Two filmmakers chasing the dream of producing their first feature film...
...and financing it solely through winning video contests.

I feel it is my solemn duty to protect future filmmakers from the tyranny of time-wasting, mind-boggling, totally unnecessary problems with the HVX200.

While yes, this is an awesome camera, and yes, in theory, the P2 card process should make you a happier person... the fact is, it is NOT a perfect system.

For those of you who stumble across this blog while attempting to solve these totally bewildering problems, I hope my 3 hours of suffering makes your life a little easier:

If clips in the log and transfer window in Final Cut 6.0.5 read "Error: No Data" with a little red exclamation mark, then you simply need to go to the small gear symbol in the upper middle of the window, click preferences and uncheck the "Advanced pulldown" box. Then try again. That should solve your problem.

If your Final Cut, for whatever reason, simply stops recognizing the clips on your P2 card ALTOGETHER, then check to see if you have FxFactory installed on your computer. If you do, that bullshit little plugin pack is causing your problem. Either update it to the latest version 2.0.9 (as of 8/30/09) or if you don't have stupid OSX Leopard or Snow Leopard or whatever the latest BS is, DELETE IT by opening FxFactory, going to the action menu and selecting uninstall. If that stupid option isn't available for whatever stupid gosh darn reason (man am I censoring myself), then delete the fucker (I give up) by going to HD --> Library --> Plugins and delete the fuck out of anything FxFactory related.

Thank you and good night!
