HOw did you use Compressor to do this? This camera shoots AVCHD...you need to use Log and Transfer to bring in the footage. That's the proper workflow. I have a tutorial:
If that doesn't work, then ClipWrap2 from divergentmedia.com is the way to go.
We borrowed the camera for the filming of our project, and because I didn't know about the wrapper problem with the Panasonic HDC-HS900 camera, I simply dragged the needed files onto my external hard drive then deleted the footage on the camera so I could return it. Unfortunately, it was only after that that I realized you needed to log and transfer or grab the whole folder to keep the wrapper intact. I got around the problem by converting the files in Compressor which has worked fine except for the 1 and a half scenes shot at one location.
I'll check out ClipWrap 2. Will it mess up the quality of the footage at all?

AH...right..now I recognize your name.
Compressor on those camera originals is iffy...ClipWrap2 does well with those, all it really needs is the video files. And you will want to convert those to ProRes, of course. That's the only "messing" it does.
