Imported Footage image-jump
on Jan 26, 2012 at 1:25:43 pm

Hello Community,

I imported some footage with the Panasonic AGAF 101 (PH 1080/50i)

The image looks great in the camera but when I import the material into FCP the image doesn't flow (almost jerky and jumpy image as if an image is missing).

Is there a configartion that migh be set wrongly in FCS?

Many Thanks

It's hard to tell.

You say nothing about HOW this footage made its way into FCP, its media container (QT, AVI MXF, etc.) nor its codec (ProRes 422, MPEG, H.264, Photo JPEG, etc.) Without that information, people can only guess.

Hi Dave,
I shot on AVCHD, 1080/50i (Shot on Panasonic AGAF 101) and logged and transferred into FCP 7. I use an IMac 27' with SSD Harddrive. The footage looks jumpy (and kind of weak in terms of color) in FCP, as well as if eported as QTime (ProRes). Any idea???
Many Thanks

It sounds like the footage resides on your lone internal drive, which is also the System Drive, which is an FCP no-no. It should be on an external FW 800 hard drive to maintain adequate bit rate for editing.

I have two harddrives, HD1 which is the Main drive on which FCP is installed and HD2 where I store the footage. Isn't that at least equaly good as an external FW?

I meant 1 SSD which is the drive and 1 HDS where the footage is stored.

The connection needs to be at least FW800, which is true. I'm not familiar with that particular camera's method to Log & Transfer, but you should have all your footage end up as quicktime movies in the ProRes 422 codec.
