I'm working on a project where half the footage was shot on an HDV camera (with DV tapes) and the other half was shot on a hard drive camera that uses the AVCHD format.
I've converted some of the AVCHD footage to Quicktime .MOV with Pavtube video converter, but when I put this footage on the same sequence as
the footage I shot with tape, it needs to render both video and audio.
It's going to be a REALLY time consuming process if I have to render everything.......! I have 30 hours of footage.... :o
I've tried matching everything: Frame rate, audio bit rate,etc, and the only thing that doesn't match up is the Compressor.
The former AVCHD footage says H.264, and the HD footage from tape says HDV 1060i.
PLEASE, is there any other file converting program that converts AVCHD to a .mov format with the HDV 1060i compression?
Is there possibly a way in Final Cut where I can work around this?
AVCHD can be ingested into FCP through the log and transfer window. The codec used is ProRes. Then capture the HDV as ProRes through the log and transfer tool. There's a capture preset for this. Then both will be the same format.
