Kinda weird that I am at this juncture since I have pretty much had an all digital workflow, yet today I was given a Sony VX 2000 video camera to take the footage off the takes and edit them. Well, I was unable to do this in FCPX on my 2012 cMBP that is in my signature. The cord that came with the camera was a Firewire 400 and the 2012cMBP only has an 800 FW. So I went and got an 800 FW cable to connect the camera and I was still unable to get the footage imported in FCPX.... as well as in iMovie. I am using Lion 10.7.4 if that makes any difference. In doing some Google searches it looks like others have had the same issue, yet none of the results seemed to yield any tangible solutions. Has anyone else ran into this situation and figured out a workflow for importing MiniDV tapes using a 2011 or a 2012 cMBP.
