Hi everyone. I'm trying to import some 1080p AVCHD footage from my JVC GZ-HD300 Everio camcorder. The files are in .MTS format. I've searched around everywhere for help with this, and while people have had similar issues, I couldn't find this specific one. I coped the AVCHD footage folder to an external hard drive, since my brother needs to use the camera as I edit the footage. First the Log and Transfer kept crashing, so I tried a different external hard drive. Now it works. I think that other drive is about to go bye-bye. But anyway... I successfully imported one clip, and while the audio came through fine, the video is totally screwed up. I noticed the thumbnails of the video in the Log and Transfer screen were mostly grey, with a small strip of the top of the frame of the video showing. That's how the converted clip plays as well. Only the top of the frame shows, and it's very blocky and distorted. There must be something wrong somewhere. Some incompatible codec maybe. I even uninstalled Perian as suggested elsewhere. I'm not capturing off of the camera directly, I copied the AVCHD folder (right from the root of the camera's hard disk just to make sure I got every file) to another drive. I don't think it would matter whether the footage is on the camera or not, because it shows up as an external hard disk anyway (it's an HDD camera), but I could be wrong. Also, please note that I also tried connecting the camera to my MacBook Pro and having FCP look at the files directly on the camera. The thumbnails still looked messed up in the Log and Transfer window. So I'm thinking that the problem doesn't lie with trying to convert the files from outside of the camera. I will, however, try again to convert them directly from the camera the next time I get my hands on it. Is there a specific "Easy Setup" I'm supposed to do before I do Log and Transfer? Does it matter if I convert to Apple Intermediate Codec or ProRes 422? No matter what settings I've tried, the clip thumbnails still look messed up, so I'm guessing the footage will still import as such as well... Must fix problem... any advice would be greatly appreciated!
