I've been importing my C100 clips into FCPX 10.0.7 and am getting aliasing problems. I've imported the same problem clips into FCP7 and there is no aliasing at all. Opening the clips from the card in Quicktime - no problem.

 

I've tried using Clipwrap - ProRes422 @25fps and ProRes422 @"don't alter" fps - and both of these work in a 1080p ProRes422 @25fps project. However it's not the best workflow

 

So what is going on with FCPX? Does anyone have another solution to this problem in FCPX?

    Select a clip in the browser and set the event viewer to show both fields in the upper right. Post a screen shot of the problem. Give complete specs of the media and what camera shot it.

    If I may contribute to this...

     

    I have a C100 and it doesn't like FCPX. FCPX imports the footage as 25i when I shot in 25p. The only way I found I could get C100 footage into FCPX as 25p footage is ti transcode it from AVCHD to PRORES before importing. Not the best workflow but it means I can store my source files where I like similar to the FCP7 days which Im not against.

     

    I think there is an issue with the C100 and FCPX comparability. If anyone has any input, please help!

    Yes. It appears that FCP X doesn't interpret Progressive Segmented Frames as progressive. I believe this was also the case with FCP 7 as well as certain other NLEs. If you do a Web search you'll find quite a bit of discussion if the various work-arounds people have used.

     

    Good luck.

    This is easily fixed.  Go to: www.mattdavis.pro/?s=c100 and you will find the answer together with other helpfull stuff.

    It may just be a monitoring issue you have — in the viewer, click the dropdown menu in the top right and under 'quality' choose 'better quality' rather than 'better performance'.  For un-transcoded Canon C100 H264 it worked for me.
