Log and Transfer problems
on May 20, 2011 at 9:44:25 pm

Hello

It seems I'm having intermittent problems with Log and Transform. Which is it is not transferring the whole clip. For example a 7:52 will have only 5:32 of it captured. I had tried unchecking "remove advance pulldown and duplicate frames" that someone had suggested. It worked at first but then the problem came back. It's basically a 50/50 shot if it's going to be successful.

Background:
FCP 7.0.3
O.S 10.5.8

I'm transferring Canon 5D clips(H.264) and importing them Apple pro res 422. I'm also changing the name of the clip


Thank You

Paul

Does the footage span 2 or more cards?

I'm transferring 5D files right now. I had a bit of the same problem. I noticed that if I did anything else in FCP while importing (Like look at another clip I just transferred) it would chop off the clip that was currently being imported. So, now I just let it do it's thing without interuption. Worth a try.

@ Chris-It's actually just from one card

Thanks Ernie- I'll just leave FCP alone while transferring

Paul, report back if it works. I'd like to know if that issue was just me.

This has been posted a number of times....(Shane Ross, maybe?)

Yeah, let FCP do its thing and don't try to multiple-task.

I can attest that worked for me. No more incomplete clips.

So I imported the 5D footage without a hitch after leaving FCP alone

So definitely do not do other tasks while importing with Log and Transfer.

I do wonder why FCP makes it possible to do other tasks in the first place. Do they eventually want to have the Log and Transfer going in the back ground while other work is done?

Canon writes the plugin, so maybe the fault lies there.
