Hi, noobie question and I've searched the forum and there doesn't appear to be a specific answer to my problem.
Trying to import AVCHD from a Panasonic HDC-TM300 via USB into FCE 4 (PBP 15" 4GB RAM, 10.6.4) using Log and Transfer - FCE sees the files and I can drag them into the Queue window, I do get a 'files transferring icon' next to the dragged file and it says it's transferring but the progress bar doesn't move and after a minute or so, it tells me it's idle and nothing else happens. When I now click the 'files transferring icon' it changes to a Red Octagon which suggests a problem.
I've set up a project in the browser which is recognised in Log and Transfer.
As a work around, I can import onto the computer using iMovie and edit the files there and I can import the unedited imported iMovie files which are now .MOV files, however it's an extra step which is a pain and I'm not sure it there is a quality hit.
The properties of the .MOV file are that it has changed size from 90 odd MB to 1.1 GB, vid rate is 25 FPS, Fm size 1920 x 2080, Compressor - AIC Data Rate 13.9 MB/SEC - Audio is 48.0 KHz and 16 Bit Interger.
So is there a way not to have to go through iMovie and if there isn't does this work around have any quality hits by doing it that way?
