Hi, this is my first post and I'm an idiot, so be gentle. I'm new to fcp7 and I'm on a steep learning curve. Editing's fun and simple, the big problem is log and transfer. I have some stock footage from a website I want to use in a sequence with Canon Eos footage saved as ProRes Quicktime movies. Let's call the stock footage bulb.mp4. Fcp7 wouldn't let me log and transfer it, so I've used MPEG Streamclip to convert it into a Quicktime movie (bulb.mov) in ProRes. In the info, it confirms the clip is now a Quicktime movie with Codec Apple ProRes 422, Integer (Big endian). I'd assume fcp7 would now recognise it when I try to log and transfer, but it doesn't. In the log and transfer pop-up it shows grey. When I try to open the full bulb folder in the log and transfer window, I get the Warning "bulb-folder" contains unsupported media or has an invalid directory structure. Please choose a folder whose directory matches supported media. What am I doing wrong? Any ideas? Exactly how big an idiot am I? On a scale of 1 to 10? Thanks for listening-
Thanks Shane, having read your previous posts I thought you'd be brutally honest with me. I've always wanted to be a 10 at something - an idiot will do. I've just imported the files, and guess what? Thanks again.
