Hi all, I am sure that this subject has been discussed over and over. I have been importing clips from a NEX 5N first having to extract the MTS files and then wrap them in clipwrap. In my quest to do things better and quicker I found that in the FCP X supported camera list this camera is supported.



Sony Alpha SLT-A33AVCHD / H.264Memory
Sony Alpha SLT-A55VAVCHD / H.264Memory
Sony DSC-TX10AVCHD / MPEG-4Memory
Sony DSC-TX100AVCHD / MPEG-4Memory
Sony DSC-TX100VAVCHD / MPEG-4MemoryFCPX does not support footage recorded in 1080-60p from this Camcorder
Sony DSC-WX10AVCHD / MPEG-4Memory
Sony NEX-5AVCHD / H.264Memory


So my question is what's the secret? why when I connect this camera its not recognized?


Any help and comments are more than welcome


IMAC 3.06 Ghz and 4 GB Ram, Mac OS X (10.6.1), FCP ver.7.0
