Importing media to FCP 7
on Jan 30, 2013 at 9:20:01 pm

A friend of mine recently gave me a SD card with video that he wanted to put on a DVD. I attempted to import the material into FCP using the "Log & transfer" function. I was able to only import a portion of the clips (the indicator dot was only half blue). In looking at the files on the SD card it appears that there are two files created for each clip. One is a .MOV file along with a corresponding .MOI file. FCP is able to import the .MOV segment of the file but does not recognize the .MOI file.

How can I capture all the material? What sort of conversion do I need to do? Is some type of hardware/plug-in required?

Any help would be appreciated.

What camera was used to shoot this footage? That a big factor.

And don't just IMPORT the footage. it is in a codec that FCP can't work with well.

This is the typical workflow for tapeless, but if it is a newer camera format, or the card structure is incomplete, alternatives will be .

It was captured with an Everio unit (JVC makes it).

I have had good success in transferring video off other SD cards in the past. This is the first time that this has happened. If I can't find a work around I'll have to get the camcorder from my friend and see if I can capture the material through the unit.

If Log and Transfer fails, ClipWrap2 is the best option for AVCHD material.
