I have two clips of interviews that play fine in camera with all audio intact, but when looking at the archive or even after importing in FCPX, either from the archive or directly from the p2 card, I have no audio. I have tried to copy the clips to a different card in camera, but nothing works. Looking on Apple's forums I noticed two posts with similar issues. Does anyone else have issues with MXF files? Any solutions?
10.4, High Sierra, Mac Pro, Sonnet P2 reader
I was able to use a 10.1.4 copy of FCPX and import the video with audio intact. I believe this is a known bug, just like with other XML based video that we are seeing issues with across the board. What is interesting is that all of my other video seems to be playing just fine, etc. I have 4 channels of audio on all of those clips. The only difference is that I turned on my second wireless microphone on those other clips because of another talent got mic'd up.
Panasonic has updated drivers for High Sierra. You might check to see if you are using the latest P2 driver. I am still on Sierra (not HS) with FCPX 10.4 but I can confirm importing P2 content works successfully with all audio and video intact on that OS. I have imported from either the camera directly or using a Panasonic P2 reader with same successful results.
