Hi jphil and Tom
I have exactly the same problem but the answer you (Tom) provided did not help in my case. Trying to "Import ->From Camera" and pointing to the AVCHD folder yields the error message: "(Folder) contains unsupported files or has invalid directory structure."
Folder structure is
3 files (.bnp, .inp, .int)
My question is: Is that not a "camera archive" of the type you talked about in the thread? Is it on principle not possible to import the files in that format/directory structure? If not, since the shots were not taken by myself, what should I ask the guy who shot the movies to give me to be able to work with them in FC?
I work with a brand new Final Cut Pro X 10.0.4 (still very clumsy with it) on an iMac 11,3 with MacOS 10.6.8.
I downloaded the latest version of codec updates from the Apple support site but no difference.
Thank you in advance
the AVCHD folder of Cam 2 (which I didn’t think of trying, being busy trying to import the one of Cam 1 - guess I’ve been living in Germany for too long) in fact works wonderfully
So it looks like the problem is not with FC’s log function but with the AVCHD folder of Cam 1, maybe a bug in the file system, a missing file or something. I will try to extract those files with AVCHD Converter or some similar tool (any suggestions?)
Thank you for solving my question by pointing me in the right direction.
