Hi all,

i've my first hvx200 footage recorded. i've put it to my external hd with panasonics p2 content management software. but i can't find out how to convert the mxf files into fc pro compatible mov files.

from now on i will import my footage directly into fc pro via the "import p2 panasonic" function.

can anyone please help me out?

thanks a lot.

fcp 5.1.4 should work, thats what I use.
just go to
File
import
Panasonic P2

this maybe where you are going wrong: dont just import the mxf files
Import the whole contents folder with everything in it, including mxf files, video, clips, audio, icons and so, just import the whole contents file
thats how I do it.
