log&transfer on an external hard drive: FCP asking for space on my home drive ??
on Apr 16, 2012 at 5:43:34 pm

Hello,

I have a 16Go SD card with a filled with 15Go of data from a Panasonic camera. The biggest shot is 5 1/2 hours long.
I want to log&transfer it all on an external hard drive.
There is 130Go of space on the external HD and 30Go of space on my home drive. You would think: no worries.
However, FCP keeps telling me that there is not enough space on my home drive to do the transfer.

To go around this, I have started to log&transfer the first half of that long shot. It worked. But now that I want to do the second half, the same message appears again and again, even if I split the second half in smaller parts.
Any ideas?

Thanks!

Did you change the project's Scratch Disk settings?

As a point of safety, you should also copy the ENTIRE CARD into its own folder first.

FCP is only going to ingest to the HD you tell it to.
If you have enough space on Drive X and that is your capture scratch, then it all goes there.
