    oh sweet!
    I do have onLocation on the same box that vegas is on, just never had to use it yet. I guess now would be a great time to start.

    thanks!

    so then i try to use log and transfer, i drag the clip into the part where it says " drag here .. blah blah" and it starts to transfer, giving a moving icon, saying transferring 1 clip etc.... but then it just goes idle.... i have googled this to no avail, finding many with similar problems, but none with any solutions that have worked for me yet...

    i tried trashing my fcp preferences... nothing...

    i restarted the computer, nothing... quit final cut, reopened.. nothing...

    can anybody help me? has this happened to you? i am sooooo frustrated witht this! ive had the hvx for almost a week now, and have not been able to use it, because i cannot get any test footage onto my comptuer!

    thanks in advance, wes.
    Wes,
    I have been having the exact problem you are talking about...choppy playing in viewer window in Log and Transfer and stalling when I try to ingest. I discovered that this primarily occurs only with very long clips (more than like 20 minutes in length). Our students had been shooting in 720/30P. Goodness knows why! But, I did find out that just by changing to PN, the choppiness in the viewer goes away for long enough when you play it to pick ins and outs. This also seems to relieve the problem with long clips stalling on ingest. 24PN also works fine. Anyone have any ideas how to fix the 30P problem or the general choppiness in the viewer in L and T?

    you shouldnt log and transfer directly from a connected camera. copy the media to your computer (or external hard drive) first.

    i think this might be the culprit in your choppy situation...

    firewire is for capturing.
    use the usb cable.

    P2 Viewer creating nested Contents folders ... After creating virtual hard drives with P2Viewer I find it has created new Contents folders nested within the original Contents folder on my hard drive. The new folders contain all the subfolders but are empty. sometimes the nesting will go more than one level deep. Am I doing something wrong with P2Viewer and has anyone else had this problem.

    I hope I'm asking this in the right place.

    I had the "creating multiple empty folders" issue, but didn't really pay attention on how it happened or what I did wrong, I just deleted all the empty folders and kept what I needed. I would love to know what the hec I did to make that happen!

    I'm doing the same, deleting the unnecessary folders, but I'm always scared I might delete the wrong ones. I will use P2Viewer with dummy data to see if I can figure out what causes it, but hopefully someone comes up with a solution.

    Ok, did what I should have done, before asking for help. I spent a bit of time practising with dummy data. When making a Virtual Card, if the folder selected for the destination is not above the existing "Contents" folder, a new "Contents" folder will be created within the existing one. I should have known that from what I had read before. i still have a problem however. When exporting to P2 format from Premiere CS5 it creates a directory structure beginning with a "Contents" folder off the selected destination folder, but I cant get P2Viewer to load the clips into the P2Viewer bin.

    What is the significance of the folder with the alpha numeric name that P2Viewer creates between the destination folder and the Contents folder when Ingesting? I will read Barry's book again on the subject, but in the meantime if anyone has an explanation it would help.
