idiot P2 conversion question
on May 16, 2008 at 9:10:33 pm

I am being lazy here, because I am burned out from rigging all week. I got called to DP a spot at the last minute with my HVX. I have the firestore. I did everything right except left the file type on p2 by accident. This was from a friend who rented it last week.

I never got into P2 and usually use .mov and drag and drop. I organized my reel. How do I convert the P2 files? I just want to see them. The editor already has them. i just want to take a look at my work for scrutiny (LOL).

Thanks.

Burned out and lazy. I also have FCP 5 Studio.

Import P2 or Log and Transfer from the File menu- not sure which as it depends on your version of FCP.

I tried to import and it wouldn't let me. I have FCP 5, not the new 6. I do have all the software updates. Do I load a p2 filter. Again, since I have a firestore, I have never used P2.

It won't let you how- you aren't seeing the clips on the firestore in the log and transfer window or?? You might simply have too old of a system. I'd check with Focus Enhancements as well.

I am seeing the .mxf clips, but I can't highlight any of them. I downloaded the PC2MS AC intra software decoder.

Again, I am very tired from my week and am not concentrating well. There may be something I am missing.

Hopefully you got a good nights' sleep and you are thinking more clearly.

For FCP5.

Thank you.

After much sleep, it is plain as day.

You have to use the organize P2 function on the firestore before trying to import it on FCp did you do that?
