I had an outside company shoot an event and they put the footage on my

XHD. They are P2 files which I have never worked with before.

After reading a few discussions it looks like Log and Trasfer is the way to go?

Do I need a converter ?driver etc to convert the P2 files before

I import into Log and transfer.

 

Please help.

    P2 support is built in.  Here's the workflow:

    I HOPE they kept the full card structure intact...

    The P2 driver for L&T is built in.  No download needed. There was software for your computer to recognize the 32GB cards...to get them to mount. But your footage has already been downloaded.

     

    Did they keep the full card structure? There are a lot of people who just grab the files they THINK they need, and not the whole thing. If the card structure isn't fully intact, L&T won't work. And you'll have to look at third party solutions.

    OH...It's not the card structure...it's AVCIntra.

     

    FCP 6 might not support AVCIntra. it does support DVCPRO HD P2...but AVCIntra came out after FCP 6...Hmmm...There might be an updated FCP 6 for that.  Are you running FCP 6.0.4?

    Good...you have the last version of that.

     

    OK...you don't go digging into folders with Log and Transfer. You don't even select the CONTENTS folder. YOu need to select the folder that the Contents folder and Lastclip.txt file are inside. So you have a folder called CARD_01...or whatever. And inside there is CONTENTS and LASTCLIP.TXT...and then the subfolders.  Select the CARD_01 folder in Log and Transfer. And the folder should have no odd characters in it like !@#%^&*()

    Yes...those are the choices for converting...good, so AVCINTRA is there.  Now you need to answer my last question...are you choosing the ROOT folder...not the CONTENTS folder, not folders buried in that, and NOT the files themselves. But the folder that the CONTENTS folder is inside...like I state on my tutorial demo.

    Yes...the name of the hard drive is "XHD 5/12." The drive is on the path to the footage...FCP cannot get past anything on the path that has a character like a slash /

     

    Change the drive name to XHD 5_12 and see what happens.
