Question: Errant frames when importing AVCHD
We've been using Canon Vixia HFM500 cameras in our little in-house studio for three years. During that time we've had no problem at all importing our AVCHD footage directly from the camera's SD cards and using FCP's optimized media to edit.
Just within the last three months we've started having issues with the footage.
Now, at random moments, we get these errant frames - one at a time - that pop in and cause a one-frame stutter. If I edit out the single frame, the footage is fine.
We can also work around the issue by importing the footage into Quicktime first and then from Quicktime into FCPX.
Has anyone else seen this issue?
