Hello--I'm using AVID 6.0.1 on a brand new 27" iMac and I'm importing MTS files from an SD card that originated from a Sony FS100. The problem I'm having is importing shots that are longer than 12 minutes--such as an interview. On the SD card each interview is broken into several files that are around 2 GB in size. Consistently there are 4 frames missing between each portion of the clip once it gets into AVID. What in the hell am I doing wrong? Importing doesn't fix it and dragging and dropping doesn't fix it. It throws up a prompt that says something about all files in a sequence require the first clip....and I've done that each time. I've also tried automatically detecting numbered files and same result.
I get this all the time with AVCHD. So much Ive come to hate (and avoid it) Its seriously problematic for me with mc6.
Luckily the camera i receive from is a panasonic and it came with a mainconcept software that allows me to convert the avchs to p2 material, that my avid seems much happier with.
If anyone can suggest a workflow that just works, then Id love to hear it too.
