Join Abba Shapiro for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing media from a camera storage card, part of Migrating from Final Cut Pro 7 to Final Cut Pro X (2011).
Now we're going to import media off of a card.…If you shot on a 7D or you shot on a camera that shoots AVCHD, you might end up…with a CompactFlash card or an SD card.…We have two slightly different scenarios.…in the case of the 7D we actually copied the contents of the card to our hard drive.…Let's go ahead and import what was on the 7D.…Again we follow the same paradigm. We go up under File > Import > Import Files and…then we target the 7D.…
With the 7D selected, let's take a look at something inside the DCIM folder.…You'll notice that inside this card there is Camera RAW, you see CR2, JPEG…files, movie files, and a grayed out file that says THM.…That simply a thumbnail file and when we import you'll notice we'll get a…warning. Don't worry about that.…You'll also notice that and remember, the last event that we brought footage…into as well as what we had checked.…So let's go ahead and click on Import and you'll see the dialog box or a warning…box about those THM files.…
If you get this, don't worry about it. Simply press Continue Import.…
