capturing Panasonic SDR-57
on Jan 7, 2011 at 7:40:06 am

I'm trying capture footage shot a Panasonic SDR-57 (SD memory card not tape) camcorder into Final Cut Pro. It connects using a USB. FCP doesn't seem to recognize it.

The best I've been able to come up with is import and export via iMovie but it losses quality.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Final Cut does not handle any USB capture.

It has to be firewire, a camera manufacturer whose written a 'log and transfer' plugin, or some form of tricking FCP into using the files.

If you can see them at the finder level you can use compressor to transcode them into a higher quality codec.

Best,

Jeff G

Thanks Jeff, that's helpful. I have used Mpeg streamclip to convert to mov. Amazing stuff these forums, people sharing what they know. Cheers.
