    AVCHD and MC

        This procedure applies to Windows PCs using MC 4.05.

    I used Main Concept's AVCHD to P2 transcoder to create the

    translated files and card directory structure.  The program is free

    and may be downloaded from the Panasonic website. You will have to

    provide an email address for them to send you the download link.

         In MC, if there is no Import P2 option under the Files pull-

    down menu, make sure that AMA Volume Management is turned off under

    Settings\AMA\Volume Mounting.  

        I am assuming that you have created a bin for the files

    already.  It is a two stage import procedure.  First, Go to Import

    P2 in the Files pull-down menu and select Clips to Bin.  Navigate

    to the Contents directory of the virtual card and highlite the

    "Contents" directory title and hit OK.  The clips will appear in

    the bin and can be viewed in the source window. If you place the

    bin view to "text" and expand the window enough to see the drive

    column, you will notice that the drive is designated as "Virtual".

    This means that your media location will disappear as soon as you

    exit MC. If you go back into MC, you will find that the media will

    be "OFF LINE" and you cannot Relink.  So once you have moved the

    clips to bin, do not exit MC, otherwise you will have to start


         In the second stage, you will first select (highlite) all the

    clips in the bin.  Next, go to Import P2 again, but select "media"

    this time.  Your clips will be imported for real. This may take a

    few minutes - depends on the number of clips.
