“I’m trying to transcode an AVCHD folder through FCP7′s log and transfer function. Unfortunately, every time the log hits a certain clip near the end of the list, FCP quits ‘unexpectedly’. I can see the media duration for the clip in question is quite long at 1hr 35mins. I have tried setting the capture scratch to different locations on different drives but the same problem occurs. Any ideas guys? Is there a better, more reliable way to transcode AVCHD to ProRes422?”
ProRes is a lossy video compression format developed by Apple Inc. for use in post production that supports up to 4K.
