I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-HXPV camera which shoots 1080 50p.
I need to transcode this footage into .mov files in order to incorporate into a FCP X project based on QT.mov 25p files.

I understand that "Clipwrap" could be the way forward but I wonder what would be the operating procedure once I have downloaded "Clipwrap".

ps I also use "Streamclip" but at the moment only to convert .mov to mpeg4.

You can download a free trial of clipwrap that will give you a flavour of what to expect.

It's a very simple procedure that looks at your media and imports it onto your computer, you can decide whether you want it to stay as HDV or transcode to ProRes, you then just import it it straight into FCP. No problems.

I used clipwrap with my Z7 and S270 when I had them and found it to be a very useful piece of software as I could never get the sony plug in to work!

Just had a look at the web-page of Clipwrap and if my memory serves me correct did this company have a software out last year and a lot of people had trouble cancelling the FREE TRIAL ?. I cant remember what the software was.

I did the free trial last year and it was fine. It is limited by bringing in only the first 30 seconds of any clip. I never bought the programme in the end because I have moved on from HDV.

Hi Ron I still have clipwrap and don't use it now I am on P2, you are welcome to have it if we can find a way to transfer the licence to you.

Thanks Gary, please let me know if it is possible and we can agree a fee/donation.

However I'm having difficulty in getting this iMac to recognise anything coming off my HX9V, albeit I fully appreciate that I will not be able to play back 50p stuff.

I feel some more questions coming on but will need to think these out.

Hi
Does iMovie or FCP 7's Log & Transfer recognise interlaced-mode footage?
The other pitfall may be that having 50p and 50i recorded to the same SD card can cause problems with transfer software 'seeing' the files.

Ron - In some ways I guess I'm as deeply involved as you are with some things, having bought my i7 iMac with its 8gb ram etc and doing FCPX because I now find I'm in a stew with trying to get a compatible burner for Lion OS, but what I can say is, buy ClipWrap as I have done. It's a very handy prog to have and only costs about thirty something quid. The freebee allows up to a minute of any clip to be edited if you think you can get by with that but is it worth the mucking . . .
