comes with FCP, and you'll need to buy a third party decoder if you want to use the footage on a machine without FCP. Why not bypass that and just import into Premiere?

I don't understand...

Hey Shane, totally makes sense. Someone brought the files to me because they could not import them into PREMIERE. They said they were able to convert quicktimes, i was just trying to help. Would you happen to know how i can import the files into PREMIERE?
Thank you so much for all your help

Hey Shane, my friends problem is that he has Premier Cs3 and it will not open P2 files with out the upgrade. He insist that i can change the codec setting in final cut? He does not use final cut and can not tell me how it works, would you happen to know if this is possible? and if so, how i can change the codec to a format that will open in premier?
Thanks again
Chelly

Is this DVCPro HD? Are they using Premiere on Windows? If so, in order for them to read the DVCPro HD QT movies on windows they will need to buy raylight.
