Yep, the plug-in is a piece of crap.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I really think this is a widespread problem and many people are not aware that it is happening because the plugin gives no error indication.

After quite a bit of troubleshooting I think I discovered a workaround:
-In the Log & Transfer window, click the gear icon and select Preferences
-Click the 'Clear Logging Autofill Cache' and the 'OK'
(you should also uncheck Remove Advanced Pulldown and Duplicate Frames if you're not working with 24p).

That seems to have fixed the problem for me whenever there is a troublesome batch. I'm not sure how often you need to clear the cache.

I always ingest from hard drives. The files from the CF cards are copied on to my NVS2500 either on location or when I get home from a shoot and then copied from the NVS to my drobo's as soon as I get back to the mac.

Regarding the naming convention issue, it would make much more sense if the plugin renamed the clips by appending numbers to the end of the filename rather than totally changing the name. So, MVI_6380 would become MVI_6380_1.

Canon just released an updated version of the plugin (their ears must have been burning):

As it's

The update will be available to download for free from mid-September.
then I think you are downloading the old original version. There is no reference to bug fixes but only support for the newly announced 60D.

There is no acknowledgement or mention of bug fixes to problems we have discussed on this thread.

I'm not even sure how to come up with a definitive test to determine if this upgrade works as it should. If anyone tries this upgrade please let us know how it works.

I hope they did more than add the 60D to the list.

Re: Canon EOS E1 Video Plug-In for Final Cut Pro

I've downloaded and used the last version of this plug-in (by the way, there's a new update now announced for april 24th), but it doesn't perform as promised. The description lists as one of the benefits: "create a disk image (DMG file) of the memory card that may be mounted and used for log and transfer operations in place of the physical card..."

But when I right-click over the mounted CF-card (as instructed), I do not get "Archive to disk image" among the choices in the pop-up menu. I use FCP 6.0.6 which should work perfectly with this plug-in. Any ideas what might go wrong here?

I think that you must be right clicking on the wrong icon. You need to select hierarchical list view so that you can see the card name (NO NAME in my attached screenshot) then right click on that.

Found how to get the 'hierarchic list view'. Now it works. Thanks a lot, Nigel.
