AVCHD Log & Transfer Options
on Jun 2, 2010 at 1:01:15 am

what is the best way to log & transfer my AVCHD footage to a hard drive without compromising quality, yet keeping my files as small as possible so I don't eat up so much file space? Is my only option Quicktime files? I currently use about 10gigs of space per 15 minutes of footage when transferred to a hard drive.

If you have FCP 7, ProRes Proxy is the going to give you the smallest size. It may be acceptable to some. Hard drives are very inexpensive these days. Don't let storage be an excuse. There is no reason not to transcode to ProRes or ProResLT. If you only have FCP 6, ProRes is your only option.

I'm currently using FCP 6, so you confirmed my suspicions. Thanks Steve.

Hi Steve!

My camera records (Sony HDR CX 115E) 1080p 24mb/s. When I log and transfer it to FCP (6.0.4) it becomes 14MB/s. It doesn't allow me to transfer with ProRes422 HQ but only with ProRes422. Any idea how to keep 24MB/s?
Thanx! :)
