FCPX has serious errors with Sony FS7 recorded material

fcpx fs7

Final Cut Pro has been one of the benchmarks in the world of audiovisual software, a program quite updated at a professional level that standardized a workflow with Final Cut Pro 7. The surprise came when the guys from Cupertino decided to completely renew their audiovisual editing software by applying a facelift focused on new times, a facelift (that of FCPX) that sparked anger among all professionals in the audiovisual world and it was qualified with a vitaminized imovie ...

A change that was not so serious since Apple listened (in a way) to the public and was adding everything that users demanded from the previous versions. The controversy did not stop there, and it is that every so often a new bug appears that revolutionizes the audiovisual market. Now we get a serious error of incompatibilities of FCPX that can cause you to lose the material recorded with the Sony FS7.

Apparently the problem is related to the XQD cards with which the new Sony FS7 works. An error that seems to have been recognized through work with the material of another camera, the PXW-X70 that uses XAVC HD material, but apparently what happens with the Sony FS7 cards is even more serious and can make you lose the material with which you work.

Final Cut Pro X does not recognize this type of files generated by the Sony FS7 and it will not allow you to eject these cards from your Mac, something that would force you to have to carry out the process "by force" and will further corrupt your material. It is because of this that you we recommend importing this material using any other softwareFor example Catalyst, once the material is on your Mac you will save last minute surprises and you will not lose your audiovisual material.
