Hi there, I just shot one of my first extensive shoots with my TM-900 and I need some help transferring the 1080/60p files from the memory card on the camera to my MacPro. I'm connecting it, but the files aren't appearing in Final Cut Pro as files that I can import. If I try to view the videos directly on the cam, it's no problem, but they're simply not there when I try to connect. I also try to just take the files directly from the memory card, however, I don't know which folder on the Sandisk the videos from the camera are placed. And since I'm sure they are encoded, I don't know which to manually take from the card. I've shot a few test 1080/60p vids directly on the camera's hard drive and transferred them without a problem, however, taking them off of the card is providing me with a lot of frustration.
Please advise, and any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Thats because those files are not considered fully conforming AVCHD files and (right now) Final Cut Pro cannot see them to import. iMovie will see them but they will be crossed out and you wont be able to import them. The footage looks really really good, but what do you with it after you shot it? I think Adobe Premier 5.5.5 will import these.
Otherwise why dont you try this 1st since IM sure this will transode that into just about anything you want to use it for - http://www.pavtube.com/imedia-converter-mac/
Even if you can get this into a pro res file running at 60fps, will your system be able to play it back at full frame rate? Try it and see. Or try some other format. Hope that helps.
