I am using the new Panasonic HDC-HS300 Camcorder that records in the AVCHD format. All working fine. I loaded up my Final cut express software, all fine - but I can't seem to get the vide that I recorded into the software. I haveconnected the USB from camcorder to Mac etc but nothing is being transferred. It seems that all I am getting from the Camcorder is 'Thumb.TDT' & 'Thumb.TID' files, which when I drag into FCE 4 it says unsupported or not a known file....Maybe the actual video files or somewhere else?. It seems to be a bit of a task to get this up and running or probably just my own lack of experience. I remember using a simple digital camera with video facilities and as soon as I plugged it in to the mac, the files were opened right away in imovie. Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions, tips or help.
I'm wondering if you were able to resolve this problem? I'm very interested in that same camcorder, and you are the first person i've heard of trying to use it with FCE4. How do you like the HS300? thanks Steve
