Maryanne Galvin asks:

In the Log & Transfer window of FCP 7, how do I empty the Log & Transfer window? Every time I bring in new material from the 7D card, the ‘old’ footage from prior cards/shoots remains in the log list.

Larry replies: Easily.


In the top left corner of the Log & Transfer screen, click the small “Eject” icon.

This removes the existing library and allows you to load a new one.

    HI Larry
    My friend dragged the ” log and transfer window “to it’s fullest screen size and now i can’t revert it back to the full browse file and view screen format for transferring my AVCHD files in to FCP7! Any thoughts please for someone who is very happy with FCP7 here in London UK! Although i try to drag the sides with the cursor to make it smaller and rediscover where the heck the browse window is i am still at a loss!
    Many thanks for you time and i was lucky to hear you the other year in Kensington allowing us 7 people a little more time converting to X!!! I’m still here but content!

    All the best

        Hi Lea
        As no help was forthcoming i managed to track this down via an old friend in post:
        He said:
        Go to the left hand side

        Drag right

        For getting the Sizig of window in log and transfer or log and capture try making canvas smaller first then open those widows it will be that size

        If there’s still problems u can always chuck the preferences using something like preference manager software
