Transferring XDCam files into FCP became problematic with the introduction of Snow Leopard but Sony's updates have solved most of them (proxy preview thumbnails not being visible) I am however still left with one. A corrupted image, with vertical pixel lines flashing, often of green color. This happens when I am importing files from XDCam discs either with the Sony XDCamera PDW-530 or with a Sony Disc Recorders like the PDW-1500, when using it to import to FCP 6.06 on my MacBook Pro. I have updated my XDCam Transfer to version 2.12. The proxy is uncorrupted as is the image when it is imported with log and capture (which I have to do until I find the fix for this FAM issue)
The XDCam Transfer also works fine when I am importing HD files from the new 700 HD XDCam camera. At one point I thought this was a Quick Time issue, a conflict between different old and new versions on my computer. So I cleaned that up but it did not solve the issue.
Anybody come across this problem ? [less
