Right now I'm importing some footage from 5D cards through log and transfer.
FCP keeps randomly cutting clips short - importing 8 min of a 10 min clip, etc. The clips and end points seem entirely random - different each time I retry the process. I checked the drive - it's formatted extended (not journaled) so there isn't any size limit.
Does anyone know what the problem could be? I'm on a deadline, and I need this to work.
If you are connecting via usb, the CF card from the camera will mount on the desktop. Copy the .mov files from the card to your hard drive. You should be able to import the files from there.
The 5D2 has no Firewire connection.
Final cut will not recognize the 5D2, nor should it, nor do you need it too !
suggest you transfer the canon mov videos to prores422 with a mac hd video converter. http://www.regnow.com/softsell/nph-softsell.cgi?item=17041-51&affiliate=584...
