I've notied that QuickTime has hijacked the AVCHD folder from my cameras memory card, forcing me to open bundle up in quick time.  This is now preventing me from importing my movie files into Final Cut Pro x because it's a bundle, rather than a folder.

 

It is a folder, browsing to it on a windows or linux envrioment shows it as a directory, but on OSX in finder it acts like its a bundle file.  This a really frustrating feature of QuickTime that I don't want nor need.

 

How do I disable this silly feature?

    Not sure what you mean by a "bundle." If you are referring to a "package" file, then simply hold down the "Control" key as you mouse-click the Finder icon to open the context menu and select the "Show Package Contents" option. If a "package" file, it will then open up like a folder.

    Ok, found a workaround from the creative cow forums:

     

    -"Not exactly your situation, but I can't see the contents of private folder in finder.


    I can open the private folder with finder, but then have to right click and "show package contents" on the AVCHD folder, then repeat for the BDMV, then open the stream folder to get to the mts files.


    Not sure what the issue is that causes this. Someone on the apple FCPX forums suggested it might be a misformed or hidden name in the file directory that ML/FCPX doesn't like."-

     

    So, right click on your AVCHD "bundle" and select show package contents. Then find the BDMV folder and do the same thing. Your MTS files will be selectable now.

     

    Hope this helps

    I found that importing from a Canon M500 provides inconsistent filenaming at time -- haven't figured out why exactly..

     

    Expand your folder (using show package contents -- read through the whole thread if you don't know how to do it) to the BDMV folder / directory

     

    Under AVCHD/BDMV:

     

    rename:  index.bdm to INDEX.BDM   (make sure it's in ALL CAPS)

    also make sure MOVIEOBJ.BDM is in ALL CAPS as well.

     

    Using 10.8.2, the "package" / "bundle" magically disappeared.

     

    Hope it helps someone.

     

    Apple, you reading this?

    I deleted the INDEX.BDM and MOVIEBJ.BDM and it now opens as a folder. These files arent needed to import he video files.
