Question about Apple Final Cut Express HD for Mac

Final Cut Express Audio

I have edited a sequence on FC and everything was perfect when I played it back.  I left the computer for a break and when I came back although everything was plugged still plugged in it had the device removal warning for my drive on screen.  I restarted everything but now I cannot hear the audio. I know it's still there as the levels are moving but I just can't hear it. I have tried the obvious like the sound level on my computer. I am new to this program so any help is appreciated.

Just on a lap top not a editing suit with additional hardware? Can you hear MP3 files played in ITunes? (if not speakers or sound card hardware issue) Can you hear new files captured (if so recapturing quickest)?
N.B. Do you know there is a master sound device in system preferences?

Canon Vixia HF 20 how do you get the files onto the mac


This camera stores the video using a unique method, and does not allow you to simply drag and drop the video files - you also can not easily find the camera and play the video real time to transfer it ...
You need a compatible software program, meaning the software needs to be compatible with the camera ... there are many available ... but if you are looking to buy software check to see if it is compatible with your camera before purchasing ... I wonder, what software will you be using to edit the video?
For example, you can use Final Cut Express. It will find the camera as long as the camera is connected via USB and there is power applied to the camera ... once connected, look at the camera LCD screen and select "Computer" for the connection ... then, in Final Cut Express, select Log and Transfer (File menu), and you will get a new window. You camera should be recognized and you can select the video takes that you want to transfer and then hit "add selection to queue" and the transfer will begin.
You will first want to check in Final Cut Express where the transfers will end up on the computer, and pick a suitable location with plenty of hard drive space (Final Cut Express menu / System Settings / Scratch Disks) so you can find them if you want to at some point in the future.

Assuming you will be editing in Final Cut Express, you won't actually need to find them, but its important to select a scratch disk location that has plenty of hard drive space, and if you want to copy one of the clips to use it directly to just upload to YouTube or something like that, you'll know where they are (they will be .mov files, and can play all by themselves using Quicktime or any similar program)

As always, refer to the manual if you run into any problems ...
Hope this helps!

How to edit MTS files on Mac


Video editing software on Mac like iMovie, Final Cut Express, and Final Cut Pro still have big troubles in recognizing footages shot by AVCHD camcorders. The problem is especially obvious for those people who do not have the latest version of these editors. Because these AVCHD cameras such as Canon HF S11, HF S200, JVC GZ-HD620, Panasonic AG-HMC40, etc. are all recording videos in the format of MTS or M2TS, which have not got native supports from the above mentioned Mac editors to full extent. To make MTS files possible for editing on Mac, here I would recommend you Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac, which will convert MTS to MOV and other container formats that are accepted by often used Mac editors-iMovie, Final Cut Express, and Final Cut Pro. The application works well on Mac OS X and handles TS, TP, M2TS, M2T format as well. The following guide tells you how to convert MTS files to a workable format for editing on Mac step by step. If you are frustrated by the similar problem, please read on it to find out the solution.
1. Run Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac and click "Add" button to load MTS files shot by your camcorder to this program.

2. Click on the drop-down menu of "Format" to select a compatible format for your iMovie, Final Cut Express, or Final Cut Pro. I select "MOV-QuickTime (*.mov)" as an example.

3. Click "Settings" button to adjust audio and video parameters
You are allowed to adjust audio and video parameters like codec name, bit rate, aspect ratio, frame rate, and audio channel in the following window. In principle, the larger input values, the larger file size, but accompanying with the better file quality; the smaller input value, the smaller file size, but accompanying with inferior file quality. That is to say, if you want to do advance settings, you’d better make a balance between the file size and the file quality.

4. Start converting MTS files
Once all the above settings are finished, you can click "Convert" button to start converting MTS/M2TS AVCHD files into iMovie, FCP or FCE supported format. The interface below will show you clearly about conversion progress, time elapse, left time, generated file size, and estimated file size.  After conversion is done, you can easily find out the output files for editing via clicking "Open" button.

The end! Hope this helps.

Not able to down load video from my Panasonic videto Mac Pro 3.1


Basically mac does not like USB, it is bad and uses burst of information not suitable to video so FCP kinda ignores the option. It works ok for the transfer of non-realtime info. Can you not use DV to FW. Loads of people are having this issue as MAC have dropped it with the new MacBook to in my opinion force people to buy MBP.

Get Final Cut Pro 5.04 to communicate with my XH A1


Many HDV cameras and decks are able to play and record DV as well as the higher-resolution HDV format. Additionally, many of these HDV devices will attempt to automatically change their settings to match the format of the tape that it's playing. Here are some tips for using these types of devices with Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
Tip: Make explicit settings on your HDV device. Instead of using an "Auto" setting, make your own settings on your HDV device to keep the communication going between it and Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express. This also helps Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express keep things running smoothly with HDV devices that handle both DV-NTSC and DV-PAL.
For example, say you're using an HDV deck to capture footage from a tape that was recorded as DV-NTSC. Before capturing in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, make sure that you set the deck to DV mode specifically—don't rely on Auto mode. With some devices, you may need to disconnect it from FireWire to change the mode.
For a common capture workflow, this sequence of steps can provide the best results:
  1. Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express if it's open.
  2. Insert your tape into your HDV deck or camcorder.
  3. Use the device's menus to set it to match the format that's recorded on the tape.
  4. Connect your HDV device to your computer with a FireWire cable.
  5. Open Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  6. Choose an Easy Setup for DV or HDV (whichever matches the format recorded on your tape).
  7. Proceed to Log and Capture.
Tip: Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before changing modes. It's generally a good idea to quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before you change the mode on your device from DV to HDV, or from HDV to DV, and then re-open the application again.
Tip: Use an Easy Setup to play back non-default HDV format footage on your HDV device. You can use Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express to make your HDV device play back footage in its non-default HDV format. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i50. Or perhaps you have a 1808i50 HDV device and you want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i60. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Connect your camera to your computer.
  2. In Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, choose an HDV preset Easy Setup that matches the format of the tape's footage (you don't need to restart Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express).
  3. Your device's LCD display should automatically display a switch to 60 or 50, indicating the type of media that's being played.
Playing back non-default DV format footage on your HDV device You can also use your HDV device to play back footage in its non-default DV format too. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-PAL. Or maybe you have a 1080i50 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-NTSC. If so, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that your device is in DV/DVCAM mode.
  2. Put your device into Play/Pause mode, then open the Log and Capture window in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  3. Make sure that your device's LCD (or other readout screen) displays the same format as your tape or Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express will misinterpret what type of device you have.
Tip: Avoid recording both HDV and DV formats on the same tape. Use separate tapes whenever you want to record in a different format. If you need to record over existing footage in a different format (for example, you have a tape with DV-PAL on it, but you want to record over it with HDV 1080i50), it's a good idea to black and code the tape, or completely record over the old footage with contiguous recording in the new format. If the tape contains even a second of, say, DV in the middle of an HDV tape (or vice versa), it could cause unexpected results later when you try to capture video from that tape.
