Hold off on upgrading to 10.2 if you use AVCHD from Panasonic (GHx exempted)
on Apr 15, 2015 at 12:25:13 pm

Initial reports are flowing in, and I can confirm, that Panasonic AVCHD from their Professional/Prosumer video cameras no longer plays back with an image in 10.2 (image is black). Anecdotal evidence indicates GH-series stills cameras are fine, and I'm having no trouble with AVCHD from either Canon stills or C100s. Video from AF100s aren't working however.

Creating Optimized and Proxy media only produces ProRes with black footage, though oddly, running the original media through compressor works - however it is not feasible for complex projects already in progress.

I'm sure it'll get remedied, hopefully quickly enough to not scare us all into adobe's arms, but if you use such a thing, hold off for now. It's too bad, the promises of 10.2 UI speed-ups aren't overstated making and already fast workflow that much faster.

I just did a test import from footage shot on a Panasonic AG-AC160. Video was shot at 720p 59.94. The video imported correctly, and transcoded to ProRes correctly.
I also did a 3 camera multicam edit using 3 streams of RAW AVCHD (no ProRes transcode) yesterday, immediately after upgrading to 10.2. The video was imported into FCPX before the upgrade.

So it seems the issue may be limited to specific framrates... 1080p30 doesn't work, 1080p24 does.

Petros,
I did a test shoot using 1080p 30 and 1080i 60 clips and they both imported, transcoded and played back correctly. However the 30p did flash black very briefly before playing back correctly,

I edit primarily GH4 footage and I'm experiencing slower timeline operations and short 'beachballs'.
