Transferring File-Based Media

The process of transferring file-based media is similar to that of capturing tape-based footage using the Log and Capture window, although it is often much faster because you avoid the inconveniences of tape. After you record your media using a device such as a Panasonic P2, XDCAM, or AVCHD camcorder, you can connect the device to your computer and transfer the media into Final Cut Pro using the Log and Transfer window.
