Import cam files / Leave in place ?
on Jun 16, 2014 at 1:40:33 pm

Hi all
Playing with some F55 footage. Have copied the cards onto the server in /ProjectX/Media/Footage/Rushes/OrigCamFiles/F55/F55_D001_CRD001 etc..



Import in FCPX with the xdcam plugin installed.

I want leave in place but its greyed out :-/ Don't need to duplicate the media into the fcpx Project as that'll double my media up.

Any suggestions ?

Cheers

S

Clips on local/external drive?
Not on actual media right?
I do this all the time with copied R3Ds and never a problem.
Not sure if XDCAM is supported this way.

Clips are on an external drive used for all project media.

Nope not on the cards themselves.

Suppose each folder would appear as a card so FCPX may think in needs to ingest :-?

Here's a SWAG, but check to see if a DCIM or MOVIE folder (there may also be other types - check one of your F55 cards?) exists in the root level or in the folders of your external drive. I had a drive that got started by copying the folders from an SDXC card from a Canon T5i and because the DCIM folder was at the root level of the Thunderbolt drive, FCP X thought that it was a card.

BRU ... because it's the RESTORE that matters!

Well its a clone of a card and needs the structure for the plugin to work.

Seems it requires a rewrap hence the ingest. Unlike Resolve :(

Shame. Ended up processing them all through Resolve to Prores masters

Don't want a bloated FCPX Project file really and it locks other out from seeing the rushes.

HoHum....

My P2 cards need to be rewrapped as well. However you can still store the resulting re-wrap externally and decide if you need the original card clone as a back-up (which I think is a good idea). Your choice though.

Mac Pro, macbook pro, Imacs (i7); Canon 5D Mark III/70D, Panasonic AG-HPX170/AG-HPX250P, Canon HV40, Sony Z7U/VX2000/PD170; FCP 6 certified; FCP X write professionally for a variety of media; teach video production in L.A.

In order to work with MXF media without rewapping to mov, you must use an MXF plugin.

I routinely use the MXFmac plug from Hamburg Pro Media with f55 footage (XAVC). It will also work with XDCam footage.

If you don't want to spend money, you can use fcpx to rewrap to XDCam mov and skip resolve.
