Move Media 100 Files to Final Cut
on May 10, 2010 at 10:59:19 pm

Hey guys... I just went though a major upgrade... from Media 100 8.2.3 to Final Cut Pro 7.0.2.

What's the easiest way to move all the files in my bin from Media 100 to Final Cut?

Please lay it out for me step-by-step, as I'm a bit of a novice.

Thanks so much for the help!

Choose file/import/files (or folder) and import them into an FCP project. They may or may not work actually if they use a proprietary codec... if you can open them in QuickTime, any wierdness can be fixed so they DO work in FCP.

Wow, the last time I touched a Media 100 was version 6. But I do recall that it could export EDLs of various sorts. Perhaps now it'll even create XMLs, too.

I recommend a test, using a single project: export every blessed kind of file you can from M100 that reflects the edit timeline. See if any of the exported files work in FCP. If you stumble upon a combination or two that work, you're in business: you can compare precisely what came through (ins-outs, transitions, graphics, bins, etc.

Then there's the issue of that hardware-only M100 codec.

Hi all:
I just moved into Final Cut (finally) from the latest version of Media 100 suite (10.6). Brought a timeline over from M100 for the first time (exported the XML) and I'm seeing a pretty severe color shift in the media...most of the scenes are somewhat "washed-out" looking compared to how they looked in M100. I have a high-end HD monitor that is setup correctly. Any experience with this?
Thanks!
