Loading AVCHD to FCP 6.04
on May 16, 2010 at 3:43:57 am

In about 80% of the times I load from my compact Vixia HFS 100 camcorder I have the log and transfer do the beach ball and crash FCP.
Is there a more reliable way of getting this material into FCP
Currently using 6.04 and not using Snowy OS.

Intel dual quad 3 ghz mac pro

How hard can this be???

Try copying the files from the camera to a hard drive first.

Thanks DID try and move entire disk to a hard drive but whenever I engage the L&T it beach balls.
Also tried in iMovie but no love... Strangley it has worked with certain disks but seems to work only ONCE. The next time I put in the disk it beach balls. Of course never an issue with any other tapeless format I use... guess those are just more professional SxS and XDCAM HD and P2 never an issue/

Is there an outboard transcoder that can make the files Pro Rez just like FCP??

My guts say your problem lies in a unclean installation...

But try trashing preference files for FCP before you do anything more drastic. This isn't a bug you're experiencing, or we'd all know about it.

Did the trash of prefs before no luck...
Not sure about a clean install on OS but FCP might not be. I can try on my laptop which only has FCP and original os with a few updates. Very hard to believe that this is the result of installs done but a couple years ago.

there was a problem with log and transfer that makes it crash, and it was that you had to turn airport off, and it worked fine, so try that

Checkout ClipWrap. You might also run DiskWarrior. If your directory is corrupt that could affect L&T's ability to find the data, thereby, causing the crash.
