Is there a way to import Canon's ACVHD into FCP 7? If not directly, any other way you might think of?

OS X 10.6.8
MacPro 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Dual

Log and Transfer.

Derek: What FCP Audio/Video Setting should I use? I will be importing directly from the camcorder so I assume there needs to be a particular setting, no?

Never having done this type of transfer before, it took my brain a while to catch on to what you meant by Log & Transfer. GOT IT! Thanks.

Hi All: Well, I have not been successful in loading the ACVHD, even though I tried the suggestion of bringing the files in through Log & Transfer. When I open Log & Transfer, the files do not automatically come in, so I click on "Add Volume", which allows me to see the files (light gray). When I choose the files, I get a warning that reads:

"STREAM" contains unsupported media or has an invalid directory structure. Please choose a folder whose directory structure matches supported media.

Any idea what I am doing incorrectly?

You need to copy the entire contents of the card. If you have done so, you need to add the whole volume, not just the clips, so step out of to the main folder and mount the folder containing the contents of the card.

I tried importing each of the folders and got the same message. So, I gave up and decided to use one of the video converters I have and it is converting the files. Bizarre that FCP cannot recognize any of the folders, including the main folder that holds all the info from the camcorder. Life goes on. Go figure!

Yea, I heard Avchd is sticky, and if you tweak the file structure slightly, even in a way that makes sense for most people, FCP may not recognize it. I haven't had issues with Avchd, but I've been doing more work in PPro, and PPro only requires the mts files for import.

You can also try Clipwrap, which has better repute than what you can get on search results these days.

Do you need to download a plug-in from Canon for that camera?
