    Ingesting AVCHD workflow

    StanWelks Level 1

      I'm coming from FCP where I ingested AVCHD footage straight from my camera, and only brought in the footage that I needed using I and O points during the ingesting process. With CS6 I see lots of people copying their entire cards to their hard drives and from there ingesting it into CS6. This seems it could quickly eat up a lot of hard drive space with copying large clips when you only need small segments. Is there a reason why it seems to be generally recommended to do it this way rather than just ingesting straight from the camera the parts you need?
