Quicker encode ??

Hi all,

Been editing footage from a couple HMC 150's for a couple months now.. Image quality is quite nice.. Editing using FCP 6.06 and have been using log and transfer to import and encode to Prores files... My question is, are there any quicker solutions to import, or even use the native files from the SD cards ?? Any third party solutions ??
The encode times just take a long time to import the footage..

Thanks !!

Premiere Pro CS4.1 and Vegas and EDIUS Neo2 and EDIUS and Pinnacle Studio and many other editors will all support editing the native files.

None of them will work on the Mac (other than CS4), and I don't think CS4 on the Mac supports graphics card acceleration. So while it can be done, editing is slow and tedious on the native files. Solutions are coming (the CS4.1 update on Windows takes advantage of the graphics card and makes for some realtime performance, and EDIUS Neo2 has a new product coming this month called the Booster that accelerates AVCHD to multiple streams of realtime).

FCP will likely never support editing of the native files.

ClipWrap 2.0 is either out, or in beta, and it allows you to convert the .mts files into quicktime files that can be edited in FCP, so that might be your ideal solution, but editing performance is likely to be quite sluggish until (if) Apple adds graphics card acceleration to FCP.

OK thanks for the info... Sounds like it might be one solution.. But from my quick research it sounds like it is very CPU intensive... Maybe a good solution for some short and quick edits, not so sure about big projects.. Anyone using it in real life editing examples ??
Any other products out there ?? Does Final Cut 7 offer any improvements here ??

Thanks
