FCE:Stitching MRC1 files together

Like to get a Memory Recording Unit (HV-MRC1) for my Sony Z5U and I understand the issue re: the need to "stitch" the 21 min files together. Sony has a free software, rtu_util.exe, that does just that for FCP.
Haven't been able to find out from Sony if it's down loadable to FCE. I'm working on FCE 4 with a OS10.4
Mac. Any of you editing with FCE use a MRU/rtu_util.exe? Thanks

I should add that FCE 4 doesn't have a log and transfer capability, which is probably the answer to my question re: compatibility. Just wondering if any of you working on FCE with a memory recording unit, like the MRC1, have found a work around?

Re: FCE:Stitching MRC1 files together

Well for starters you'll have to re-wrap the MRC1K files form .m2t to .mov.

The easiest way to do this is to get ClipWrap

This will let you re-wrap all of the the .m2t files as well as stitch together spanned files. As a result there is NO image loss.
BTW, all re-wrapping the file files do is wrap the file in the appropriate codec for your system, .m2t si fine for PC but MAC (FCP/FCE) prefers .mov.

Clipwrap also does file conversion if desired.

GREAT Program.

Re: FCE:Stitching MRC1 files together

Thank you, Michael, for the link to Clip Wrap. They say that the speed of conversion is nearly as fast as a file copy. Would you agree with that? One of the big pluses to having MRC1 is that it speeds up the ingesting process. I would hope that going through the clip wrap wouldn't cost me that advantage.
Thanks, David
