    I would not “export and import” to and from Motion.

    If you right click on the footage in the timeline, there is a “Send to Motion” option. This will open motion and you can do the work there. Just close and save motion, and the changes appear in the FCP timeline.
    You might have to “lasso” all the layers you want to work on in motion.

    BTW, If you decide you don’t like the results, a couple of “Command Z’s” will bring you back to your original timeline.

    Hi Lori,

    The camera shows up on the computer as a hard drive. ( You might need manufacture drivers for it to work…) Drag the files to another file and use the and transfer dialog window to import the files.

    If the files are not recognized by Final Cut, Use a free program like MPEG streamclip to convert them to quicktime’s.

    PS, Don’t assume, There are no VOB’s to convert. That’s the final destination format.

    Since there are a lack of details, I am assuming that you are creating a new sequence with a SD DV resolution, copying the entire HD timeline edit, and pasting it into the SD timeline? And then trying to output it?

    If this is so let us know and we can move on from there…

    Hi Jen,

    Just another possibility…

    I am on my 4th MBP. The previous 2 have suffered from the “too much thermal paste” issue. (too much paste between the processor and the heat sink actually causes the processor to overheat, this causes errors, and it slows everything down.)

    It’s a slim chance that this is it.

    If you are able, shut the system off until it cools down to room temp and try again. See if it runs at normal speed and then slows down again.

    And definitely let us know what it was! 🙂

  • Another possibility.

    Split up the clips to different physical drives. Yes, I know this means money, but you can put several clips on each drive and then pull from them.

    Even a USB2 portable drive will sustain around 28megs a second. Just a matter of doing the math.

    Ok, if the HVX200 only records in the DVCpro format then I’m confused.

    According to the above posts, Final Cut Pro is capable of editing DVCpro in it’s native format.
    The P2 records in the “MXF” format. Is this the native DVCPro file format?


    The only way I have found to import them is through the “Log and Transfer” dialog box, and it shows the “P2 Plug in”, and it states that the format is “P2 AVC-Intra” and it is transcoded to “Prorez 422 HD”.

    Some clarification would be helpful.

    Ahhhhh. Apparently the camera man did not follow my instructions. Thanks for the heads up. Since some of the footage has already been shot in the other format. Hmmm.

    Any thoughts on image degradation translating from AVCHD to DVCProHD?

    Thanks for the replies.

    The reason I was assuming Prorez was because that is the format the Log and Transfer window is transcoding to. I meant it for editing purposes.

    DVCproHD sounds like the way to go. Any other opinions?
