About the Log and Transfer Window

Many new and advanced camcorders record footage as files stored on devices such as optical discs, hard disks, and solid-state cards. You use the Log and Transfer window to transfer file-based media into your Final Cut Pro projects. The Log and Transfer window provides controls for previewing file-based media, setting In and Out points, logging, and transferring clips into Final Cut Pro. You can then edit the resulting media files just as you would edit media files in any other format.
