Are you using Log & Transfer in FCP? What version of FCP are you running?

What camera was the footage shot on?

Log and Transfer doesn't work, the .mov file is greyed out and I'm using FCP 7.0.3
The footage was shot on a Canon XHA1s

Sorry, I meant Log & Captute. You'll need to match up the correct HDV setting from Easy Setup and capture the tape to your storage area.

Log & Transfer is only for tape less media (CF, SxS, etc).

Ok, so you shot the camera connected to a Focus FS. If so, all you need to do is drag and drop your files from the device onto your storage system. Import should also be drag and drop.

Now if those files won't imoort into FCP we need to look at what type of files you shot - MPEG4, MXF, QuickTime, etc. and we need to know what codec is used inside of that wrapper. You may need to transcode your footage so FCP can handle it. Or you may need a plugin for FCP to recognize the footage...all depends on what you shot.

What FCP 7 plugin do I need to import from CF Card into FCP, or is it a Canon plugin?

The problem sounds like it's with the footage you shot to your Focus. Without knowing more about that product I don't think I can help you. You shouldn't need a plugin provided you shot a Quicktime format on the Focus and you have the appropriate codecs on your machine. You're not bringing in a CF card as I assume those files are standalone files. If you have additional problems I would suggest contacting Focus Enhancement support about your product and workflow.

If the files open and play in QuickTime then you could transcode to a known FCP codec, like ProRes. Compressor may be able to see them and batch transcode for you (you can also use MPEG Streamclip).

Thanks For all the help...It took sometime but I believe I have found the solution...Downloaded from http://www.vitecmm.com a file that converts Quicktime Files for a Focus device within seconds for use with FCP 7 or FCPX....It's called HD File Converter Pro Updater...
