How do you import motion 5 documents to FCPX?

how do you import motion 5 documents to FCPX?

Yes it is 64-bit.  I'm still getting used to that and have see it does make a difference.  I am at work at the moment so I cannot run the conversion utility, but that looks promising.
On a related/similar note, before work this AM. since the catalog conversion failed, I decided to try to import all my images.  They are sitting on an external hard drive.  The good news is that when I started the import, PE13 recognized the tags that were assigned in PE5.  That was very important to me.  .
So, it looks like I may have two feasible paths to follow:
1.  Re-import all the images and re-use my tags
2.  Run the 64-bit catalog conversion utility and import/restore my catalogs
I frankly cannot tell which option is easier, better or preferred.  My objective is to get back to an arrangement whereby I can view all my photos in the organizer (by catalog).  My catalogs are quite simple.  Most all images were in a base catalog.  I was running on a 2006 WinXp machine using PE5.  The catalog had ~ 30000 images.  It was bogging down when I'd scroll through the catalog.  I recently created catalog #2 for some special activities (I.e., Kids Sports) so that I could view and retrieve them easily.  I might have 1000 images in this catalog.
My preferred viewing is to see everything in one catalog, and use tags to segregate them for specific viewing/usage.  I suspect that has a performance impact.  Any thoughts on best approach?
Thank You

    How can I import MP4-files in FCPX? Should i convert the files? Do you know good (free) software?
    Thanks!

    MPEG-4 isn't nearly enough information. There are many other factors that determine whether it will work in FCP. Many MPEG-4 files can be imported and optimized directly into the application.

  • How do you highlight multiple documents rapidly, rather than having to click on the document and on "command" one at a time?

    How do you highlight multiple documents rapidly, rather than having to click on the document and on "command" one at a time? Right now, when I'm trying to highlight documents to export, I have to click on each document individually. Is there a way to highlight one document while scrolling down the list until all desired documents are highlighted? I would like to rapidly be able to do this to save time when I am exporting or saving multiple files from my documents to an external drive, CD-Rom or cloud storage.

  • How do you import photos from a library on an external drive to the current library running in iPhoto?

    How do you import photos from a library on an external drive to the current library running in iPhoto? I have a few different pictures in each library and would like to have all my pictures in both libraries. The library on the external drive is my backup. I would appreciate any help.

    Depends on exactly what you want to do.
    Just move some of the Photos? FIle -> Export from one and export the shots to the Finder. Then import them to the other.
    This User Tip
    https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-4921
    has details of the options in the Export dialogue.
    Move the photos and all versions and metadata: use iPhoto Library Manager it's the only way to do this while preserving everything. Merge two Libraries into one?
    If you have Aperture 3.3 or later and iPhoto 9.3 or later you can merge libraries with Aperture.
    Otherwise the only way to merge Libraries is with the paid ($20) version of iPhoto Library Manager

  • How Do You Drag A Document You Have On A Mac Onto An External HardDrive??

    Ive just recently bought a Macbook Pro and was wondering how can you drag a document onto an external hard drive. Is it the same as Windows?? Because everytime I try that, it wont let me :s.
    If anyone could help it would be awesome because I need to know how to do this so I can put my cousework I have done on my MacBookPro, onto my external hard drive.
    Thanks
    Carol-Anne

    Your external drive is likely formatted NTFS.
    Take the drive to the PC and remove all the data on it and right click on it and format it exFAT or FAT on the PC, then place the files back on.
    (Formatting a drive will remove all data on it.)
    Take it to the Mac and it can use it just fine.
    No need to buy any software, it will have to be constantly updated and tends to cause problems and glitches.

  • How do you import media and metadata from Windows Photo Gallery database?

    How do you import videos and photos and their metadata from a Windows Photo Gallery database into the Elements Organizer, especially metadata that is only contained in the Photo Gallery database file (pictures.pd6) and not embedded in the video and photo media files themselves?
    And when you import the metadata into Organizer, do you get all of these available elements?

    Geotags
    Also, if the media files in Organizer are ever moved to another PC, is there a way to migrate all of the Organizer's metadata with the files to use with another instance of Premiere Elements?

    OK.  I think we're getting close to the answer.
    The reason I'm asking about this is because for Photo Gallery, media files can NEVER be moved without losing all database metadata.        I'm sorry I didn't know this when I started with Photo Gallery and I think I've learned an important lesson:  Be sure you can move your work BEFORE you start.
    So, to clarify Organizer's behavior, let me ask the question another way.  Let's say that in a few years, after I've added tags, people, places, etc. to hundreds of media files in Organizer, I decide to get a new PC.   When I move all that stuff to my new petabyte drive on the new PC, do we know if Premiere Elements Organizer on the new PC would be able to read the original Organizer's metadata?

  • How do you delete a document in Pages?

    How do you delete a document in Pages? I keep trying to and it's still there...very annoying. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    Where have you saved the document, or are you talking about a template?
    You do not delete any documents inside Pages. You must locate them in Finder (probably in the Documents folder) and then drag them to the Trash.
    If you need basic help with using a Mac, Apple has helpful videos and tips in their Support section of their website.

  • How do you import copyright controlled cds into Itunes?

    Hi
    how do you import copyright controlled cds into Itunes?
    When i put the cd into my computer, Itunes does not read it like a regular cd. It does not show up in my source list.
    I just want to put the songs on the cd onto my ipod.
    The cd will play in windows media player and i was able to save the cd as wma files onto my computer, and then i tried to import those files, but Itunes says the file is copyright controlled, and the only way for itunes to import it is with the orignal cd? The original cd was in my D drive the whole time, but it still will not let me import.
    I also tried physically looking into the CD for the music files, but those aren't there. The cd is like an enhanced cd where if you look into the drive for files there are no files except for 2 icons. The actual icon the open the player to play the cd and a uninstall icon.
    does anyone know how to do this? PLEASE HELP!

    I have downloaded the latest version of Itunes. I don't think that is the problem. Music companies have started issuing "copyright controlled" cds now especially on import versions of cds. I have the original cd, but Itunes cannot import it due to the copyright because it is protected. I read the "help" file on the cd, and what it does is you can play it as much as you like, you can make a copy of the cd only 3 times. The copy of the CD is also copyright protected. I have tried Itunes, WMA, Sonicstage, Sonic and etc programs, but nothing has worked.
    Hopefully, someone from APPLE will now what I mean about the copyright controlled CDs. I only want to be able to listen to the music on my IPOD. Nothing has worked

  • I made a picture collage in pages from the pictures in iPhoto.  You used to be able to print and then say save as a jpeg to iPhoto and that option is gone.  How do you turn your document into a jpeg now.

    I made a picture collage in pages from the pictures in iPhoto.  You used to be able to print and then say save as a jpeg to iPhoto and that option is gone.  How do you turn your document into a jpeg now?

    If you chose print, you can save as PDF. If you open the saved PDF in preview, you can save as JPEG, GIF, PNG. FYI you can crop in preview.
    Another option is you could use command + shift + 4 to do a screen shot of a specific part of of the screen.

  • How do You import an MS Access MDB into Dreamweaver CS5?

    Hi;
    How do You import an MS Access MDB into Dreamweaver CS5?
    Developed a DBase application for a vertical market using MS Access. Worked on it for over a decade.
    Have been in contact with a rather large company and we are talking about licensing my program with them.
    BUT; they want it "On the Cloud"
    Here is what needs to be accomplished. Ideally a user can log in from anywhere, (similar to on-line banking), enter data and print reports.
    Read this a few days ago:
    "If I were in your situation and felt that there's a growth market for your offerings, I would personally go with a PHP/MySQL-based model. The printing issue can be readily resolved with PDF-based output.
    So the Querys, Forms and VBA Code needs to be brought in from MS Access to Dreamweaver.
    Can this be done?  Or is there a better way that I haven't learned yet?
    Would someone be so kind and point me in the correct direction.
    Thank You for taking the time to read this post.
    Andy

    >Can this be done?
    No, not any way that I know of. You would need to completely rewrite this as a web application. Obviously the MS Access tables can be migrated to MySQL and the Access queries converted to views. But the forms and custom code needs to be written from scratch in html and your choice of server side programming language.
