Hey guys. I called myself being smarter and faster while transferring some P2 Clips. Essentially, I copied the folders and dumped them on an external--which would have worked fine, had I checked to make sure everything went over.
Anyways, I tried to bring my CONTENTS folder into FC and I got an error. Apparently, nothing but the Audio/Video folders copied over, in addition to the .txt file.
Is there a way to get this media back? I don't have the cards anymore...so all I have to work with are those two folders.
Yeah, just to add another voice to the fold here...without the other 4 folders, FCP will not import the footage. Your only option is third party. I too agree that Shotput Pro is essential when dealing with tapeless media. It verifies that everything was copied over.
I want to offer other third party solutions to check out too.
Raylight and Calibrated. I do like the robustness and other options that MXF4mac offers though. But I like to offer all the options.
How F'in cool is that! Shane Ross replied to MY post. Lol.
Thanks guys. I've tried multiple things and the closest I have gotten was exporting the merged MXF files through XDCam Clip Browser, and opening those in VLC. The issue now is there is a watermark like the product isn't registered or payed for. I'll check with my director and see if the company owns that/ or if we should buy it.
And I'm gonna keep searching. I'm interested in MXF4mac and I'm going to give it a shot.
Thanks again. Creative Cow is the best freakin' thing ever for an Editor. Much love to those who share their wisdom!

Hmm, interesting choice. I had no idea you could even get that to even come close to working. Are your exported files now XDcam files? If so, while I guess that's workable, it wouldn't be the way I would recommend.
