Using Log and transfer P2 footage with Adobe premiere
on Oct 9, 2010 at 9:06:57 pm

Hi,

I have to use premiere to edit this project (and future projects) The PC has no firewire port... so I used my macbook pro and FCP to log and trasfer files to .mov. They exported as 1280x1080 and look fin in FCP but are squeezed upwards in Premiere. Any way to get around this? Apparently FCP saves space by compressing to 1280x1080 then automatically decompresses. How can I get it to decompress in adobe cs5?

Thanks!

You don't. Premiere edits P2 (.mxf) files natively. No need to log and transfer like on FCP. Use an offloading software like Shot Put Pro or Panasonic's CMS (available for free from their web site) to transfer your material to a hard drive that has a USB port..

Plus, it isn't FCP that is making the files 1280x1080...it's the format. DVCPRO HD at 1080 is 1280x1080 anamorphic. That is on panasonic...

And you don't need firewire to import the footage. The camera has USB out...
