Z7's Compact Flash Recorder and FCP

Does anyone know if the Z7 ships with the Final Cut Pro plug-in required to use the M2t files created by the compact flash recorder in FCP?

You can download the required FCP plugin from Sony.

Thanks Tim.....I know about streamclip....I was hoping that Matt would help us all out by posting the link that he says you can download the FCP plug-in so we can edit without the extra step of transcoding in streamclip.

Sony hasn't released the plugin yet.
It should have been released in Feb. My friend heard from Sony.

FCP Plugin released March 11th

I found this on another forum:

http://support.d-imaging.sony.co.jp/...dv/fcp_plugin/

It was just released today.
I don't use FCP so I cannot test it.

Good luck.

Thanks. That works by converting M2t files into Pro Res under Log and Transfer. Still does not recognize the files directly. Well it's better than a 2nd app.

I no longer have access to a Z7, but it's the updated version of the XDCAM Transfer software IIRC:
