TOPIC: The "Orange Device"

The "Orange Device" 8 years, 1 month ago #20960

So i went and bought this Dynex chip reader and i've hooked in up to my macbook to upload 60 different video clips to final cut express (version FCE HD 3.5.1) i can see the files through the USB on my desktop but I can't open them with FCE. When I double click the files (Unix executable files) it prompts me to choose a program to open them but FCE isn't in bold. Through the USB I can find the files via PRIVATE -> AVCHD -> BDMV ->Stream( MTS files of the video footage) OR CLIPINF (CPI files). I really want to look at this video footage to edit but I can't seem to work things out.

ALSO

I've transfered them onto a Lacie "Orange' external hard drive is there any way ill people able to overcome the unix format without using a firewire..i don't have one available at the moment.

The current version of Final Cut Express is version 4; version 4 is a couple years old now. You need version 4 to work with AVCHD files directly, as well as an Intel Mac. If you cannot afford to upgrade, or don't have an Intel Mac, there are a few recent postings on the forum to software that can convert these files to a format you could edit in FCE 3, though I am not sure what format I would recommend. I need to reach back into my memory for what FCP 3 would support so let me know if I can skip this process because you can do the upgrade.

I am sincerely sorry, but I do not understand this question; can you please try asking this again?
