Advanced Topics in Transferring File-Based Media

This section describes some of the advanced topics and issues that an editor may encounter when transferring file-based media; for example, how to retransfer clips from source media when transferred clips become unavailable, how to view spanned clips, how to archive file-based media for safekeeping, and how to set log and transfer import settings.

Many different factors are involved when transferring media from advanced camcorders, depending on the type of camcorder. File-based camcorders now record media with many choices of file formats, video and film workflows, and transcoding options. For detailed information about specifically supported camcorders, video formats, and editing workflows, see Professional Formats and Workflows, available in Final Cut Pro Help.
